Best Book Read Last Year
Outlander by Diana Gabaldon was the best book I read last year.
This is my mom's all time favorite book and she has tried getting me to read it for years. She loves romancey, lovely dovey books and I don't. So hearing that this is a time travel, love story was enough to make my stomach turn. But, like the good daughter that I am I tried, multiple times, to read this book but couldn't get past the first 50 pages. Until last year, that is. I had absolutely nothing to read and I didn't feel like rereading anything so I thought WTH. Imagine my surprise when I finished this huge book in 2 days and LOVED it. It's not just a love story - it's everything all rolled into one.
