Top 5 Tuesday: Books!

Happy Tuesday!

Do you see this? This is me blogging two days in a row. I'm making improvements.
I'm linking up with Rachel from Just Peachy for Top 5 Tuesday! 
Now, go on over to her blog and join in on the fun.
Rachel {& her blog} is such a peach!
This week is books and at first I thought to myself, self, this is going to be hard.
I was never really a reader until recently. I usually spent my time in college reading textbooks and when I wasn't doing school work the last thing I wanted to do was read another book!
However, lately {and in the past few years} I have enjoyed a handful of books!

Here it goes..

Just Peachy

1. The Help
This book is just amazing! It is one of the few books that stays true to the movie and really was just touching. I really can't describe the book and how it made me feel. I highly recommend it to everyone!

2. How Starbucks saved my life.

I read this book when I was at OU for book club and loved it. It is a true story about an executive who finds himself divorced and jobless all in a matter of days. It is  a story about how he can't find a job and rebuilds himself through working for Starbucks. It is very inspirational and slightly depressing in some parts because you really do feel bad for the guy but still a great ready, and an easy read.

The five people you meet in Heaven.

I have read this book probably 6 times and I enjoy just as much every time I read it. It is a really good book that makes you stop and think about after life and how you should live and treat people every day. I love Mitch Albom's books!

Classic romantic book! This book is about a group of girls chasing to find the perfect man and the perfect ring! When I read it the first time I wasn't sure how I felt about the book and went back and re read it and fell in love. I think I had sever ADD the first time and couldn't focus, haha. It is just a nice, romantic, light read! LOVE it.

I mean I think every girl loves her some Emily Giffin! I have read all her books and I think I tend to favor this one because I read it first! I love love love the movie and can't wait for the next one to come out! Another good book by her is "Heart of the Matter!"

There! Those are my favorite books!
What are your favorites?

Have a good one-


  1. I LOVE The Help!! I don't know how it didn't make it onto my list!!

  2. i have read all of those books (except the harry winston one) and enjoyed them too :)

    cute blog you have!

    happy reading!!

  3. I love new books, Chasing Winston looks soo good.


  4. I just finished "Chasing Harry Winston" and I loved every moment of it! I loved the plot line of being with someone just because they're "perfect" and everyone else wants you to be with them. I was going through the same thing as I read this and it was perfect!


  5. I loved "Chasing Harry Winston"!!! And all of the Emily Giffin books are great!!

  6. Clearly since everyone is raving about it I need to read Chasing Harry Winston! It just went on my list for when I get my Kindle next week!

  7. Just found your blog, and I love it - definitely a new follower! The only ones on this list I've actually read are The Help and The 5 People you meet in Heaven, so great! I'll have to check out the rest of these.



I LOVE hearing from you guys! Feel free to comment and email me as much as you like :)
