2016 Books
One my 2016 New Years Resolutions (and the one I was able to keep pretty well) was to read everyday. Here's a list of what I've read thus far. You can pick your jaw off the floor now, these aren't exactly considered deep or heavy reads. The list can be found here.

You can't go wrong with these authors.
(Read: I've read every single one of their books.)

Stories that aren't true (some call these "fiction")
The Art of French Kissing by Kristin Harmel - (It isn't what you think, I promise!)

The Devil Wears Prada by Lauren Weisberger

Diary of a Mad Fat Girl by Stephanie McAfee

Goundswell by Katie Lee

Look Again by Lisa Scottoline - Not my typical go to chick lit, but I couldn't put it down. 

A Million Little Pieces by James Fray - Despite the controversy, this is a good and challenging read (thanks to the lack of major punctuation). 

The Nanny Diaries by Emily Mclaughlin and Nicola Kraus

One Fifth Avenue by Candace Bushnell - I'm not a Sex in the City gal, but this book's good.

Stay by Allie Larkin - A book about a dog and the dog doesn't die!

The Wives of Bath by Wendy Holden

Stories that are semi-true (also known as "non-fiction")
The Defense Never Rests: A Lawyer's Quest For The Gospel by Craig Parton - A church book! And one I can really relate to.

A Girl Named Zippy by Haven Kimmel - This book will make you laugh until you cry until you laugh again. 

It's Not Me It's You by Stefanie Wilder-Taylor - Very funny (I like funny) and a one sitting read. She also has some mommy books I'm going to check out this summer (despite not being a mommy).

Marcus of Umbria by Justine van der Leun


Moose: A Memoir of Fat Camp by Stephanie Klein

My Life From Scratch by Gesine Bullock-Prado - Sister of Sandra Bullock. Comes with some yummy recipes. Originally released as "Confessions of a Closet Master Baker."


White House Nannies: True Tales From the Other Department of Homeland Security by Barbara Kline - If you enjoy politics and celebrities (and who doesn't?) you'll enjoy this one.
