Girl, Wash Your Face by Rachel Hollis
My favorite chapters/lies women like me need to stop believing:
- I’ll start tomorrow
- I’m not good enough
- I’m better than you
- Loving him is enough for me
- I should be further along by now
- I need a hero
Mosquitoland by David Arnold
Amazing Young Adult work – here’s my favorite quote:
“But that’s the personality of change, isn’t it? When it’s slow, it’s called growth; when it’s fast, it’s change. And God, how things change: some things, nothings, anythings, everythings…all the things change…A love born not of growth, but of change” (Arnold 230)
The Husband’s Secret by Liane Moriarty
After Big Little Lies, I wanted to get my hands on every Liane Moriarty novel. I was not disappointed by the twists, turns, and family drama that kept me guessing!
Rosie Dunne by Cecelia Ahern
Ahern taught me so much about timing and how many missed chances there are because of fear. It also gives way to the reality of how long it takes for happiness or at least that happiness doesn’t happen over night.
In the Neighborhood by Peter Lovenheim
2019 might be the year where I buy my first home! What better way to be a part of a neighborhood than interacting with neighbors!
“There’s talk today about how as a society we’ve become fragmented by income, ethnicity, city versus suburb, red state versus blue. But we also divide ourselves with invisible dotted lines. I’m talking about the property lines that isolate us from the people we are physically closes to: our neighbors” (Lovenheim xv)
October Sky (Rocket Boys) by Homer Hickam
One of my favorite movies emphasized by the beautiful memoir from Homer himself. I still get emotional seeing what the Rocket Boys accomplish from a small mining town.
