Good Books

I love to read – there is nothing quite like a book to provide an escape, an education, or a life lesson. More often than not I have a book in my backpack and squeeze in a couple pages here and there throughout the day.

My most favorite place to read? At the bar while sipping a cocktail.

If you’re not sure what to read next, here are some of my favorites! Many of these books have been my Book of the Month selections – it’s been such a wonderful introduction to new authors, genres, and books I may have overlooked elsewhere. Highly recommend (and a subscription makes a great gift for book lovers)!

Currently reading: The Seven Husbands of Evelyn Hugo by Taylor Jenkins Reid

Up next: The Lions of Fifth Avenue by Fiona Davis
