Hello Book Lovers so I have a couple books on my radar this year and a lot of amazing suggestions from you all and I want to share them. Now as a gentle reminder, there is a reading challenge going on right now, its pretty simple log three books with me (send me a picture on Instagram or twitter or good old fashion email) between now and March. Come April I will announce the first winner. The winner will get a book and a gift card of your choice.
Three Women by Lisa Taddeo –
I heard about this book from my friend Karina who makes the best book recommendations, she could literally get me to read anything. Her book collection is amazing. This book is about a woman who documents the lives of three separate women and their amazing stories. But not like boring stories, the juicy kind. One of the women is having an affair on her husband, who has lost interest in her and she met someone who is well: blowing her back out sweetie. Say no more I wanna read this. Definitely add this book to your radar kids because this one is a banger.
Where the Crawdads sing by Delia Owens
Again this is another suggestion from a friend of mine, she insists that I would love it. It’s about a girl who is convicted of murder, I hear the writing is really good and the story is amazing. I think it might be Fiction but when a non-reader suggest something and they like it chances are its a good read. Reese Witherspoon was quoted saying she didn’t want the story to end. If you didn’t know, Reese is a big reader.
Atomic Habits by James Clear
I have heard good things about this book, it’s basically a guide in changing our lives and breaking bad habits and implementing better ones. It has gotten a lot of reviews and one of the book club members are currently reading it and have said nothing but positive things about it. So you know I started off 2020 on the wrong foot so I can’t wait to read this book and get my life back on track.
Never Split The Difference by Chris Voss
This book has been on my wish list for over a year and I somehow forgot to read it. A follower told me about this book on Instagram, it’s about negotiation from someone who worked in the government and negotiated for a living. I definitely think it’s a book anyone negotiating the corporate or entrepreneurial life should read. Hopefully I read this book this year and it doesn’t jus sit on my list for another year.
Sapiens by Yuval Noah Harari
Harari keeps doing it over and over with solid reads. I’m currently reading his book 21 Lessons For The 21st Century. Babes when I tell you that this book is amazing, I mean its amazing. I know I’m supposed to be telling you about Sapiens but I haven’t read that one yet. One very important point that Harari makes in 21 Lessons was the importance of A.I. aka Artificial Intelligence taking a lot more human jobs today, than ten years ago. Im not done reading but as always Harari makes you think. Sapiens is his first book and this guy does not let down, if you like to think pick up any one of his books.
Dodging Energy Vampires by Christiane Northrup
We will start with a quote from the book summary I found on Amazon: “Highly sensitive people—or empaths—see life through the eyes of compassion and caring. They were born that way. As a result, they carry a tremendous amount of inner light. But they’re also the favored prey of “vampires” who feed off empaths’ energy and disrupt their lives”. This book sounds like something I definitely need to read. It was suggested by one of my friends, who is a ball of energy, but have also had her own share of negative people and energy vampires in her life. So I added it to my list real quick.
Where’d You Go Bernadette by Maria Semple
Ok so I kind of cheated with this one, I really wanted to read this book but ended up watching the movie in theaters and was not disappointed. It’s an amazing story and the movie did not disappoint so I can only imagine how incredible the book would have been. Cate Blanchett is an amazing actress and she played Bernadette, a true creative genius who was making waves in the Architectural industry as a woman. Something happened and she stopped creating and was just surviving day to day with no hunger for life and was losing the connection to her workaholic husband. I haven’t seen a role that Cate hasn’t BODIED honestly. This book or movie is a must read/watch.
Seagul by Jonathan Livingston
This is a very easy read, not heavy at all. It’s similar to the alchemist where you have to be able to extract the lesson. It’s about a seagull who is trying to learn about life and flight. I’ve been told that this will inspire and motivate and I’ve already purchased it so I might read it this week.
Those are whats on my reading list so far. Of course. this list will be constantly monitored and updated and I will be adding more books as I learn about them. Are there any books you currently have on your radar? Tell me about them below. Toget the book club news letters you can sign up here.
