Girl Wash Your Face by Rachel Hollis - For the first book for the first month of the year, this was a really great choice. I loved it! The actual author Rachel read the book on the app which made it even more interesting. I took away so many great points from this book, even found myself writing some of them down. The part about friends was the most intriguing for me. We as women are craving real valuable relationships. We have to start from the beginning and teach ourselves to keep an open mind. Look for commonalities. Ignore how much money you make, or how big or small the house you live in is, weight, socioeconomic background, etc. Pay attention to things like character, heart, wisdom and experience. Your tribe is out there.
The Girl with the Lower Back Tattoo by Amy Schumer - You either love her or hate her. I love her. I might not agree with every single one of her views, but still love her. Her book was so down to earth, really told the story of how she grew up with her sister, and her parents. I really enjoyed it. Oh, and Amy read the book on the app too which was awesome.
The Great Alone by Kristin Hannah - the author has been talked about so much with her book The Nightingale but I haven't read it yet. Don't know why, but I started with this book first. It's about a girl who's parents move her deep into Alaska in the seventies. It was good, a little sad and depressing, but overall a good read.
Maid by Stephanie Land - Stephanie is one tough mama. She worked hard for the circumstances she was in, and really pushed through life to make it on her own. Keep me interested, and enjoyed it.
Turtles All the Way Down by John Green - This book was randomly chosen from a list of recommendations on the Libby app so I went with it. It's about a girl with a severe case of OCD and anxiety. Her thoughts almost become your own, it's that intense, for me at least. It was difficult to get into this book at first, but once I pushed through it became more clear. Glad I read it.
I'm currently working my way through Sharp Objects it's starting to get good. I've always wanted to read Gillian Flynn books. HBO even made a series about this book. Next on my list for February is The Dirty Life.
