Check out some of the great reads I cozied up with this month!

It’s Your Weirdness That Makes You Wonderful by Kate Allan
I absolutely treasure this book. The art throughout the book is SO uplifting and it’s much more rewarding than just reading a regular inspirational quote. The author herself struggles with anxiety and depression and I feel connected with her through this book. Finally, someone gets it and is doing their best to share things that helped them survive it. I love that it’s really pointing out that self-love and self-care are crucial to well-being. This is a book I will treasure forever and ever.

The Lighten Up Book by Allen Klein
I LOVE THIS BOOK! The truth is, we all go through chaotic and difficult times but this book is so encouraging and is very inspirational. Honestly we all need to smile more and laugh as much as possible and this book really made me happy. It actually made me adapt a new mantra of lightening up no matter how serious of a situation I’m facing. This would be especially meaningful during a tough time but obviously reading this book WHENEVER can help you adapt an attitude where you can step back, take a breathe, and lighten up.

Positive Thoughts for Troubling Times by Allen Klein
Times are…tough. Let’s be honest. This book is very much needed in the country and the world right now. This book has helped me remember to rise above what’s going on and not let it take over my thoughts. It’s a great tool for working on fear and adapting better to change (because it’s inevitable of course) and I can use what I learned from this precious book in my everyday life no matter what situation I’m faced with. This is a great book for someone that is constantly saying how “crazy” the world is lately. We all know it, we all see it, you aren’t alone, now it’s time to reassure yourself that it’s going to be okay.

You are an Awesome Woman by Becca Anderson
What an uplifting and inspiring read. I love the inner work that’s discussed here and how it highlights that attitude is everything. Becca Anderson is one of my favorite authors. This book is filled with important habits to adapt into everyday life like positive affirmations and regular attitude check-ins and adjustments. I will keep this on my coffee table so I can read bits of it everyday.

Your Life is Your Prayer by BJ Gallagher and Sam Beasley
A great book for anyone who is spiritual. This book helps you adapt prayer in whatever way you choose to do it into your life to manifest the things you want. It explains how important the prayers you put out into the universe are and it’s a very uplifting and motivational book. I actually feel more empowered after reading this and I have more faith in the universe.

In the Dream House by Carmen Machado
A realistically terrifying story about one woman’s abusive relationship is something almost all of us can relate to in some way shape or form. It’s beautifully written and no matter who you are, it’ll make you realize you’re not alone. These issues are real and I have so much admiration for the author and how she navigated these years of her life.

Wild Game by Adrienne Brodeur
WOW! I was captivated by this memoir about a woman who grows up keeping the secret as a kid, a teen, and an adult, of her mother’s affair with someone close to the family. She goes on to show how it literally affected every aspect of her life and the decisions she made. This was a raw look at something many families can experience. This is an absolute must read!

The Last Blue by Isla Morley 
This was a beautiful novel that takes place in the 1930s and 1970s about a man who when working for the government as a write and photographer, walks into a situation where he could document “the Blue People of Kentucky” and let his career take off or he could do what’s morally right and respect their need for privacy. There’s some precious romance built into this and I love the whole “blue skin” thing because there are many lessons to be learned from this, especially in today’s world. This was such a good book from one of my favorite authors and I love the emotions that are felt throughout this story.
