Books:

  • Signs: The Secret Language of the Universe – such an incredibly uplifting read to kick off the new year. It made me feel more connected and optimistic about the future.
  • Talking to Strangers – I’ve been a HUGE Malcolm Gladwell fan since I first read The Tipping Point. This book is incredibly relevant in a time of great social and political divide.
  • Delayed Rays of a Star – a beautifully written historical fiction novel that shares the stories of three female pioneers in the film industry.
  • The 7 1/2 Deaths of Evelyn Hardcastle – this book was a trip! I’m a huge lover of classic mystery novels and this was unlike anything I’ve ever read before – a combination of Agatha Christie meets Groundhog Day meets time travel.
  • The Hero – a fascinating short novel that deep-dives into the etymology of the word, as well as what defines a hero across cultures and centuries.

Happy reading and watching, friends! I hope this provides you with lots of entertainment for cold, dreary January days.

XOXO
