Give me a puppy and a stack of books for the best kind of day!
I’m sharing my favorite reads of the year! One book sent me on a rabbit hole of reading ALL THINGS about the Kennedy family! I have truly been fascinated and have listened/read way too much! Add these titles to your book list!
The Midnight Library: I started the year off reading this one and still think about it! The main character is given different scenarios of how her life could’ve been if she would’ve made different decisions. It was hard to read at first and dark but overtime, it captured me!
Meant to Be: Oh, Meant to Be! This story, loosely based on the love story of JFK, Jr. and Carolyn Bessette was a fun one to read! However, it then made me want to learn all about the Kennedy family! This book also made me sad for what could have been…
The Book of Lost Names: Set during WWII, The Book of Lost Names follows a young girl who becomes a forger and helps children make it to safety in a war-torn France. This was a heartbreaking one to read but also a beautiful story! When I was in France, I couldn’t help but think of this story and what that time period would’ve been like.
Remarkably Bright Creatures: If you’re unsure about reading about an octopus, pick this book up and you’ll be glad you did! This is a story of redepemption, family and overcoming the past. I loved this one!
Mrs. Kennedy and Me: Written by Jackie’s secret service agent, Clint Hill, this book gives you a glimpse into ”Camelot” and all the drama, personal details and heartache that came after the assassination of President Kennedy.
