My Life In Books


I saw this great post on 746 Books and thought it would be really fun to try myself.  The goal is to choose my favorite book published each year from the time I was born to the present year.  I did have some struggles because apparently I haven’t read many books published in the 80’s and early 90’s.  And in the later 2000s I also had trouble because I had read so many good books.  Since it is only April and I haven’t read many 2017 releases yet I will only be going up to 2016.


1986: The Autobiography of Henry VIII by Margaret George

1987: Mandie and the Hidden Treasure by Lois Gladys Leppard

  1. Your post turned out really good! I want to try this post, but I would not have enough books to cover all the years, haha. I haven’t read very many older books, especially 90s and early 00s. Catching Fire is my favorite of the three Hunger Games books. Yay Mistborn! 😀 I need to read the second book! The Bone Season, Maybe Someday, Shadow and Bone, The Serpent King…lovelovelovelove.
