What We’ve Been Reading

With all of the cold weather recently, the only thing I want to do is curl up with my heated blanket and read a great book. Is this just me or does the cold make everyone want to read? idk. Anyways, we have both been reading a ton in the past month, so I thought I let y’all know what we have been reading and share what we want to read next.

What We’ve Been Reading:

Man Repeller by Leandra Medine


We both actually listened to this book (she narrates it!) and we both loved it. It is so funny and relatable it had be laughing out loud in my car. Seriously, I probably looked like a crazy person. This should be on everyone’s list to read, especially if you love fashion (but it is good even if you don’t).

Furiously Happy by Jenny Lawson

This book is dubbed “a funny book about horrible things,” and it really is that. The book is all about the author’s struggle with mental health, but it is so so funny. It is weird and quirky, but I thoroughly enjoyed it.


Dare Me by Megan Abbott

This book is a thriller that is based around a high school cheer team. It has teen angst, friendship problems, and some pretty crazy plot twists. I enjoyed the book, but it isn’t my favorite on this list. Definitely check it out if you like thrillers though.

How to Murder Your Life by Cat Marnell

Riley listened to this one and has completely finished it, and I am very close to finishing it. This memoir is about Cat Marnell, who has worked at almost every major fashion magazine, and is a drug addict. It is extremely interesting learning about her crazy life. Her addiction paired with her glamorous life/job plus her hilarious writing style make this a must read.

What We’re Reading Next:

Unbelievable by Katy Tur

This book is a memoir about a journalist assigned to cover Donald Trump during the presidential campaign. The journalism student in me made me pick it up, and I am super excited to read it.

The Dirty Book Club by Lisi Harrison

This book is about a woman who moves to a small town with her husband, and doesn’t have many friends there. Her neighbor moves away and leaves her this invitation to join this book club. In the book club the women read and discuss erotic novels. Through joining the club, the main character makes all these friendships with the other women and she finds her place in the town. This book as amazing reviews so I can’t wait to check it out.

The Rules Do Not Apply by Ariel Levy

I feel like this past summer, everyone was reading this book. I don’t really know much about it, but I kinda want to go into it that way.

The Seven Husbands of Evelyn Hugo by Taylor Jenkins Reid

Again, I don’t know a whole lot about this book. It is about a famous actress who is now old  and she picks a random journalist to tell her whole life story (including her seven husbands).

The Polygamist’s Daughter by Anna LeBaron

This memoir is written by the daughter of the famous polygamist and murderer, Evril LeBaron. Her father was the leader of a cult of radical Mormonism and he killed anyone who tried to leave. She had over 50 siblings, and this book is about her escape from the cult when she was thirteen.


What books should we read after we finish these? Leave us some recommendations below! If you want to see what we think of these books, be sure to check out both of our goodreads pages! This is mine, and this is Riley’s. Thanks for reading y’all!

xoxo, Breana
