I made a new years resolution to read one book a month. It doesn’t sound like a lot, but since I work a full time job its a start. I love sharing my favorite books with other people and later discussing how we felt. I have developed an informal book club with my friends and family. It makes reading different books a little more enjoyable.

My Current Favorite Books
If you’re someone that can remove yourself from reality, then you will love this book. The book follows Shadow around America as he encounters different GODS. You grow to understand how the Gods came to be and their journey once they came to America. After you’ve read the book, make sure to watch the show on STARZ. It’s not too far off from the book.
Mysteries have become my favorite genre. It gives me the suspense I need to make me continue to turn the pages. This book follows a moms journey to find her missing son. The twists and turns make this book extremely addictive.
I’ve never been the type to read self-help or motivational books, but this book changed that for me. It not a typical “look in the mirror and tell yourself your beautiful”self-help book. It’s raw and honest. If you’re sensitive to foul language and raw honesty, then this isn’t the book for you. This book is always in the back of my mind when I feel myself getting upset about small things. It was life-changing for me.
What can’t Issa Rae do? I had to read her book after becoming addicted to Insecure. This book covers her life while also giving life lessons. It’s a fantastic read.
This is the modern-day Cinderella story. Tiffany Haddish talks about her journey from foster care to a superstar. She talks about the good, the bad, and the ugly while giving some comedic relief. This book is hilarious.
I love finding new books and authors of all genres. What are your favorite books of 2018? Leave your recommendations below.
