Book Inspirations

I never liked reading books in my childhood because reading for pleasure still felt like homework or something that I was forced to do. After I graduated college I found the love of reading and even though I only read maybe 3-4 books a year (really only during summer or the winter) I want to increase that number significantly in 2017. It is really challenging for me to find the time especially during the work week to read. I would love to be the person who gets in a routine of reading for at least 30 mins before bed every day but I feel like I will never be that person. I look at words and numbers all day at work and when I come home from work the last thing I want to do is read more words and numbers. However, there are SO many great books out there that I want to start getting my hands on. I recently read You are a Bad Ass by Jen Sincero and loved it, read Girl on the Train last year, and Me Before You. Jodi Picoult is one of my favorite authors and love everything she writes so she is definitely top of the list.

  1. I loved All the Light We Cannot See! I’ll have to check the others out! I highly recommend any books by Elin Hilderbrand (start with The Rumor), Liane Moirty, or Colleen Hoover (November 9 or It Ends With Us are super good!). And The Girl in Cabin 10 by Ruth Ware!
