15 Books for Millennials To Read in 2015

Happy Monday, Millennials!

Since I can remember, I’ve always loved reading books. Short stories, poetry non-fiction, inspirational, business and marketing — there’s just so much you can learn from picking up a book. So get your library cards, Barnes & Noble gift cards or iTunes cards read, because you’ll be wanting to get your hands on these ASAP!

As part of #Manifest365, I’ve challenged myself to read 15 books this year (with hopes of surpassing that mark, of course.) With a variety of book genres listed, I’m hoping to not only learn from the pages I flip (or swipe), but also get a few laughs and maybe shed a tear or two. Additionally, I thought that these books would be great of my fellow millennials to check out as well.

Take a look at the list below of the books I’ve picked, and send me a tweet to let me know know which books you have on your list for the new year. Happy reading!

    Awesome! A few if these are on my Good Reads list and I’m not a millennial. Lol. Some of these I’m adding to my list now. I used to be a fiction-only reader until about two years ago. Now, I only want to read nonfiction. I guess I’m saving my fiction indulgences for tv.
