Christmas is around the corner and I’m sure many of you have purchased your gifts through Amazon during the Thanksgiving weekend. I sure did. There are a few people left on my list and are particularly difficult to shop for because I’m not too familiar with the types of gifts they enjoy receiving.
Hi beautiful ones! I’m working hard on my Goodreads challenge and I think I’m going to beat my “Read 24 Books in 2018” goal. This month I read 5 books & I’d love to share that with you.
Have you ever prayed to God that your mother leave your father? I have. Have you ever cried, begged, and pleaded with God that he either end your life or change your home situation? I have.
At the end of each year, I share the books that I had the pleasure of reading and then publish a list of books I hope to get my hands on in the upcoming year. My last post was about the books I read in 2017 & this is all about the ones I want to read in 2018.
As you can see, I’m a little obsessed with Brene Brown. My therapist recommended reading her, as she talks a lot about female empowerment and vulnerability. As I’m writing my second book, I really need that sort of encouragement. Aside from her, I hope to dabble in a lot of non-fiction and try to get into poetry. I normally really dislike poetry, just can’t get into it, but Sabrina Beniam popped onto my newsfeed with a wonderful reading of a poem about anxiety. So, of course, I had to add her book to my list when I found out she was published.
- The Power of Vulnerability, Brene Brown
- I Thought It Was Just Me, Brene Brown
- Daring Greatly, Brene Brown
- Braving the Wilderness, Brene Brown
- The Hate U Give, Angie Thomas
- Solo, Kwame Alexander
- Depression, and Other Magic Tricks, Sabrina Beniam
- The Sun and Her Flowers, Rupi Kaur
- Inferior: How Science Got Women Wrong—and the New Research That’s Rewriting the Story, Angela Saini
- Jane Austen at Home, Lucy Worsley
- Tears We Cannot Stop: A Sermon to White America
- We Were Eight Years in Power: An American Tragedy, Ta-Nehisi Coates
- Talking as Fast as I Can: From Gilmore Girls to Gilmore Girls, and Everything in Between, Lauren Graham
- Shaken, Kerry Connelly
- The Great Divorce, C.S. Lewis
I’d love to know what your 2018 reads are! Drop a comment and maybe I’ll add the book to my Goodreads account!
Every year, I join the Goodreads Reading Challenge – picking the number of books I’d like to read during the year. For 2017, I wanted to try and read 12 books. I am on book 25 now & I’d like to share them all with you. From Mara Wilson to Stormie Omartian, I stayed up late & surpassed my goal!
