{day 13} Favorite Books


 Your 5 Favorite Books 


I read Animal Vegetable Miracle in college and it completely changed the way I thought about food. Honestly I knew things had a "season" but I don't know that I could have necessarily told you that asparagus typically "bloom" in March, or that onions are in season in the summer. These foods are always in the grocery store... so they're always "in season." This book really makes you reconsider your dietary choices, and the benefits of eating locally. 



I know everyone and their sister loves The Help. I'm no exception. I was a little dissappointed by the movie, but that's just because the book was that good. 



I finally picked up Tina Fey's book when I was in Ohio. I read the whole thing in two sittings. It's hilarious. I love her. 


Who didn't love the hunger games? I couldn't put down the series once I started. SO intense. LOVED it. 


This book really changed my life. In fact, I may read it again. It inspired my {25 before 25} project, and really just made me evaluate. I seriously think you should all go out and buy this book RIGHT now. Seriously. Go. I'll be here when you get back.

Tina Fey's book is one of my faves. Have you tried Let's Pretend This Never Happened: (A Mostly True Memoir). Hysterical.

Sara said...

So… I have never heard of the Happiness Project until reading this post but I may have to sneak onto Amazon right now and order it. I am pretty sure you sold me on it.

The Happiness Project is one of my all time favorites - it's life changing!! I am going to have to give Bossypants another shot - I couldn't get through it the first time but I'll have to try again!
