I really want to be a person that reads.
You know those people? They're always reading something, or they just finished something. They always have a recommendation. Those people are cool people to me. I want to be those people.
So in an effort to be one of those people I'm planning to read more in 2023. Trouble is, I stuggle finding books I like - books that keep me coming back for more!
So I took to my Instagram - @alymaconair - to ask for some recommendations to get me started. Here are 5 books on my To-Read list for 2023...by the way, support your local bookstore!
- It Ends with Us, by Colleen Hoover - recommended by Amber: "If you haven't read It Ends with Us by Colleen Hoover...I finished it in 2 days. It's intense, but so good!" Read the full plot description here.
2. lighter, by Yung Pueblo - recommended by Billy without any convincing. He just sent the Amazon link. Here's what the cover says: "let go of the past, connect with the present, expand the future." Read the full description here.
3.The Last Mrs. Parrish, by Liv Constantine - recommended by Jessica: "If you like thrillers!" Read the full plot description here. This is a Reese Witherspoon Hello Sunshine Book Club read and it's being adapted into a movie!
4.A Thousand Boy Kisses, by Tillie Cole - recommended by Ashley. I asked her, "Is that a book?" She said, "lol yes." Read the full plot description here.
5.Where the Crawdads Sing, by Delia Owens - recommended by Shawn. Read the full plot description here. As of July 2022, Owens was wanted by authorities for questioning over striking similarities her book has to a 1990 televised killing in Zambia. The book was made into a movie and was released summer 2022.
