A massive part of my New Year resolutions list was to read more. I love reading and getting lost in the stories unfolding on the page that I decided to devot more time to it. That’s why I’ve been carrying my Kindle around with me everywhere! Honestly, I can almost guarantee if you found me somewhere I’d probably be sitting and reading. Plus, it pretty much fits in most of my bags (which is why I added it in this post along with some other goodies)!With that being said, I also realize I’ve read some amazing books already this year that I want to share them so others can enjoy them as much as I have.
The Seven Husbands of Evelyn Hugo by Taylor Jenkins Reid
I bought this book on a Monday and finished it on Saturday. It’s safe to say this book is now one two of my lists: books I will gladly read again and one of my favorite novels of all time. The story of the main character, Evelyn, was shocking, raw and eye-opening, with so many twists and turns that I ended up feeling so many different emotions. I can safely say I cried many times and couldn’t believe the courage and drive this character brought to the table. Once you find out what the real story is, all of the secrets start to unfold, bringing it hard to put the book down.
The Miniaturist by Jessie Burton
Follow Nella’s journey as she discovers all of the secrets that lie within her new husband’s home in Amsterdam in the 1600s. Trust me, you won’t be able to guess what happens next in this novel, which will keep you hooked. Each page unfolds a new and deep secret that’s been unspoken about in the family for years. This is why this novel ends up on my list for the month as I almost missed my stop multiple times on my way to and from work.
The Nest by Cynthia D’Aprix Sweeney
What happens when four siblings have to come together what’s about to happen between them and their trust fund? Well, you’ll have to read this novel to find out! Melody, Jack, Bea and Leo are navigating through their lives while dealing with their own personal dramas. However, since one of them has an accident, the four must come together to decide what happens to “the nest”, as they all want the money to help themselves out. Sweeney’s writing is captivating and intriguing, making it very difficult for me to put it down. It’s honestly one of those books that I want to keep reading, but I don’t want to finish because I love the story.
So what do you guys think? Are you planning on reading anything this month or have any recommendations? Let me know! I love knowing what others are reading and really passionate about sharing.
