Sneaking in a reading list for this month because it's almost up (how is that happening so fast? Welp!)
The Goldfinch by Donna Tartt - this book weighs 20lbs but that didn't stop me from carrying it around everywhere while I was in NYC this month. I got about halfway through (the period in Las Vegas) and couldn't put it down. I wasn't so keen on the last period but I thought it was a pretty great book.
The Knockoff by Lucy Sykes + Jo Plaza - this is about as far opposite of The Goldfinch as you can get. A very zeitgeist-y book about adapting to social media and technology. It's definitely a beach read that entertained me in parts and annoyed me in others.
The Life-Changing Magic of Tidying Up by Marie Kondo - it seems like this is the hot book right now and I've heard from so many that it really is life-changing! I only flipped through so far but am excited to purge and tidy my space, bring it on.
All the Light We Cannot See by Anthony Doerr - another one that I've heard rave reviews on and am saving this one for my long flight coming up this week. Can't wait.
Spinster: Making a Life of One's Own by Kate Bolick - this popped up in my recommendations (thanks, Amazon) and even though I don't read too much non-fiction, I wanted to give it a try. I like a lot of what the author has to say about happily unmarried women and living a fulfilling life without a husband yet... it's not really grabbing me.
Not another book but I have to add that I've been enjoying watching Parks and Rec non-stop this month. I never watched it when it was on tv but thanks to Netflix I've now been through the entire series lit-erally multiple times. It really is one of the best shows ever. I need to go back and read Amy Poehler's Yes Please again, and pick up a copy of Pawnee: The Greatest Town in America. I'm obsessed.
I'm in need of some more books to bring on my June Asia trip so share what are you reading this month! Past reading lists can be found here.
