Books. They are wonderful creations. They suck you in the minute you open them and you are transported to a different world, and it seems as though all your worries melt away.

1. "The Girl He Used To Know" by Tracey Garvis Graves

The love story of a quiet book nerd and the guy determined to win her heart. This book comes out in April of this year and I already have it preordered from Amazon.

2. "The Binding" by Bridget Collins

This novel's description drew me in the minute I saw the cover, and then I turned it over to read the summary. Combing a love of books, small towns, and magic, I am excited to dive into this new book.

3. "The Universe of Us" by Lang Leav

Poetry is one of my favorite things to read, and Leav uses the wonders of the universe to capture the minds of his readers.

4. "The Hypnotist's Love Story: by Liane Moriarty

Set in a beach town, Moriarty spins a tale of stalking, love, and eccentric characters; my favorite combination for a good novel.

5. "Becoming" by Michelle Obama

This book. I have been dying to read this book since it came out. Michelle Obama has helped so many people and she is an amazing role model for all people. Through this book, she invites you into her world, and that is a world I'm ready to be sucked into.

This is just a short list of the books I plan to read during 2019. One of my goals for this year is to really get back in touch with my book-loving side. I have become too absorbed by my phone, and I want to be absorbed by different worlds in the binds of books.
