2015 Reading List (so far)

My new years resolutions always seem to be somewhat similar year after year.

Go to more yoga classes. Be better about keeping in touch with far-away friends. Read more.

Because of the last one, I usually create a reading list in January of books I want to pick up in the new year. I’ve compiled a short list already and want to share it with you, but I also want to ask you for your book recommendations.

Here’s what I got so far:

  • Where’d You Go Bernadette by Maria Semple (I actually just finished this. But wanted to include it to recommend it to y’all. It’s really silly and moves quickly).

  • Wild by Cheryl Strayed (this is what I’m reading next. I just saw the movie and really liked it. I’m anxious to read the book, because I’m sure it will be even better).

  • Everything is Perfect When You’re a Liar by Kelly Oxford (A friend gave this to me for Christmas (should I be offended?) but apparently Kelly Oxford is really fun and this book is just the same).

  • The Catcher in the Rye by J. D. Salinger (because I’ve read it every year since high school).

  • Columbine by Dave Cullen (so sad, I know. But weirdly fascinating).

  • Love Stories of World War II Compiled by Larry King (WWII is so fascinating, and who doesn’t love a good love story? Especially when they’re real).

  • Everything I Never Told You by Celeste NG (A murder mystery that I’ve heard really great things about).

  • The Opposite of Loneliness: Essays and Stories by Marina Keegan (The author passed away before the book was published, which is so sad but makes the book even more meaningful).

  • Tiny Beautiful Things: Advice on Love and Life from Dear Sugar by Cheryl Strayed (I’m clearly on a Cheryl Strayed kick. Do you know that a Dear Sugar Podcast is happening!?)

So tell me. What have you read and loved? What have you been craving to read? I need more books on my list!

Oh, also, the top photo up there is from http://undergroundnewyorkpubliclibrary.com/  Which shows photos of people reading on the Subway. It’s strangely fascinating.

Thanks for stoping by friends.

xo, E
