Being a full time student and working full time, one of my favorite hobbies gets seriously neglected: reading.
I LOVE to read, and I typically read a lot. However, the guilt that accompanies reading for pleasure when I can list off a million other things I should be doing is outstanding. Therefore, my reading has recently been very neglected.
That doesn’t mean I’m going to refrain from sharing some of my favorite books with you 🙂 The following are some books you should probably read, soon!
ANYTHING by Jodi Picoult
No, Anything is not the title. I mean any of her books are winners as far as I’m concerned. She is a phenomenal writer and her books are all engaging and thought provoking. Sometimes, they bring tears. A few of my favorites she has written include Nineteen minutes, My sisters keeper, Keeping Faith, and Perfect Match. Check any of them out ASAP!
Unbearable Lightness by Portia DeRossi
As someone who has lived with an Eating Disorder, I am fascinated with books that focus on the topic. I will read any book that touches upon the topic regardless of if I think it will be a trigger. This book was beautifully written, but may be a trigger to many who have lived with Eating Disorders. It may be an interesting read for someone trying to learn more about ED’s as well. I forced myself to read this one slowly, I didn’t want it to end.
Knocked Up by Rebecca Eckler
This was hands down one of the funniest books I have read. I caught myself LOLing at times. The book focuses on a woman who becomes pregnant when pregnancy is the last thing on her agenda. The author received much flack for some of the opinions and choices made in the book. I read the book as fiction and really enjoyed it. One could definitely dissect it and judge her, but one could do that with anything in life.
What is your favorite book? Any recommendations?
