Every year I strive to make a goal to read at least one book per month. I know that for some this goal seems laughable and for others it seems lofty. For me, it has become more and more difficult to find time to read. Every time I sit down, I shuffle between a few different things on my reading list, and before I know it, it’s the end of the year and I haven’t made it through much.
While I am currently reading Joan Didion “South and West“, I am also creating a list of books I’d like to read in 2018.
What’s on your list? Have you read any of the below?
The Glass Castle
Excited to read this rags to riches memoir about a dysfunctional family. And then watch the film starring Brie Larson.
They Can't Kill Us Until They Kill Us
Seems like the perfect time for this collection of essays that intertwine music and the current political climate.
Interpreter of Maladies
I'll admit this one has been on my book shelf for too long, but this is the year I get to these short stories about Indian Americans navigating love and American culture.
Men Without Women
I'll read absolutely anything by Murakami.
Drinking: A Love Story
A journalist describes her twenty years as a functioning alcoholic.
The Year of Magical Thinking
Didion's attempt to make sense of her life following the loss of her husband. I'll start this when I need a good cry.
You'll Grow Out of It
A fast-paced and, apparently, hysterical memoir from stand up comic and writer, Jessi Klein, known for Inside Amy Schumer, SNL and Kroll Show.
No One Belongs Here More Than You
I've heard this one is as hard to put down as it is strange.
Based on more than forty interviews with Jobs conducted over two years- this is my required business read for the year.
Amanda de Cadenet
It's Messy: On Boys, Boobs, and Badass Women
I feel like “Boys, Boobs, and, Badass Women” kind of says it all.
