Books I'm loving

I'm not much of a tv person. If you want to talk about a show or movie, chances are I haven't seen it, even if I would like it. But I was in a special advanced reading class in first grade because I could already read. I told my parents I was still afraid of the dark as a middle schooler so that I could sneak and read in bed with the hall light. I binge read like most people binge Netflix. I've already read several books this year, and I thought I'd share a few of the most impactful with you all this week. Deep Work, by Cal Newport This book defines Deep Work as a stretch of uninterrupted intense focus on a project, makes a case for why it is important, and gives strategies on how to cultivate it in our increasingly distracted world. Burnout the Secret to Unlocking the Stress Cycle, by Emily and Amelia Nagoski Every woman could benefit from this book- even if you don't feel burnt out. The authors talk about the stress cycle, how to complete it (I didn't even know this was a thing!), and how to become more resiliant. I'm only halfway through, but it is amazing! 28 Secrets to Glow Up, by Marianne Talkovski Life coach, acupuncturist, and esthetican. Marianne gives practica tips for healthy, energy and raidence-inside and out. Permission to Grieve, by Amy K L Busch Life coach Amy Busch shares her own grief journey after losing her brother to cancer. She shares the wisdom she learned on that journey, and suggestions for other berieved siblings to help them on their own path. Priory of the Orange Tree, by Samantha Shannon a fun fantasy novel with a feminist flair- magic, and dragons, and a Queendom without an heir. Support your local bookstore! xo, Samantha
