Before my love for Netflix, I had a love for books. I was that kid always reading for the spare 10 minutes in class, the one checking out more books than they could carry from the library and the one who fell asleep with book on chest.
One of my goals for 2015 is to read at least 24 books. That's two a month, which I would like to think is very doable. The best part is that I have a list of 24 ready to go so there is no excuse of "I don't have anything to read" which leads to aimless browsing on Amazon.
I've always enjoyed Amy Poheler's strong, indepent female characters in her comedies and as a reflection of her life, so I cannot wait to dive into her storytelling.
True story, up until the past few years I had read every single John Grisham novel and was always thankful that my life did not play out like one of his Southern courtroom dramas. As an author who typically publishes a book every year, I might have some more catching up to do.
I began reading The Tea Rose this weekend and I'm already hooked. Any novel that starts off with a murder in 17th century East London is bound to catch my attention. Also it's the first in a series, and as a person who is always a little sad when I turn the last page of a book, I love knowing that the story continues.
Several years ago I read The Namesake by Lahiri, and The Lowland has been on my "To Read" list since it was published in 2013. It is the tale of two very different brothers growing up in a neighborhood of Calcutta during the 1960s, a time of political rebellion.
Have any of you read these books? Any comments? I can't wait to continue to share my list with you throughout the year :)
