In 2019, I’ve set a goal to read one book per month. Here, I’m updating this list monthly with the book I read each month. Happy reading!


Book: Chasing Slow

Author: Erin Loechner

My take on it: Erin Loechner’s nonfiction book outlines our general desire to chase “slow living,” and offers tips of how to slow down without self-judgment throughout the process. Quick read and enjoyable! This was a nice start to the year, but would be great for anyone struggling to balance work, family, and self care.

Book 1: Girl, Wash Your Face!

Author: Rachel Hollis

My take on it: Rachel Hollis outlines a variety of lies women have told themselves, and goes through each one to debunk it, using her personal anecdotes to help explain their fallacies. This book has been wildly popular, as a #1 New York Times bestseller.

Unpopular opinion, but it wasn’t my favorite. There were parts of it that really resonated with me, and other parts that just left me shaking my head. It was really fast reading and a lot of her quips were readily digestible, so it’s worth a shot if you’re looking for a good pump up, with a dash of girl power.

Book 2: The Subtle Art of Not Giving a F*ck

Author: Mark Manson

My take on it: Mark Manson has another #1 New York Times bestseller here (so maybe I’m just late to the party on these…) and this one, I loved. He’s real about anxiety and stuff that’s not worth stressing about – so you have more breathing room to focus on what is.

If you’re not into foul language, this isn’t for you – otherwise, strongly recommended!
