What are you reading now?

This is definitely my favorite question to ask or to be asked!

These are a few of the books I read in January. The picture only shows the physical books but since I got an iPad for Christmas (thanks honey!) I put quite a dent in my iBooks (even though I bought more as quickly as I read them!)

The Hate U Give by Angie Thomas – I can’t even say enough about this book! Everyone should read it and then they should make everyone the know read it again. And now they are making a movie! The tears started in the first chapter and continued throughout the book.

History is All You Left Me by Adam Silvera – Another book that brought the tears in the first chapter and kept them coming until the last page. The story fluctuates between the present and the past to unravel an extremely messy and complicated love story. It is achingly beautiful story and I recommend it to anyone, but don’t go into it without the extra large box of tissues.

Simon vs. the Homo Sapiens Agenda by Becky Albertalli – I’m not sure I should mention this one because it’s my third time reading it. Okay 3.5 times (I went back and reread all the letters dispersed throughout the text). This book is so cute and adorable I just want to curl up and be its BFF. There’s also a movie coming out of it! Do I need to mention how excited I am about this! I might have to read it a 4.5 time before this comes out!

And for a random bit of trivia all three of these authors are represented by the same agent, Brooks Sherman. Talk about a rockstar of a client list.

So what are you reading now?

My Favorite Books of April

These are a few of the books I read in April.

Radio Iris by Ann-Marie Kinney was by far my favorite read of April. Published by Two Dollar Radio, there isn’t anything they publish that I haven’t loved. Iris, a socially awkward woman who knows nothing about her boss or the business she works for, discovers a man living in the office next to her. Are you intrigued yet? I couldn’t put it down and was left wanting to reread it immediately after.

milk and honey by rupi kaur was a reread for me in honor of National Poetry Month. I devoured it the first time I read it and tried to take it a little slower this time. I wasn’t successful.

it must hurt to know

i am your most



Seriously, how can you put the book down after that?

Voracious: A Hungry Reader Cooks Her Way Through Great Books by Cara Nicoletti. Don’t read this book if you already have too many books waiting to be read. There are close to 40 short stories about her life related to books and each book has a recipe associated with it. Books and food! What else could you want? The only problem is it made me want to read, or reread, all of the books in it. But is that really a problem?
