Gone Girl

Drop everything you are doing and read this book RIGHT NOW!

It’s about a woman who goes missing on her 5th wedding anniversary. Her husband is left clueless (well, not literally) and everyone suspects he murdered her. This book is the craziest mystery novel I’ve ever read and needless to say I couldn’t put it down. The character development (of two questionably insane people) is very well-written and well-thought out. The suspense is killer. And the thousands of questions you’ll have while reading will be well worth waiting for the answers as they come.

I’m picky about my books and I read this within a week. Fantastic novel.


Eat Pray Love

I know everybody loves this book and blah blah blah but there’s a REASON everyone loves it so much. And that’s because it’s a great book that can teach you a lot, especially if you’re able to relate to the main character in some way. If you know nothing about the plot, the main character is going through a divorce and trying to find herself again and figure out who she is outside of her marriage. Pretty relatable topic if you’ve ever been through a big break up, which I was going through when I read this. It made me feel a lot better in that a) I wasn’t alone, b) my situation could be much worse  and c) there are so many great experiences you can have when you’re newly single and need to spend time with you, and its so much better than wasting your days crying in your room.

I would tell anyone to read this book (well, any girl) whether she’s going through a break up or not. Chances are she has, or will at some point, and this story will dig a hole in your heart and nestle itself inside either way. It will teach you lessons, bring you a sense of adventure and make you want to do things on your own. Great read anytime anyplace any day of the year.  🙂

Stupid and Contagious

This book did a lot for me. It inspired my career path (PR), it made me realize I like funny books the best and it introduced me to new music. If you’re going to ask a lot from a book, this one will likely cater to your needs.

It’s about a girl who works in PR but gets fired by an asshole, and then has to work in a restaurant until she finds a new job. She gets a new neighbor in the process, who works for a failing record label and befriends him in a strange but adoring way. She also gets a dog, which she saves from the street. I won’t spoil the end, but she eventually gets back into PR and becomes a stronger person.

The hilarious author, Caprice Crane, is passionate about music, which is why she ties in so many song titles and artists throughout the book. If you look up all the songs she mentions, which I did, you end up with a pretty cool playlist from the 90s. You might also realize, like I did, that PR sounds like the coolest job ever. And that you should absolutely rescue a pet. And be a dick to people who deserve it. And never ever work in a restaurant.
