Monday’s are usually less than magical for me but I decided to start this post to add a bit of magic to my Monday and your Monday’s as well! There are so many books out there that have added so much comfort in my life and I think comfort is what we all need on difficult Mondays!
Here are my top three magical reads to lift those dreaded Monday blues!
1…Analee, in Real Life
I have already added this book to a previous Three Magical Reads post but I added it before I finished reading it and now that I finished I can officially put this book into my magical reads category! As a Cuban-American woman, I have never been represented in a YA contemporary before and this book has a main character named Analee who is Cuban-American! This book really filled me with so much nostalgia of how it was like to grow up as a very awkward teenager in a Cuban-American family. This book gave me the To All the Boys I’ve Loved Before feels when it came to the romance. Although one of the things that I really loved most about the book is seeing the growth of Analee and how she learns to love herself and feel more comfortable in her own skin.
2…Girl, Wash Your Face
Honestly, I probably have this book in almost every book list! When I need a pick me up this book is my go-to when I feel discouraged and insecure. Rachel Hollis is like the girlfriend you always wanted that reminds you that you are not alone in the struggle and pushes you to keep going no matter what! If you’re looking for a new Oprah in your life Rachel Hollis will be the answer to your prayers!
3…The Thorn Necklace
If you have read my posts for a while now you will know that Francesca Lia Block is my favorite author of all time. She wrote a book that is a writing guide and memoir all packed into one! This is the year that I have been working on my novel and I have been using the outline guides for this book on a daily basis! This author has always been an inspiration for me and her writing memoir has been everything to my life! Read my gushing and fangirly review of this book here.
I would love to read your comments and chat about your three magical reads on a Monday! We need to work together to get rid of those Monday blues and books are the perfect antidote against Mondays!
