So two big things happened recently related to reading! First I was finally convinced to invest in a Kindle Paperwhite. I love paperback books and turning pages as I go but I am hoping to save money and have a more convenient travel experience with my new kindle! Second, I discovered Book of the Month and just love the idea! They pick books every month and you choose from their selection which books you want sent to you! So now I at least get 1 paperback a month! And my first book was free! I have the link below if you want to check it out! Just click on Book of the Month!
Here is what I’ve been reading the past two months. I haven’t had the best of luck not gunna lie….:
Reached by Ally Condie: I finally finished up this series. It’s a futuristic society that is similar to 1984 with a love triangle. The first two books were great but Reached was a little harder to follow. Still would recommend it! Matched is book one!
13 Reasons Why by Jay Asher: I read this book back in high school and loved the Netflix series. I think it is so important for younger generations specifically high school age to understand the effect of bullying and to have compassion on each other. (I understand the suicide issue is controversial but for those who can handle the topic it is a great lesson.) The book is solely from Clay’s perspective and takes place in one night. I would definitely recommend this book!
Left Behind by Tim Lahaye and Jerry Jenkins: Best book I read this month! I am waiting for my kindle to arrive to continue the rest of the series. Even if you aren’t religious it is still an interesting end of the word series. Totally recommend and can’t wait to keep reading!
The Husbands Secret by Laine Moriarty: This book had me hooked from the beginning, it slowed down a little 2/3 of the way through but the end is an emotional roller coaster. I would definitely recommend it but I did enjoy Big Little Lies a little more.
Fierce Kingdom by Gin Phillips: So I would not recommend this book. From the reviews I have read it seems like mothers are able to relate and enjoy this book in a way I couldn’t. The protagonist has sporadic thoughts the whole book unrelated to the situation and the antagonist is never explained enough to make any sense. I just didn’t feel like there was a point to the book, I kept reading for something and it never came.
The Worriers Guide to the End of the World by Torre Deroche: I recently joined a Facebook groups for girls around the world who love to travel titled, Girls Love Travel, if any females would like to join! I love getting new ideas and a chapter of the group is a book club. Next month this is the book nominated and the author is a part of the group! For anyone who has anxiety about travel this is a great book of how a worrier doesn’t necessarily conquer her fears but pushes through them as she follows a not so ordinary journey. It’s a true story and I loved it!
Behind Closed Doors by B.A. Paris: I love forgetful passengers! This book is an eye opener when it comes to domestic violence. It is a whole new level of abuse that will make you question relationships. I found it very interesting but very disturbing. I had trouble sleeping one night and was sick to my stomach every time I read. Definitely recommend. (Sorry for the picture it’s the only one I have.)
I’ve been reading some good ones this month so I’m excited for my next post! I am so blessed by my job! The ability to have downtime to read is amazing and I have been able to get back into the habit even if it’s guilty pleasure books! I’m hoping to get into more historical fiction! Always accepting recommendations!
