Books I’ve Read

One of my FAVORITE things to do… is READ!!!!!  Y’all I love love love love love to read!!  I am a paper book kind of gal but listening to books (which I didn’t start doing till late 2016 is something I like to do as well (and it means I can “read” more!!).  Both of my parents have always been avid readers and my mom is a teacher so books have always been part of my life.  My parents tell me I went through a season where reading wasn’t my favorite… but I don’t remember that season 🙂 … I just know I love books.  And ever since college have an even deeper love of books!!  There are a few genres that I 100% stay away from like mystery and crime and sci-fi… that’s just NOT my cup of tea…. but I love to read about new subjects, gain better understand, learn new things and learn about people… and probably more than anything be transported into a whole new world.

I’ve gone back almost 10 years and found where I have written down most of the books I’ve read or listened to (and it’s a lot) and as I get time I’ll update this list with previous years but for now I wanted to share the books I read from 2014 – 2018!!  These books are ALL over the place!! From fiction… to parenting… to self-help… to business… to life… to new stuff … etc… I have no rhyme or reason to the order I read them in or why I decided to read a book.  I should probably write reviews on books I read/listen to (goal for 2019) but for now… here is my list!!!  As I update it I’ll let everyone know on social media so y’all can come take a look!!!

If you have any books you highly recommend PLEASE let me know!!!  And PS just because I have a book listed doesn’t mean I would recommend the book or even stand by what the books says…. so no judgement on what I’ve read because one really doesn’t know how I feel about the book and it’s content… I simply want to put out there what I’ve read because I ALWAYS have people asking for what I’m reading or what I have read.  So here it is!!!
