Often I post pages of books that I’m currently reading on my Instagram Story & I get tons of messages. What book is that? Is it good? What other books do you recommend? etc.
So I thought I’d do a quick post sharing some of my favorites at this moment.
If you know me in real life you know that I’m always reading. I don’t get enough down time to read as much as I would like now with MJ but I do try to read a couple of books a year. I often read in the car while MJ is sleeping. Ever since I was a little girl I loved reading and writing. You would always catch me with a new book or a notebook. And as an adult now nothing has changed. The thought of someone else’s words on a paper moving me or making me feel what they feel always blew my mind. It’s almost like I look forward to reading something that I wasn’t able to express myself. If that makes sense.
Here are a list(in no particular order) of books that definitely moved me…
- Whiskey, Words & A Shovel II – R.H.SIN
- Out Of The Blue – Alfred Marroquín
- Letters, To The Men I Have Loved – Mirtha Michelle Castro Mármol
- Elusive Loves : Amores Esquivos – Mirtha Michelle Castro Mármol
- Letters, To Women Like Me – Mirtha Michelle Castro Mármol
- The Princess Saves Herself In This One – Amanda Lovelace
- A Work In Progress – Connor Franta
- Note To Self – Connor Franta
These are all Poetry Books so I didn’t want to go into detail about them because well they’re poems LOL. But each and every one of these books have taught me something about myself, or about how I view life. If you like to read about love, heartbreak, anxiety, pain, or life, then these books are worth a read. From R.H.SIN I have learned that pain can turn into something beautiful. Alfred Marroquín’s book has taught me that losing someone can sometimes lead to finding yourself. From MMCM I have learned that you have to love yourself first in order to love another. Amanda Lovelace taught me that no ones going to save you…you need to save yourself. Connor Franta made me see a better way to cope with my anxiety and be ok with getting out of my comfort zone.
You may not view these books as I did and that’s ok but I do hope that there is a book out there that you can read that’ll help you maybe put into perspective something that you’re going through. That whatever book it is, you learn something from it once you close it. That you can someday hold on to it and re-read it or maybe even hand it out to someone whom you think it may be of help to.
If you do decide to read any of these please let me know in the comments below…if you have any recommendations for me please let me know as well. As always thanks so much for reading!
