what should i read?


Last year, I made it a goal of mine to read more. Just how much more was up to me but I gave myself a goal of thirty books for the year. And guess what: I actually reached it. I read memoirs and both fiction and non-fiction works. I read books on social justice and culture, family histories and anecdotes from first-generation American writers.

Some books were just so beautifully written like Pachinko by Min Jin Lee and Nina Riggs' The Bright Hour. Dennis Lehane's Since We Fell was a four-hundred plus page thriller I couldn't put down. And Hunger by Roxane Gay was emotional and raw and made me feel so many different things. Reading so much last year rekindled my love with books and gave me a better way to wind down at the end of the night instead of mindlessly scrolling through all my social media apps on my phone. Reading made me more empathetic and allowed me to let my mind explore other worlds outside of my own. And I noticed that my children started picking up more books themselves!

This year, I'm going to make it a point to read even more. I'm shooting for forty books and would love recommendations from you! I'm currently in the throes of The Immortalists by Chloe Benjamin and I'm loving every page so far.

So tell me, what should I put on my list this year?
