The Hitchhikers Guide to the Galaxy is an amazing read, its a comedy sci-fi. I wouldn’t say I am a die hard sci-fi fan but this book had me turning page after page even when my brain was telling me to go to sleep. Also Dracula is a classic and awesome read, a little heavy though, I could only read a few chapters at a time.

Seven Fallen Feathers…. it is a tragic story of seven Native Canadian children who lost their lives by suicide, and the book tells their stories. It is so insightful and was just incredible to read!

Watership Down is one of my favorites! 👍

A very good book I finished recently was The Wife by Meg Wolitzer. They made a movie starring Glenn Close about it, though I haven’t seen it yet. The book was wonderful though! Highly recommend!

Also recently read Michelle Obama’s autobiography which was very good.

Oh! And my favorite read of 2018 was Eleanor Oliphant is Completely Fine by Gail Honeyman. FANTASTIC!
