This year I challenged myself to read 36 books before New Years Eve 2021. I’m not one for actually reading things. Reading with two kids running around the house is almost impossible. Instead I put on audiobooks and go about my business. I can’t wait to get through these books this year…

Here they are:


I’m Your Huckleberry : A Memior — Val Kilmer

  • Started — December 22, 2020
  • Finished — January 2, 2021

I’m a big fan of Val Kilmer and after recently seeing a picture of him looking ill, I wanted to see if an explanation was in this book. I found my answer and also found it filled with a lot of stories about Hollywood and gave a bit of insight on his life. Definitely an entertaining story to read about a familiar face from my childhood.


Flower Net — Lisa See

  • Started: January 2, 2021
  • Finished: January 6, 2021

First novel I’ve read by her. I think I saw somewhere that mystery isn’t her normal genre. Will try to read another of her books later this year to compare.


Madame Fourcade’s Secret War: The Daring Young Woman Who Led France’s Largest Spy Network Against Hitler — Lynne Olson

  • Started — January 6,2021
  • Finished — tbd

Coming soon…


The Jetsetters — Amanda Eyre Ward

  • Started: January 17, 2021
  • Finished: January 19, 2021

🏆Recommend by Reece Witherspoon Book Club🏆

This is the first book I’ve read suggested by the Reece Witherspoon Book Club. It was a fast read as you can tell from my start and finish dates. I took the time to actually read and didn’t listen to the audiobook which seems to be a very different experience.

This suggestion was from last year sometime and turned out to be a great summer beach type read. I’m a fan of a good romance novel or summer read, but was a little disappointed that this was a suggestion. I assumed this would be a little more hard hitting because it was a book club recommendation. Definitely not an Oprah Book Club type suggestion.

Not a lot of heavy thinking with this one but was entertaining. If you want to read something fun and imagine yourself on a cruise around parts you’ve never been to then definitely check this one out.


The Scent Keeper — Erica Bauermeister
