Books Read: July – December 2016

      12 Comments on Books Read: July – December 2016

I have been reading a ton this year. Maybe not compared to others, but compared to myself and years past. To be totally honest, I have been completely loving it. From the audiobooks on my drive to and from work, to a little chapter of an easy book before bed, I am really happy about this new addition to my life.

Sure, it sounds so simple and maybe a little weird, but this has never really been much of a habit for me, as much as my reading teacher mother would have loved, or really, as much as I would have as well. I’ve definitely learned time and time again, it’s all about the book for me and my current favorite genre is definitely the self-development and other non-fiction choices. I think it stems for my constant desire to learn and grow and just as the genre says, develop.

Over the summer I shared the books I read from the first half of the year so I figured it would be just as fun to now look back on the books I read during the last half of the year.

Check out my January to June books read here.

You Are a Badass’ by Jen Sincere

The Defining Decade’ by Meg Jay

Chop Wood, Carry Water’ by Joshua Medcalf

The One Thing’ by Gary Keller & Jay Papasan

It Was Me All Along’ by Andy Mitchell

Present Over Perfect’ by Shawna Niequist

The Girl With the Lower Back Tattoo’ by Amy Schumer

Little House in the Big Woods’ by Laura Ingalls Wilder

Daring Greatly’ by Brene Brown

Little House on the Prairie’ by Laura Ingalls Wilder

The Universe Has Your Back’ by Gabby Bernstein

The Desire Map Experience’ by Danielle LaPorte

Better Than Before’ by Gretchen Rubin

Can you tell I’ve decided to start re-reading the Little House series? These books were some of my favorites as a kid, but I haven’t read them since I was really little. It’s been fun to start reading them again and seeing what comes back and what I forgot. Next up is ‘Farmer Boy’ which is an addition to the series, but I still want to read it again!

I know everyone is going to ask what my favorite book was and while I am a big fan of a few of these for various reasons, standing above them all (if you haven’t noticed from my constant mention of it on social media and here on the blog too), is ‘The Universe Has Your Back’ by Gabby Bernstein. I’m already planning to read it again, but I’m currently working through Gabby’s ‘May Cause Miracles’ 42-day practice and then may pick up one of her other books before the re-read, but it’s going to happen. It’s one of those books I want to buy to have on hand so I can just pass it around for people to borrow as needed.

Another book I want to do that with and actually debated buying and shipping right to a few people was ‘Daring Greatly’ by Brene Brown where she talks about vulnerability in al aspects of our lives.

    I just bought a ton of used books recently on Amazon to make sure I would read more this year. 2016 I hardly read at all and it was mostly do to laziness 🙁 Daring greatly, It Was Me All Along, and Present Over Perfect are all on my list.
    I am listening to the universe has your back right now on audible and I’m loving it so far.

    I love the little house books! my grandma owns them and its one of the things I’ve mentioned to my mom about “wanting”. I almost bought present over perfect, but instead bought two different ones…I can’t remember what the titles are off the top of my head, but amazon will be delivering them on tuesday!

    This is just what I needed! I’ve been looking for some new books. I asked for the Gabby Bernstein book and am tempted by Amy Schumer book 🙂
