Hey friends! Long time no talk!
Sorry that I dropped off the planet, 2018 got to me! It’s been one heck of a year already and I can’t wait to update you all on all my new adulting hacks and the crazy things I’ve been up to (inviting strangers over?…Stay tuned!)
In the meantime, though, it’s officially March which means it’s time for a new reading list! Yes, it’s springtime already if you couldn’t tell by the rain and gloom that’s been hanging over Austin for the last month. Perfect weather for snuggling up with a great book and furry friend! So, without further ado, here’s what I’ll be reading this Spring…
Jackie’s Spring 2018 Reading List
–Liar (K.L. Slater)
Liar is a psychological thriller that follows Judi, a devoted mother and grandmother helping her widowed son Ben raise his kiddos. When Amber comes into Ben’s life unexpectedly, everyone is overjoyed but Judi isn’t so sure…
–Before We Were Yours (Lisa Wingate)
This book, based on the real-life events of the Tennessee Children’s Home Society, follows two families generations apart as they discover the truth of what it means to be family.
–Wonder (R.J. Palacio)
Wonder is actually a children’s fiction book that was recently made into a movie. The book follows Auggie Pullman and his friends and family throughout the journey of his 5th grade year. 5th grade is a tough year for anybody but Auggie is special because of his extraordinary face. This book has been known to tug the heartstrings of adults and kids alike and I can’t wait to get started.
–The Power of Habit (Charles Duhigg)
I’ve heard nothing but good things about this book that delves into why humans have habits and how we can change them to be more productive and successful. Human nature can be a tricky thing to tackle but I’ve heard Charles Duhigg is spot on in this New York Times Bestseller.
–The Wedding Date (Jasmine Guillory)
Alexa and Drew are strangers stuck in an elevator who end up going to a wedding together. That’s as much as I want to say about this fun debut novel by Jasmine Guillory.
–Eleanor Oliphant Is Completely Fine (Gail Honeyman)
Eleanor has absolutely no social filter. Her isolation and loneliness have developed her own sense of propriety and decorum that sets her apart from her peers in ways she can’t understand. It’s only through accidentally becoming friends with Raymond and Sammy that Eleanor realizes how much she needs people to survive.
