I started the New Year with some light reading. I generally read when I travel, but this since this month I was away on a family vacation; I deliberately took a break from everything to unwind!
I didn’t read as much as I wanted to, but I’m not complaining! 😊
So here goes, the list of books I read in January 2020:
The Girl with the Lower Back Tattoo
by Amy Schumer
Light • Funny • Relatable
The Emmy Award-winning comedian and actress Amy Schumer mines her past for stories about her teenage years, her family, relationships, and sex in this humorous autobiographical book. She shares experiences that have shaped her —a woman with the courage to bare her soul to stand up for what she believes in, all while making us laugh.
Kindle Edition available.
“Like literally, the final moments of life come to mind when I begin to love someone. I think, Will this dude push my wheelchair? And even scarier, Would I be willing to push his?”– Amy Schumer, The Girl with the Lower Back Tattoo
by Albert Camus
Smooth • Meaningful • Absurd
Through the story of an ordinary man unwittingly drawn into a senseless murder on an Algerian beach, Camus explored what he termed “the nakedness of man faced with the absurd.” First published in English in 1946; now in a new translation by Matthew Ward.
Audio Book available.
As if that blind rage had washed me clean, rid me of hope; for the first time, in that night alive with signs and stars, I opened myself to the gentle indifference of the world.– Albert Camus, The Stranger
I am thinking of experimenting with more audio books this year, I really enjoyed listening to ‘The Stranger’ in audio format and plan on picking another good one soon.
Happy Reading! ✌️
