Latest Book Recommendations
At the end of last year I did a post about some of my recently read books. Since then my interest in new books has only increased and I have doubled down on my reading. I wanted to share a few books that I have picked up recently, what I've liked about them and what you can expect by reading each one!
The Breakdown by B.A. Paris : I got through this book in a weekend since I could not put it down. It is in a similar vein to the Girl on the Train in that you can't quite trust the narrator or her version of events. A great thriller to keep you hooked on a rainy day.
The Lying Game by Ruth War : I've read a couple of Ruth Ware's books now (The Woman in Cabin 10, In a Dark, Dark Wood) and this one was up there in the level of suspense she brought to the story. At times you kind of hate the main characters but you never stop rooting for them.
You Are A Badass: How to Stop Doubting Your Greatness and Start Living an Awesome Life by Jen Sincero : I first read Jen's other book, You Are A Badass At Making Money and really enjoyed her frank and straightforward style. I then borrowed You Are A Badass from the library and liked it even more. This book is a great motivator for anyone looking to make some changes in their life, either personal, professional or relational. Definitely a worthy read.
The One Thing by Gary Keller : This is a great read for anyone who has a lot on their plate (pretty much everyone) and who is looking for get more done (so all of us). One part theory and the other part practice, this book gives actionable advice on how to make the most of your time, have less stress and actually achieve more.
A Side Note on Reading... While I have been a fan Audible for a few years now and still get an audiobook a month. I also love going to Barnes and Noble and looking for a new hardback book to bring home with me. However with my avid readership I decided to join the New York Public Library to be greener and save some money in the process. While joining the library seems like such a quaint notion, it really has been a great way to read books on the cheap and explore topics and titles that I am interested in without needing to commit to a purchase. Sometimes I will just go to the library, wander around and see if anything catches my eye. Organic vegan cooking? The psychology of decision-making? The shifting retail landscape? I'm intrigued. With the library I can get the book, see if I like it and if not there's nothing lost. Call me a nerd, but I definitely recommend giving your local library a try!
