Happy New Year! I hope you enjoyed your holidays and are ready for a fresh start in 2016.
Reading is one of my favorite escapes. I am an introvert which means that I re-charge by spending time alone. Most of the time I do this by locking myself into a quiet room in my house with a good book.
I've always loved to read and wish that I had more time to do it now. I enjoy using the Goodreads app to keep track of the books I've read over my lifetime, the books I've read this year, and the books I want to read. It's also a fun way to see what my friends and colleagues are reading.
I managed to read 17 books in 2015 which was more than one a month on average. Being a wife, mom, and business owner limits my free time, so I thought that was a pretty good number! One of my goals for 2016 is to read 25 books. That's more than 2 per month. It will be a challenge!
I love using my Kindle Paperwhite to read because it's light to hold and the battery lasts forever!
Here are a few of my favorite books from 2015:
For the Love: Fighting for Grace in a World of Impossible Standards
by Jen Hatmaker
What Alice Forgot
by Liane Moriarty
by Dave Cullen
Books I'll be reading next...
I've already picked out a few to read as I start out 2016. My focus these next few months will be on books that I know my clients would be interested in and that will better me as a therapist. I will be doing a full review on these books as soon as I finish them!
The Other Side of Sadness
by George A. Bonanno
The Anxiety Cure
by Dr. Archibald D. Hart
Forgiving and Reconciling
by Everett Worthington
