I had SO much fun with my 100 Book Challenge last year, that I decided I was going to track them again. I am not giving myself a goal this year, because I think I was able to read so many last year because of Covid, and how many hours I spent pumping. I am going to add a new section though for upcoming releases, in case you want to order the book and read it with me! Then I’ll just move those titles up with my thoughts once I read them!

This is a slow-build thriller, which I usually don’t love but this is so well written, I didn’t want it to end.
by Cameran Eubanks Wimberly
Cameran is one of my favorite reality tv stars, and my love goes way farther back than Southern Charm. I am one of those unicorns who has seen every single season of The Real World, and she and Brad were my JAM on Real World San Diego. Her book approaches motherhood in such an honest and vulnerable way, I found it to be so relatable.
by Denise Williams
This was the January pick for The Readheads Book Club – I got it on Audible which I usually never do for fiction books, but it was kind of a nice pace.
Books I Read:
by Bobby Akart
Call me a glutton for punishment for reading this in our 10th month of a global pandemic, but It felt timely and relevant. To make matters worse, a big portion of this book is set in Nevada – so the entire thing hit very close to home. But it was super interesting to read about how the beginnings of a pandemic transpire – despite it being fiction. This is a series, and I’ll definitely be continuing on. 7/10.
by Kendra Elliott
For whatever reason, I could not get into this book. To be fair, it could be because of the state of the world and how distracted I am with everything that’s going on – but it wasn’t enough to pull me in given the circumstances. 5/10.
by Rachel Hawkins
Wow – I don’t normally love books based on classics (in this case, Jane Eyre) – but I could not put this down. I still don’t think I even know what exactly happened, or what I’m supposed to believe. I don’t want to say too much more without giving anything away, but read this ASAP. 9/10.
by Maika Moulite
This book was incredibly emotional and timely. Although it is fiction, I didn’t feel like it was. If you’re looking for a fiction book based on current events, definitely check this out.
by Claudia Oshry
I stayed up until midnight waiting for this to be delivered to my Kindle, and then finished it up in Audible on the tread the next morning. And as Claudia would say, it was “everything of the sort.” Loved getting an inside glimpse into my favorite podcaster’s past, cancellation and working her way back up during her epic comeback.
by Tom Nichols
Emily’s therapist recommended this book and I’m only one chapter in but it is FASCINATING.
