One of my 30 by 30 goals is to read 30 (non-school or work related) books. Some months I check a lot of books off the list while it feels like there is absolutely no time to read other months. You can see all 25/30 books that I've read in the last year here. Here are some books that I've managed to read in the last few weeks and four more that I can't wait to finish.
Dark Places | I absolutely loved Gone Girl, so I wanted to read more of Gillian Flynn's books. Dark Places, Flynn's second book, is about a 30-something girl who survived her family's massacre and her brother who was convicted of the crime. I found the book a bit slow at first but ended up really enjoying it. Rating: 4/5
Sharp Objects | Sharp Objects was Gillian Flynn's first book and took me all of two days to read.This book is truly filled with suspense and thrill, and had me hooked form the beginning. I loved trying to figure out all of the secrets, twists, and turns that Flynn put forth. Rating: 4.5 stars
The Scorch Trials (Maze Runner, Book 2) and The Death Cure (Maze Runner, Book Three) | I'm going to say it – this might be my favorite young adult dystopian series. Because until some series (such as the The The Hunger Games Trilogy, Divergent, and Matched), I really liked all three books and I wasn't disappointed with the last book of the series.
Current / Future Reads
Full Dark, No Stars | as I the only one surprised to find out that Stephen King is the master of short stories? I've been reading this collection of stories off and on for the last couple of years, actually. These short stories range in topic, length, and creep factor (but they are all pretty damn creepy). These stories are a must read for anyone who loves a good thriller.
Yes Please | Raise your hand if you want to be Amy Poehler's best friend. I can't wait to start reading this one.
The Andy Cohen Diaries: A Deep Look at a Shallow Year | I'm not at all ashamed to admit that I LOVE everything Bravo / Andy Cohen.
What Alice Forgot | This book has been on my list for a while since I read The Husband's Secret.
