So I have shared A LOT of book posts on here, but there are some books that I read and reread over and over. I know some people are very anti rereading and that’s fine, but I love it. I feel like it’s comfort food. Some books just really stick with you. So today I want to share my favorite books and most of these are in similar categories but hopefully some of you will find new reads!

My Favorite Books

This is for sure a newer favorite, but I can’t stop thinking about The Idea Of You. I have made so many people read it. I first heard about it on one of my favorite podcasts, Bad On Paper. I read the book in a day and then reread it. I have probably read it 4 times. It’s so good and it really rips you apart.

One of my favorite books is by Bethany Chase, and it’s called The One That Got Away. So this book follows Sarina, an architect living in Austin, TX. She is in a long term relationship with a really great guy but the one that got away comes back into her life and she can’t help but be drawn to him. It’s such a great read and if you’ve ever had an old relationship come back into your life you will totally relate.

Colleen Hoover is one of my favorite authors. She can do romance, thriller, plot twists like no other. All of her books usually smack you across the face with some twist 2/3 through that you did not see coming. Two of my favorites of hers are Ugly Love and All Your Perfects. All Your Perfects hit so close to home for me for its story of infertility in a marriage. Both books are truly wonderful.

Taylor Jenkins Reid is another one who smacks you with a plot twist. My favorites of hers are her two first books. Forever Interrupted and After I do. I know most people love Daisy Jones and the Six and The Seven Husbands Of Evelyn Hugo but to me her first two are her best two.

I would like to preface this next one by saying save your judgment! LOL Tori Spelling’s book Stori Telling is so so so good. If you are at all interested in Hollywood bio’s you need to read this! I just suggested it to my friend, Heather and she said it may be the first book she finishes in the last 10 years.

I love Shonda Rhimes for her TV shows obviously, but her book, The Year Of Yes is one of the best books I have read. It’s equal parts bio and self help and really has you look at things differently in your own life.

Lastly, one of my favorite books I read the past few years was Educated. Such an interesting book about this woman’s life and her education or lack there of growing up.

So these are just some of my favorite books but please comment below with some of yours! I would love to add them to my reading list!
