Recent Reads – January

You know that feeling when you’re so bundled up that you feel like you’re wearing one of those big sumo wrestling body suits and you can hardly move so you walk like the tin man? And because you’re so bundled you think that there is no possible way that you will ever be cold again? And then you actually walk outside and the brutal -35◦F wind chill slaps you in the face and your noise hairs freeze? Do you know what we’re talking about?

This is Minnesota in January, friends. Which means all we really want to do right now is drink ho-cho (hot chocolate) and curl up on the couch and read some good books.

We started a book club a few months ago with friends and besides eating cheese, drinking vino and chatting about non-book-club-related topics, we have actually read some good books! Here are the recent reads:

 

  • The Husband’s Secret by Liane Moriarty: Told from the perspective of three different women, this book was so good that we stayed up way too late each night for a week because we needed to know how each woman’s story was going to end. Love, loss, betrayal, and forgiveness. This is a page turner.

 

  • Where’d you Go, Bernadette by Mari Semple: We were laughing so hard while reading the story of 15-year-old Bee and her mom, Bernadette that we had to set the book down and wait for our eyes to stop tearing. The writing is clever and the characters are extremely entertaining.

Winter is hibernation season, so go read some good books! And make sure to double dip in some warm eats while curled up on the couch by the fire.
