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.
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.
I am embarrassed for how long it took me to read You Don’t Have to Say You Love me by Sherman Alexie. I think I renewed it from the library 5 or 6 times! In my defense, other books with longer waiting times, like Becoming, took over.
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…

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!
When I originally requested Becoming by Michelle Obama from the library I was something like 500 in the queue. So I figured it was going to be one I might not check off my 2019 books list. Then I got the notice that it was in while I was out of town. I immediately asked…
After zipping through The Woman in the Window audiobook, I started The Water Cure by Sophie Mackintosh. It got a place on my 2019 book list because it has 3.5 starts on Amazon, 3.52 on goodreads and is longlisted for the 2018 Man Booker Prize. So, once again I went in without reading the description…
I recently zipped through the audiobook The Woman in the Window by A. J. Finn. It’s a thrilling novel full of twists and turns! There was just enough intrigue to keep you guessing what was based on paranoia and what was real.
