Book Suggestions! for when you're stuck inside….
If you’re anything like me, being told to stay indoors is not exactly the worst news in the world. I’m quite the home body. It’s become more and more of a regularity for me the older I get. I love a good Friday night in. (Wine and cats babay!) For some people though, this is a nightmare. Some people are social butterflies and need to be out and about. So how do we keep our brains occupied and engaged as we practice social distancing? Well there are several ways, but I’m going to tell you about my favorite way…READING.
As you already know if you read my blog or follow my YouTube, I am a huge book nerd. I admit it. I lerrrrve to read. In my opinion, the best books to read when you’re stuck inside are really gripping novels, fictional stories filled with rich character arcs…..and murder mysteries. So those will be the bread and butter of books I suggest. Let’s get into it.
