Mid-Year Check-In: My 2018 Book List

Hello Friends,

I thought I would check-in with you all, as we have now passed the “mid-year point” and it is already August (that came around fast!!)

Today I would love to share with you all the things I have been reading and listening to this year.

It has been a year of much growth and change, and I hope you find this list as useful as I have!

Books I have read this year:

Braving The Wilderness: The Quest For True Belonging And The Courage To Stand Alone, by Brene Brown

Daring Greatly, by Brene Brown (I’ve read this more than once!)

Never Broken: Songs Are Only Half The Story, by Jewel (Currently reading)

Big Magic: Creative Living Beyond Fear, by Elizabeth Gilbert (Currently reading)

There may be a few more I have forgotten to list here…

and yes, I often read more than one book at once. My habit since childhood has been to have 1-3 books on-the-go at any one time. It is a hard habit to break, as there are just too many good books out there, and I am eager to absorb more and more knowledge, insights, and wisdom.
