This year one of my goals is to read more of the classics. I read a lot of good books last year but I read even more fluff. They were fun while I was reading them, but I don't remember anything about them anymore. I want to read books that are more substantial this year.
Here is a list of some of my favorite books from last year. The are all different and I enjoyed them for different reasons. If you have a question about one of these or the others I read just let me know!
- The Hunger Games and Catching Fire - LOVE LOVE LOVED these books.
- They did it with love - Fun mystery, interesting twisted ending
- Number 1 Ladies Detective Agency - Cute and easy book. I loved how clean and simple it was.
- City of Bones, City of Ashes, City of Glass - Great books to read when done with The Huger Games. Not quite as good but I really enjoyed reading them.
- The Guernsey Literary and Potato Peel Pie Society - Loved this book a lot more than I had imagined. Interesting story and cute little romance.
- Miss Pettigrew Lives for a Day - Loved the movie, wanted to read the book.
- Murder on the Orient Express - I love Agatha Crisitie. There is a reason why this is a classic Mystery.
- Austenland - Fun book for Pride and Prejudice lovers.
- Love After All - One of my favorite LDS Romances.

- The Help - Really interesting book, I think it should be made into a classic.
- The Lovers' Knot - Another fun mystery with a little romance on the side.

- I'll find you - Great LDS mystery, reread it and enjoyed it as much as the first time.
- Time and Eternity - A new LDS Romance to me that I still remember, so it must have been good.
