  1. Nice is Just a Place in France - The Betches
    This book was a much needed break after my serious April read. It was a "self-help" sassy humor book that didn't make me think too much. It's broken into sections (e.g., college and dating) and offers advise as to how to succeed as a true betch in those areas of your life. The authors are on Instagram and have a pretty funny account.
  2. We Were Liars - E. Lockhart
    This one was highly recommended by a friend who teaches high school English. It also served as my companion for half of my flight across the country. The story follows a young girl who had recently suffered from a terrible accident, but she couldn't remember exactly what happened. She returns to her family island (huge, wealthy white trust fund family) and seeks assistance from her cousins and friend to piece it back together. I really hope they make a movie out of this.
  3. Bare Bones - Bobby Bones
    Love. When I moved to Ga., the only stations my radio picked up were country, and that's how I learned about the Bobby Bones Show. I listen most mornings on my drive to work, and in April I saw his comedy show in Tuscaloosa, Ala. I've been so excited for his book since he started talking about it on air a few months back. I probably read it too fast, but his story is so encouraging. He comes from a hard childhood, but keeps #fightgrindrepeating to get to where he is today. Such a great read💙
