November was an incredible reading month for me, especially after the bomb of October where I think I read only 2 books!?
I got a jump start on some holiday-themed reading and some books I was really excited to dive into. I seem to only be able to get through one audiobook a month. I really love listening to them but I hate being interrupted which means the only time I get to listen is when everyone is sleeping…and then sometimes it’s a fight for me to stay awake! Any suggestions on being a better audiobook reader are appreciated.
My top three favorites for this month:
Going There by Katie Couric: A fascinating look at Katie Couric’s life from her childhood to family life to losing her husband to her role on The Today Show including her friendship with Matt Lauer. I love that she also took us into what she has been doing over the years since leaving The Today Show and CBS News. She does not hold back on anything. Raw, refreshing and brave.
The Matzah Ball by Jean Meltzer: I haven’t seen to be a lot of Jewish holiday-themed fiction stories out there. This one, new this year by a debut author, was a fun ride on what happens when a nice Jewish girl- who is secretly a famous Christmas book author- has to flip everything she knows to produce a Jewish-themed book for her publishers. Enter The Matzah Ball and her camp nemesis/first love who holds the key to her attending this allusive event. So much is packed into this book I could not put it down!
It Ends With Us by Colleen Hoover: When I mentioned on bookstagram that I was reading it, my post was instantly flooded with comments about how much I was going to love this book. I had no idea what it was about, to be honest, and went in blind. That was 100% the right thing to do! Without giving too much away…Lily, a small-town girl, escapes an alcoholic and abusive father, graduates college and move to Boston to start her own business. She falls in love with a charming doctor – who at first seems to be the answer to her prayers – but when her childhood love returns everything is turned upside down. And, honestly, that is just the coating that is the story. It will blow your mind.
