I love to read so I figured why not give you my top 5 books to read during these long winter months. I have read all 5 of these books this year so they are pretty fresh in my mind and I tried to get 5 different types of books so we could cover a little bit of everything and get a little something for everyone.
Honestly, it was hard to narrow this down to just 5 books. If you want another book recommendation, send me a message, I have a plethora of books I could tell you about. 🙂
- In Farleigh Field – Rhys Bowen
This is such a great book if you are into historical fiction. It is inspired by actual events and people of World War II with the struggles of war, class, family, love, and betrayal. It even has a fictional Coco Chanel in it, which I loved! It was a bit long but it was really good! I highly suggest it. In Farleigh Field was published this year and has another one titled The Tuscan Child coming out next year that I’m looking forward to picking up.
- White Lines (and the two following books) – Tracy Brown
I think these books fall under urban fiction, but I’m not positive on that. It is also a trilogy, but they aren’t ones you have to read the first to understand the second, which is nice. This one is a guilty pleasure for me. I love stories, movies, documentaries, books, etc. about drugs and these books have everything! Love, drama, violence, drugs, gangs, family drama, reconciliation, etc. The first one was the best but the following two books [White Lines II Sunny and White Lines III All Falls Down] are also good.
- Sisters In Law – Linda Hirshman
This is a non-fiction book about Sandra Day O’Connor and Ruth Bader Ginsburg, which is normally not my book of choice but this one was really interesting so don’t let that keep you away from this one. It starts before they were even in law school and goes on to when they were Supreme Court Justices.
- Final Girls – Riley Sager
I got this one in my Book Of The Month Club and I have not yet gotten a book I didn’t like. This one is full of suspense and goes back and forth from the past to the present, which is something I love in books. If you are squeamish about blood, violence, or murder you shouldn’t read this book, it’s not gory but I still wouldn’t suggest reading it.
- The Secrets She Keeps – Michael Robotham
This book is a psychological thriller and suspense novel. It is focused on two women and every other chapter switches between the two until their lives come crashing together, it reminded me a lot of The Girl on the Train, which I also loved. This one was called “an absolute master” by Stephen King, which is why I choose to read it.
