What I’ve Read So Far This Year
If you follow me on Twitter (@ashleyspivey) you’ll know that I’m always raving about The Fault In Our Stars and occasionally I update everyone on what I’m reading.
Lately, I’ve gotten so many requests for some good reads that I decided to show y’all what I’ve read so far this year!
This book is kind of like a cross between Twilight and 50 Shades of Grey!
I loved this book and how the protagonist tried to model her love life after Victorian love stories. This book will resonate with you if you are up on your Victorian literature and are still trying to figure out what to do with your love life!
Jennifer Weiner recommended this novel to me and it is epic! So many things happen in this book that you’ll wonder how the author fit it all into a relatively short novel.
This is my favorite book ever. If you haven’t read it yet - start now!
I found this book through the blog http://www.eatliverun.com/ (she always has great book recommendations) and this is such a charming real-life story! When Kristine has trouble finding love on her own, her grandma ends up giving her the best love advice!
This novel will make you think twice about how you treat people and will have you cheering for the main character by the end of the book!
Great book about love, betrayal, and how we never really know our families!
Cute novel about a Dad getting to know his son over the course of a weekend when they both have some major life changes.
Jump on the bandwagon y’all and read the entire series! Just don’t expect it to be very well written :) Also, make sure you aren’t sitting beside someone when you read it!
As Possessionista described this: It’s Mean Girls meets Groundhog Day. I really enjoyed this book even though I thought it was going to be really repetitive!
If you love The Fault In Our Stars, then you will love this book by John Green also. I cried so hard during this book that I had to watch 3 episodes of New Girl to cheer myself up.
A 30 year-old woman and a 16 year-old boy are stranded on an island - of course things are gonna get weird! I could not put this book down!
If you love the John Green novels that I recommended, then you will love this as well. They are also making a movie about it right now!
I was in North Carolina recently so I had to read a NC author! I think this is one of Sparks’ best!
This book infuriated me, educated me, and made me want to become a history teacher so the cycle of teaching kids bad history will stop!
This is what I’m currently reading and I’ve heard nothing but great things about it!
So what are y’all currently reading? Anything I should add to my list?

- tanglesoflove said: You should check out The Paris Wife by Paula McLain, it’s about Ernest Hemingway’s first marriage. Also, The Raising was fantastic. It’s by Laura Kasischke, she’s a poet as well so it’s beautifully written.
