BOOKS ON MY NIGHTSTANDS RIGHT NOW
I like to read multiple books concurrently, which means the area around my bed ends up looking like this 📚📚📚📚📚📚📚📚
- •Mary, Queen of Scots and the Murder of Lord Darnley by Alison WeirNot my fave Alison Weir book, but I like it enough to keep reading. So much drama AND IT WAS REAL!! If history and The Real Housewives came together, it would be this.
- •How to Be Parisian Wherever You Are by Anne Berest, Audrey Diwan, Caroline de Maigret, and Sophie MasI've read a lot of scathing reviews about this book, but I've enjoyed it. It's a light read that shouldn't be taken too seriously. Kind of all over the place, but it's been a breath of fresh air while reading heavier, dense stuff.
- •The Opposite of Loneliness by Marina KeeganThe story behind this book is heartbreaking. These essays and stories are filled with hope, brilliance and honesty. Definitely recommend.
- •The English: A Social History 1066-1945 by Christopher HibbertI'm a sucker for anything related to the history of English society. This book is comprehensive and covers a wide range of stuff over almost 1,000 years: castles, rich people, peasant life, brothels, schools, taverns, farms and basically every aspect of life from medieval to modern times.
- •The Myths of Happiness by Sonja LyubomirskyThe cover of this book describes it perfectly. Everything from love, work, relationships, illness, getting older and more. Especially helpful if you're experiencing a life crisis or a transitional phase. Very insightful and just gets you thinking differently.
- •Brain on Fire: My Month of Madness by Susannah CahalanJust got this and very excited to start reading! Heard it gets cray cray
- •Can't We Talk about Something More Pleasant? by Roz ChastHonestly one of my favorite books I've read recently. Love the graphic memoir format. A quick read that focuses on Chast's relationship with her parents as they got older. This was difficult for me to read because it resonates deeply, but also something I couldn't put down for that same reason. Humor and a lighthearted spirit are brilliantly woven into this story of guilt, sadness, resentment and regret. Get it and read it!!!
