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.
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.
– 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.
