Worth a Read

Mondays are always super exhausting in my world, and probably in your world, as well!  One of my favorite things to do after a long day at work is unwind with a good book.  The most stressful thing for me when it comes to reading is finding a good book!  I need to look into some kind of subscription where they send you a book or two every month...  Does that exist?

Anyway, here are the books I'm debating on picking up after work.  Which one do you vote for?

"On a warm summer morning in North Carthage, Missouri, it is Nick and Amy Dunne’s fifth wedding anniversary. Presents are being wrapped and reservations are being made when Nick’s clever and beautiful wife disappears. Husband-of-the-Year Nick isn’t doing himself any favors with cringe-worthy daydreams about the slope and shape of his wife’s head, but passages from Amy's diary reveal the alpha-girl perfectionist could have put anyone dangerously on edge. Under mounting pressure from the police and the media—as well as Amy’s fiercely doting parents—the town golden boy parades an endless series of lies, deceits, and inappropriate behavior. Nick is oddly evasive, and he’s definitely bitter—but is he really a killer?" - Amazon
I have been wanting to read this book for awhile, and now that the movie is out, the previews are making me want to read it even more.  When I read, I usually read a heavy crime book, and then wash it down with something super light hearted and easy to read.

"Erik Larson—author of #1 bestseller In the Garden of Beasts—intertwines the true tale of the 1893 World's Fair and the cunning serial killer who used the fair to lure his victims to their death. Combining meticulous research with nail-biting storytelling, Erik Larson has crafted a narrative with all the wonder of newly discovered history and the thrills of the best fiction." - Amazon
I heard about this book from another blogger, and I have been intrigued ever since.  If it takes place in 1893, though, I'm not sure if I'll be able to make it through the whole thing.

I'm obsessed with women in business.  (If you don't believe me, read tomorrow's blog post for further proof.)  Part of me is super hellbent on going to law school, and the other part of me wants to go ahead and begin "building my empire."  #GIRLBOSS is the autobiography of the founder and CEO of Nasty Gal, Sophia Amoruso. I feel like there is a lot to be learned from this book!  (P.S. - Extra love the title because I have a female boss, and she is amazing.)

Now I wanna know - what are you reading?  Any reviews on the books I'm reading?

Hope your Monday is as amazing as a Monday can be!

  1. Now I want to read all of them! But Gone Girl definitely sounds the best!
