Girl, Interrupted by Susanna Kaysen

My goal for this year was to read 12 books - 1 book for each month, and today I met that goal so I have upped my goal to 16 books in the year. I am so proud of myself that I have achived this personal goal for myself. I have always loved reading, since I was a child, but in the last few years I have been lacking, and the last couple of years have been difficult so reading was pushed to the side. Let's see how many more I can read by Dec!

Thanks @Clwojick for the tag!

1. My goal was 12 books in a year but I have already finished it so now its 16 books.
2. Girl, Interrupted
3. I usually don't snack while reading but I do like to drink either coffee or tea.
4. Something comfy to sit on.
5. I definitely mix up the genres. I prefer to hold a book in my hands.
6. @InezRay

I really enjoyed this book. It was a quick read. An interesting story line that got me hooked. Talks about struggles that everyone deals with especially under difficult circumstances. It really showed the Dark Side of people and how they deal with tragedy.

I fell in love with the Fab 5 from the moment I watched their first epsiode, and my love for them has increased with every season. I absoultly loved this book that Tan wrote. I think he is my spirt animal. This book is a great read and I love all the advice and heart warming stories he shares. Plus his love story with his husband is so sweet.

When the Cypress Whispers | Yvette Manessis Corporon

Even though this was a slow read, this book was amazing. The author took her own families history and turned it into a work of fiction. As a granddaughter of holocaust survivors reading that this authors grandmother hid jews in Greece made me love this book even more. There are so many layers to this book, it is so deep. What a beautiful story.

I absolutely love Molly Ringwald, ever since I was 14 years old. It was such a pleasure to read this book. As I was reading I could picture her saying these words just like if she were reading them too me. LOVE!!!!

This book is a treasure, I wanted to savor it. It painted a perfect picture in my mind, like all of Taylor Jenkins Reid's books do. It's like a movie playing in my mind.

Where you find the character Mick Riva in two universes of Taylor Jenkins Reid. I wonder if they are the same people and she made a little bit of a crossover. #thesevenhusbandsofevelynhugo

Like all of her books before, Seven Husbands moved me like nothing before. It put me in a trance where I couldn't put it down, where there were moments when my heart sped up and tears welled in my eyes. I truly felt I was transported back to old Hollywood and the Glamour that came with it. This book touches on so many important topics that it's a must read, you will finish it completely inspired and in awe.

The End of Men: A Novel | Karen Rinaldi

Pickpick

I pick this book because it has amazingly strong & diverse women. They are all women who are in different stages of their life, and even though some of the women were married it had strong themes about working women in power and specifically working women who are also moms and the bond women share and how women support each other.

I am enjoying this book but there have been a couple of parts that really rubbed me the wrong way. When you marry someone you vow to be exclusive (unless you decied on an open marriage) I feel this is just an excuse she is telling herself to make herself feel better about cheating. This is also a character who is pregnant and ordering wine.

I really enjoyed this book. It was my first Agatha Christie book. Even though at times it was hard to understand because of writing of the different acents, but it deffinitly makes it unique. I love a good mystery. I also loved the ending.

Even though this book has amazing quotes and a great story I couldn't finish reading it. I wasn't excited to pick it up and read it. I also found the transtions very scattered and not very smooth. I loved the movie, which is why I wanted to read this book. Maybe at another time I will be able to get through it.

Wow, I read this book up. I absolutely loved it. As I was reading I had a feeling it was going to end the way it did so it didn't shock me. But I felt a strong connection to this book. Not only because the protagonist's birthday is my own birthday but because the last part of the book takes places in Jerusalem, the city I was born in, in the country I hold near and dear to my heart.

Years after graduating from college the message and advice that Lauren writes about is transcendent, whether you are graduating college, lost a job, or going through a break up this book really lifts your spirits. It's eye opening and gives you confidence in anything life may throw your way, in any area of your life or what chapter of your life you may be in.

This book had me laughing right from the start. As a big fan of Anna Kendrick's reading this book was a must. After reading her book it made me love her even more. She makes herself so relatable. It shows you how down to earth and humble she really is and how she doesn't take herself too seriously.

Maybe in Another Life: A Novel | Taylor Jenkins Reid

Pickpick

One of my all time favorite books. Maybe in Another Life shows you how one small decision can change the course of your life. So should you say No or Yes because these small words can change everything. There hasn't been a book that I haven't adored from Taylor Jenkins Reid. This was the first book of hers that I read, I couldn't put it down, I read it in less than a day.

PerksOfBeingABookworm I just finished listening to this book! It was my second book by Reid. The Seven Husbands of Evelyn Hugo was my favorite book of 2017. I will be a fan of TJR for that book alone! 7mo
NaomiO @PerksOfBeingABookworm I have loved everyone of her books. Still need to read Seven Husbands. Its at the top of my list. 7mo
PerksOfBeingABookworm She has a new one coming out in March. 7mo

I love this book, Keltie is so honest and open about her struggles and how she fought to make it where she is. She is so inspiring and her message is so heartfelt.
