Sharing 5 books I “read” this year and why they’re my top recommendation. Plus I’m sharing an outfit!
Get the Look:
A lot of things that were supposed to happen in 2020 didn’t. No surprise there. This year I was supposed to complete my “Classic Novels” reading list and that certainly didn’t happen. And while that sucks I did read other, more diverse, books this past year. I’ve shared before how reading is a form of self-care for me. Thankfully, audiobooks are a thing nowadays (yay Audible!), so I’m able to find more time to “read.” Whether I’m out on a walk or cleaning the house, audiobooks are a great way to escape or learn a new craft.
In the past I’ve shared motivational books recommendations but today I’m excited to just share books I enjoyed in 2020. I read a lot this year and there are tons of books I suggest adding to your list but I’m keeping it to five. These recs range in topics and genres but I really enjoyed them and think you might too.
5 Audiobooks I Recommend “Reading”
Untamed by Glennon Doyle – This book shook me to my core, so many great nuggets?! From encouraging me to think for myself and ditch the status quo to helping me embrace my gifts and my story, Glennon sparked so much within me and I think she could do the same for you. I want to get a hardcover version for my nightstand and definitely think this would be a great gift for the holidays.
Clap When you Land by Elizabeth Acevedo – I related to this book soo much. I loved that the author spoke a lot about being raised by a Dominican family, heritage and culture. While this book was about loss it was also about discovery. Elizabeth was such a great storyteller and included some fantastic twists and turns to the story of the two girls.
An Absolutely Remarkable Thing by Hank Green – This was such a fun escape, I loved this book! Just so that you’re prepared, it’s a sci-fi thriller but a page-turner nonetheless. It was suspenseful and thrilling, and gives the reader insight into becoming an overnight sensation, literally overnight, and what that entails. Trust me when I say, you’ll get hooked even if you’re not a sci-fi lover.
Midnight Sun by Stephanie Meyer – If you read all the Twilight books then this is a no-brainer. I heard a lot of bad feedback on this and I don’t necessarily disagree, but it was nostalgic to get sucked into the Bella and Edward drama of my youth! If you’re not aware, this is basically the first Twilight book but from Edward’s perspective.
Born a Crime by Trevor Noah – This was such a great autobiography and such an interesting way to educate readers. Trevor is funny, witty, and does a great job at depicting his youth and the life instances that shaped who he became. I also loved the way he told the stories of those that had an impact on his life, especially his mom.
