One of my goals for 2019 is to read more. More specifically, to read at least 14 books in the next eleven months. To achieve that, I decide to set a goal of reading at least 2 books a month.
On January I read a total of 3 books. More than I expected, less than I wanted. But I don’t mind it, because I loved every single one of them.
- What Alice Forgot by Liane Moriarty
Liane Moriarty is one of my favorite authors, so it wasn’t a surprise when I felt the need to read What Alice Forgot. The book tells the story of Alice and her adventure on searching for her memories. Because of a gym accident, the forty-year-old and mother of three forgets everything that happened after 1998, when she was still 29 and pregnant with her first child.
This is the lightest book that I read from Liane so far, and it was refreshing to read something that didn’t involve dystopian realities, crazy rich and controlling families or growing up in the periphery of Naples.
2. The Subtle Art of Not Giving a F*ck by Mark Manson
I bought this book approximately ten months ago, but I only opened it in January. I wanted to read it because everybody kept talking about it, and it was everywhere, and it seemed different from any other self-help book in the market. I’m not sure if I regret reading it just now, or if I’m happy that I read it in 2019.
The thing about this book is that it really is different from anything else I ever read. And it really changes your mind.
3. The Hating Game by Sally Thorne
This is already one of my favorite books from 2019. I didn’t read it, I devoured it.
The Hating Game is a rom-com that tells the story of Lucy and Joshua, two colleagues that confounded love with hate. I don’t want to say much more to not give any spoilers, but, if you like any rom-com movie, I suggest you read this book.
Also, Netflix can you please turn it in a movie?
