Here’s a few of my recent favorites and my soon to be read books! With all the craziness going on in the world right now a lot of you are stuck home, no better time to fit some reading in to help you relax and take your mind off everything
Turn of The Key: “The Turn of the Key is a story of a nanny currently jail awaiting trial for the murder of one of the children she nannied for. The whole book is told through letters from said nanny to a potential solicitor, recalling the events leading up to her incarceration, along with a few surprise twists!”
Such a Fun Age: “A striking and surprising debut novel, Such a Fun Age is a page-turning and big-hearted story about race and privilege, set around a young black babysitter, her well-intentioned employer, and a surprising connection that threatens to undo them both.”
Circe: “Despised by her divine family, Circe discovers her powers of sorcery when she turns a human fisherman into a god. When he spurns her for another nymph, Scylla, Circe transforms her rival into a horrific sea monster who becomes the sourge of all sailors – an act that will haunt Circe for the rest of her life.” This was one of my FAVORITES! I love Greek mythology stories!
Anna K: “Dazzlingly opulent and emotionally riveting, Anna K: A Love Story is a brilliant reimagining of Leo Tolstoy’s timeless love story, Anna Karenina―but above all, it is a novel about the dizzying, glorious, heart-stopping experience of first love and first heartbreak. A national indie bestseller!” This book reminded me so much of gossip girl, but even more scandal!
Tweet Cute: “A fresh, irresistible rom-com from debut author Emma Lord about the chances we take, the paths life can lead us on, and how love can be found in the opposite place you expected.”
Where the Crawdads Sings: “Where the Crawdads Sing is part bildungsroman and part crime drama, centered around Kya, a wild and unkempt girl. The book follows the ups and downs of her life. She lives a lonely life, but her story is a hopeful one as well. With a little help, she’s able to survive and even learn to read.”
The Dutch House: “Tells the story of a brother and sister over the course of five decades.” I heard this one is amazing, and if you’re into audio books Tom Hanks is the voice for it!
