January Book List

I’m Fine and Neither are You: I started this book on a whim because it was free with Kindle Unlimited and was suggested based on other books I had read. I was over the moon thrilled with this book, especially with no context going into it. For some reason, I kept expecting this book to turn into a thriller, but I am going to tell you now … it does not. Instead, it takes a deep dive into what it means to live a picture-perfect life and how asking for what you need will build a more fulfilling life. 

Bringing Down the Duke: I have had this book sitting on my shelf for SO LONG. Want to know why? Because I didn’t like the cover. I know! I can’t believe I judged a book by it’s cover. This romance novel is such a fun read. I got this in my Book of the Month subscription and they described it as “A little feminist, a little romantic, but mostly just fun—and downright dirty on top of that.”

Everything is Figureoutable: If you are struggling with a new project, launching a course, starting a hobby, whatever! This book will help you. I have been a long time follower of Marie Forleo and her book is one of the best books if you are an entrepreneur or if you aspire to more than you are already doing. Her book helps remind you of what you have already accomplished, and the most important thing, that everything is figureoutable. 

Things You Save in a Fire: Yes, yes, yes this story is so fun to read. It is about a female firefighter who must uproot her life after getting fired from her station and rebuild her relationship not only with her mother but with love. It is truly a heartwarming story that will have you smiling the whole way through.

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.
