What I'm reading

It was in my early twenties when I set a goal of reading at least 1 book per month. A very low bar, but even so, couldn't keep up once I became a working mom. Not a mom, because when I was breastfeeding Cristian, was reading a lot while he was attached to me.

I used to write down the books I finished but haven't done that for years now. You know how I am about keeping my memories. Decided to fix this and keep the list open for future updates.

My favourite reads in 2017:

Man's search for meaning, Viktor Frankel; everybody recommends it and it is as touching as expected
The Course of Love, Alain de Botton
The Marriage Plot, Jeffrey Eugenides
How to Fall in Love, Cecelia Ahern; I can't remember the last time I read a romance and this was really good.
The Catcher in the Rye, J. D. Salinger; I love coming of age genre
The Book of Joy: Lasting Happiness in a Changing World, Dalai Lama, Desmond Tutu, Douglas Carlton Abrams; not finished yet because it is so dense and profound for me.

In 2018:

Thanks for the memories, Cecelia Ahern- not as appealing to me as "How to fall in love", but I managed to finish it
The one plus one, Jojo Moyes (Un barbat si o femeie)
Origin, Dan Brown
One hundred names, Cecelia Ahern
The Power of Moments, Chip Heath and Dan Heath - read in progress
To be continued...

So many books, so little time. What are you reading these days?
