Books I’m Currently Reading (And What I Think of Them So Far)- April 2021
April 28, 2021
After a very busy beginning of the year, I started to pick up books and read again. I had plans to read enough books to write a new book review post every week from May till the end of August, but I don’t think I’ll reach that milestone. Especially since some of the books I thought would be good turned out to not be something I wanted to review on my blog.
Even though my reading plans are not turning out as well as I thought they would, I wanted to talk about three books I picked up to read recently and what I think of them so far.
Emergency Contact by Mary H. K. Choi
I bought Emergency Contact over a year ago but was too busy to read it. I decided to sit down and read it. I made it through one chapter and I’m interested in it finishing it. It is a romance story, and the way it is told is interesting. I look forward to continuing to read it.
Joy at Work by Marie Kondo and Scott Soneshein
The book is about organization in the work place. I don’t think I need help organizing my work desk, (I actually need more room, but that’s for another post) but I still wanted to read it because it’s by Marie Kondo. As of the writing of this post, I’m on chapter 2 and so far it’s ok. Right now, I feel like it’s meant for others to read, but it’s still interesting enough for me to keep reading.
Vogue on Christian Dior
I bought this book a while ago because it was about Christian Dior and wasn’t as expensive as other books on Dior I considered buying at that time. I began reading it a while ago, but I put it down because I was too busy to finish it. I began to read it again this month with the intention of finishing it. The book is about Christian Dior’s life and fashion. It is also written using Vogue magazine’s reports on Dior’s collections when he was alive. So far the book is really good and an easy read with nice, full page photographs of Dior himself, fashions, and a few behind the scenes photographs of the creation of the collections.
