One of my goals for the year is to read one book a month. This checks the second book off my list, and I have a big stack waiting for me to check out! I need to spend less time watching Parks and Rec and more time reading. 🙂
A friend of mine gave me the book “How I Came to Sparkle Again” as a solid read that’s the right mix of entertaining and the right mix of intrigue. It’s a chick lit book and I love reading these type of books — I definitely don’t think they are literary markers of any sort, but they are entertaining and keep me turning the pages. Sometimes that’s all that matters.
“How I Came to Sparkle Again” is by Kaya McLaren. It follows the life of Jill Anthony after she walks in on her husband having an affair. Oddly enough, she lives in Austin when this happens and heads back to a ski town in Colorado to find herself… and figure out life again.
She crosses paths with Lisa, an old friend, who wants to change her standards to find the love of her life. And lastly, Cassie — a 10-year-old girl who is dealing with the death of her mother and trying to find happiness in life once again.
All three of them have different stories that I think we can all relate to on some level. And Kaya does an amazing job weaving them in together in a way that keeps you turning the pages and interested to find out what happens next.
If you’re looking for a fast, entertaining read that warms your heart, you definitely want to check out “How I Came to Sparkle Again.” I love reading these types of books because they check all the boxes and make me happy (once you get past the heartache in the books). So, if you’re looking for something to read —> definitely check this one out.
What are you reading right now? Do you like chick lit?
What’s next on your reading list? I’m always looking for ideas. 🙂
