Books I’m Reading in 2015
- My Bulletproof Diet Recipes: 47+ Delicious and Healthy Recipes To help you stick to the bulletproof diet by Jessy Smith – I did not write a review of this book, but I did rate it on Goodreads and it was not the best rating. I was looking for a cookbook to help me eat better and this provided incomplete recipes and the ones we did make did not taste very good (caution: lots of onion was called for in the recipes).
- The Testament: A novel by Elie Wiesel – Wiesel is one of my favorite authors and I love everything that I’ve read of his.
- American Sniper by Chris Kyle – I wanted to read this book before I saw the movie and I must say it is a must read whether you see the movie or not!

- In the Garden of Beasts: Love, Terror, and an American Family in Hitler’s Berlin by Erik Larson – I enjoyed this book much more than The Devil in the White City and found it much easier to read and follow the story. This one definitely fed into my love of history.
