Books to Love

I usually read personal growth books and memoirs but I want to get back into fiction.

My all-time favorite books (in this order):

A Heartbreaking Work of Staggering Genius
The History of Love
She's Come Undone
The Glass Castle
Love in the Time of Cholera

I'm thinking of reading Gone Girl next, but would love any recommendations.

On another note, why do book clubs always fall apart? I've been part of two book clubs and they both disintegrated after one or two books. Related: This Etsy bag makes me laugh, and may answer my above question.

Another pressing question: To Kindle or not to Kindle? I love holding real books, reading in the bathtub, thumbing over the photographs, flipping through the tattered pages. But I know a Kindle is eco-friendly and convenient. I may be in the Dark Ages, but I don't want to give up my tattered, torn, underlined, annotated, loved, re-read books. Dilemma..


  1. Right after the shooting in Aurora, I read "The Boy Who Loved Tornados." It was very insightful about mental illness and the shootings that have been happening recently. I could not put it down. And I kindle and not kindle depending on my mood. ~Pito-son

  2. Pito-son, Thanks for the tip! Just looked up the book. Sounds like a fascinating read. It's on my list. :)
