This month's book choices for the Book of the Month Club had some tough decisions to pick from! I ended up choosing "The Sun is Also a Star" by Nicola Yoon. Goodreads gives this book 4.5 stars and NY Times also has a great review!
Here's the book blurb from Goodreads:
Natasha: I’m a girl who believes in science and facts. Not fate. Not destiny. Or dreams that will never come true. I’m definitely not the kind of girl who meets a cute boy on a crowded New York City street and falls in love with him. Not when my family is twelve hours away from being deported to Jamaica. Falling in love with him won’t be my story.
Daniel: I’ve always been the good son, the good student, living up to my parents’ high expectations. Never the poet. Or the dreamer. But when I see her, I forget about all that. Something about Natasha makes me think that fate has something much more extraordinary in store—for both of us.
The Universe: Every moment in our lives has brought us to this single moment. A million futures lie before us. Which one will come true?
I am kind of a romantic...so this little love story might be just what I need to warm up my holidays.
On a little bit more of a sad note, last month's book was Swing Time by Zadie Smith. I was really getting into the book! The characters are really so real. They feel like every day peope you really could meet on the street and become friends with. The story was deep and was just beginning to really spiral in regard to the relationship between the two main characters when guess what happened....
I spilled my lunch (which happened to be soup) all over in my backpack! I destroyed the book, my planner, and my pride all with one can of hearty chicken noodle soup! Luckily, the Book of the Month Club let's you purchase additional books for only $10.00 with your BOTM membership! So I can get my book back at another time. Still, it was a rough day and I can't give you a proper review of November's readings.
To end on a happy note and make this a positive sandwhich, I discovered a amazing site where you can get AMAZING STEAL deals on Ebooks! I have already got many books for FREE and Ive been browsing for 30 minutes and haven't found anything for over $4.00 yet! The site is free and you should probably check it out if you're a book worm! https://www.bookbub.com/home

I love to read! Education is such a powerful thing! I didn't know there were so many running books out there! I decided I would read 1 book a month and share it with my followers. I would love to hear about books that you have read that inspire you on your fitness journey. Share in the comments and don't forget to follow me on social media to know when a review is up and ready to read!
