My Favorite Books

Of the 75 books I read or listened to on audio this year, here are my 12 faves:

Fiction
What Alice Forgot by Liane Moriarty. Fun story about family and relationships.

The Sense of an Ending by Julian Barnes. Great literary fiction about truth and lies.

The Birds and the Bees by Milly Johnson. Happy to have discovered a new Sophie Kinsella-ish author.

Pride and Prejudice by Jane Austen. A very entertaining classic.

One Plus One by Jojo Moyes. Page-turner of a romance.

We Were Liars by E. Lockhart. Twisty novel by one of my favorite YA authors.

Nonfiction
Flip: The Inside Story of TV’s First Black Superstar by Kevin Cook.
Fascinating bio of this groundbreaking African-American comedian's life.

Unbroken by Laura Hillenbrand. Compelling bio of an Olympic athlete/prisoner-of-war.

I Remember Nothing by Nora Ephron. Warm and funny essays.

The President’s Club: Inside the World’s Most Exclusive Fraternity by Nancy Gibbs and Michael Duffy. I learned a lot about Hoover and all the Presidents after him.

Dad Is Fat by Jim Gaffigan. Hilarious, sweet memoir about raising five young children in a two-bedroom apartment in NYC.

Not That Kind of Girl by Lena Dunham. Surprised by what a great writer she is.
