In an attempt to read more, I’ve been using my Nook more regularly. (Anyone have any tips on how to sneak in more reading? What are your tips and tricks?) Here’s a list of what I’ve downloaded for the month on May/June.
Into the Water by Paula Hawkins
I’m almost done with Into the Water. I wouldn’t recommend it if you are looking to have the same sort of book as The Girl on the Train. This one definitely pales in comparison. The way the book flowed made it hard to follow. I consistently felt myself losing track of where the plot was at. I don’t mind when there are mulitple charater POV’s but the choppiness of this book didn’t add to it. It continually detracted from the main plot line.
The Handmaids Tale by Margaret Atwood
We are watching this on Hulu right now. It’s hard to watch but really fascinating. I’m hoping the book reads the same way the show feels. It always has me guessing and I feel on edge as I’m watching it. I’ll post an update once the series has finished and a review on the book. Really looking forward to this one.
Hidden Figures by Margot Lee Shetterly
The theme of May for me is appartently empowering women. I haven’t watched this movie yet but this has been recommended to me several times. Just the idea of women overcoming so many obstacles over the course of time makes this book worth buying to me. The women who push boundries are brave, and fierce women. We should always aspire to be like them and to push the boundaries.
#GIRLBOSS by Sophia Amoruso
This is a show I definitley just binged on Netflix. The book has been in my pile for awhile. I found the show relateable and hilarious. I’ve heard plenty of people talk about how annoying Sophia was but I found her to be real and honest. Another show I’ve enjoyed. I typically try to read the books before I watch the show so this is sort of a new experience for me.
What are you currently reading or looking forward to reading this year?
