Book Club Lovers March is here! I am currently reading Three Women, let me say this right now – I am shook. I have never ever read a book like this, it’s very different. Three Women is different in a way that makes it a very important book in the literary world. We needed this book and it needs us to read it. I’m not reading it as fast as I should, because I kind of want it to last.
This month will be a mix of books I want to read, books I’ve already read and some pretty unique suggestions from you guys. If you haven’t been doing so already, and I know a lot of you are. Tag me in your current reads on your socials, I’m on instagram, twitter and of course you can email me.
Americanah by Chimamanda Ngozi Adiche
What a BOOK!!!, I read this within a year of relocating to the United States and I never felt like I connected with a book so much. I could relate to everything the character was going through, it was such a phenomenal book and such an important story. To everyone who has relocated, or your parents made the move for you please give this book a read. Adiche has such unique voice and her writing is art in motion. Get book here.
We Were The Lucky Ones by Georgia Hunter
I will admit I have not read this book but it seems very interesting. After reading Daughters of Dragon, I find myself drawn to books with rich historical background. They remind me that books soothe, humor and educate us. Set in the backdrop of World War II, the story is about five families struggling to cope as the world around them seems to fall apart. Based on the authors own family, a Jewish family in Poland this is a true story that promises to be informative and addictive. This is definitely one I want to read before summer. Get book here.
Open Book by Jessica Simpson
When I tell you that I was a huge Jessica Simpson and Nick Lachey fan I mean the biggest. I was watching her on Doctor Oz as I did my nails earlier in February and she was promoting her book. I bought it immediately, I’ve been dying to hear her story, I always feel like people say more in their books than they do in interviews. Simpson mentioned in the interview that she struggled with drug addiction and that her and Nick’s marriage was a show they put on for the camera’s she also mentioned that she wished she had made him sign a prenup. Honey I can NOT wait to dig my teeth into this book. Get book here.
Around The Way Girl by Taraji P. Henson
This was the first book I read the start of 2019, I loved every single page. I purchased the audio version which was narrated by Taraji herself and let me tell you this, sis can act. Just her narrating the book kept me interested, I was able to see, hear and touch the scenes as she described them. The book is about her life growing up in a somewhat broken home, her father’s mental health and her journey to stardom. It’s a pretty intense book and Taraji holds nothing back, I know I have mentioned this book before but I just left Target. Taraji just launched a hair care line and I picked up her edge tamer, that’s when I remembered how good her book was. Get book here.
All The Light We Cannot See by Anthony Doerr
So I bought this book two years ago. Started to read it thought it had a really interesting start but put it down and never picked it back up. It started with a blind girl who was alone in her home waiting for some relative to come home, but there is a war happening and i’m not sure where I left off but it seems like he never came home. There is a German soldier who helps her and I think the story focuses on their relationship/friendship. I plan to pick this book back up again, because now I’m writing this and I’m really curious about what will happen to this girl. Also I don’t know about you guys but I love a book with a good title, this title is literally poetry and I dig it. Get Book here.
The Seven Husbands Of Evelyn Hugo by Taylor Jenkins-Reid
With a title like that, this book already has a reputation to live up to. After reading somebodies mini review of this book and when I tell you my curiosity is peeked, I mean it’s about to burst. It’s about an aging Hollywood star who hires a an unknown reporter to write her autobiography. This includes her multiple marriages and the very big difference between her public life and her private life. So many good reviews on this book, you can check out the review here. Get book here.
The Body Keeps The Score by Bessel Van Der Kolk, M.D.
This was a book from a member of the Book Club and it seems really interesting. I have always been a fan of books that were self help themed and more psychology based, I only got int Fiction late last year. As an avid reader we have to break away from our norms every now and again and read something we wouldn’t read. This book is definitely something I plan on reading, because it focuses on Trauma. Trauma is a way of life for many of us and it does affect us, as someone who is currently suffering silently from a lot of trauma, I was really interested when I was tagged by one of my followers on this book. I can’t wait to see what it has to say about dealing with this type of thing. Get book here.
How To Walk Away by Katherine Center
Im not sure about this book, I’ve never read it and saw a review on it when I was scrolling the internet for new reads. This caught my eye and I feel like it will be good. It’s about a woman who gets engaged. Right after she meets in a terrible accident, romantic, funny and sad at the same time. If you guys do read this one please let me know what you think. Get book here.
So that’s what I have on my March reading list and as usual I look forward to seeing your tags and Dm’s on Instagram. I have been loving your posts and I’m so proud of the little reading community we are building. See you soon love bugs.
