Happy Tuesday everyone! A new month means new goals, positive thoughts, and above all else, new books! In 2017, one of my big resolutions was to read more. Reading more was one of the few resolutions I was able to complete (I read 20 books over the year!) and it’s something that I’ve carried over into 2018. My goal is simple: aim to read *at least* one book a month, and this month I found two! Reading is always something I’ve enjoyed, but while attending college it was hard to pick up a book to read for fun when I was struggling to keep up with all of the required reading. I’m thrilled that I was able to pick it up again post graduation and have found that I’ve been interested in much more topics than just general fiction (what I’ve always gravitated to in the past).
My first pick for April is What Now?: Meditation for Your Twenties and Beyond by Yael Shy. I want to say I saw someone reading this on an Instagram (a great way to find a new book is to follow book clubs on the ‘gram or check out some boards on Pinterest) and I was instantly intrigued. Meditation has always been something that has interested me, and I would like to incorporate it more into my everyday routine so this seems a perfect way to do that!
My second pick is Killing It: An Entrepreneur’s Guide to Keeping Your Head Without Losing Your Heart by Sheryl O’Loughlin. I first saw discovered this book several months back when it was featured on Julia’s Instagram and the eye popping cover is what initially caught my attention (not to mention that I use the phrase “Killing It” on a regular basis). I’ve really enjoyed reading books about business, and because I’m just starting out with Wellness Done Write, I can use all the tips and tricks on starting a business off on the right foot.
I’ve set up links for both books that lead directly to their respective Amazon pages if you have a Kindle or want to buy them new. I personally purchased both of these books used off of Thrift Books, and if you would like to do the same, please use this link to get 15% off your first order! Since discovering Thrift Books I’ve ordered most of my books from them (they are usually cheaper than Amazon, and the minimum amount required to get free shipping is so low) but the only minor complaint I have is that shipping is slow (Amazon Prime has spoiled me). As long as you aren’t in a rush to read whatever you’re buying, it’s a great site to purchase books on!
I hope everyone has had a great start to the month of April so far, and I’ll be checking back in soon!
