November Reading List

 It just hit me that  when I put together my ‘December Reading List’ it will be 2021. That is one thought that definitely sparks joy within my heart! I know we are supposed to savor every moment of life, but 2020 is a year I will be more than happy to wave farewell to! 

I would love to hear what everyone’s favorite 2020 reads! Leave a comment or email me and let me know!

The Giver of the Stars, by Jojo Moyes

I few years ago I read ‘Me Before You’ and I know so many people loved that book, but I was so emotionally invested in the storyline and I was honestly disappointed in how the story ended and have been a little hesitant to read another of her books. I have heard great things about this book and decided to give Moyes another go and this book honestly converted me back to a Jojo Moyes reader. 


It has such a great narrative and such a strong storyline, I honestly cannot recommend this book enough. It’s a celebration of strong women, knowledge, friendship, and love. 


One Day in December, by Josie Silver

I have been meaning to read this book for years, and it was such a sweet Christmas story, that wove together friendship, love, family, and unexpected obstacles and sacrifices that must be made in life sometimes. It takes you through the lows and highs of life and is definitely a holiday must read!


Christmas in Vermont, by Anita Hughes 

This book is so perfectly Christmas trapped in between pages; but how could it be anything but with a title like ‘Christmas in Vermont’. 


Emma wonders into a pawn shop on Christmas Eve to sell a bracelet gifted to her by her current ex-boyfriend, and walks out with the watch she gave her college sweetheart. Once her best friend hears the stores she believes it is fate, does a little research, and books Emma a room at the same bed and breakfast where her old college boyfriend is staying for the holidays…


The Light We Lost, by Jill Santopolo

The Light We Lost is such a tragic love story and I honestly could not stop turning the pages once I started. Symbolism and meaning is found in every corner of this books and Santopolo did such a wonderful job a weaving the lives of three different people together


All the Ugly and Wonderful Thing, by Bryn Greenwood

I honestly have so many mixed emotions about this book. The main character’s life was an uphill climb, even at a young age. Wavy had a drug dealer for a father, a mother who was always too consumed with her own emotional struggles to be a proper parent, a little brother she become response for, and a man in her life she loved from a young age, but was entire too old for her. 


A powerful novel that is unforgettable 


One Imperfect Christmas, by Myra Johnson

If the Hallmark channel wrote books, this would definitely be one. A sick mother, a daughter who can’t shake her guilt, and a granddaughter who is counting on a Christmas miracle to bring her family back together.
