Books I Read This Week 2018 – 3

I read four books this week and none of them were amazing.

I picked up The Woman in the Window because nothing on my pile was inspiring me but I should have known better. I am just not into these types of books and I should quit reading them, it’s like I won’t learn.

I read Fire and Fury fast because I didn’t want to read on this topic for a long time. I didn’t think there was anything particularly eye opening in it and net net it was meh.

I tried reading Bernstein before and I have never been successful but Judgement Detox felt like a good topic. I’d say I am not super judgmental but I figured there’s always things I can learn about being more open minded, judging even less, etc. In the end, I think this book was halfway interesting. Her approach to life is just possibly too different than mine (at least in this moment in time) so her words don’t really resonate with me.

I’d had Secret Thoughts of Successful Women on my list a few times so I finally read it. It’s mostly about Impostor Syndrome and this, too, was way way way too long for what it was. I could have read a long, interesting article and it would have been much better.

Here’s to better books next week.

Books I Read This Week 2018 – 2

 

 

 

 

 

So I ended 2017 with 305 books, not bad.

I had Improvement on my library list and wasn’t sure I was going to like it but once I started reading it, I didn’t want to stop. So net-net good read, though not fantastic.

I’d checked out Britt-Marie Was Here at least six times from the library but was never in the mood. I finally read it and I love love loved it of course.

I ended the year with Food Freedom Forever because I’ve been following Hartwig on Instagram and her strength is inspiring to me. I’d never done a Whole30 before the book but I’ve done other similar things. I like the idea of eliminating mostly to pay closer attention to how food affects my body+mood+skin etc. So I am doing a Whole30 this January to test it out. We’ll see how it works.

I started 2018 with To All the Boys I’ve Loved Before because I’d never heard of it and apparently it’s being made into a movie in 2018 so I thought it would be fun to read it and it was so much fun that I read the rest of the series: P.S. I still love you  and Always and Forever, Lara Jean. I can’t say they were amazing, but they were like candy. Sweet. And since I am not having actual candy this month, I figured it was okay to substitute 🙂

An Appeal to the World was a super-quick read that I am glad I took a side tour for.

And finally The Music Shop was the first book of 2018 that I love love loved. I really like Rachel Joyce so I wasn’t surprised that her book would be amazing but since it was about a record shop, I wasn’t sure how I would like it. In the end, I loved it. So much heart.

Here’s to another week of wonderful reading.
