Top Ten Books I’ve Read So Far in 2015

Top Ten Tuesday is hosted by The Broke and the Bookish.

As I compile this list, I am shocked by how many books I have already read this year! I have been working on my speed reading tricks so I can read even more and I think I am making progress. Now I just need to figure out a way for my eyes to not be so tired after work so I can read more in the evening! Any tricks or ideas?

1.  Butternut Summer by Mary McNear (Book 2 in the Butternut Lake Series) – I really love this series – maybe because I am from Iowa and I love the small town feel, maybe because I can relate to the main character as a single mother with a deadbeat baby daddy, who knows?!? I really enjoy being able to relate to the books that I am reading.

2. Up at Butternut Lake by Mary McNear (Book 1 in the Butternut Lake Series) – What a true hopeless romantic storyline. I really enjoyed this book – thankful the cover drew me in at my local library!

3. Spring Fever by Mary Kay Andrews – Please tell me one female that doesn’t enjoy reading southern women’s fiction and I will recommend them to read a book written by Mary Kay Andrews.

4. Summer Rental by Mary Kay Andrews – This book wanted me to go rent a beach bungalow with some of my best girlfriends and just kick back and relax.

5. A Life Intercepted by Charles Martin – A girl that has a football heart and a boy that has all the potential in the world if someone would just give him the tools. What a great story!

6. The Princesses of Iowa by M. Molly Backes – I chose this book for my ‘Read a book based in your hometown’ challenge in the PopSugar’s 2015 Ultimate Reading Challenge. Granted this book is not based in my hometown of Anthon, Iowa but it is based in Iowa so therefore it counts, by my reasoning.

7. Garden Spells (Waverly Family #1) by Sarah Addison Allen – I am not one to partake in the fantasy-esque type of books but this book was written very well and that the ‘witchcraft’ didn’t seem to out of the ordinary.

8. One Plus One by Jojo Moyes – Oh my goodness, how I could relate to this book. There is always something that you want/need and not enough money to do it. I read this book in one weekend (between playing with the kids).

9. Looking for Alaska by John Green – Warning – do not listen to this book while you drive – you may cry! I have enjoyed every book by John Green that I have read but this one has been his best in my opinion.

10. Unwritten by Charles Martin – I really enjoy reading books set in locations that I am familiar with. I read this book over a holiday vacation and I was upset when I finished because I wanted more yet I was pleased with the story. I have not come across a book by Charles Martin that I don’t like and I don’t think I will.
