February Book Club
Last month, I read Jackie After O. It was very interesting to learn a lot of new things that I never knew about the Kennedys.
Also, this year I am trying to read an average of 1 book a week! So, along with Jackie After O, I also read Park Lane by Frances Osborne, The Marriage Plot by Jeffery Eugenides, Living History by Hillary Rodham Clinton, and reread Romeo and Juliet. I really recommend The Marriage Plot- probably my favorite of the bunch!
This month, because it's near Valentine's Day and I want to keep reading more nonfiction, I chose Mirroring People by Marco Iacoboni. It's written by a neuroscientist who researched how the brain functions, specifically the mirror neurons that allow us to understand others. It's very far out of my usual reads, so I'm really looking forward to reading this!
