What I've Read In March

Wednesday, March 22, 2017

I've been on a bit of a reading binge lately. It's always been one of my favorite things to do, but there's this thing called Netflix that calls me away & before I know it all my reading time has been stolen.

BUT lately I've been trying to change that, & I'm reminded how much I genuinely enjoy sitting down & getting lost in a story. 

Here's what I've been getting lost in this month:

Talking As Fast As I Can by Lauren Graham
If you're into memoirs & a Gilmore Girls fan like I am, you'll want to read this. I really want to meet Lauren, not only because she seems like that cool aunt type, but so I can ask her if her sense of humor has always been like Lorelai Gilmore's or if she picked it up from playing the character for so long. Either way it's great! A mix of stories from her childhood & early days in Hollywood and a collection of diary style entries from the 'year in the life' set, it's the type of memoir that feels like coffee with an old friend.

The Heiresses by Sara Shepard
This book has actually been on my shelf for ages, waiting to be read. I saw it at Target one day, thought 'ooo, the PLL girl,' & it was in my cart. I've been very into mysteries recently and this is such a great read if you're looking for something light but intriguing. The premise is around five cousins from a prominent family struck by mysterious tragedies (think modern day Kennedys) & the aftermath of Poppy's (one of the cousins) death. Very PLL but also really different!

My Best Friend's Exorcism by Grady Hendrix 
This one I've only just started, but it's another mystery/ thriller, about, well, an exorcism.
"The year is 1988. High school sophomores Abby and Gretchen have been best friends since fourth grade. But after an evening of skinny-dipping goes disastrously wrong, Gretchen begins to act…different. She’s moody. She’s irritable. And bizarre incidents keep happening whenever she’s nearby. Abby’s investigation leads her to some startling discoveries..." 
I'm not familiar with Grady Hendrix so it'll be interesting to see her writing style. Will update! Maybe snapchat/ insta story?

QUESTION: kinda wanting to start a book club type series, maybe pick a book each month or so & chat on IG/ here about it. Would y'all be into it? ANNNNDDD......

What have y'all been reading? Anything I need to add to my (never-ending) 'to read' list? SPILL.
