The Broke and the Bookish is the Top Ten Books I've Read in the Last 3 Years that are All Time Favorites.
2. The House on Blackberry Hill by Donna Alward - While this book wasn't flawless I thoroughly enjoyed the reading experience. I still have house envy!
3. People I Want to Punch in the Throat: Competitive Crafters, Drop-Off Despots, and Other Suburban Scourges by Jen Mann - I've followed Jen Mann's blog of the same name for years but while it was sometimes funny it wasn't a favorite. It turns out Jen is fantastic in book form. The only problem is that it's a very specific audience. But if you've done the volunteer circuit or spent most of your Saturdays at soccer fields than you really must read this book.
4. Burnt Toast Makes You Sing Good: A Memoir of Food and Love from an American Midwest Family by Kathleen Flinn - This was my first book by Flinn but it won't be my last. The story involving her mother and the rooster still makes me laugh.
5. Jennifer, Gwyneth and Me: The Pursuit of Happiness, One Celebrity at a Time by Rachel Bertsche - This is one I've probably recommended a dozen times since I read it. This funny and honest book about trying out different celebrities habits was both entertaining and touching.
7. Delancey: A Man, A Woman, A Restaurant, A Marriage by Molly Wizenberg - I loved Wizenberg's A Homemade Life and I wasn't sure what to expect from this one. If possible I made have enjoyed this one even more and it made me never EVER want to open a restaurant!
8. The Birds and Other Stories by Daphne du Maurier - I've always loved Rebecca and I've always thought it was creepy but never saw how a book could be truly scary. Until I read this book. I'll never look at birds the same way again!
9. The Tastemakers: Why We're Crazy for Cupcakes but Fed Up with Fondue by David Sax - This is the book I've probably referenced and recommended the most in the last year. If you're interested at all in food or food trends than you must read this book!
10. The Happiness Project: Or Why I Spent a Year Trying to Sing in the Morning, Clean My Closets, Fight Right, Read Aristotle, and Generally Have More Fun by Gretchen Rubin.- When I finished this book I can definitely say I did not consider Rubin a friend but I did learn so much from this book. This is one of the few books I've read as an adult that I actually took notes while reading and I still reference those notes periodically.
