Book Round Up September through November

I cannot believe it is already December AND that 2020 is right around the corner. When I was reflecting on this, I realized I was long overdue for a book roundup! I have to admit, I was in a little bit of a reading rut for a while, but I am back and reading more […]

I cannot believe it is already December AND that 2020 is right around the corner. When I was reflecting on this, I realized I was long overdue for a book roundup!

Book Stack

I have to admit, I was in a little bit of a reading rut for a while, but I am back and reading more and more every week.

Here is a list of the books I read over the past few months. 

ONE// The Turn of the Key: Who else loves a good thriller? This book did not disappoint. It constantly kept me on my toes AND more importantly I did not see the ending coming. It took me less than two days to read this book because I just didn’t want to go to bed without finishing the next chapter. 

TWO// How Could She: A truly amazing book about women’s relationships with each other. This book took me a little while to get through because honestly, the plot isn’t that interesting. BUT the dynamics in the three women’s relationships with each other were so spot on and insightful. I cannot recommend this book enough and after you finish, check out Bad on Paper’s book club episode about it. 

THREE// Get A Life Chloe Brown: If you are like me and in a reading rut then add this to your cart. This love story is fun and cute and a little steamy too. It only took me a day to finish this amazing romance. 

FOUR// The Ninth House: Whoa! I picked this book for my Book of the Month Box and am so glad I did. Magic isn’t usually a genre I enjoy, but The Ninth House was a great read. This book is about the magical side of the Yale secret societies. After I finished this book, it took me a few hours to recover. 

FIVE// Three Women: This book was widely talked about and praised, which is why I decided to read it. It took the author ten years to research and write this book and it really shows through the details of these women sharing their stories. Although this book was detailed and a beautiful retelling of these three women’s stories, I just didn’t love it. I didn’t find the book relatable in a lot of ways. I still recommend reading this, it just wasn’t for me. 

AUDIOBOOK// Beartown: This was the first audiobook I have listened to in a long long time. I took a 20 plus hour road trip and passed the time with this book. Beartown is about a small hockey town and the secrets that tear this small community apart. I find it hard to listen to audiobooks, so if you are like me, maybe try reading this one. 

Below are some of the books I am in the middle of and some that are on my list to finish before the end of the year.

It’s a little ambitious, but with it getting dark so early, I am much more excited to stay in and read.

I'm Bailey, your new social media bestie.

Instead of doing what I thought I was supposed to be doing, I got intentional. I started asking “what if” all the time and I stopped putting so much pressure on myself to do things at the perfect time or the right way. Instead I took a little leap here and another there to create a life I love.
