TOP TEN FAVORITE BOOKS FROM THE PAST FIVE YEARS

tumblr_n31qgbuvkP1ria6ybo1_4001. Is Everyone Hanging Out Without Me? by Mindy Kaling | This was the first memoir I’d ever read, much less one by a comedian. Before the book, I barely knew who Mindy was (I read it in the middle of the first season of The Mindy Project). I laughed out loud. I never laugh out loud when I’m reading. I wish Mindy was my best friend (and I now religiously watch The Mindy Project).

2. Stolen Songbird by Danielle L. Jensen | This book was so creative—I’ve certainly never read a book about trolls, much less one where said trolls are hotties. This book was fabulous and I can’t wait for book two. Read my original review here.

3. Something Borrowed by Emily Giffin | Not only did this get me hooked on other Giffin books, but Jennifer Weiner, too. I’d never read an adult fiction novel that I actually enjoyed, and this totally changed the game for me. Hated the movie, though.

4. Columbine by Dave Cullen | It had been a devastatingly long time since I’d read a real nonfiction book—as in college, guys.  I recently read this and will not be going without nonfiction for so long ever again. This book was amazing.

5. Outlander by Diana Gabaldon | If you would have asked me a year ago if I liked historical fiction, I would have laughed and said no way. Outlander made me realize that I can enjoy historical fiction, and I’ve read several since then. Review here.

Gone6. Made For You by Melissa Marr – DUH. I’m so in love with this book, you can read my review here.

7. Pointe by Brandy Colbert – this book was AMAZING. So well written. It still sticks in my mind. I really hope Colbert is working on another book! (I just checked and she is – but it won’t be out until 2017! Consider me heartbroken.)

8. The Program by Suzanne Young – I LOVED this book, and I still do. There is not another world like it that I’ve read about, and it covered a lot of really touchy topics (like teen suicide) very responsibly and well.

9. Gone Girl by Gillian Flynn – this book is VERY high up on my list of favorites, along with everything else she’s ever written. Flynn is a master of words, that is for sure!

10. Under the Never Sky by Veronica Rossi – this is another book/series that takes place in a world that I could never have thought up myself. While I’ve been very open with my opinion of how everything ended in the third book, I still absolutely love this one and the sequel.
