I know most of the country is under lock down, either state-mandated or by personal choice. Times are weird and confusing right now; with so much uncertainty it’s easy to become overwhelmed with all of the information being dumped into our laps. I’ve found that I need to physically put my phone away or turn on my favorite reality TV show to escape from constant news.
There is nowhere for any of us to go (unless you are an essential worker in which case I thank you a million times over for your service), so we all have an ample amount of time to read. I’ve thrown together some feel good books that I think we could all use in our lives during a time like this because let’s be honest, who else is tired of crying every day over our current state?? (oh, just me….?)
What are you reading in quarantine?! Share with me!
Lillian Boxfish Takes A Walk
Lillian Boxfish will become your new fictional best friend; might as well since you can’t see your real-life bestie!
Emma Straub has great “beach reads” with just the right amount of drama, love, and humor mixed in.
Want to get sucked into drama that isn’t your own (who even has drama right now when you literally can’t leave the house?)?
Do I even need to say anything about this? It’s by Michelle Obama – we could ALL use her words of inspiration, positivity, and hope right about now.
Another by Emma Straub, you can dream of the amazing vacation you’ll take once this all passes.

I’d Rather Be Reading
I’d actually rather be doing a million things right now but since we can’t, I’d definitely rather be reading.
