By the title of this you probably think that I am a book expert. I wouldn’t quite put myself in that category though. When it comes to reading I am either reading a ton or reading none at all.
One of my goals for this year and for life in general is to read more. Not just a certain genre or topic but anything and everything. I always love when people suggest books to me! So each month I’ll try and post my book of the month.
For this month I have a few! They are on the smaller size but they each have a lot of meaning to them.
The Mastery of Love by Don Miguel Ruiz is one of the most inspiring self-help books I’ve read. It not only talks about your relationship with others but with your relationship with yourself. I couldn’t put it down the first time I read it! The second time I read it I went through and highlighted my favorite parts or important messages that would I thought were significant or pertain to my life.
This next book looks a little worn out and that’s because it is! When I was younger I use to keep all my books perfect. I didn’t like when the pages were bent, I would avoid making creases in the spine of the book, and I never understood why people wrote in them. Needless to say I do all those things now! I learned breaking the spine of the books, folding the corner pages down, writing in them adds character. It shows you use your books and put effort into reading them. The more worn out they are the more you read and enjoyed the book. I can’t exactly pin point the exact moment I learned or where I even heard this but I’m glad it stuck!
A Heart for the World written by Megan Haller is an incredible read. I don’t want to give any spoilers away but what I loved about this book was her positivity and her faith in The Lord. Reading her experiences and accomplishments would give me chills and get me teary eyed … But then again I can be a very emotional person! Anyway give this one a read you will be inspired! Great author great human being!
Milk and Honey by Rupi Kaur was recommended by a friend. I wasn’t sure about this one but I became curious when I read an excerpt I had found online. When I first started it I was completely confused but I was encouraged to keep reading and I’m glad I did! It touched my soul (I also may or may not have shed a few tears here and there). This was so beautifully written I could not recommend this book enough!
Please recommend any good reads!!
