If there is one thing that all of this lockdown mess has given us, it is time to read. This is a perfect opportunity to catch up on that reading list and even save some money. While others are doing online shopping and spending money frivolously, you can be responsible and buy some inexpensive books and expand your mind.
If you are looking for some possible book choices, I can help. Here are my top 8 book choices for a quarantine lockdown.
- The Great Influenza
This is a non fiction work that details the story of the 1918 Spanish Flu. A good and relevant read in these times.
- Camino Winds
From the mind of John Grisham comes another winner. His books are a guilty pleasure of mine and while they may not be as sophisticated as some, they are real page turners. In this novel, a writer of thriller novels is found dead after a hurricane which makes for the perfect cover for a murder.
- Normal People
This is a story that tells what it feels like to be young and in love. It is highly aclaimed and is even now a Hulu series.
This is the rather new autobiography of Michelle Obama. It is a fascinating read and you will have a hard time putting it down.
- If It Bleeds
I love thrillers and Stephen King is one of the masters of the genre. With this one, you get 4 short novellas that will keep you up at night reading. Of course, you might be better served trying to get through them during the day.
- Where The Crawdads Sing
If you are into murder mysteries, you need to check out this one from Delia Owens. All of the suspense wrapped up in a coming of age story. A must read.
- The Rural Diaries
An ex actress tells her story of leaving Hollywood for a rural life.
- All Adults Here
A book that highlights the things that we carry with us from our past. Things that we did not even know affected us.
