It's been busy so I didn't have much time to read but here are a couple I really enjoyed.

The Pull of the Stars by Emma Donoghue
This was a beautiful book  that actually mirrors a lot of what life is like for us in 2020 with the pandemic.  A nurse is working at an understaffed hospital in Ireland and meets some people that change her life very much.  This book is a special read this year and reminds us to find the light in any darkness. 
His and Hers by Alice Feeney
Twists and turns and lies when something dangerous happens and of course there are two sides to each story but someone isn't telling the truth and you have to figure out who.  This was a book that I could NOT put down. 
Nineteen Minutes by Jodi Picoult
This book was amazing and I loved how long it was. There is so much in here.  Basically, a small town is rocked by a school shooting but what's more is how those most affected by it all intersect with their past and present.  I really enjoyed this book and now I want to read more books by Jodi!

Butter Side Up  by Jane Enright
Wow, talk about an inspirational but REAL book.  Jane tells us how she survived the worst year of her life which included her husband's traumatic brain injury and losing her best girlfriend.  She doesn't make it fluffy and rainbows, she makes it real and relatable. I could really relate to many parts of this book because I have been able to overcome and move forward after many unfortunate things in my life.  This book is a must read!

Oliver by Steven J. Carino
What an amazing TRUE STORY! This resonated with me a lot because of my experience when Pixie was stolen.  It's about when the author, Steven, had his dog stolen from his car.  His dog was his everything and definitely his rock so this was horrible for Steven.  Miracles do happen of course, even in real life, so there's a happy reunion.  But what Steven went through to try to find Oliver had so many puzzle pieces involved with people from all over!  It's a great life lesson book and remember, it's a true story.  I was captivated and could not put this book down.  I felt everything as the Steven describes it and knowing it has a good outcome, made me even more uplifted as I read it.  If you're a dog lover, you'll love this book!
Sorry that's all I read this month guys but 2020 has kicked my butt in so many ways.  Here's to reading more in 2021!
