I love to read but lately I am finding less time to read physical books and having more time with audiobooks. So I made a promise to myself to read more books in general. I am aiming high this year by saying that I am reading a 100 books for 2022.
In the spirit of my goal I decided to share some of the books that I am currently reading or that is on my to read pile:
Taste: My Life Through Food by Stanley Tucci: this is my current read. I am not much of reader of food theme books however this book was more than just recipes. It was a good blend of personal life stories and recipes which made it more entertaining than I thought it would be.
Olga dies dreaming: A Novel by Xochitl Gonzalez. When I look at various lists of books to read for 2022. This books was a constant staple of books to read for 2022. Plus the plot and book cover sold me on adding this to my to read list.
We Believe the Children: A Moral Panic in the 1980’s by Richard Beck.
I vaguely remembering living through this panic in the media but I never really research on the subject. The only in depth information I remember doing is watching that one episode of the original version of Unsolved Mysteries. There was one segment that discussed “Santanic Panic” and the effects of it. So excited to finally put this book on my list and learn about the origins, the chaos and the after effects of this movement.
The Chiffon Trenches: A Memoir by Andre Leon Talley. The amazing and impeccable person that was Andre Leon Talley was one of my forever Icons but I never knew much about his life story. I decided to do the audio version of this book because what better way to heard someone’s life story than hearing that actual person read it? It is like having a private conversation with a friend.
