It’s Monday! What are you reading?

I had a HELL of a week. On top of a horrible couple of months. So this week’s reading is all about non-fiction, self-help, get my ass out of misery books.

 

First up is The Gifts of Imperfection: Let Go of Who You Think You’re Supposed to Be and Embrace Who You Are by Brené Brown. She’s been popping up all over my social media for the last few months and I am super excited to finally get a chance to read this book.

Then I’ll be tackling The Bitch in Your Head: How to Finally Squash Your Inner Critic by Jacqueline Hornor Plumez. And OMG do I EVER need to read this one!

Finally I’ll be delving into Resilience: Hard-Won Wisdom for Living a Better Life by Eric Greitens.

Yups, this week it’s all about ME.

It’s been almost a whole month since I’ve posted anything and I am totally blaming the snow. It’s been a rough winter with ridiculous amounts of snow and storm after storm after storm. I live in the country by myself most of the time so I was in serious survival mode for the last little while. But the temps are getting warmer and it’s been over a week since we’ve been hit with bad weather, so I think spring is finally here!

I love this meme, but I find I tend to get enthused and post a list of five or six books then I don’t read them then I feel bad. So from now on I’ll be posting the THREE BOOKS I plan on reading each week.  Yes, I am self imposing a limit!

The first two books I’ll be reading this week are a new series by a fave author of mine . I’m reading the first one for review and the second one as a beta reader. I don’t think the series has been announced yet, so I’m gonna be a bit cryptic about it. It’s an YA contemporary series and I did start the first book and am LOVING IT.

The third book I’m planning on reading this week is Management of the Red Fox in Captivity by Jessica Adams and Andrew Miller. We rehabbed a baby red fox last spring/summer and I’m interested in learning more about them.

That’s my reading list for the week!

Oh yeah, baby! I LOVE this meme. It gives me a chance to let you guys know what I’m reading this week but also lets me check out what other bloggers are reading. :D

I received my first review copies now that I’m back! The wonderful Lani Woodland sent me eCopies of two of her books Stronger and Pieces of Jade(with Melonie Piper).  I started Stronger yesterday and read about 70% of it. So I’ll be finishing that tonight. (I cannot wait! Loving this book.) I’m just easing back into my love of reading, so my reading list for this week is light. But here’s what I’m hoping to read:

Dreamland — Sarah Dessen (LOVE her books. I imagine this will be a quick read.)
Persuasion — Arlene Dickinson (The hubs bought this for me last year.)
Deadly Heat — Richard Castle (I am OBSESSED with this series.)

This fun weekly book meme was created by  J.Kaye’s Book Blog, but  Sheila from One Person’s Journey Through a World of  Books has taken over hosting duties. It’s a great way to not only keep track of what you are reading and have read, but to let others know of any great books coming up.

I had another not too bad reading week. I got hit with a mondo headache Wednesday, which slowed me down a bit.

I am sooooo behind on my review books it isn’t funny. What it is in panic attack inducing. So while I need to go through my stack and prioritize, I’m not sure what I’ll be reading this week, but I’d like to get 4 – 6 read.
