Books

Books that I’m reading, have read or want to read.

One Day This Will Matter by Scaachi Koul – This is a nonfiction memoir full of short essays that are a quick and easy read.  The way that Scaachi writes really captures your attention and there are moments that are laugh out loud funny.  There are times where it pulls at your heart strings and provides an insight into another person’s life as a female.

Where’d You Go Bernadette by Maria Semple – This book was recommended to me years ago by a friend. I finally picked it up and it was wonderful.  As someone who spent a large portion of her life in Seattle and moved to LA, it was cool to be able to picture all the locations they bring up in the book.  It’s also very well written and captivating.  Just be prepared that once you start, you’ll want to stop everything to finish it.

Handmaid’s Tale by Margaret Atwood – I know that everyone is probably reading this book because it is now a Hulu show but it’s honestly worth the read.  I read it on my Kindle and thought that I still had more of the story left but when I reached the end, I looked up in shock because I needed the story to go on. It’s captivating and worth every minute.

Behind Her Eyes by Sarah Pinborough – This book is suspenseful and is unpredictable.  I got to the end and literally yelled “what?!”

The Nerdy Nummies Cookbook by Rosanna Pansino – I cannot wait until this is released.  If you’ve seen her videos you know that this will be good!

Modern Romance by Aziz Ansari – This is a good book into how dating has changed with the increase in dating apps

100 Places Every Woman Should Go by Stephanie Elizondo Griest – My friend recommended this to me because I’m obsessed with traveling.  It’s interesting to read the places that have been chosen because it focuses on places where women have made a different.  Highly recommend.

Boy, Snow, Bird by Helen Oyeyemi – Found on multiple lists for Best Books of 2014.  I’ll update when I start reading it.

The Cold Song by Linn Ullman – Found on the list of Best Books of 2014.  I’ll update when I get started.

The Circle by Dave Eggers – Found on the list of Best Books of 2014. I love Dave Eggers so I’m excited to start reading this.

Fresh Off The Boat by Eddie Huang – Written by a foodie. My kind of person.

The Other Language by Francesca Marciano – This was intriguing, I’ll update when I start reading it.

Where’d You Go Bernadette by Maria Semple – Set in Seattle, Bernadette disappears and so begins the journey of finding her.

My Mother She Killed Me, My Father He Ate Me by Kate Bernheimer – a compilation of fairy tales rewritten by contemporary authors

A Hitchhikers Guide to the Galaxy by Douglas Adams – There’s a movie. I haven’t seen it.  The book is amazing, and if you read it in public; be prepared to be given strange looks as you giggle to yourself. It’s a natural reaction.

Yes Please by Amy Poehler – This book was a quick read that was a wonderfully written memoir by Amy Poehler.  She’s definitely one of my favorite comedians.

Gone Girl by Gillian Flynn- recommended by my friends (or rather everyone was talking about it and I wanted to join in on the fun).  Started the book and proceeded to sacrifice sleep so I could finish it.  Amazing, captivating.

Not That Kind of Girl by Lena Dunham – saw Lena Dunham speak in Seattle and read a few of her stories from the book.  Hilarious, and wonderfully written.
