I’m not going to lie and say I’ve always been an avid reader, I have not. I’ve never really been one to read for fun. There have been books that I’ve had to read for school that have peeked my interest and weren’t a total snooze fest to get through but overall if I didn’t have to read I wasn’t going to unless it was a magazine which isn’t really the same thing. I’ve always kind of envied friends of mine who genuinely enjoyed reading, like how did they know what to pick out at the bookstore, how did they have a favorite author, like what?! I just couldn’t understand. I’ve always preferred to be entertained by TV which makes me sound absolutely terrible but 100% sure. If I wasn’t with friends or outside doing something, I could always be found curled up in bed or on the couch with the dogs watching Netflix or whatever was on my DVR. Don’t get me wrong this is still going to be happening, I mean who am I kidding I love a good binge sesh.
I’ve recently and completely randomly fallen in love with reading… for the hell of it, shocking, I know. I was at Target one day and decided to stroll over to the book section and I picked up A Stranger in the House by Shari Lapena. Ever since that day and that book (which has only been about a month in all honestly) I’ve been hooked on reading. So far I’ve read that book, The Silent Patient (literally a PAGE TURNER & a MAJOR plot twist). When Life Gives You Lululemons is one I’ve been so many people talk about so I had to grab it, it’s a fun easy read. If you liked The Devil’s Wears Prada then you’ll totally love it. The next book I picked up & currently have waiting for me to read is An Unwanted Guest, it’s also written by Shari Lapena. I have a feeling she is going to be my go-to author. If you love suspense then she’s your girl.
I have a few books in my Amazon cart that I’m excited to try & I’ll definitely share when I’ve finished. I have a feeling this reading kick is here to stay & I’m all for it!
