Charlotte Walsh Likes to Win by Jo Piazza is the latest book I’ve read from my 2019 book list. I read several chapters on our 12+ drive back to Minnesota a few weeks ago.
As I’ve mentioned, my new job requires me to be on the road a few times a month. Rather than listen to hours of music or talk radio I’ve been listening to a lot of audiobooks! I listen to them much faster than I read books, so, once again, I grouped four together.
This One is Mine is the third book that I’ve read by Maria Semple. I first listened to the audiobook of Where’d You Go Bernadette and then Today Will Be Different. I loved both of these, so when I found this book it was a no brainer to put it on my 2019 book list.
Here We are Now by Jasmine Warga is a cute young adult book! I’d say it’s on par with One of Us is Lying. It’s about a young girl who was being raised by her mom. Then, she discovers her dad is a rock star, literally.
Little Fires Everywhere by Celeste Ng is a novel full of plot lines including motherhood, teen relationships, and suburbia. It has 4.3 stars out of 5 on Amazon and 4.1 stars on everythingemelia.com.

The Hate U Give by Angie Thomas is a powerful and moving novel about police brutality and systematic racism. It was on my 2019 book list and I had requested the hardcover and audiobook knowing that it would be a long waitlist. I started listening to the audiobook and I got through about 75% of…
When I One of Us is Lying to my 2019 book list, I didn’t know it was a teen mystery. It only took me a few pages into the first chapter to realize it, but that didn’t stop me from reading and throughly enjoying it.
I finally finished My Family and Other Animals! Nothing like a dysfunctional family story to entertain and amuse you. The majority of it was read on the patio, with glass of wine via a Queen Bee glass. So happy summer is finally here!
I just finished Behind Closed Doors by B. A. Paris and couldn’t wait to share! It was so good! I first heard about it on the Young House Love podcast last year, but it didn’t quite make the 2019 book list cut.
