I don't consider myself a bookworm, but I do love to read and I always enjoy adding books to my bookshelf. And no, it's not just because I love styling shelves. If you've been reading around here long enough, you know that I spent all of 2014 working on bulking up my bookshelf, buying one book each month. As a teacher, I believe that books are the gateway to adventure and there can never be too many in a home.

This Spring Break I'll be doing some actual traveling (more on that during this month's The Circle linkup!) and am looking for some books to take along with me--which is where YOU come into play! I've created a list of books on my to-read list, as well as some books I hope to get my hands on when they're released. But I'd love to know if you have any books that you'd recommend, fiction and non-fiction alike.

Why Not Me?  by Mindy Kaling | This girl needs no introduction. I actually never got to finish her first book because I checked it out from the library and was in the middle of three other books at the time, but I really hope to check both of this one off my to-read list this Spring Break

For the Love by Jen Hatmaker | This book went viral on social media a few months ago--I feel like every blogger, mother, and wife was posting it on Facebook and Instagram. I haven't read any of Jen's books yet, but I've only heard good things about this one so I'm giving it a shot.

Rising Strong and I Thought it was Just Me (both) by Brené Brown | I love this lady but have never read any of her books and need to change that soon!

Three Wishes by Liane Moriarty | I've heard so many great things about Liane's work on so many different blogs but have never read any of her books, either. If bloggers love her, I should too, right?

Attachments by Rainbow Rowell | This is another book I found on a blog and it sounds fascinating, especially in this day and age where meeting people and communicating online is more of the norm!

Girl Meets Change by Kristin Strong | I'm not sure where I first heard about this book, but the title's got my name written all over it. I used to think that I was flexible, but I'm learning more and more that change doesn't get any easier for me.

Open Your Bible by Rachael Myers and Amanda Bible Williams | As a lover of all things SheReadsTruth, it's crazy that I haven't read their devotional yet. Have you?

The Life-Changing Magic of Tidying Up by Marie Kondo | I'm a minimalist at heart and while I'm likely a year(ish) late to the game, I cannot wait to see what this book has to offer.

Present over Perfect by Shauna Niequist | Shauna's definitely my favorite author and with my goal to live in the present and be still, I KNOW this book is going to be a good one.

Looking for Lovely by Annie F. Downs | I've read some of Annie's work in SheReadsTruth posts and loved them all--I'm thinking this book will be a good one, too!

Wild and Free by Jess Connolly and Hayley Morgan | I don't consider myself either of those two words so I know this is a book that will help me find that in my life!

What do YOU want to read? What do YOU recommend to read? And what have YOU read recently?
