When the lockdown began, I was all: THIS IS THE PERFECT OPPORTUNITY TO WRITE 3 BOOKS AND READ A MILLION MORE!
Of course, I read less than I usually do because mental health and quarantine do not go together. But I’m finally finding my rhythm again, which is great news! And I still read quite a few books, considering, including some new favorites!
Anyway, here are the top 5 books I read during this weirdly awesome and terrifying time.
ONE: Skyward, Brandon Sanderson
Okay, so this was my first Sanderson book, and I get the hype now. Skyward was so awesome. Skyward was so awesome. Skyward was so awesome. Skyward was so awesome. Skyward was so awesome. Skyward was so awesome. (Really this would be my entire review I could go on.)
TWO: Becoming, Michelle Obama
I started reading audiobooks during qarantine while taking long walks in the woods. And having Michelle Obama narrate me her stories as I breathed in the smell of melting snow and wet forest was just LIFE. Truly recommend the audiobook for this one.
THREE: Beach Read, Emily Henry
This is the comfort read you NEED, I am telling you. And it was so clever and full of really importand topics. I’m so glad I was recommended this one by the lovely Jasmine from readingwithjax!
FOUR: Born a Crime, Trevor Noah
I laughed, and I cried, and I would do it again. This is such an amazing book. (Again, I went audio for this one and it was the ultimate experience.)
FIVE: Reread of The Hunger Games.
I don’t know if quarantine was like that for you too, but it totally put me in the biggest nostalgic mood of all times. I found myself cravings things that I had been obsessed with in the past, so I rewatched The 100 and I reread The Hunger Games. (Plus, it was preparation for the new book, which I still need to read, whoops.)
So there you have them, my favorite reads of quarantine!
