Current Book List

Crawling into bed with a good book at the end of the day is so relaxing to me. I don’t have ample time these days, but even squeezing in ten minutes gives me so much joy! I like to alternate between Self-Help type books, like Grace Not Perfection VS suspenseful thriller type books, like Gone Girl.

I’m just finishing up Good Girl and am on the hunt for my next book! I wanted to share my list to maybe inspire you all to grab a new read and to also hear about your recent reads! The first two books are in the “self help” category and the following two are in the suspense/thriller category. Enjoy!

Present over Perfection

presentoverperfect

A few years ago, I found myself exhausted and isolated, my soul and body sick. I was tired of being tired, burned out on busy. And, it seemed almost everyone I talked with was in the same boat: longing for connection, meaning, depth, but settling for busy.
I am a wife, mother, daughter, sister, friend, neighbor, writer, and I know all too well that settling feeling. But over the course of the last few years, I’ve learned a way to live, marked by grace, love, rest, and play. And it’s changing everything.
Present Over Perfect is an invitation to this journey that changed my life. I’ll walk this path with you, a path away from frantic pushing and proving, and toward your essential self, the one you were created to be before you began proving and earning for your worth.” From Amazon

Chasing Slow

In Chasing Slow, Erin turns away from fast and fame and frenzy. Follow along as she blazes the trail toward a new-fashioned lifestyle—one that will refresh your perspective, renew your priorities, and shift your focus to the journey that matters most. Through a series of steep climbs—her husband’s  brain tumor, bankruptcy, family loss, and public criticism—Erin learns just how much strength it takes to surrender it all, and to veer right into grace.
Life’s answers are not always hidden where they seem. It’s time to venture off the beaten path to see that we’ve already been given everything we need. We’ve already arrived.”- From Amazon

The Couple Next Door

Anne and Marco Conti seem to have it all—a loving relationship, a wonderful home, and their beautiful baby, Cora. But one night when they are at a dinner party next door, a terrible crime is committed. Suspicion immediately focuses on the parents. But the truth is a much more complicated story. Inside the curtained house, an unsettling account of what actually happened unfolds. Detective Rasbach knows that the panicked couple is hiding something. Both Anne and Marco  soon discover that the other is keeping secrets, secrets they’ve kept for years.” From Amazon

Girl on the Train

(yes I know I’m WAY late to the party on this one).

EVERY DAY THE SAME
Rachel takes the same commuter train every morning and night. Every day she rattles down the track, flashes past a stretch of cozy suburban homes, and stops at the signal that allows her to daily watch the same couple breakfasting on their deck. She’s even started to feel like she knows them. Jess and Jason, she calls them. Their life—as she sees it—is perfect. Not unlike the life she recently lost.
UNTIL TODAY
And then she sees something shocking. It’s only a minute until the train moves on, but it’s enough. Now everything’s changed. Unable to keep it to herself, Rachel goes to the police. But is she really as unreliable as they say? Soon she is deeply entangled not only in the investigation but in the lives of everyone involved. Has she done more harm than good? From Amazon

Catching Up

Whew, it’s been awhile.  I can’t say I’ve been away doing anything too different from normal, but I just haven’t felt super inspired to write…so I took a little break!

I made a new years resolution this year to spend a little less time on social media.  I just started to feel like I should be using my free time doing something better than always playing on my phone.

As luck would have it, we live across the street from a library, so after living in our place for 5 months I finally got a library card. Yay!

That’s my partial excuse as to why I’ve been away…..I’ve read 3 books in the last month and let me tell you, it’s been a nice escape from daily life. Here’s a list of my recent reads:
