Books On My Nightstand

Hey everyone! I recently have been requesting lots of books from the library, so I'm reading more. Well, trying to, I'm the type of person that gets completely sucked into a book but lately I have only been reading on the train. Serious oops for not being able to focus on reading if I'm not on the train. 

These are the new books that are hanging out on my nightstand, waiting to be read:

After watching the documentary "Forks Over Knives," I decided that I had to pick up Whole: Rethinking the Science of Nutrition by Doctor T. Colin Campbell. This documentary deals with people changing their animal-based diets to plant-based diet for their health benefits. As you might have realized I'm a vegetarian. Not eating animals has made me feel so amazing! I have a new found energy and honestly don't feel sluggish  24/7 anymore. I would definitely recommend you to watch documentaries that deal with the food industry, I personally stopped eating meat after watching "Food, Inc."


 The other book I decided to pick up is Make Your Home Among Strangers by Jennine Capo Crucet. I recently stumbled across an article by The Guardian, which is appropriately called Fall 2015's best Latin American booksLast year I took a class on American Literature with a wonderful professor. This professor also offered a class on Latin Literature, which I sadly could not take. Ever since I have been trying to throw myself into books written by Latinos.

The Last book that I picked up and am totally loving at the moment is The Sound of Things Falling by Juan Gabriel Vasquez. I saw this book on Riverhead Books Instagram and decided I needed to read it after binge-watching Narcos. I'm half way done with the book and seriously can't put it down. Juan Gabriel Vasquez is Colombian and writes about life in Bogota after its troubled history as well as his mysterious friend Ricardo Laverde. I find this book fascinating because I am of Colombian heritage and have never read a book by a Colombian author. Yes, this sadly includes Gabriel Garcia Marquez. Talk about ridiculous! 

I will let you know my thoughts on all of these books once I read them. Until then keep your eyes out for my blog post on my recently read book The Life-Changing Magic of Tidying Up: The Japanese Art of Decluttering and Organizing by Marie Kondo book.
