Before I was a mommy, and way before I was an adult, I loved reading.  I loved it so much, that I wanted to become an author.  I’m not picky, either.  Doesn’t matter the genre, I’ll read it.  Mystery, horror, romantic, tween, the list is endless of what I’ll read.  Well, now that I am a mom, I don’t get much time to read (unless you want to count reading The Lorax or Pinkalicious five times in a row at bedtime).  Lately, I’ve been doing my best to make time to get back to my old passion.  I’m on a mission to make my mornings more intentional and doing things for me before my kids wake up for the day.  I’ve scheduled half an hour of reading into my morning routine.  Below is a list of books I’d love to read again or can’t wait to get my hands on during my little morning reading sessions.

The Good Girl-Mary Kubrica

I read this book while we were on a family road trip and I could not put it down!  The plot twist killed me.  It is not what you suspect at all.  Whenever someone asks what book they should read, The Good Girl is automatically my first answer. I don’t want to give anything away, just read it.

The Husband’s Secret-Liane Moriarty

This book is a seriously good read by Moriarty.  It follows three very different women whose lives become intertwined by one tragedy.  She weaves everything together so beautifully and I was enthralled to the very end.

The Innocent Man: Murder and Injustice in a Small Town-John Grisham

If you like non-fiction, The Innocent Man is a good read. I picked it up not realizing it was based on actual events and was riveted.  John Grisham lays out the tale of Ron Williamson, who was blamed for a grizzly death he had nothing to do with.  You can Google the story, but Grisham does an excellent job of relaying all the details from before, during and after Williamson’s arrest, trial, imprisonment and exoneration.

The Girl on the Train-Paula Hawkins

I haven’t read this book yet, but I’ve been seeing a lot of previews for the movie starring Emily Blount.  I enjoy reading books that are movies just to see how much they change from platform to platform.  For instance, all books by Nicholas Sparks.  Same plot, different story.  That’s just my opinion, some may feel differently.  I do have The Girl on the Train downloaded on my Kindle App on my phone and can’t wait to dive into it.

Two by Two-Nicholas Sparks

Another book I haven’t read yet, but want to.  I’m pretty sure I’m going to need a couple of back to back half hour sessions for this one.  Sparks always has a way of pulling the reader into the book and you feel all the feelings as you are reading.  I’ve read a few of his books and I have not been disappointed by any of them.  A Walk to Remember is still one of my favorites.

So there you have it.  My list is small but once I get into the swing of things, I’m sure it will expand.  As I’m trying to simplify the clutter and objects in my house, I’m grateful all of the books listed above are available on the Kindle.  I do not have one myself, at the moment, but a little bird told me I might be getting one for Christmas.

Do you have any books you would like to recommend?  I’d love to hear them.  Be sure to drop them in the comments section.
