I can't tell you how many of you have left comments or sent me emails asking for a book list from the podcast that Jen & I recently did. We both talked about books that we love and are reading now. Jen told us about a some of her favorites and I have added them all to my goodreads list (where I keep track of my books to read and books I have read) and so here they are for you:

Humor books that Jen loved:

Dad is Fat by Jim Gaffigan

Bossy Pants by Tina Fey – Jen said she's read this about 6 times and I have had this on my list forever and this will get read this summer by me!

Is Everyone Hanging Out Without Me  by Mindy Kaling – I have read this one and laughed through it all

David Sedaris books – I'm actually currently reading Let's Explore Diabetes with Owls and love it. I can't wait to read more from him. He writes humor essay's that are short and sweet.

Jen also loves food memoirs, which I can't say I've ever read a food memoir. Although memoirs are one of my favorite types of reads. Here are the food memoirs she mentioned:

Blood, Bones & Butter by Gabrielle Hamilton

Tender at the Bone by Ruth Reichl

Other books that we both mentioned:

Bird by Bird by Anne Lamott – I read this and highly recommend this!

The Bridget Jones books and the latest Mad About the Boy

The Alan Bradley series with the latest book: Speaking from Among the Bones

We both have read WILD this Spring and liked it. There's a movie coming out this Fall I think, so read this first.

There you go friends. That right there is a swell reading list for this summer if you are looking for one. If you have read these I'd love to hear your thoughts in the comments. Also, what is the best book you have read this year? Tell me in the comments so I can add to my ‘to-read' list!
