Books I Finished This Week:
I really enjoyed reading Daring Greatly by Brene Brown. It was really fascinating to think about the role that shame plays in our society and in my life. This book definitely gave me a lot to think about. I highly recommend it.
I had a chance from NetGalley to read Piper Green and the Fairy Tree: The Sea Pony by Ellen Potter. I think it is a fun read and will appeal to my lower readers. I will definitely look for this one when it comes out in August. I haven’t read any of the other Piper Green stories so now I will be looking for them also.
You know how sometimes the right book seems to fall in your lap? I have had this book for a long time, but something compelled me to find it on my Kindle and read it this week. The Wahls Protocol: How I Beat MS Using Paleo Principles and Functional Medicine by Dr. Terry Wahls outlines a diet and lifestyle plan that supports cellular health. This is one of those books that I picked up to peruse and ended up unable to put it down. The nutritional steps that she suggests taking are really aligned with what I have begun to understand to be very healthy goals. This is one of those times in which everything that I am learning seems to be converging into one set of things that I need to do to be healthier.
Books I am currently reading:
I am still listening to Winter by Marissa Meyer. This young adult series just keeps getting better. I am also still reading Death Comes to Pemberly by P.D. James. I am also reading In The Woods by Tana French. I had a mostly nonfiction sort of week, only really reading the novels at night before bed. I didn’t make much progress this way. I need to carve out some time this week for just sitting down and reading my books.
I was approved on NetGalley to read Gae Polisner’s new book The Memory of Things. I will definitely start that this week.
What are you reading this week? I would love to hear from you in the comments!
