Book Worm: Spring Edition
I’ve been so busy over the past few weeks that I haven’t had time to read each day. Consequently, my list of books to read is getting a little bit out of control. Seriously, my “to read” list currently takes up two full pages in my planner, so I thought it was time for another Book Worm post! Today I’m sharing my top reading recommendations for spring and an opportunity for you to get a FREE audiobook from Audible!
1. The Girl on The Train by Paula Hawkins
It seems like everyone is talking about this book. I’ve had at least four different people insist that I read this book, so I guess it’s a must-read for spring! Supposedly it’s a thriller along the lines of Gone Girl, but my friend swears it’s even better!
2. Is Everyone Hanging Out Without Me? (And Other Concerns) by Mindy Kaling
Mindy Kaling might as well be the voice of our generation. She’s one of the funniest people on earth, and the title alone makes this book a necessary addition to your reading list!
3. You by Caroline Kepnes
I am dying to read this book. Without giving away the plot, this book is written from the point-of-view of a stalker, and the story chronicles his interactions with the women that he’s stalking. I’ve heard that the narrator of the audiobook is absolutely fantastic, and I want to finish the story before the TV adaptation comes out!
4. Gummi Bears Should Not Be Organic: And Other Opinions I Can’t Back Up with Facts by Stefanie Wilder-Taylor
Stefanie Wilder-Taylor is such a funny comedian and author, and I’ve waiting for her latest book to come out for months. Even though I’m not a mom yet, her honest and hilarious parenting anecdotes never fail to make me laugh.
5. The Longest Ride by Nicholas Sparks
Yes, I am the girl who has to read every single Nicholas Sparks book. Don’t even pretend you’re not going to read it too before the movie comes out!
6. Wild: From Lost to Found on the Pacific Crest Trail by Cheryl Strayed
This book chronicles a woman’s emotional transformation as she hikes the Pacific Crest Trail. The movie has received critical praise, and the story seems right up my alley.
7. One More Thing: Stories and Other Stories by B.J. Novak
As a die-hard fan of The Office, I’m not sure why I haven’t read B.J. Novak’s collection of short stories yet. While he’ll always be Ryan from The Office to me, I can’t wait to listen to his hilarious thought on life in audiobook form.
8. Voyager by Diana Gabaldon
I am still stuck on Diana Gabaldon’s Outlander book series. I just finished the second book, Dragonfly in Amber, on my Audible app, and I’ve already downloaded Voyager, the third book. I’m dying to hear what happens to Claire and Jamie!
9. Paper Towns by John Green
John Green can do no wrong in my eyes. His books have the perfect mix of relatable humor and poignant moments, and I’ve never been disappointed with his work. After seeing the trailer of the Paper Towns film adaptation, I knew that I need to add this book to my reading list!
My schedule may be booked solid for the next two months, but thanks to Audible, AKA the busy book worm’s best friend, I’ll still be able to read a few new books! I simply head to Audible’s website to pick out a few new books, and they automatically download onto my iPhone’s Audible app. The whole process only takes a few minutes, and it allows me to have a full month’s worth of audiobooks on my phone at all times. I listen to my audiobooks during my daily commutes and while I’m doing chores around the house. I’m completely addicted!
