Books

January Reads

I set the goal of reading 24 books this year, but I am aiming to beat that number. I read 22 books in 2019, and my goal was 20. I do count audiobooks as books read, because I do pay attention and process the words. I use Audible for my audiobooks. It’s a monthly payment of 15$ or so but you can use the credit you get on any book, no matter the cost. You can also purchase extra credits. I think they’re 3 for 35$, which is great because some of the books cost 35$ alone.

This is what I’m hoping to read through this month:

The Handmaids Tale by Margaret Attwood

I’ve had this one on my TBR for a while. It’s based on a dystopian world during the second American civil war. The book follows Offred, a handmaid to a commander. She lives her day to day life in this new world and shares memories of her husband and daughter from “the time before”.

There is a television series out based on this novel, and I have wanted to watch it, but I wanted to read the book first, as usual, so I’m finally getting it done!

Girl, Stop Appologizing by Rachel Hollis

I don’t know if you’ve read or listened to Girl, Wash Your Face yet, but I highly recommend it! First of all, Rachel is adorable, and second, she makes you wanna get out there and kick some serious butt pursuing your dreams.

Yes, I just included a screenshot from my iPhone. I can’t help it, it’s an audiobook, so that’s basically all there is.

The idea behind this book is that if you want to make a change in any aspect of your life, you need to change yourself. Your day to day behaviours make up your whole life, whether for good or bad. There are lots of tidbits of info in this about how to tweek things in your life to make them work in your favour, and lots of motivation to get out there and do it.

I’d like to say I’m going to get another book finished this month too, but honestly, I’m loving Girl, Stop Apologizing so much that I think I might have to listen twice!

What are you reading this month?
