Mary’s January Reading List

I love a good read. Before I had my son I used to easily read 5-10 books a month. But now, I’m lucky if I get to finish one every couple of months or so. As much as I love books, I have a small apartment and the clutter is killing me.  Luckily now that I’ve bought a new Kobo e-reader, I can take dozens or more books with me!

One of my new years’ resolutions is to read more. Starting now, I will be posting my reading list every month. Kinda like “Mary’s Bookclub” or something. Feel free to tag along, read with me, and comment below with your recommendations!

These are the last few books to catch my attention this winter. Enjoy!

Her Pretty Face

Can people ever change? And even if they can, is it possible to forgive the past? That’s the question that author Robyn Harding asks in her latest book Her Pretty Face.

full of suspense and twists, it’s hard not to become emotionally invested.

This book is a delightful and juicy read. The characters are intriguing and the book is easy to get into. But be careful, in this world. Nothing is what it seems.


When Life Gives You Lululemons

One of my favourite books is The Devil Wears Prada – Lauren Weisberger is witty, and this book is such an easy read. When Life Gives you Lululemons is a continuation of that story, but focuses more on Emily – Miranda’s former assistant turned celebrity stylist. If you enjoyed the first book, (or the movie) you’re guaranteed to enjoy this one.

What is Hip? The Life and Times of The Tragically Hip

I love The Tragically Hip – hands down on the of the best Canadian bands ever. Marc Shapiro does a great job of filling the gaps of the 30-odd years of the band’s history as well as being respectful of their legacy. You really aren’t gonna find juicy gossip or scandal here – but the story of a few Canadian boys who wanted to play music and found themselves a heck of a front man in the late Gord Downie. This book is a must-read for any Hip fan and I highly recommend it.
