Happy National Book Lovers Day!
“Books are the purest form of escapism. They can take you to any time, place, or culture. In honor of National Book Lovers Day August 9, we put away our smartphones, pull out a good book and simply read. (Well, an audiobook will suffice too.) From clay tablets to today’s eBooks, literature has played a crucial role in preserving cultures, educating the masses, and storytelling. Thanks to Johannes Gutenberg’s 15th-century printing press, anyone, not just royalty, monks or landed gentry, could read and own books. But, alas, there was no overnight shipping. Today, join a book club or re-read a favorite novel because National Book Lovers Day rocks!” -National Today
Here are some of Abby’s Favorite Reads of 2022!
ANYTHING by Colleen Hoover
I discovered Colleen Hoover this year and after reading one of her books, Verity,…I read 4 others! Her style is murder mystery and romance. -Abby
There’s a Class Mom series of comedic fiction by Laurie Gelmen. Maurie writes these series from the perspective of a Mom about parenting. These are super relatable and so funny! This was a quick series for me because I just couldn’t put them down. -Abby
Nicholas Sparks is ALWAYS a great romance…my all time favorite being The Notebook! This year I’ve read The Wish & The Rescue and loved them both! -Abby
Local Woman Missing was a great one I read recently. I’m really branching out lately from my usual romance to the thrillers. I’m really branching out lately from my usual romance to the thrillers. This one was great and I gave it 5 stars!
I’ve got many more recommendations so just reach out if you are looking for something good to read! My goal was to read 27 books this year, about 1 every two weeks. But I’ve currently finished 16, so right on schedule!
