Ahhh, #tbt to a simpler time… early 2020. When hope was abundant and I could go to Target without wearing a face mask! The first quarter of the new decade was a good one for me, reading-wise. I got into a great groove with audio books and branched out a bit, genre-wise. Take a peek for all the deets on what I read in January, February, and March of 2020!
Emily St. John Mandel’s The Glass Hotel tells the non-linear stories of a long con gone wrong, a beautiful young woman’s disappearance, and these stories’ ground zero – the hotel on an isolated island in British Columbia.
Megan Giddings’ Lakewoodis the fascinating, unsettling story of a young woman who – in desperate need of money to support her family after her grandmother dies – opts into a mysterious medical experimentation program.
Rebecca Serle’s In Five Yearsis the wonderfully surprising and heartbreaking story of a very Type A corporate lawyer in New York City who has stringently planned her future, but who may have to learn that life doesn’t always go exactly as planned.
Stuck at home virtually all of April? While I’m sure these aren’t the plans (or lack thereof) you had in mind, the silver lining is that so. many. books are being published this month. You surely won’t have a lack of new books to choose from, and that’s where I come in! Check out all of the books on my radar that are being published this month, and – if I may make a suggestion – put in a pre-order of your favorites at your most beloved independent bookstore!
Christina Lauren’s Twice in a Blue Moonis the absorbing, lovely story about two young people who fall in and out of love in London on a vacation and find themselves working together years later, with a second chance at love.
