Self-proclaimed book worm here. I have to admit that 100% of my “reading” lately has been audiobooks.. Things have been very busy, but that does not give me an excuse to stop reading!
I don’t know what’s been with me lately, but the books I have been reading haven’t been the happiest of topics, necessarily. Anyway, here you go.. They’re all amazing. I read a few books that weren’t necessarily amazing, so I didn’t include them on this list.
Happy Wednesday, friends! Make it a great day!!

Lilac Girls by Martha Hall Kelly: Let’s start off strong. I FLEW through this book because it’s amazing. Uh-mazing. This tells the stories of some female Polish Holocaust victims who were experimented on by Nazi doctors. Based on a true story, it is riveting and depressing to know what these amazing, strong women went through.
Boys in a Boat by Daniel James Brown: Sticking with the World War II theme, Boys in a Boat is an absolute masterpiece. Brown interviewed the members of the 1936 Berlin Olympics who miraculously defeated Hitler’s Germany in the rowing competition. It’s a story of resilience and triumph.. I can’t recommend this book enough.
Moon Over Manifest by Clare Vanderpool: This young adult’s lit is such a cute story about a young girl who gets sent away to her father’s childhood hometown for the summer. There she learns secrets of the town’s past and goes on many adventures. A great story for any age, the writing style and little pieces of humor make for an entertaining read.
The Phenomenon by Rick Ankiel: Did you know that pitchers can just randomly forget how to pitch? Yeah, I didn’t either. There’s no explanation for it, but Rick Ankiel, a promising young pitcher from the St. Louis Cardinals, knows firsthand that it’s true. This memoir is heart-breaking yet riveting.
Better Than Before by Gretchen Rubin: I LOVE Gretchen Rubin. Her books and insights are so helpful for anyone looking to understand the way they tick better. I also find her theories on how people form and keep habits very true and interesting.
Number the Stars by Lois Lowry: Another great young adult read.. It’s a oldie, but soooo good. Number the Stars is historical fiction about some young girls living in Nazi-occupied Denmark.
