2015 Reading Challenge #1

Back in January I made a list of 101 things I wanted to accomplish in 1001 days! Check it out here! On that list I said I wanted to read 104 books and I have the goal on my Goodreads 2015 Reading Challenge to read 52 books this year. I was off to a slow start and have six down at the moment! So I thought I would periodically share the books I’ve read throughout the challenge! Follow me on Goodreads!

1. Choose Your Own Autobiography-Neil Patrick Harris
I loveeeee NPH so much and this was such a fun read! Its an interactive read where you can choose which path to go down. Of course, I read it the full way through and didn’t follow the directions and still really enjoyed Harris’ sense of humor! I especially loved the way he wrote about the How I Met Your Mother chapter of his life!

2. You Can’t Make This Stuff Up: Life-Changing Lessons from Heaven- Theresa Caputo
I have an obsession with mediums and spirits and stuff and I love the Long Island Medium more than most people. This is her second book and I read her first one when it came out. I love her witty writing as a believer, it’s inspirational to read about the lessons spirit want us to learn to live a fulfilled life.

3. Inferno-Dan Brown
Dan Brown is a fantastic writer and his knowledge of history is fantastic. I loved this book because it took place in Italy and was based around one of my favorite things: The Divine Comedy by Dante Alighieri. There is a major plot-twist and a lot of action that keeps you on the edge of your seat the whole time.

4. Dark Places-Gillian Flynn
Probably my favorite read on this list! This book is exactly what it says DARK. I read this in less than two days because it was so hard to put down. I don’t want to give anything away so I’m just going to say go and read it! You will not regret it!

5. Yes Please-Amy Poehler
Amy Poehler is everything I aspire to be and more. I’m so obsessed with her and miss seeing her on my TV (RIP PARKS AND REC). Her stories were funny and they were real. I love how she wasn’t afraid to talk about her life. I love the way she talked about her children. It really shows that the funny girl has a sensitive side as well.

6. I Hate Myselfie: A Collection of Essays by Shane Dawson-Shane Dawson 
If you don’t know who Shane Dawson is you must live under a rock (or you don’t sit on YouTube for hours like I do). Shane is one of the funniest guys on the internet and I didn’t expect his book to be anything less. He wasn’t afraid to share his stories with us and I give him a lot of credit for everything he had gone through as a kid/teenager. He shared struggles with bullying, body image, and everything in between. It was really funny but I’m not going to lie, I cried a few times too!

So these are the books I’ve read so far in 2015! I’m currently reading two other books with two sitting in my kindle library waiting to be read! What books have you been reading this year? I want suggestions!!
