My 5 Favorite Books

I'm really trying to read more. I want to start designating a little chunk of time before bed to reading a leisure book to wind down, and I thought the most motivating way to do this would be to share my 5 favorite books and ask for your 5 in return! A list full of suggestions is sure to motivate me to run over to the library.


The Catcher in the Rye // My all time favorite book. This classic American novel is timeless for a reason; there's a relatable aspect in there for everyone, or at least a reminiscent idea for some. I could read this a million times

The Summer I Turned Pretty // This trilogy has got to be the best thing since neapolitan ice cream, and just as sweet. The three books are the best light reads you'll find, or at least in my eyes. I read them every summer and they simply don't get old. Wonderfully relatable for teenage girls.

Eloise // If you don't like Eloise I probably don't like you ;)

The Help // Such an amazing story, and an amazing lesson for anyone. An influential must-read for any woman!

Lessons from Madame Chic // A fabulous memoir about a french exchange students who narrates a few of the lessons she learned abroad.

Please share your 5 favorite's below! I'll add them to my list!


  1. Love your picks! Some of my favorites are Bossypants by Tina Fey, Is Everyone Hanging Out Without Me? by Mindy Kaling,the Pretty Little Liars series, A Separate Peace by John Knowles, and anything by Chelsea Handler!

  3. I've never heard of Lessons from Madame Chic, but just added it to my massive "to-read" list on Goodreads!

    My favorite books are To Kill a Mockingbird, Pride & Prejudice, Gone With the Wind and Anne of Green Gables.

    I also really loved Dirty Sexy Politics, the Century Trilogy and Phillipa Gregory novels.

  4. Love all of these books! We just read the Catcher in the Rye at school and it was amazing! If you like that book, I would recommend The Perks of Being a Wallflower, and my favorite timeless classic would definitely be The Great Gatsby!


  5. Who could forget eloise?

  6. The Help is an amazing book to read on your downtime! Other than that, my favorites would be Pride and Prejudice, Eat Pray Love, The Great Gatsby, and a good Stephen King novel when I'm feeling brave!
