Another month of reading finished! It feels like I spent half of September in the car, so I definitely should have picked up some books on CD this month. Regardless I did read some great books (and some that were just okay). The full list is HERE.
Well, normally I’d start this review by stating that I don’t typically read this type of book, but then I realized I have read quite a few of “this type of book” this year, so . . . The story revolves around a group of high school kids and how they react to the news that there is a very strong chance that a meteor will hit and destroy much of the world in just a few weeks. Typical teen angst, but also some real revelations on what is important in life. I read it to see if I should give it to my daughter to read, but at 11, she is much too young. Luckily I enjoyed it! My rating 4 out of 5.
Although this book was slow going for me, I am glad I stuck it out. It’s the story of two marriages and a life-long friendship. The characters are very well developed – and even if you don’t like their choices, because you understand them so well, you understand why they act the way they do. An interesting reflection on what true friendship and love can look like. My rating 4 out of 5.
I’m sure you knew you’d see this book on my list. I just think this is a great resource full of quick and easy tips to improve your productivity at work. If you haven’t read it, check it out. I’ve posted more of my thoughts on it HERE, HERE and HERE. My rating 5 out of 5.
Some of this book was a little “woo-woo” for me, but overall I found it full of practical and useful advice. I haven’t begun “KonMaring” my house, but I suspect I’ll implement a lot of the ideas as I move through my month of simplifying in October. I think overall, the BEST nugget is the idea of keeping only what you love. My rating 4 out of 5.
