For 2014, I had a really difficult time coming up with a list of my favorite books of the year, mostly because I didn't read a ton of books that I loved. :(
Thankfully, 2015 was a very different reading experience and I read a lot of really neat books. As I looked at all of the books that I read, I noticed that there was a theme connecting some of my favorites: books that influenced how I think about life and/or how I live. In addition, there were some great fiction books I read as well.
Thank you again for reading my blog! I hope that 2016 has lots of good books in store for all of us!
Let's start with my favorite fiction:
1. The Girl on the Train by Paula Hawkins
2. The Opposite of Loneliness by Marina Keegan
3. Our Souls at Night by Kent Haruf
4. Wonder by R.J. Palacio
Onto the non-fiction books that changed how I think about life/organize/think about life:
1. The Diary of a Young Girl by Anne Frank
2. The Life-Changing Magic of Tidying Up: The Japanese Art of Decluttering and Organizing by Marie Kondo
3. Essentialism: The Disciplined Pursuit of Less by Greg McKeown
4. Football for Dummies by Howie Long
5. The Checklist Manifesto: How to Get Things Right by Atul Gawande
