After watching tv, movies, and YouTube nonstop for a month, I've turned off my screens and started reading regularly again. I made a little list of the books at the top of my mind lately. From read, currently reading, to next on my list!
I was lucky enough to receive an advanced copy of The Half Sister and I wanted to talk about it here and tell you to read it when it comes out on June 16! I've only just started reading it, but from what I can tell it's the kind of book you can't put down once you've started!
New Love: Find Me by Andre Aciman
Find Me is the sequel to Call Me By Your Name and it is amazing! You don't have to have read CMBYN at all, the book follows a separate storyline. It is enchantingly written and an contains 3 incredibly romantic modern love stories. One of the main themes in the book is time how some relationships come at the wrong time but we have the power to make it the right time.
Motivational: Crushing It! by Gary Vaynerchuk
I started it a couple weeks ago and it's been a great tool to self-motivate and be productive while I'm at home! If you want to be focused and motivated right now, read this! This is a very interesting time to read Crushing It! because it focuses a lot on how to turn your side-hustle into a career and how to make money from your unique interests and skills. What better time to do this than when you're stuck at home?
Memoir/Biography: Educated by Tara Westover
Educated has been on my to-read list for a long time. Tara grew up unconventionally and takes matters into her own hands to pave her way to higher education. In learning about the world and its history, she begins to question if she can ever go back to her old life, and if she even wants to. I've wanted to read this for so long because I recognize that I can take my education for granted sometimes because of the culture I come from and want to learn about someone without that background.
Oldie but a Goodie: Twilight by Stephenie Meyer
Everyone has a book that they can read anytime, from any point, and feel excited. I have a couple of these but my current favorite is Twilight. It has romance and action and for some reason, I feel so content and relaxed reading this series. The best part is that I can pick it up and put it down at any point, so there's no pressure to finish it or read at a certain pace. I want to read some of your cult-classics, so leave them in the comments!
