Today is National Read a Book Day! In honor of the day, I would love to share some of my favorite reads.
First, I have to tell you that the San Antonio Public Libary is amazing. It’s where I get all of my audiobook, digital, and physical books. I love downloading audiobooks for my commute and workouts. You can even use their website to reserve books at your local branch. Now grab your beverage of choice and get ready for some reading recommendations.
If you loved Gone Girl and Girl on a Train then Behind Her Eyes by Sarah Pinborough is for you. The twisted relationship drama wrapped in mystery will keep you turning pages.
If you love Insecure then you NEED to read Issa Rea’s book, The Misadventures of Awkward Black Girl. This collection of humorous essays is sure to entertain you while you wait out the remainder of summer.
If you are looking for some local flair then you should read (or re-read) The House on Mango Street by Sandra Cisneros. If you pay close attention then you might be able to gather some clues about her old home here in San Antonio.
If you love a little sci-fi fantasy then you need to check out All Our Wrong Todays by Elian Mastai. This is one of the best books I have read this year and I cannot recommend it enough. (But I do love my sci-fi)
Want something with Oprah’s approval? The Underground Railroad by Colson Whitehead is your must-read. Don’t be fooled into thinking that this is a light, entertaining read just because Oprah gave it her stamp. This book is a good reminder of American’s beginnings.
Are you looking for some self-improvement or a fresh start with the new season? Then The Subtle Art of Not Giving a F*ck by Mark Manson is your ticket.
