This post is coming a little later than usual but with the long weekend, things just got away from me. I am looking forward to a BIG reading month in September. I have a lot of very exciting books lined up that I will share at the end of this August recap. 

Before we dive in, I wanted to chat quickly about Literary League. It is a digital and in-person book club with chapters all across the world (yes the world). I started the Salt Lake City Chapter in February and have had the best time meeting with these women once a month to chat about our book picks. If you have been thinking about joining a book club, I cannot recommend it enough. Click here to learn more and if you live in Salt Lake City, send me an email to join our group! 

Everything I Read in August

Yolk: This book was recommended to me by my friend Haley and I am so glad I read it. This book follows two sisters who are brought together under some very heartbreaking circumstances after being estranged for many years. It is such a raw look at family relationships and relying on your loved ones when you need them most. Everyone should add this book to their reading lists asap. 

Float Plan: An adorable love story that you can read in one sitting. This story follows Anna who lost her fiance a year ago and has been stumbling through life ever since. That is until she follows her wild plan to go on a sailing trip she and her fiance had planned. After one terrible night sailing, Anna realizes she might need a little extra help and hires Keane to help get her to where she is going. Needless to say, you will fall in love and think that you can become a full-time sailor by the end of this book. 

Nightbitch: One of the many reasons I am singing Literary League’s praises is because of this book selection. I would have NEVER picked this up and I am so glad they picked it up for me. This book is a Kafka-esque book that follows the story of a new mom who thinks she is turning into a dog. This intense story aims to illustrate the many different facets of motherhood and womanhood and I think Rachel Yoder did a beautiful job.

I'm Bailey, your new social media bestie.

Instead of doing what I thought I was supposed to be doing, I got intentional. I started asking “what if” all the time and I stopped putting so much pressure on myself to do things at the perfect time or the right way. Instead I took a little leap here and another there to create a life I love.
