Book Talk: January Reads + Two Books You Need to Read ASAP.

Losing track of time because of a good book is the wave for the rest of 2018 to forever. This has been my life since way back in the day when I could only kinda sorta read and barely create my own plot from the pictures, but a little reiteration never hurt nobody. If reading is a beloved hobby of yours like it is for me, you just might be interested in knowing what I'm reading each month. My goal is to read at least three to four books throughout the month, so let me just loop y'all in on what my literary world has consisted of for January. People ask me for book suggestions often, so I think this list is cool to start with if you're in need of a good book or two. I'll try my best to stay consistent with posting updates on my choices each month, so stay tuned!

 

A NEW EARTH BY ECKHART TOLLE

THE SURRENDER EXPERIMENT BY MICHAEL SINGER

STITCHES BY ANNE LAMOTT

JUST MERCY: A STORY OF JUSTICE AND REDEMPTION BY BRYAN STEVENSON

 

I started Just Mercy a few days ago and *flame emoji* whew. I'd been reading a lot of self-help type of books, so I think this was a great pick for me to shift gears for a second. 

In a previous post where I talked about what I was reading, I told y'all that fiction was my first love. It's still oh so very near and dear to me, but I've been exploring other genres, literally getting lost (a good, amazing, "where have you been all my life?!" type of lost) in the text. #LIT. Pun. Intended.

The first two books I mentioned are the books you need to read ASAP if you haven't already. If you're still working on Ego is The Enemy, that's perfectly fine-- just go ahead and secure these two in your amazon cart. I could go on and on about why you should read them, blah blah this that and the third, but I won't. I'll just say this: self-realization and true fulfillment. Take from those what you will and go read the books. (:

ALSO...

Let me fill y'all in on something pretty awesome. My friend Chasity and I decided to start a book club and The Surrender Experiment was the first book we covered! Together, we produced #TradingPages, a laid back, supportive community of wonderful souls always ready to dive into new reads. She's a law student, blogger and fellow book lover, so for us to come together and do this was perfect and LONG overdue. We both lead pretty busy lives (as I'm sure a lot of y'all do too), so this is definitely a no pressure type of situation. If you miss a book one month but still want to discuss it in the following months, don't hesitate to reach out to us so we can talk about it! We're both always open for literary discussion.

peace and blessings,
