One book every week. That was the challenge I set for myself on this day last year for my 28th birthday.
Did I get to 52 books? Sadly, no. But, I averaged three books a month, which is more than I had been reading. So here's the list of 37 books I read over the last 365 days. The year started with the heavy hitting Harry Potter (which I don't recommend you read at all - one of my least favorites on this list).
I'm adding a * by the books I DO highly recommend though. There are some must-reads on this list.
1 - Harry Potter and the Cursed Child - J.K. Rowling 2 - Nice Girls Don't Get the Corner Office - Lois Frankel 3 - Year of Yes - Shonda Rhimes 4 - Find Your Extraordinary - Jessica Herrin* 5 - Getting Real - Gretchen Carlson 6 - Settle for More - Megan Kelly 7 - Heaven Came to Me - Marlene Sommers 8 - Shaken - Tim Tebow 9 - Act Like a Success - Steve Harvey* 10 - The Happiness Dare - Jennifer Dukes Lee* 11 - Designing Your Life - Bill Burnett & Dave Evans 12 - You are a Badass - Jen Sincero* 13 - Between Breaths - Elizabeth Vargas 14 - The Energy Bus - Jon Gordon 15 - My Pocket Yoga - Adams Media 16 - Own It - Sallie Krawcheck 17 - 7 Women - Eric Metaxas 18 - Talking As Fast As I Can - Lauren Graham* 19 - Health Secrets - Readers Digest 20 - The Art of Social Media - Guy Kawasaki & Peg Fitzpatrick 21 - Above the Line - Urban Meyer* 22 - Leave Your Mark - Aliza Licht* 23 - Born to Blog - Mark Schaefer and Stanford Smith 24 - The Body Reset - Harley Pasternak 25 - All Marketers are Liars / Storytellers - Seth Godin 26 - Meditations from A Simple Path - Mother Teresa 27 - It - Paula Froelich 28 - On Becoming Fearless - Arianna Huffington 29 - The 15 Invaluable Laws of Growth - John Maxwell 30 - When No One Was Watching - Carli Lloyd* 31 - Daring Greatly - Brene Brown* 32 - The Boys in the Boat - Daniel James Brown 33 - Journey to a Better You - Joel Osteen 34 - Every Body Yoga - Jessamyn Stanley 35 - Big Magic - Elizabeth Gilbert* 36 - Still Foolin' 'Em - Billy Crystal 37 - No Greater Love - Mother Teresa *
