I’ve been reading like a maniac lately!  Which let’s be honest, for someone my age, that means I’m reading before bed.  Ha!

I considered sharing a post like this in December but was consumed with lots of other “life” things.  So instead, I’m sharing seven of my most recent reads and a [very] short reason why they need to be on your list as well.

Let’s get started (in no real order)!

#1 The Book Thief by Markus Zusak

Why you need to read this book – heart-wrenchingly powerful/beautiful

#2 It Was Me All Along by Andie Mitchell

Why you need to read this book – relatable (in so many ways), real, raw

#3 Crazy Rich Asians by Kevin Kwan

Why you need to read this book – hilarious, fun, entertaining

#4 China Rich Girlfriend by Kevin Kwan (a sequel to Crazy Rich Asians)

Why you need to read this book – it’s just as fun as the first book if not even more so!

#5 Why Not Me? by Mindy Kaling

Why you need to read this book – simple, smart, super funny (I literally LOLed a few times!)

#6 Rising Strong by Brene Brown

Why you need to read this book – it’s a catalyst for personal growth and more importantly…REAL CHANGE

#7 The Gifts of Imperfection by Brene Brown

Why you need to read this book – the book may possibly change your life!  A MUST READ!

So there you go, my seven most recent reads!  And guys, if you own a Kindle but have yet to check out Overdrive, GET ON IT!  It’s a game changer for people who want to READ ALL THE BOOKS!

Happy Friday, my friends!

  1. Many of these are on my list and many will be added, thanks! I’m reading Carrie Brownstein’s memoir, which is so eloquent and interesting even though I haven’t followed her career that closely, and just started the Bone Clocks which is sucking me in quickly, I think I’m going to love it.

  2. Loved #1,3,4, and 5! I recently finished Spontaneous Happiness by Andrew Weil,
    The Hypnotist’s Love Story by Liane Moriarty, Amy Poehler’s Yes Please, and the Nightingale by Kristin Hannah (LOVED). Reading is just wonderful 🙂

    1. Agreed – there’s nothing like getting lost in a good book!

      And putting all of those titles on my list. Thanks for the recs!

  3. Upon your recommendation, I read Crazy Rich Asians and loved it! Call me lazy but I downloaded the Mindy Kaling audiobook instead of reading it haha- I tend to listen to it when I go for my walks sometimes. It’s definitely a humorous alternative to music :)!
