Welcome 2020!

Happy new year, book friends! I’ve already set my Goodreads Challenge for 2020 and there’s a stack of books calling my name.

My book haul from Christmas!

To celebrate the end of 2019 and the beginning of 2020, here’s the list of all 27 books I read last year. This year I’m aiming for 30!

Fiction:

Audiobooks:

  • Bossypants by Tina Fey
    • It was so fun to listen to this one. I found the beginning a little slow, but absolutely loved it by the end. I highly recommend it!
  • Yes, Please by Amy Poehler
    • I adored this book, and like Bossypants, it was so fun to listen to. Definitely one of my all-time favorite celebrity books!
  • Holiday Greetings from Sugar and Booze from Ana Gasteyer
  • The Greatest Love Story Ever Told by Megan Mullally and Nick Offerman
  • Is Everyone Hanging Out Without Me? by Mindy Kaling

Poetry:

  • A Thousand Mornings by Mary Oliver
    • One word: Gorgeous.
  • Stumbling Towards Happiness by Kat Lehmann

Essays:

  • The Places I Stopped on the Way Home by Meg Fee
    • Ah. This book has my soul. To say I adored this book is an understatement. The writing is very similar to the way I write and I immediately became attached. I purposely read this book slowly because I wanted to savor every page. It was incredible to feel seen by someone you’ve never met. I felt very much in tune with this book. Hopefully this year I can put into more eloquent words how much this book means to me. (Stay tuned.)

Non-Fiction:

  • Anthony Bourdain Remembered by CNN
  • Big Magic by Elizabeth Gilbert
    • I continue to reference this book constantly.

Self-Help:

  • Who Moved My Cheese? by Dr. Spencer Johnson
  • In Conclusion, Don’t Worry About It by Lauren Graham

Children’s Literature:

  • Julián Is a Mermaid by Jessica Love
    • This book is beautiful. I’ve bought it multiple times as gifts for the kids in my life. This story about acceptance is one that all children (and adults, for that matter) should read.

To round out my wrap up post, here’s my top 5 favorite wines from 2019:

  • Kim Crawford Sauvignon Blanc (New Zealand)
  • Auburn Road Sole (New Jersey)
  • Chloe Prosecco (Italy)
  • Dreaming Tree Pinot Noir (California)
  • Bright Cellars Azuli Sauvignon Blanc (Chile)
