I am sharing one of my favorite monthly blog posts, a roundup of all the books I read last month. It has been so much fun reading ALL the books this year, 2020 might be the year of books for me. This month I finished 5 books and they are all books that you must add to your reading list. If you are looking to get into a good reading habit I talk a little bit about how I started reading every single day here. Okay, onto the books I read!

Project 333: This is, of course, a very exciting book to share with you because my favorite human being, my mom, wrote it! This is her second book and it did not disappoint. Project 333 is all about the minimalist fashion challenge that not only changes closets but changes lives. Whether you are a minimalist or not (I am definitely not) there is something to be learned from this book.

Such a Fun Age: When I ordered this book, I didn’t really know what it was about. I had seen a lot of buzz around this book and ordered before reading anything about it. This book was phenomenal. Without giving away too much, it begins with a scene where a young black woman is accused of kidnapping the child she babysits and then all the events that follow. You will not regret picking up this book.

Dear Edward: Looking to cry? Dear Edward will have you sobbing and I am talking the gross ugly crying. This book is about a boy who survives a plane crash that kills all the other passengers, including his family. The author switches from present-day to events on the day of the crash. This heart-wrenching book should not be read in public unless you have tissues on hand.

Maybe You Should Talk to Someone: I don’t know why it took me so long to pick up this book. Truth be told I listened to the audiobook (and LOVED the narrator). This book was insightful, funny, and relatable. Definitely give it a read or listen when you get the chance.

The Wives: Whoa, this thriller had me turning pages non-stop for a full 24 hours. I found myself bargaining, do one hour of work and you can read for one hour, just so I could finish. I really can’t share too much without giving a lot away, but just trust me if you like thrillers you are going to love this book.

It makes me so happy that I got to share five books that were raves! Sometimes it takes me a little while to get into a book but these five basically finished themselves. Let me know the books you are currently reading in the comments!

    I just finished Chronicles, Vol. 1 by Bob Dylan. I was a child when he was in his heyday, and didn’t really get his music. It didn’t matter – it was fascinating, inspiring, and totally enjoyable. I’ll admit I listened to the audio book and might not have read the whole thing if I’d had to do it “manually”, particularly the passages where he lists numerous musicians that I’ve never heard of. I think if you’re a fan, you’d definitely enjoy.

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.
