With summer over and fall just around the corner, what better time to suggest a pool/beach read? Ha! But seriously, it took me that long to finish this book. Not because it wasn’t good and not because it was difficult, it’s because I’ve been so darn busy!
American War by Omar El Akkad was another one of my favorite book from my 2018 book list. (Uncommon Type is still my favorite.) Although it’s thick and heavy, it makes for a great airplane read.
I recently finished Better: A Surgeon’s Notes on Performance by Atul Gawande, a book about medical failures and successes. Spoiler: You’d don’t have to be a surgeon or even in the healthcare industry to enjoy this well-written book.
Rebecca by Daphne Du Maurier is a wonderful suspense book with just enough splash of romance to make things interesting. (No, Sophie did not try to eat the cover.)
I recently listened to the audio book of The Bright Hour: A Memoir of Living and Dying. What’s with me and all these dark books and tv shows?
Are you watching The Handmaid’s Tale on Hulu?
Another book from my 2018 book list, I Can’t Make This Up by Kevin Hart, was a hilarious book full of Kevin’s life lessons.
Sisters First by Jenna Bush Hager and Barbara Pierce Bush, from my 2018 book list, is a super cute (and short) book that reminded me of how lucky I am to have an awesome sister. 🙂
Don’t judge a book by it’s cover, or in this case, the title; The Subtle Art of Not Giving a F—. Because if you can get past the title (and the occasional foul language throughout the book) I bet you’ll learn a thing or two.
THE POWER by Naomi Alderman was the winner of the 2017 Baileys Women’s Prize for Fiction. It’s a thrilling story in an alternate reality where Beyonce’s famous “Run the World (Girls)” song is true.
