2 Books I Finished Recently


In 2023, I set a goal to finish one book per week.I’m aiming to listen to 30 minutes of an audiobook per day (while cooking, cleaning, and/or driving) and read 10 minutes of a book. By doing this, I hope to fairly easily be able to finish one book per week.

I kind of fell off this plan for the past two months while I launched my own book… but I’m excited to get back to a lot more reading in the coming weeks and months — and we’ll see if I can make up for my reading hiatus and still end the year finishing 52 books!

Book #5: Carnegie’s Maid

This was a quiet but engaging story. As in, it didn’t feel like there were all these crazy subplots happening or that the novel took a bunch of twists and turns, but the simple story drew me in.

For some reason, it reminded me of The Last Bookshop in London. It was an uncomplicated storyline and yet it kept me listening and made me think.

It’s a historical fiction book that tries to answer the question of who could have inspired the philanthropist, Andrew Carnegie. I loved learning more about this time period in history and also thinking what it would be like to be a maid. I thought it was fascinating to hear the conversations the maids and house staff had among one another and how they had such insider information.

It was my first time to listen to/read a book by this author and I immediately went and put some of her other titles on hold.

Verdict: 4 stars
