After a (much too long) hiatus, I recently started reading again in my spare time. It’s one of those habits that’s often neglected, but one that I think is worthwhile making an effort to pick back up.
Now that we’re all sequestered, what better time to curl up with a good book… or several for that matter! I finally dusted off the books on my shelf and am excited to give you my thoughts and recommendations!
What I Read:
One Day in December by Josie Silver
Romance novels are my all-time favorites, especially when they’re warm and lighthearted like this one. It’s about a girl’s fleeting moment of love at first sight and her determination to find the boy she locked eyes with, only to find out soon after that he started dating her best friend. It was an easy read but a sweet, wonderful story that I didn’t want to put down.
One More Thing by B.J. Novak
To all my The Office fans out there, you read the author’s name right! This book was written by none other than one of the show’s writers and executive producers, or as you might remember him, Ryan Howard. This book is an entertaining collection of short stories of all kinds; some will make you laugh, while others will really make you think, each with a notable moral at the end. I’d definitely recommend this book to anyone looking for a solid read!
Water: for Health, for Healing, for Life by F. Batmanghelidj, M.D.
This may seem like such a random recommendation, but trust me when I say this book is a necessity. It’s extremely informative and to some very eye-opening, as all the great findings are backed up by the author’s medical experience. Chances are, this book will benefit you more than you might think.
The Little Book of Self-Care by Adams Media
I’m not huge on self-help books at all, but I truly have enjoyed this one so far in increments over the last year, when I feel I need it. I crack it open when I am feeling productive or if I just want a quick pick me up. It can be very refreshing and I’m glad I have it on my shelf; especially during times like this!
What I Am Reading Next:
I just started The Happiness Advantage, which I’m loving so far, but I’m really itching to open Where’d You Go Bernadette, since I just bought it after wanting to for so long! After those, I’m eager to read Flourish, which would benefit anyone, but I think it will really speak to me since I have a degree in psychology and favor positive psychology specifically.
Do you have any book recommendations? I’m always eager to find new reads!
