Where did the year go? I cannot believe Thanksgiving is around the corner!
The bad news: Time is flying by way too quickly these days…
The good news: Loads of time off to do all the reading I want!
I’m still 3 books behind schedule to finish 50 books in 2017 so I have a serious task ahead of me. I’m fairly competitive so I’m going to meet this goal one way or another.
Here are books I have lined up and ready to be devoured over the holidays (along with a lot of sweet potato casserole and pie):
1. Little Fires Everywhere by Celeste Ng
I will admit, the cover pulled me in but the summary just doesn’t really do it for me. Although based on the number of people who have raved about it, and specifically recommended it to me, means I’m going to have to give it a read.
2. One True Loves by Taylor Jenkins Reid
I don’t know how I overlooked TJR before! I’ve read multiple books by her, most recently The Seven Husbands of Evelyn Hugo, and have loved them. Nothing too heavy, just light, enjoyable and relatable reads. Thanks to a kind reader who pointed this fact out, I started to research more of her writing and she is officially on my radar now!
3. The Lost Art of Mixing by Erica Bauermeister
I recently praised the first book in this series and I cannot wait to pick up the next. For all my holiday cookers out there, her books will transport you to every taste and smell you’ve ever experienced. This should be read right before your Thanksgiving meal so you remember to take the time to stop and truly enjoy the moment.
4. Artemis by Andy Weir
This isn’t my usual read, but sometimes I’m really into sci-fi. Especially when they are written by Andy Weir (anyone else read The Martian??)! I’m patiently awaiting it’s release date on the 14th.
5. Unraveling Oliver by Liz Nugent
Talk about an enticing cover, title, and summary! I have high hopes, but I will say I’ve heard very mixed reviews. No other way to see if I like it but by diving right in.
Have you read any of these before? Which one should I start with?
