Screen Shot 2019-10-19 at 8.52.30 PM

As we head into not just a new year but a new decade I thought I’d do my top books of the decade.

It was supposed to be a list of 10 but wound up doubled. Some might be controversial picks but I enjoyed all of them for many different reasons. And I’ve found that even the controversial ones are still being talked about.

So the books that defined my decade:

Daisy Jones & The Six

By: Taylor Jenkins Reid

70’s era drugs, sex and rock & roll by the author of The Seven Husbands of Evelyn Hugo… yeah, this was a a little high on my most anticipated reads list this year. Even the subject matter appeals to me so it hurts to admit…

I’m also a (cheap) cookie connoisseur so am including below the 5 greatest cookies of all time.

May Wrap-Up: A Little of Everything…

may wrap-up

May has come and gone. It was mostly a good month. I seemed completely unable to keep my mind on anything longer than it takes to read a book (and I started probably a dozen that I put aside for later.)

My nephew visited for the Memorial Day weekend and I got to buy him books! Which was nice because usually he’s all about the toys 🙂

Work- which is usually slow this time of year very much hasn’t been. I don’t know if that’s good or bad yet. Also we’re already hitting triple digits here and I’m trying to find new and exciting ways to exercise without going outside or going to join a gym. But on to the important things…

The Seven Husbands of Evelyn Hugo

Taylor Jenkins Reid

Grade: A

So I had heard nothing but good things about this book. Recently one reviewer I follow said it was one of her all time favorites so I finally, finally decided to just sit and read it and I’m so glad I did. This one lived up to the hype and it’s definitely one of my top reads of the year.
