"The more that you read, the more things you will know. The more that you learn, the more places you'll go." ~Dr. Seuss
As I've said before, we all have different preferences for books and sometimes books we've heard so much about just don't do it for us but other times the unexpected books teach us more than we thought. This month was one of those months in which I read a book that I've had for years but just never picked it up to read it and when I finally did I was underwhelmed. Disappointing, but a good lesson nonetheless, it's just a reminder that we all have different tastes. That being said these books may not be for you, but they're ones that I've read recently and I want to share them as they may be a good book for you!
- The Happiness Project by Gretchen Rubin: I will be honest that this book was really slow reading for me and took me a long time to get through. I remember when the book first came out and I felt like I heard about it everywhere, so I scooped it right up but then it sat on my bookshelf for years. I thought it was a good time to finally pick it up and read it, but I just didn't connect that well to it. Don't get me wrong there were definitely some good take away points from the book and that is why I am still choosing to write about it here. There are some things in the book I think we can all benefit from that likely will make us happier in some way if we make the changes discussed in the book. Definitely worth checking out I think, but it seemed to be a slow read (maybe that was just for me!)
- Attached: The new science of adult attachment and how it can help you find - and keep - love by Amir Levine, M.D. and Rachel S.F. Heller, M.A: This book on the other hand was a super fast read for me and I found it to be SO educational and interesting. This book discussed adult attachment theory and the reasons that some people are more or less successful in relationships. This is a book that I think we can all benefit from reading so we have a good understanding of the way in which we attach to others. Whether or not we are in a healthy or unhealthy relationship currently, the book provides fascinating information to help change or improve our current relationships, something I think we can all get behind! Two thumbs up for this one.
Stay tuned for more book recommendations next month. I've got some good ones on my list to read for the month!
