I have made it a goal to read every night before bed. I always feel better ending my day with a book in my hands, instead of my phone or iPad, so I’ve got myself a stack of books (both virtual and paper) next to my bed. I also usually carry my Kindle around wherever I go, just in case I get some free time to do some extra reading! And below I will share with you my last month’s list of books. I have to admit that I have enjoyed them all, and each one of them added a little something to my life! So without further ado (can I have a drumroll please?!) here is my list:
1-The Happiness Project by Gretchen Rubin: If you have been reading my blog for a while, you would notice that I have recently read one of Gretchen’s other books, and I really loved it, therefore, I decided to read another book of hers. As the title states, it is a project done by Gretchen, in one year she wanted to tackle all the areas that she thought would make her happier. This is not a “Self-help” book, as much as it is a journal, where she kept track of her journey into being a happier person, what she did and did not, what she liked and what she didn’t and of course the final result! And just as her previous book, this one gave me plenty of ideas and mainly pushed me to start my own “Happiness Project”! A Must Read!!
2-How To Talk So Kids Will Listen & Listen So Kids Will Talk by Adele Farber and Elaine Mazlish: I know, the title is a little ….hmmm, how should I say that? Let’s just say a little strange lol, however, the content of the book is highly engaging, with examples of each situation you might encounter as a parent and how to deal with it and make the most of it. Even though my son is only 16months, and the book talks mainly about older kids, it still helped me build a foundation of how I want to raise, educate and TALK to my son! If you are a parent then it is definitely THE book!!
3- Blood Feud:The Clintons vs. The Obamas by Edward Klein: Do you remember few months ago, when I talked about Hliary Clinton’s new book: Hard Choices? Right then, I really hopped that she would become the next president of the United State Of America! Not only because she was a female, but also because she saw things differently! She was the woman in the “pantsuit”! I admired how she wanted to be Hilary the woman, and not always Bill’s wife! I admired that she wanted to tackle Asia as a priority, when she was a secretary of state; and how she came out publicly about Benghazi, Putin, China and many more highly sensitive subjects! However after reading this book last month -If what came in it is 100% true of course, because you can never be sure when it comes to politics- then I am very confused! This book shows a completely different side of Hilary and most definitely, not the one she was displaying in her book! It also brought tons of facts about president Obama that I am sure many of us didn’t know of! Nevertheless, I must say I really enjoyed reading this book, and if I could vote, I would still vote for Hilary!
4- The Husband’s Secrete by Liane Moriarty: A perfect book for the summer! Cecilia thinks she knows her husband inside out, yet she is surprised to discover a dusty sealed envelope with : ” For my wife -to be- opened only in the event of my death” written on it! What a dilemma…! I really enjoyed this book!
