Anxious People: A Great Read for Busy Times

Anxious People

By: Fredrik Backman

Anxious People is a great holiday read because it’s a pretty fast read number one but honestly the beginning of the book the characters were all kind of unlikable assholes (of varying degree) except the bank robber who I just felt sorry for but than they all really grown on you.

Feels like family and the holidays to me.

Tsarina: The OG Peter and Catherine

Tsarina

By: Ellen Alpstein

I enjoyed the (not really) historical drama The Great earlier this year so when I was offered a chance to read Tsarina as part of a blog tour I was like sign me up! Especially seeing as how the book is about the first Empress Catherine and Peter the Great.

Thanks to the publishers and Netgalley for the e-arc of the book. It didn’t change by opinion of the book in anyway.

Pretending Perfection Exists & Life Isn’t A Mess

Pretending

By: Holly Bourne

I hate men.

So the novel starts. April goes into far greater detail than I will here but suffice it to say I was a little worried at the start of the book. And I was completely unsure what to expect, as I heard of but never read Holly Bourne before this, and maybe I didn’t get what I thought I would.

But I got a good and interesting read.

Recs for The Best Themed Book Month of the Year

It’s non-fiction November usually the happiest (book) time of year!

Okay here’s a confession I used to get non-fiction confused with fiction because naturally I thought non-fiction meant… not true and fiction was true. Obviously I figured that out. Sometime in college I think but otherwise I thought I’d recommend some good not fiction books I’ve read recently.
