My Love List: Book Edition

May 12, 2020

I have always loved to read.  I remember being a kid and looking forward to heading to bed because I could dive into the pages of a new adventure.  I will say my taste has grown up a bit since my Baby-Sitters Club days but my love for reading is as strong as ever.

In this season of life, my favorite topics to read about are personal development, faith, and business.  I also love flipping through a gorgeous cookbook! When I get a little bit more time to relax, I can’t resist an Emily Giffin novel (bonus if it’s a beautiful day and I can read outside in our backyard with a tall glass of ice tea!)

It is so amazing to me that for pennies on the dollar you can learn about pretty much anything.  It’s like meeting up for coffee and mining the author’s brain for gold.  I believe personal development and stories of faith have played a HUGE role in shaping and shifting my mindset.  I can see how my outlook on my life has changed for the better. 

I wanted to put all my favorites in one place.  Here is a list of books I have absolutely loved reading and oftentimes even go back and reread. 

Grab your glass of ice tea & enjoy!
