My 5 Favorite Books!

I absolutely LOVE starting a new book, but for some reason I have a hard time finishing it. I read up to where it really starts to get good and then I procrastinate like crazy trying to finish it, sometimes never finishing it.

So the few times that I do completely finish a book its pretty exciting. Here are 5 of my favorite books that once upon a time I finished and loved! 

1. Suzanne's Diary For Nicholas by James Patterson:  

This book has a special meaning to me because it was the first book I ever willingly finished. I have read it 3 times and I cry each time. Its easy to read, well written, and has an amazing storyline. Its focused around a girl named Katie who receives a diary from her ex that is written by his wife to their son. Complicated? You would think so, but James Patterson makes it super easy to understand and keep up with! They also made a movie that I heard mixed things about so definitely read the book first.

2. Spirit Junkie by Gabrielle Bernstein: 

Gabrielle Bernstein is one of my many heroes! She has a variety of books but Spirit Junkie goes into more depth about her life story. I love how honest she is in this book and I love that she gives solutions for everything. She is a great example of someone who focuses on the positive rather than the negative. She also teaches bits from A Course In Miracles making its teachings easy to understand. If you are wanting some well written guidance in your life check out Spirit Junkie. 

3. The Pact by Jodi Picoult: 

Jodi Picoult is one of my very favorite authors. She manages to consistently write books that I enjoy reading. The Pact was the first book I read of hers and I loved it! In short its about two teenagers Chris and Emily who are together. Emily is found shot by what looks like a suicide pact between her and her boyfriend. It sounds like a rough read but its really good. 

4. The Perks Of Being A Wallflower by Stephen Chbosky:  

This is one of those books that you can literally read in one sitting. Its small, well written, and it draws you in pretty quickly. I read it when I heard they were making a movie. Everyone was talking about how amazing it was so I wanted to join in on the fun. The book was fantastic! The movie was horrible in my opinion. The movie is one I could have gone without seeing, but the book I am really happy I read.

5. The Alchemist by Paulo Coelho:  

I have read this book twice, once when I was like 14 and again when I was 20. I finished it when I was 14 and loved it. Its all about finding your destiny, your dream, and life being about the journey rather than the destination. When I tried reading it again as an adult I had a hard time with it. I got half way through and stopped. This will always be one of my favorite books because of the memory I have from reading it as a kid but I need to give it another go around now with the perspective as an adult. 

I am currently reading The Seat Of The Soul by Gary Zukav and A Million Little Pieces by James Frey both of which are amazing and I plan on finishing! So expect reviews soon...

What is your favorite book? 

Much love!
