Five Book Suggestions for Quarantine


Anyone else have reading on their to do list during quarantine? I finished “Little Fires Everywhere” last week and am currently breezing through “Love at First Like.” I’ve really enjoyed a little extra time during the day to read a few pages and especially love reading before bed.

We still have plenty of time during quarantine to knock out a book or two, so I thought I’d share a few suggestions in case you’re looking for a good read during this downtime. You can find great summaries searching the titles online, so here I’ve linked the books and am just sharing why I liked each. Each is pretty different from the others, so hopefully there’s a little something for everyone. These are all books I’ve read already, and I shared a few books on my to-read list below the suggestions!

The Woman in the Window — This was one of my favorite books I read last summer! It’s a bit of a thriller and kept me turning the pages faster and faster as the book progressed. The ending was definitely a twist, and it’s coming out as a movie starring Amy Adams soon.

Playing with Matches — While none of us are really on vacation right now, this book is a good beach read. It’s lighthearted and very chick flicky. I read the entire book on a flight to California last spring, so definitely an easy and fun novel.

American Wife — If you’re into historical fiction or American history, definitely check this one out. The story is based off former first lady Barbra Bush and her life. This is a bit of a longer book, but I enjoy American history and found it really interesting.

Crazy Rich Asians — I saw the movie before reading the book, but absolutely loved the book when I read it. It’s a bit different than the movie, but still kept me laughing throughout the entire novel. The novel is part of a trilogy, and I highly recommend the sequels as well!

Whisper Network — A review I read before reading said it was like a crossover between “Big Little Lies” and the movie “Working Girl,” and I couldn’t think of a better description. A little bit mystery, a little bit office drama and a little 21st Century girl power. Another book that kept me on the edge of my seat until the end!

As for what’s currently on my to-read list…
