I don't even want to think about narrowing down a list of all-time favorite books, but I went through my Kindle to refresh my memory on books I loved this year that I would recommend to almost anyone, and here are three that made the cut (in no particular order):
Favorites Books of 2016 (so far):
1.The Nightingale: I love historical fiction and this is so well done. Very engaging story, excellent character development.
2. The Royal We: This is the best "chick lit" book I've read in awhile. Fun, easy, entertaining. I think I was a little let down by the ending but overall I enjoyed it a lot.
3. You are a Badass: This is easily the most motivating, positive book I've ever read. If you're looking to make any kind of change in your life from career to hobbies to friendships, you need to read this book! Thanks again to Erin for buying this for me so I had no excuse not to read it. And thanks to Megan's (currently private) post for convincing me I should read it in the first place!
I really enjoyed these books but they're the type where I'm not sure if other people will like them as much as I did!
Where'd You Go Bernadette
The Kind Worth Killing
I have one more "honorable mention" book that I shared on Snapchat earlier this week. If you missed it, I'll be talking about it again on Wednesday so stay tuned for that!
I'm currently subscribed to these three magazines:
US Weekly: I love to get this and flip through it on the weekend, but because it's a weekly magazine, the subscription is pretty expensive. Considering I spend less than five minutes on it a week, I might not renew this one. (But I do enjoy it! It's just hard to justify the cost.)
People Style Watch: My favorite fashion magazine because they feature products I can actually afford!
Redbook: Just like People Style Watch, Redbook often features a lot of affordable outfit pieces. I also think they have interesting lifestyle articles on finances, relationships, health care, etc. that are actually worth the read.
Dancing with the Stars is back and I'm loving (almost) every minute! I DVR this and watch in playback so I can skip the dancers I don't enjoy (ahem...Rick Perry). But there's quite a lot of talent this season, and so far my favorites are Laurie/Val (below) and Sharna/James. I've always loved Sharna's choreography (and dancing, of course) so I'm happy for her that she has a promising partner this year.
I've been very lucky to turn my favorite bloggers into real life friends, and I can't even tell you how much support they give me behind the scenes here! You can read more about our first meetup here.
Erin - always helping me find balance!
Skye - always making me laugh!
