After I hit my 100 book mark, I definitely slowed down a little bit. I ended with a total of 9 books, and here are my thoughts on them:1.The Gift of Imperfection by Brene BrownI have heard rave reviews of this book for years. It did not disappoint! As a struggling perfectionist, I could relate to her message on many levels.
- A Man Called Ove by Fredrik Backman
I have started the first chapter of this book many times and this was my first time fully reading it. I will say that it starts off a bit slow and remains that way for most of the book. Somehow I still found myself interested and the ending to this novel brought me to tears. If you can get past the slow pacing of this book, it really is a beautiful story.
- Love Does by Bob Goff
I finally read this gem! Bob Goff has a way of communicating God’s heart towards us in a very real way. One of the best Christian books I have read in a long time!
- The Last Olympian by Rick Riordan
This series holds a special place in my heart. I grew up reading it out loud with my cousin Rebekah and it holds so many happy memories for me. I have read the Lightning thief at least 7 times but this is my first time reading the conclusion to this adventure tale. It was predictable but everything you could hope for to finish such a fun series.
- How To Win Friends And Influence People by Dale Carnegie
The title says it all. This book is human relations 101. Whether in business or in everyday life, I think this is important to read once in your life.
- Wishful Drinking by Carrie Fisher
Oh, Carrie Fisher. I love listening to her books on audio. I finished this one in a day, and loved every second of it. It is a fun and lighthearted book about Carrie’s life and career. Hearing her voice and dry humor always brings a smile to my face.
- Present Over Perfect by Shauna Niequist
This book gets me! It hands down makes it into my top 5 self help books. The author has the exact same personality type as I do, so I could really relate to everything she was saying. I can’t wait to go back and read it again so that I can fully absorb the helpful advice.
- Happier At Home by Gretchen Rubin
This book is written by the same author of “The Happiness Project”. While it was a decent and entertaining book, it felt like an exact repeat of her first.
- Miss Peregrine’s Home For Peculiar Children by Ransom Riggs
I truly wanted to like this! I am always up to try a new book series. The first few chapters had me hooked, but I didn’t really like the direction that the author decided to go. It wasn’t horrible, but I don’t see myself reading the second book. What have you been reading lately? What should I add to my book list?
