This month has been so busy. Between our trip, closing on our house, and adjusting back to work I feel like all my time has been occupied. I haven’t had as much time to read as I have liked but I still was able to tackle some great books that I would like to pass along to you!
1. The Woman in Cabin 10 by Ruth Ware. I have seen this book circulating on Pinterest for awhile ( I look at books on Pinterest, I know I am a nerd) but never checked it out. I am a big fan of thrillers- I love getting sucked into a book and feeling like I cannot put it down! This book did just that! It reminds me a lot of The Girl On the Train but it has its own unique surprise elements. This is a perfect vacation read. Shop on Amazon here: The Woman in Cabin 10
2. The Nest by Cynthia D’Aprix Sweeney. Again, this is another book that I have been meaning to read for awhile. The front cover has a recommendation from Amy Poehler who is possibly my favorite person in the world because—Leslie Knope. Anyway, this story follows the dysfunctional Plumb family. The siblings have all been counting on “the nest” or family trust to save them from their impending financial troubles but when that security is threatened trouble ensues. This is a great book about family and human relationships. It left me feeling so thankful for my family and the friendships I have with my own siblings. Shop on Amazon here: The Nest
3. The Road Back to You by Ian Morgan Cron and Suzanne Stabile. I heard about this book on a podcast and instantly knew I needed to read it. This book dives into the concept of the Enneagram and its use to understand ourselves. The book covers the 9 personality types and how those interact with each other. Each chapter talks about what the personality type looks like at work, in relationships, and in childhood. It also discusses what your “deadly sin” is or biggest pitfall–what you struggle with. Honestly, I teared up when I read the chapter that fit me because I felt so understood. I am a 9, peacemaker. Along with the book, there is a podcast where people with various personality types share their experiences. I haven’t given it a listen yet but I can’t wait!
