2. I Hope You Stay by Courtney Peppernell (The best poetry book I've read so far)

3. Skinny Bitch by Rory Freedman (An oldie but a goodie)

Don't lose hope. Don't be disheartened. Be thankful each day that you are alive. Do your best one day at a time and don't plan too far ahead. Don't be too happy too else you'll weep. Take care of your health. If you're unhealthy, money means nothing.

Top 5 Books of 2019


It's that time of the year again where I select my top 5 books of the year. This year I have read 95 book!  The most number of books I have read in my life. It's pretty amazing. I enjoyed a lot of poetry this year and I wonder how that will change in 2020. But without further a do,  here are my top 5 books of 2019.

1. Becoming by Michelle Obama (Hands down the best book I've read this year. What strike me the most is how raw and honest she is about how she feels to be on the spotlight, on finding her place, of being a woman along side her husband. Highly recommend this to everyone.)

2. Before We Were Strangers by Renee Carlino (Beautifully written and it has all the feels I needed in a book. I remember just enjoying this and I can't put it down. It was that good. Worth a reread.)

3. Please Don't Go Before I Get Better by Madisen Kuhn (A poetry written by a young lady that is so raw and real.)

4. The Boy, The Mole, The Fox and The Horse by Charlie Mackesy (Everyone should read this! It's a quick read but it's magical and it makes you think about life too.)

5. Unfiltered by Lily Collins (I'm surprise by how much I enjoy this book. Perhaps because I can relate to her a lot and her book resonates with me.)
