83 Books Later...

My friend Elisa and I have a goal to read 50 books every year. I don't think either one of us has ever reached this goal until this year when I ended up reading 83. How crazy is that?! I never could have done it if I hadn't gotten let go from my job and had it taken so long to find a new one.
Here are my picks for the best books I read this year...
P.S. I Love You: Cecelia Ahern~> This is the first book that I read from this author, and I love her. Her books have so much feeling in them. They make you laugh and cry. The movie sucked, but the book is awesome.
Love Walked In: Marisa De Los Santos~> I'm not really sure what it was about this book that capitavated me into liking it. The main character finds that man of her dreams, but falls in love with more than just him. It's a touching novel about finding love in someone that you never expected to find it in.
Slightly Single: Wendy Markham~> I liked this book because I felt like the character was like any other average girl, trying to improve her life. I know that over this past year I said that I wanted to improve my life a million times and never did. She does. It was kind of motivating. (Sidenote: While there are other books in this series, this is the best, the others just come off as unrealistic).
Water For Elephants: Sara Gruen~> My mom read this for book club and said I should read it. So I finally did, and it was super good. I hate the circus and that's why it took me so long to read it, but it's more than just about life at the circus. It's about how it changed one man's life when he wasn't expecting it.
I read lots of good books this year, but these are probably the most noteworthy. Hope you got to read lots of good books this year.
