Here are my top 5 favorite books:

5.  Confessions of a Shopaholic by Sophie Kinsella – Chick lit at its best. Becky Bloomwood is so annoying, you have to love her.


4. Deception Point by Dan Brown – Highly underrated book. Yes, Dan Brown did write books before The DaVinci Codes.


3. The Great Gatsby by F. Scott Fitzgerald – It was the most amazingly descriptive book. I am sorry it took me so long to read it.


2. The Regulators and Desperation by Stephen King (tied) – If you’ve read these two books and loved them, you are a true Stephen King fan. The Regulators realism is disturbing even for King and Desperation’s religious undertones made me uncomfortable. I loved them both equally.


1. The Marriage of the Sun and the Moon by Andrew Weil – I read this book in college for my Drug, Alcohol and Crime class. It’s all about what people do in order to heighten their consciousness. Thank about how you feel, mentally, physically, and spiritual, after a good writing session. Hell, sometimes even a bad session gives me a high. Plus, this book inspired my first tattoo.
