1. Anna and the French Kiss by Stephanie Perkins - So I heard a lot of great reviews on this book and had to read it. And aww, this book is perfect. Funny and romantic but not too cheesy romantic, and just honest. A perfect Young Adult book. Definitely my favorite read in a while.

2. Wishful Drinking by Carrie Fischer - funny memoir but also serious on some levels. I liked the length and the book was pretty good overall, it was very honest. I would really like to see the play.

3. The Elephant to Hollywood by Michael Caine - Not the most interesting or my favorite autobiography just because there wasn't much drama, but to be honest, it's probably best that way and it did make me love Michael Caine even more. He seems like such a nice, genuine, man, almost an average joe. No drugs or anything bad, still happily married, always pleasant about his co-stars. He deserves all the success he has.

5. All the Pretty Horses by Cormac McCarthy - You guys! I remembered the other book I read! This one! And I remember why I didn't remember it, because it's unmemorable. I kind of like The Road better which is odd considering The Road is apocalyptic and a total downer, but I guess I don't like cowboys too much? I don't know.

6. The Wild Things by Dave Eggers - it was okay, the book like looks wise is so pretty but the story is cute. Not my favorite, I'm not obsessed with I like I know a lot of people that are but it's good.
