Reading List

The past few years I’ve leaned towards non-fiction books. But this year, I think after reading this, I dove head first into fiction. The rebel in me likes that it completely swerves from my original book list and each book is just a library reservation whim.

Tree Grows in Brooklyn

  1. The Unlikely Pilgrimage of Harold Fry – Goodness.  This book.  Trust me, just read it.
  2. How to Win Friends and Influence People – Ridiculous title, I know. I’m going to use the phrase, “Don’t judge a book by it’s title.” here. Quick and easy read with solid advice in just how to be a nice person basically.
  3. The Girl on the Train – This was an impulse iBook purchase that I could not stop reading.  Seriously addictive.
  4. A Tree Grows in Brooklyn – I believe this was suggested on a podcast I listen to and I am forever grateful for the suggestion. Francie Nolan truly stole my heart. I love a good coming of age story and even more when it’s set in the early 1900’s and in New York.
  5. All the Light We Cannot See – Everyone and their mother is reading this book.  This is one I’m listening to through Audible and am hopeful to finish it while on our trip.
  6. Brooklyn – After watching the film, I reserved this book at the library.  I have never really been a fan of reading the book after watching the movie but it’s so good.  The inner dialogue of the main character that you have to rely on inferences from the movie create a whole new experience.  I’ve already reserved a few of the author’s other works to hopefully have as a trip book.
