A BOOK TO MOTIVATE YOU:
This book has been an actual game changer for me. I have always despised mornings. As in, I feel nauseated if I get up while it’s still dark outside. This book somehow had the ability to shift my mind set about the early morning hours of the day. It has not only made me realize that I actually have more time each day than I thought, but it’s also given me a fresh perspective on the kind of time I should be investing in myself to benefit those around me. It’s refreshing, it’s motivating, and it seriously has the potential to help you change even the most frustrating, stubborn parts of your life. Yes, it’s that good.
A BOOK TO MAKE YOU LAUGH:

Say what you want about her skits on SNL. I admire Tina Fey for much more than that. She is a feisty person that has worked very hard to get where she is. She’s confident, she’s smart, and she’s hilarious. I laughed out loud numerous times throughout this book. So much so that I actually left bookmarks on particularly comical parts so that I could read them aloud to my husband later. Reading this book will certainly make you laugh, and it’ll also make you think about where you are in your life, and how much potential you really have.
A BOOK TO MAKE YOU THINK:
Whether or not you are introverted (which I certainly am) this is an excellent read. As an introvert, this book made me feel understood. It shed light on areas of my life (even since childhood) that I’ve never really examined as it pertains to my personality and how I naturally interact with the world. It provides insight into how different personality types function in our society. This book has reminded me to utilize the strengths that I do possess, rather than trying to conform to what kind of person others think I should be. I’d say that’s an important reminder, no matter where you fall on the personality spectrum.
A BOOK TO READ UNDER A BLANKET WHILE IT’S RAINING, WITH A CUP OF COFFEE:
I absolutely could not put this book down. It’s a true story about two college friends that take a trip to communist China in the 1980’s. I really don’t want to give away too much of the book, but I will say that you will not be disappointed by the incredibly fascinating experience of these two women.
If you are like me and feel like it’s impossible to find time to sit down and read, try a free-trial of Audible. If you decide you like it, the monthly fee gets you a download of your choice. It has been such a gift to me to be able to listen to books in the car on my way to work, on my lunch break, and while I’m prepping dinner during nap time. It’s one type of multitasking that I actually enjoy!
