My Favorite Books

You asked — I answered!

Current recommendations are listed first. Oldies but goodies listed at the bottom.
The list is currently short, which reflects the state of my memory.
Hopefully both things will improve, so make sure to check back!

DisclaimerThese are all pretty straightforward contemporary literature. I’m not a big chick lit, sci-fi, historical fiction, romance or “true crimes” fan, so if you are, you won’t find those genres listed here. 

Still Me by JoJo Moyes
Little Fires Everywhere by Celeste Ng
Maybe in Another Life
by Taylor Jenkins Reid
The People We Hate at the Wedding by Grant Ginder

Today Will Be Different by Maria Sempel
The Light Between Oceans
by M.L. Stedman
by Curtis Sittenfeld
The Sound of Gravel by Ruth Wariner (a memoir of growing up in a polygamist family)
Life and Other Near-Death Experiences
 by Camille Pagan
After You by JoJo Moyes (sequel to “Me Before You” and every bit as good)
Where’d You Go Bernadette
by Maria Sempel
What Alice Forgot
by Liane Moriarty (quickly becoming one of my favorite authors)
One Plus One
by JoJo Moyes (Obsessed with this book…and this family.)
The Husband’s Secret by Liane Moriarty
Big Little Lies by Liane Moriarty (didn’t like this as much as “The Husband’s Secret,” but still a page turner)
Glitter and Glue by Kelly Corrigan
Me Before You by JoJo Moyes (Almost as good as “One Plus One” — Moyes is quickly becoming one of my favorite authors.)
Gone Girl by Gillian Flynn (Please read this book before you see the movie in October. And please do not read the end first.)
This Is Where I Leave You by Jonathan Tropper (I love all his books.)
I Just Want to Pee Alone and I Just Want to Be Alone by ME and some other awesome people (Duh.)
Reconstructing Amelia by Kimberly McCreight
The Middle Place by Kelly Corrigan (You will fall in love with her and her father. I’ve read this book several times and love it more every time.)
God Shaped Hole by Tiffanie DeBartolo (This and the next book by DeBartolo are two of my all-time faves. Have re-read both several times.)
How to Kill a Rock Star by Tiffanie DeBartolo
The Help by Kathryn Stockett
Plan B by Jonathan Tropper
The Dive from Clausen’s Pier by Ann Packer
Getting Over Jack Wagner by Elise Juska (If you were a teen or pre-teen anytime in the 80’s you will love this book!)
Something Borrowed by Emily Giffin
Midwives by Chris Bohjalian
I Know This Much is True by Wally Lamb
American Wife by Curtis Sittenfeld
Prep by Curtis Sittenfeld


Make sure to check back when you need a good book to read!
I’ll keep updating as I keep reading…and as I keep remembering old favorites (which will be in direct correlation to how much wine I’ve had).

  • Tanya Erntson - As usual, I love everything on this list that I’ve read. My question is, how in the heck did you read Reconstructing Amelia and not just die? Having a daughter made reading this almost unbearable for me. I did love it, but it was a miserable love…ReplyCancel
