Winter Reading

It's time to sit by the fire and enjoy some leisurely reading. Not like I'll be doing any leisurely reading with a newborn, but I figured I would share some of the books I've read in the past few months that I've really enjoyed.

1. BEAUTIFUL BOY
This is a touching story of a father's life with his drug addicted son.  Very touching and insightful novel. 

2. BOSSYPANTS
Oh Tina Fey! You always know how to make me laugh. A great, lighthearted book that will keep a smile on your face.

3. BORN ON A BLUE DAY
Such an amazing story of a brilliant human. Because I teach special education, I'm often drawn to books about individuals with disabilities. This book was fascinating! 

4.  DARK PLACES
After reading Gone Girl, I couldn't wait to read more by Gillian Flynn. This thriller will keep you up late turning the pages!

5.  LOOK ME IN THE EYE
I love all books by Augusten Burroughs, so when I found out his brother, John Elder Robinson, wrote a book, I knew I had to read it!  

6.  A MILLION LITTLE PIECES
This book is one of my favorites. Years ago it came out that the author wasn't truthful when writing this, but just go into it as if it were a fictional book. Regardless, it's a great read and remains one of my favorites.  

7.  WHITE GIRL PROBLEMS
OMG I couldn't stop laughing when reading this! It's ridiculously funny! 

8.  OUTLIERS
This is one of the most interesting books I've read. I'm looking forward to reading more from this author, Malcolm Gladwell. 

9.  REVENGE WEARS PRADA
I'm a huge fan of Lauren Weisberger and was super excited when this book came out!  It was fun tying up loose ends from The Devil Wears Prada.

10.  WHAT ALICE FORGOT
Love this author and this cute, girly book! A great, easy, fun read!
