February 2016 Reads
I am proud to write that I have met my goal of reading four books for January. Last month, I chose books from different genres; family relationships, home improvement, fiction, and memoir. This month, I will continue to channel the inquisitive bee in me and will delve into the essay, history, memoir and modern kids classic genre.
Here are the four titles I read this month:
- Why Not Me? By Mindy Kaling – I read this one because I like Mindy as an actress, and wanted to know more about her through her collections of essays, which I found to be both funny and insightful.
- Holes by Louis Sacher – I enjoyed this book very much, to the point that I read it in a couple of days. I chose this title because I had heard of it, and wanted to know why it had received the honors it did.
- The Wright Brothers by McCullough – I have never read a history novel and am glad that I did. I love learning lessons from the past.
- Yes, Please by Amy Poehler – I admire Amy and after reading her memoir, I adore her. Her advice throughout was spot on for any woman trying to make it in just about anything in life. We need to not get pulled down the negativity train and focus on us and what makes us happy. Getting out of your comfort zone, taking risks, finding something about yourself that you didn’t realize you had in you are words we don’t hear often enough and was refreshing to read Amy write about its importance.
I am excited to keep the momentum going get started on my March list - I'll be starting the month with A Little Life by Hanya Yanagihara.
