January & February Reads

Monday, March 5, 2018

I'm a readaholic.  If you've perused my About Me section, you'd know that I majored in English in college simply because I love to read. Here is a list of the books I read in January and February!

Spark Joy: An Illustrated Master Class on the Art of Organizing and Tidying Up
by Marie Kondō 
This one is kind of rough to go through.  To start, I didn't read her first book so I think that if I had, maybe I would have been able to fully buy in.  Kondō also warns the reader that it might be a struggle to read this book if you haven't made your way through the first, so I was aware going in. Either way though, I did find a lot of insightful nuggets that I put to good use when sorting through sentimental items recently.

You Are a Badass: How to Stop Doubting Your Greatness and Start Living an Awesome Life 
By Jen Sincero
This is the type of life changing book I needed to start 2018.  It's a must read.  I thought about reading it for years and honestly, I wish I read it so much sooner.

By Krysten Ritter
Over the past few years, I really feel myself drawn to thrillers.  I'm a fan of Krysten Ritter - long live The B in Apartment 23!  I truly was not disappointed with her debut novel.  Admittedly, it did feel like a few loose strings within the plot (or maybe I missed things in my rapid reading) but that truly did not detract from the experience.

The Cuckoo's Calling
by Robert Galbraith
Again, another thriller! I've always been interested in reading J.K. Rowling's other work and I decided to give Cormoran Strike a shot.  It felt slow going, but I was intrigued.  It's completely opposite of any Harry Potter expectation you could have.  I would definitely check out other titles by J.K. Rowling--whether under her pen name or her own.

Follow me on Goodreads; I love to see what other people are reading and get suggestions!
