|(not my favorites this year - just some random books I photographed)|
I like to wait until the very last second of the year to decide what my favorite books I read this year were. Not all of them were written this year, that is just when I read them. That being said, my favorites in no particular order are:
11/22/63 by Stephen King: Who knew that King could write such a beautiful love story? I loved this book so much.Viva la Stephen King!
Gone Girl by Gillian Flynn: I couldn't put this book down, and it blew my mind. Amazing and brilliant.
Wild by Cheryl Strayed: Inspiring. I have never so actively read a book in my life.
A Reliable Wife by Robert Goolrick: I stumbled upon this author thanks to my stepmother. Wow, I am glad she introduced us.
Looking for Alaska by John Green: I wanted to live within these pages.
Heading Out to Wonderful by Robert Goolrick: Yes, this was year of Goolrick love for me.
The Wisdom of the Shire: A Short Guide to a Long and Happy Life by Noble Smith: Everyone should read this book and live the Hobbit lifestyle.
Dark Places by Gillian Flynn: Flynn writes the scariest, craziest, smartest books.
And for some YA love:
The Diviners by Libba Bray: You have to love a book you learn from. Bray really researched this book well, and it had a little of everything for every reader.
The Raven Boys by Maggie Stiefvater: I just really loved these characters.
What about you? Did you read any of these? What did you think? What books did you love best this year?
