Usually once a season I like to write a blog post to share the books I’ve read recently. I always find recommendations and inspiration in other’s book lists.
So, without revealing any spoilers these are the books I picked up recently.
The Power — This is the book I’m currently reading, and loving. Obama recommended it. I would call it a female utopian novel set in modern times. The power starts with the teenage girls and spreads into the older women. Do the women take over? Are men pissed off? You’re going to have to read it to find out. (I highly recommend this book).
The Power of Habit — I’m also simultaneously reading this book, and it was the perfect read leading up to my 30 Day Morning Challenge. I thought it was going to talk about creating habits, but it’s really the science (?) behind habits. (Another one I recommend)
You are a Badass at Making Money — I love a good book about personal finance and money mindset and this one does not disappoint. If you’ve never worked through your mindset and attitude surrounding money, now is the time. I always find that stuff starts “happening” after I read these sorts of books. (Yup, recommend it).
The Artist’s Way — I only made it a few chapters into this book. I was curious because this is where a lot of people say morning pages originated from, but I guess if you already do them there’s not really anything new in this book. But if you’ve just started doing morning pages or are looking into them than this book might be good for you. (I give it a “meh”)
Girl Wash Your Face — This was one of those books that was OK but just really wasn’t speaking to me when I was reading it. And there are so many books out there waiting to be read that I didn’t want to waste my time feeling blah about this book. (A lot of people like it so don’t rely on my opinion).
We Should All Be Feminists — This was a quick read, but that’s not the only reason you should read it. It is an essay adapted from her TEDx Talk. (Go read it)
Red Clocks — This feels like a precursor to Handmaids Tale in that abortion is illegal in the US in this book. It’s told from several viewpoints and I really enjoyed it. (Another highly recommend)
Astrology 101 — This is a random one on this list, but a cute little book that’s quick to flip through. I love learning about Astrology, but it still feels a bit over my head. This book really breaks it up for you, but it’s one that you should buy rather than check out from the library. (Recommend)
A Darker Shade of Magic — This is the first book I read on the Libby app on our iPad. I was always a staunch “nothing but real books” sort of gal, but there is something so convenient about having books on an iPad. And it’s something I highly recommend for travel. But anyways this book was good. It’s about magic, about different parallel worlds and a magical person who can travel through them. (Recommend it)
