Since my last reading list post, I’ve picked up a few new books and rediscovered two old favorites! I’ve been loving the time I carve out to read, it never fails to take me to another place and time – and we all need that sometimes.
Here’s what’s on my book shelf right now.
The Woman in the Window | A.J. Finn
I just started reading this one, and I’m already nearly 100 pages in! I can’t stop. I picked it up because Stephen King was raving about it – and what do you know, he was right. This book is so well-written and terrifying at the same time. I don’t want it to end.
The Desire Map | Danielle LaPorte
I’ve talked about this book a lot, and if you’ve been here for a long, long time, you’ll remember when I first picked this up back in 2015. Since I’ve been going through tons of changes in my life lately, and in the next few months I will be going through even more, I recently powered through this book again.
This is not your average “goal setting/self-help/find yourself” books. I mean, it is but it also isn’t at the same time. It’s a bit too cute at times, but there’s absolutely zero fluff and there’s a wealth of actionable steps and tips and worksheets to fill out.
If you’re in the market for a book to help you get organized and realize your goals, get this. Seriously.
Sea of Strangers |Lang Leav
Ah, heartbreak is painful. But reading about heartbreak presented in beautiful prose, and being able to relate to it makes it all hurt a little bit less. I’m a sucker for words, I love them, I could look at them all day long and never grow tired. But the way Lang Leav strings her words together is different – and I can’t describe it, but I love it.
I finished this book in a day, and I want more and more and more.
What are your favorite prose/poetry books? (Preferably in the love/heartbreak department, but I’ll take any suggestions!)
Brave Enough | Cheryl Strayed
I keep this book on my nightstand and I come back to it often when I need words of encouragement or a good slap in the face. Cheryl is the author of Wild, and she’s been one of my favorites for a long time because of her bold way of living and saying what’s on her mind.
This is just a book of her quotes, but it’s a short pick-me-up when you need it!
What books should I read next? What are your favorites? ❤
