Ever since I was little, I have been a HUGE bookworm. I’ve always loved reading. My idea of a perfect day is a day spent reading. Whether it’s on a beach or inside on a rainy day, I love the feeling of getting lost in a book. Since I read so much and am constantly being asked by friends and family for book recommendations, I thought I would share with you! Here is what I’m currently reading…

I loved this book. Gretchen Rubin is a New York Times best selling author who lives in New York City with her two daughters and husband. She had a great life but wanted to work on being “happier” to enjoy “more” of her amazing life. The book goes through a year during her “happiness project” and each month she works on improving another part of her life. This book was an interesting read and really reminded me to live in the moment and enjoy life. By following her happiness journey, it motivated me to look at different parts of my life and how I could get “more” out of them. Reading this book was a big reason I launched this blog. Everyone deserves to be the happiest they can be, and this book reminds the reader of that. Gretchen Rubin has another book out that I want to read about habits called Better Than Before: What I Learned About Making and Breaking Habits–to Sleep More, Quit Sugar, Procrastinate Less, and Generally Build a Happier Life.
Mindy Kaling is one of my favorite people and I wish I could be her best friend. I loved her writing on The Office and I have watched every episode of her own show The Mindy Project. I read her first book Is Everyone Hanging Out Without Me? (And Other Concerns) a few years ago and loved it. It had me laughing out loud in almost every chapter. I was so excited for her new book to come out and it did not disappoint. You can tell she has matured and learned a lot about herself since she wrote her last book. She covers everything from her body image, to sororities, to BJ Novak (I want them to get married and live happily ever after SO BAD). I think she is such an amazing role model for young girls. She’s hilarious yet the boss of her own show.
This book is written by the author of The Devil Wears Prada and I really enjoyed it. It is about a young female pro tennis player and her journey of trying to win a Grand Slam. It was very entertaining and had the same vibe of The Devil Wears Prada. Both books are about females trying to make it in a cut throat world while also trying to find themselves and become the person they want to be. This book would be a perfect beach or rainy day read.
I read this book over the summer and learned SO much. T is so knowledgeable about all things finance and I wanted to learn more about it so I could have intelligent conversations with him about our finances. I knew nothing about money management before reading this and it was perfect for someone like me. I feel like it should have been called “Money Management for Dummies”. It really broke down and provided a step by step guide on how to get your finances in order. This book is a few years old so some of the information is a bit antiquated, but the majority of it is so helpful and informative. After following some of the steps from this book, I finally feel like I know what is happening with day to day finances!
