Have you read any of these books? What did you think?

Also, Let me know what books you have been loving lately!

  1. Wow, you’ve been very busy! I was first introduced to Roxane Gay’s work a few years back at a writers’ festival. She’s a great author and a remarkable woman

  2. That is such a great list of books you have read so far, absolutely amazed at it. I can totally relate how it feels, so satisfying 🙂 I am really working to set some time aside every day for reading after kids.

  3. I’ve read about half of the fiction – Cukoo’s Calling is on the pile of goodies to read next. You’ve got a great variety of interests.

  4. You are my reading inspiration! I absolutely love to read but struggle to find the time to really sit down and get absorbed. I absolutely loved Water For Elephants by Sara Gruen – A lot there that are on my to-read list now… Thank you 🙂

  5. Wow! Congrats on your progress! I’ve only read 38 books so far haha…I read so many Chicken Soup books in high school, how did you like Chicken Soup for the Women’s Soul?

  6. Holy cow. This is incredible. I’m having trouble reading one book a month right now. I almost always read before bed and end up dozing off. You Are a Badass is SO good! And You Are a Badass at Making Money is next on my list. It’s already on the shelf haha. Also, Animal Farm is one of my favs, thanks to high school freshman English!

  7. I have read a lot of these and loved them! You have good taste! I can’t wait to read the others on this list!

  8. Amazing!! Matilda is a childhood favorite of mine. I’ve also read the first three Harry Potter books this year too! I have You Are A Badass on my TBR list. I hope to get to it one day! Keep up the awesome job with reading! 🙂

  9. Wow you’re incredible! I can barely get through the one book I started months ago. Not that i’m not a reader, just being a blogger always takes priority to reading other peoples work. =)

  10. 100 books already is amazing! And it looks like you tackled quite a few series. I love the Percy Jackson series and, of course, Twilight. I can’t help it . . . it’s one of my guilty pleasures 🙂 Great post and congrats on 100!

  11. I’m currently reading The Golem and the Jinni by Helene Wecker, and I have absolutely loved it thus far! I’ve made so many spiritual connections with some of the characters and it has overall been such a good read.

    1. So far my favorites are Educated, A Long Way Home, and When Breath Becomes Air:) What is your favorite memoir you have ever read?

  12. Wow great list. I love to read and read regularly for years. But my blog and the gazillion blogging related tasks have eaten into my reading time. You’ve inspired to get back to it.

  13. So many good choices here! At first, I was wondering if you taught 7-12 ELA—I have a lot of the titles from the first section in my classroom. I’m currently reading The Girl Who Drank the Moon and The Port Chicago 50.

  14. Thanks for your great list! I still cherish having read ‘Peter Pan’, ‘Animal Farm’ & having watched ‘Harry Potter’ movies. I’ll even add ‘Little Women’ by Louisa May Alcott.

    1. Peter Pan really blew me away! It has been one of my favorites this year:)
