Thanks for the request @ChrisK !!! To preface this list, I grew up basically LIVING at our local library. These days, I go through phases of reading voraciously and then not reading anything for months. I need to get into the habit of reading daily. If I took the time, i could come up with a more comprehensive list, but this will do in a pinch.
  1. Why Not Me by Mindy Kaling
    B80e7a56 568c 48a5 8719 de11c6a7f3a2
    I love her and I found myself actually laughing out loud which didn't surprise me, because as I mentioned before....I love her. And I want to hang out with her in real life which is why I want to live in her book.
  2. The Pillars of the Earth by Ken Follett
    7285c224 b862 4392 a2fd d33efd1c45d8
    I hesitated to read this because it was recommended by Oprah. I gave it a chance and Ken's world he created made me want to go to there. I don't feel cheated though, because while reading the book, I felt like I was living it.
  3. The Girl With The Dragon Tattoo by Stieg Larsson
    B765f81a 8cd7 4357 8b06 5e05eb254063
    I totally dig this book and both the Swedish version of the movie and the American version. It might just be because I lived in Sweden for a year, but reading it made me remember so many things about that year.
  4. The Gunslinger by Stephen King
    1c2588ad aa3e 48f8 a2af 75c222843c4b
    I stopped reading this series on book 5 which means I will have to start from the beginning....not such a bad thing. I loved the world Stephen created.
  5. A Confederacy of Dunces by John Kennedy Toole
    Ace5d4e4 7470 4648 9d84 c51e5f37f4d8
    The absurdity of Ignatius needs to be witnessed in person. That being said, I need to read this one again!
