Books, Lifestyle / Tuesday, September 19th, 2017
These photos are old, I just never posted them. Also, I still had my brunette hair, which do you like more, brunette or blonde?

This month has been extra busy, so I didn’t have as much time to read. However, I do have a list of good books that are a definite must read. Typically, I don’t like reading as much, so when I pick a book it has to be the absolute best book out there. Is that just me? (hope not!)

Any who, below is a small book summary as well as my must read books:

1. My Not So Perfect Life by Sophie Kinsella

When I saw this book in my “recommended” section, I was automatically drawn to their book cover. I know people say don’t judge a book by it’s cover and some times that is true, but not every time. I almost always judge a book by it’s cover. Then I read the summary of the book and I was sold. In today’s day and age where everything revolves around social media and curating the “perfect life”, this book seemed like a breath of fresh air. I did start this book and almost half way in so I will keep you posted when I finish it.

Book summary:

Katie Brenner has the perfect life on the surface: she has an apartment in London (very expensive place to live in), she’s got a glamorous job and a very pleasing Instagram feed.

In reality, it’s a tiny apartment with no space to breath, long and rigorous commute to en entry admin job, and the pleasing Instagram feed is not exactly her real life.

All the stars seem to line up in Katie’s favor until her mega-successful boss Demeter fires her. Devastated, she has to move back home and help her dad with his new glamping business.

When all of a sudden Demeter and her perfect family book in for a holiday, and Katie is so tempted to grab the opportunity. She could either get revenge in Demeter for crushing her dreams or she could try to get her job back? Or perhaps, Demeter doesn’t have such a perfect like and Katie and her have much more in common than it seems.

2. White Girl Problems by Babe Walker 

I didn’t pick this book out, my best friend actually read it first. She said it was hilarious and that I have to read it. I am borrowing the book now and so close to finishing it. I think I have like 2 chapters left. One thing for sure is that this book is absolutely hilarious. From page one you will be laughing and not one chapter that is boring.

Book summary:

Babe Walker is your typical manicured white girl with expensive Louboutins, obsessive smoothie habits, has a mother she’s never met and a large following on Twitter.
Babe Walker is trying to be perfect in every way and every day. But her “problems” have landed her in shopping rehab–that’s what happens when you spend $246,893.50 in one afternoon at Barneys. Now her Adderall-induced flash of inspiration motived her to write this memoir, revealing the gut-wrenching hurdles she’s had to overcome in order to be perfect in every way, every day. Hurdles such as: – I hate my horse.
– Every job I’ve ever had is the worst job I’ve ever had.
– He’s not a doctor, a lawyer, or a prince.
– I’ll eat anything, as long as it’s gluten-free, dairy-free, low-carb, low-fat, low-calorie, sugar-free, and organic.

3. The Good Daughter by Karin Slaughter

So this is a true must read book for me as I haven’t read it yet. Also, this wouldn’t be a list without at least one psychological thriller. I don’t know why, but I love them so much. The second I saw this book got released, I knew I need to get my hands on it. The book just sounds like it is similar to The Obsession by Nora Roberts, which was a really good book. I highly recommend to anyone who hasn’t read it yet. 
Book summary:

“Two girls are forced into the woods at gunpoint. One runs for her life. One is left behind…
Twenty-eight years ago, Charlotte and Samantha Quinn’s happy small-town family life was torn apart by a terrifying attack on their family home. It left their mother dead. It left their father — Pikeville’s notorious defense attorney — devastated. And it left the family fractured beyond repair, consumed by secrets from that terrible night.
Twenty-eight years later, and Charlie has followed in her father’s footsteps to become a lawyer herself — the ideal good daughter. But when violence comes to Pikeville again — and a shocking tragedy leaves the whole town traumatized — Charlie is plunged into a nightmare. Not only is she the first witness on the scene, but it’s a case that unleashes the terrible memories she’s spent so long trying to suppress. Because the shocking truth about the crime that destroyed her family nearly thirty years ago won’t stay buried forever…”
This is it for today’s must read books in September. If you have any favorites, please let me know in the comments below. I would love to hear your recommendations. The Obsession by Nora Roberts was actually a recommendation by a sweet reader. I think that’s definitely the best way to find a good book is through recommendations. 
Thanks for stopping by,
