I’m 14 Books Behind and I Feel (not so) Fine

It’s true.

I’m 14 books behind on my Goodreads 2019 challenge and I don’t feel so good about that.

Last year I read 38 books! And the year before that, 55! I thought I was getting back into my groove but apparently, I’m not. And it’s not a nice feeling.

I am watching a record-breaking amount of television and neglecting my reading. Maybe I should leave for a week, go to a place without the internet and unplug. But that could only happen in an ideal world.

Sadly, I can’t do that so I’m here making a list of interesting books I might be inclined to pick up in the near future.

Catch and Kill: Lies, Spies, and a Conspiracy to Protect Predators

by Ronan Farrow

46650277. sy475

I know that as soon as my copy gets delivered to my house, I’ll stay up all night reading this.

I read the three excerpts in The New Yorker and it is UNBELIEVABLE. I hope this amazing book will help me get back into reading.

A Man Called Ove

by Fredrik Backman


This was part of my birthday gift from my mother! Money for books!

And I have only read chapter one that day I went to the beach in September. But I already found it entertaining, funny and I immediately identify with the main character’s grumpiness.

I feel like this is going to be a great story and I want to find time to read it.

Why I’m No Longer Talking to White People About Race

by Reni Eddo-Lodge


I have hears so many good things about this book and I am really looking forward to it.

I want to learn more, be informed and educated and so I thought reading this book was the perfect opportunity.

Fix Her Up

by Tessa Bailey


A chick-lit.

A highly predictable, cheesy and romantic book is exactly what I need for two reasons:

  1. They’re fun
  2. When I’m done with them, I feel the urge to read something else.

I don’t know what this book is about, but I feel like it’s gonna be fun.

How the Pro-Choice Movement Saved America: Freedom, Politics, and the War on Sex

by Cristina Page


Jameela Jamil always says we’re feminists in progress and so I try to learn as much as I can about the movement, its history and the opposition.

The Pro-Life Movement’s attacks on women’s reproductive rights are abysmal and I really want to learn more about this topic.

Hopefully, I’ll get inspired to start reading again!

What books are you planning on reading? And do you have any recommendations for me?
