Currently Reading

Last Christmas I was lucky enough to receive a Kindle Paperwhite, and since then, I'm happy to say that I've been reading a lot more. When I was younger I used to be a huge reader (like, the kind of who reads two or three books per week), but when freshman year of high school hit I just started running out of time to read. However, having the Kindle has allowed me to bring a whole library around with me in one small, super-chic package. Here are the books that I've been into lately:



I love historical fiction novels, and if you do too, then I would definitely recommend this one. It's the story of Elizabeth Woodwille, a commoner in 1400's England who becomes queen by her beauty. Once on the throne, she has to navigate a world full of enemies and fight to keep her throne and her family safe. It's really well-written, and I definitely enjoyed it!


I bought this book because I thought it would be hilarious, and I wasn't disappointed. Amy Poehler's writing is so entertaining, and the whole book is filled with funny stories, experiences, and even a few rants. If you're looking for a light read, I would recommend that you give Yes, Please a try!


This was my favorite fiction read recently; it was such an amazing story! Song of Achilles is a retelling of the Greek myth of the Trojan War, but told from Patroclus's perspective and exploring his relationship with Achilles, the hero of the myth. I got so attached to the characters that I couldn't put it down!



Princess Diana is one of my favorite icons, and I find her whole life fascinating. Usually I'm not the biggest fan of biographies, but I found this one so interesting. It is essentially the written transcripts of tapes Diana sent to the author, talking about her life as the princess. I would definitely recommend it, especially if you're looking for a good nonfiction read.

That's all of the books I've been reading lately, what have you been enjoying?
