Endi’s Weekend Reading List #6

Hi guys. Welcome to another edition of the Weekend Reading List series. If you have missed any of the books I’ve recommended, please click on the links below.

Without further ado, here are the books that should form part of your reading list this weekend.

Endi’s Weekend Reading List #6

1. Harley & Rose by Carmen Jenner

Endi's Weekend Reading List #6

I loooved this book!! I cried while reading it. It was so touching, beautiful, and heartbreaking. I’ll just give a brief synopsis – no spoilers, I promise.

Harley and Rose have been friends since they were kids. Their families are very close, so it is not surprising that they spent a lot of time together. Rose has been in love with Harley for years, and had always dreamt that they would be each other’s firsts in more ways than one. Unfortunately, this didn’t work out, as life had other plans.

However, a botched wedding brings them back “together”, but will they remain together? You need to read it to find out.

2. I Can’t Make This Up: Life Lessons by Kevin Hart

Endi's Weekend Reading List #6

I haven’t read this book, but a friend recommended it. She hasn’t also read it but she said she has heard a lot of good stuff about the book.

Everybody, well, almost everybody knows who Kevin Hart is. So, this book is essentially a memoir. It talks about his birth (he was an unwanted child), to his crack head family. It’s a rag to riches kind of story. The book depicts a young man who had all the odds against him, yet still, he excelled.

He overcame all the challenges, and today, is one of the biggest comedian in the world, selling out stadiums. He could only have achieved all this through hard work and determination. Of course, talent played a major part in his success.

3. Don’t Close Your Eyes by Holly Seddon

Endi's Weekend Reading List #6

When I saw the synopsis, I immediately remembered the crime shows on the Crime and Investigation channel that my husband loves to watch. I haven’t read (cos thriller is not my thing), but it was recommended by a close friend.

Here is the synopsis as outlined in Goodreads:

Twin sisters Robin and Sarah haven’t spoken in years.

Robin can’t leave her house. A complete shut-in, she spends her days spying on her neighbors, subtly meddling in their lives. But she can’t keep her demons out forever. Someone from her past has returned, and is desperate to get inside.

Sarah can’t go home. Her husband has kicked her out, forcibly denying her access to their toddler. Sarah will do anything to get her daughter back, but she’s unraveling under the mounting pressure of concealing the dark secrets of her past. And her lies are catching up to her.

The novel takes readers back in time to witness the complex family dynamics that formed Robin and Sarah into the emotionally damaged, estranged young women they’ve become. As the gripping and intricate layers of their shared past are slowly peeled away, the shocks and twists will keep readers breathless long after the final page.


So, there you have it. I’m sorry the books weren’t a lot. I haven’t had the time to read a lot of novels. But if you go through my other posts on the Weekend Reading List series, I’m sure you’ll find some books to read.

Love,

Endi

PS: Please don’t forget to recommend the books you’ve read, or would love to read. I’ll put it so that others can have the opportunity to read them as well.

    If only reading culture is really in existence for the vast majority of us in the society especially we the youths, our exposure, compulsion, knowledge, understanding and even practice will be enhanced. When you talk of reading this days especially novels or memoirs people just walk by. Thats why no book signing or tour or book shows is been done in this country because all we do and like is music, movies, gossip, city springs etc. It’s good a thing your bringing this up but it’s also one thing 2 have people read it

    • Yes, I agree. I can only bring it up to encourage the reading culture. I hope people get read as they should.
