    Books I Read in September

    Happy October! September was quite the month, and it was definitely an eventful month when it came to reading. I read nine books ranging from a non-fiction memoir, an educational marketing book, two books that were the last in their series, an antiracist read, and more. Let’s get started on the books I read in September! one | Maybe You Should Talk to Someone by Lori Gottlieb — E-Book Therapists are people too. They have opinions, they struggle with normal problems like breakups and feeling the impending doom of their own death, they curse — basically, they are just like us. This is Lori Gottlieb’s main message in her book Maybe You…

    Books I Read in August

    Back to my normal reading numbers! I’d be lying if I said I wasn’t disappointed by the low number of books I read this month, but five books is such a realistic number to read (for me). I also almost finished one book (which will be in my September wrap up) and got half-way through a 900-page book, so I’m trying not to get too down on myself. Real talk — It can be hard being a blogger/bookstagramer who sees people reading 30 books a month when I can, usually, barely get through five. When I’m feeling down about my numbers, I try to remind myself that five is better…

    Books I Read in July

    Another month full of lots of reading! I don’t know if it’s my competitive nature (with myself) or the increased downtime due to COVID-19, but I am still so excited about all the books I am getting through. I’ve read some that have been on my list for ages, some recommended by friends, and some brand new finds. Let’s get into what I read during the month of July. 1// Lincoln in the Bardo by George Saunders — Audiobook I’m upset that I didn’t like this book as much as I wanted to. I listened to the audiobook since the full cast was raved about, but I never really connected with…

    Books I Read in June

    I read a wide range of books in June. From some antiracist education to some light, teen romance, I kind of read it all. They weren’t all five star reads this month, but it was still a good selection of books. Let’s get started! 1// Isla and the Happily Ever After by Stephanie Perkins In Perkins’s final installment of her young adult series, she follows Isla (Eye-la) Martin and Josh Wasserstein as they fall madly in love in a short amount of time. Isla’s had her eye on Josh since their freshman year, so when she runs into him at a cafe in New York, it’s Kismet – literally, that’s…

    Books I Read in May 2020

    Back at it with a total of NINE books read this month. Who even am I? I have never read this much in my entire life. I truly chalk it up to adding audiobooks into my routine. I got through three audiobooks in May, four e-books, and two physical books. I read a range of YA books, fiction, and non-fiction over the last 31 days. Let’s get started! 1// Anna and the French Kiss by Stephanie Perkins (E-Book) Anna and the French Kiss is problematic to say the least. But, it’s a fun read when you’re stuck inside on a rainy day. Anna is shipped off to school in Paris (the reason is…

    Books I Read in April

    Well, well, well, look who’s back in action. It’s been a while my friends, but I’m happy to be here. Hopefully, I won’t ever again take a break as big as this last one. 2020 has been a smack in the face to a lot of people, and I am no different. But on the bright side, I’ve been reading a lot these last few months, and I can’t wait to share some of my top recommendations. Before I jump into things, I wanted to let you know about this app I discovered that’s been helping me read so much more. Since we’ve been under a Stay-At-Home order in Nashville, I discovered Libby. It lets…

    September Reading Wrap Up 2019

    Happy October! It’s finally starting to feel a little bit like fall here in Nashville, and I am SO ready for sweaters season. I bought a few new pieces from Target over the weekend, and I can’t wait to wear them this season. September was a pretty good month of reading with four books under my belt. I absolutely loved one book and really didn’t enjoy another, so it was a pretty balanced month of reading. Let’s get into my September reading wrap up!

    August Reading Wrap Up

    You may have noticed, but I skipped out on doing a July reading wrap up since I read so little that month. Between moving and being out of town, I really hit a reading slump last month and only read two books. And even though I only read three books this month, I got half-way through two others, and I feel like I’m back in the reading game. Let’s get started! Image from Amazon 1. Small Fry by Lisa Brennan-Jobs A well-written auto-biography from Steve Jobs’ “forgotten” daughter, Small Fry is an eye-opening read. Brennan-Jobs shares stories of her childhood and the strange way she and her estranged father used to interact. I’ve never been…

    June Reading Wrap Up

    Happy July! June was a crazy busy month for me with social engagements, and July is looking to be a crazy month with moving, but somehow I always make time for reading. I find it helps to commit to reading at least one chapter before I go to bed, and it also helps me sleep better since I’m taking myself away from the computer screen before getting some shut-eye. Let’s get started with my June reading wrap up! Image from Amazon 1. Daisy Jones & The Six by Taylor Jenkins Reid Taylor Jenkins Reid is back again after The Seven Husbands of Evelyn Hugo, and Daisy Jones & The Six is just as good…

    May 2019 Reading Wrap Up

    Am I the only one that felt like May dragged on for forever? Yeah? Well, okay. May felt like a double month to me, and in some ways, I guess that’s a good thing because I read six books in the last 30 days. That’s a record for me I think — typically I only make it through about five. I feel like it warrants saying that I only read physical books. I don’t listen to audiobooks, and while I don’t shame people that do — it still counts as reading — people that do listen to audiobooks have very much higher book counts than I do at this time of…
