January Reading: Books I’ve Read This Month
Let’s start with today!
Over the holiday break I got a little obsessed with reading. I found myself squeezing it in every chance I got, mostly because now that I started my first class (Anatomy & Physiology – insert red-faced, circle-eyed emoticon here), I’ve been experiencing a bit of panic thinking that I may never have time to read for fun ever again. Obviously, that’s not true. I pretty much can’t fall asleep at night unless I at least attempt to read a couple of pages before I close my eyes.
I’ve really enjoyed everything I’ve read so far this month:
The Storied Life of A.J. Fickery by Gabrielle Zevin
I listened to this on Audible and really enjoyed it. The story was set around an ornery bookstore owner who received a mysterious package in his store one day that literally changed the rest of the life. A lot of character growth in this story, I got attached and it felt a little bittersweet when it ended.
The Husband’s Secret by Liane Moriarty
I have been on a huge Liane Moriarty kick! I’m just plugging along through her section of the library and I was happy to finally grab a copy of The Husband’s Secret this month. Like the other stories I’ve read from her, this one intertwined between several different but related character situations. It felt a little slow at first to me, but once I got into it it became an effortless, quick read. If you are a fan, what’s your favorite Liane Moriarty book?
The Silver Linings Playbook by Matthew Quick
I grabbed this one on Audible during one of their 2 for 1 sales and glad I did. It’s an easy listen so far, a funny and quirky story and I can’t wait to see the movie!
The Story Hour by Thrity Umrigar
I’m about halfway through this and am really enjoying it so far. It’s about 2 women – a psychologist and one of her patients, a lonely & desperate Indian woman living far away from her family and in a not so great marriage – and the development of their somewhat complicated relationship turned friendship.
