My Rest of the Year Reading List
There are less than 6 months left in the year (how?!) so I'm sharing what's on my reading list for the remainder of 2018!
I avoided this book for a while due to its kitchy title. However, I am bummed I stayed away this long because I am obsessed! The author has a no-nonsense way of telling us to get off your buns and make life happen. Lots of opportunities for journal and self reflection to help us figure it out on our own.
Apparently this is the hot book trend of the summer. I love a good fiction to mix it up with so I'm excited for this one. Also, it's a trilogy so that's super.
Author, Priest, and founder of Homeboy Industries (the largest gang-intervention program in the world) sheds light on his mission working with former gang members. He reminds us all that life should be filled with love and kindness and hopes to reinstate our willingness to love no matter what. I cannot wait to crack this one open.
Need to unblock your creative funk? Dive on into read. Written by the wonderful Elizabeth Gilbert, it hopes to give us a sweet kick in the pants to uncover what we love doing, what's holding us back from doing it, and encouraging us to just do it. I.can't.wait.
In his first novel, Love Does, author, attorney, and Honorary US Console, Bob Goff blew me away with the lessons along his journey of life and ability to embrace every experience by loving all. Amazon's description of this novel so perfectly describes its effort to teach us to "love people, even the difficult ones, without distinctions or limits."
I've had this book for a while. In fact, it was passed down to me from my mom and I just never got around to reading it. No better time then now, am I right? It's a first-person narrative that tells the story of Dinah, daughter of Jacob and sister of Joseph. (source: Wikipedia) The red tent was a mandatory hang out spot for ladies on their moon cycles and during birth - but it was so much more than that.
