    • http://www.kayliwanders.com/ Kayli Schattner

    Great list! The Fault in our stars is lovely but I was sooo moved by The Glass Castle! x

    • http://www.kayliwanders.com/ Kayli Schattner

      The Glass Castle was simply fantastic! Half Broke Horses is by the same writer…very good!

    Love this, Kayli! I stayed up way past my bed time the other night inhaling The Fault in Our Stars. Tissue central :)

    • http://www.kayliwanders.com/ Kayli Schattner

      Me too!! I read it all in one night. When I started crying my boyfriend tried consoling me but I yelled at him and told me to let me just have a moment…seriously overly emotional! ;p

  • http://clothesandquotes.blogspot.com/ shannon

    The Glass Castle is my absolute favorite book of all time! Everyone should read that! I read both Prep and Freewheelin’ Time, but I don’t really remember them…maybe I should reread :)

    TFioS is always a good choice. I may have to look into these to find my April read!

    • http://www.kayliwanders.com/ Kayli Schattner

      Yay!! Let me know if you end up choosing one, Mo!

  • Cachoo Joo

    Ahhh I have The Fault In Our Stars but haven’t read it yet! Gahh!! I’m trying to avoid watching the trailer for the movie until I at least start hah haven’t heard a bad thing yet about that book :) sounds like a good ‘un for sure!

    • http://www.kayliwanders.com/ Kayli Schattner

      Ah, you will love it! Read it in a little over 3 hours and cried my eyes out!

  • http://megancstroup.blogspot.com/ Megan C. Stroup

    I’ve only actually read two of these (The Glass Castle and The Fault in Our Stars). Which of the others is your favorite? I need to add it to my list! :)

    • http://www.kayliwanders.com/ Kayli Schattner

      Those are such good choices! I’d have to say choose between either The Paris Wife or Half Broke Horses…but it really depends on what you’re looking for! I really liked The Paris Wife because I’m into Hemingway and Half Broke Horses was by the same author as The Glass Castle (which I loved!)

      • http://megancstroup.blogspot.com/ Megan C. Stroup

        Thanks! I think I’ll read The Paris Wife next – I love historical fiction, and I actually didn’t really care for The Glass Castle (eek! I know! I feel like I’m the only reader in the whole world who didn’t like that book haha). Can’t wait!

  • Cole Nemeth

    I have not read any of these but have been looking for new books to read! Thanks for sharing, I’ll keep this list in mind next time I am at the library :)

  • http://www.endlessblissblog.com/ Tiffany Khyla

    Yay! A fellow bookworm! I’m obsessed with The Fault in Our Stars. Seriously. Cried. I never cry in books. Except Harry Potter, but that’s a different story. I had to read The Glass Castle for school a long time ago, but I don’t remember anything about it, so I’ll definitely have to take it off the shelf and re-read!

  • Melissa Haag

    I have picked up The Paris Wife before and put it back. I’ll have to check it out!

  • http://www.spiffykerms.com Nancy

    I haven’t picked up a book in ages, I’m not really a novel reader to be honest, I stick to online reading (news/blogs).

  • http://www.oliveandivyblog.com/ Chelsea

    I need to read more! I have been wanting to read Where’d You Go Bernadette purely because I love the cover, haha.

  • http://www.misadventureswithandi.com Andi Fisher

    I am always looking for new books to read on my commute, there are definitely some on this list to check out!

  • Lily @ From Lily With Love

    I’m currently reading both The Paris Wife and Where’d You Go, Bernadette! The Paris Wife is really good so far; I don’t like WYGB so much, though. I’m a sucker for a good reading list! These are going on my What to Read Next list :)

  • http://www.simplysinova.com/ SimplySinova

    I LOVE LOVE LOVE this! I’m almost open to new reading suggestions! I’ve been meaning to pick up Where’d You Go, Bernadette for some time now <3

    Great list. I have heard a lot about Fault in Our Stars. With a full time job, blogging and little ones under the age of 5, I barely get to read. But, I just need to get back into it.
