Favorite Things

Books

One of my very, very favorite things in the world are books.  The most indulgent weekend for me is to hike somewhere remote and spend a few days just reading and reading.  The trick is, though, to have the right reading material.  Because, of course, not all books are equal.

This year, I read a few books that will remain on my favorite list for a long time:

1.  The Girl with the Dragon Tatoo by Steig Larsen.  (read the trilogy) I saw the movie and so thought that I didn’t need to read the books – WRONG.  The books were fantastic, and I could not put them down.  His other two books:  The Girl who Played with Fire, The Girl who kicked the Hornets Nest.

2.   Nothing to Envy: Ordinary Lives in North Korea by Barbara Demick  This was an amazing, eye opening view into the lives of those who live in North Korea.  I felt much more educated about the world after reading this book.

3.  Unbroken: A World War II Story of Survival, Resilience, and Redemption by Laura Hillenbrand  A true story written by a brilliant story teller.  If you have not read this story, you must!

What are your favorite reads of this year?  We would love to hear them!
