Hello friends! I hope that April treated all of you well. In my part of Pennsylvania we’ve been getting a ton of rain so I’m about read for those May flowers to pop up soon. But now that it’s finally May and starting to feel like Spring (Mid Seventies yesterday, aww yeah!) it’s time to do a wrap up of the books that I read last month.
1. All The Reminders You Need To Get You Through Anything In Life by Thought Catalog
I’ve always enjoyed reading Thought Catalog and this tiny eBook is a collection of two different articles from the site, filled with inspiring and thoughtful quotes to… well, get you through anything in life. I’m a big fan of positive thinking so I liked this little eBook. Because it’s very short I consider this a “cheat” book for my 2018 reading goal. Haha
2. Prosperous Creation by Monica Leonelle
I love Monica Leonelle because she can inspire and inform at the same time. Her books on writing have helped me very much and prosperous creation is great because she takes you through the steps of what it takes to make money from your talent (in this case, writing!). I definitely recommend this book for aspiring authors and self publishers.
I listened to the audiobook. The narrator is pleasant to listen to! (I feel like this is important to note because some audiobooks have annoying narrators and then it’s hard to get through the book).
3. Write. Publish. Repeat. by Sean Platt & Johnny B Truant
Another fabulous writing book! In this one, Sean and Johnny of the self publishing podcast write about how their writing careers began and how they started working together, along with their other creative partner Dave. I have read numerous books by these guys and I’ve enjoyed them all. I would definitely recommend if you’re interested in writing, self publishing, and creating passive income streams through eBooks and other products.
I listened to the audiobook and the narrator’s voice was very pleasing to my ears! Haha.
4. Simon vs. The Homo Sapien’s Agenda by Becky Albertalli
This might be my favorite read of the year so far. You know what? It definitely is. A great YA that follows a realistic teen on a realistic journey. Simon is so awesome and I love his family and his friend group. This is another one that I listened to on audio and I think I listened to the whole book in a day! Haha. There’s a bit of a mystery in this story and you won’t be able to put it down.
P.S. I made a few guesses along the way and I was wrong for all of them! Definitely a delightful tale with a somewhat surprising ending.
5. Wrapped in my Wife by Alexa Riley
A contemporary husband/wife romance because I was in the mood to read something a little sexy. Haha. Overall it was well written and the romantic parts were fun to read. However, I wasn’t a huge fan of the husband? Tracking your wife is a big no-no in my book. If you don’t trust her than what’s the point of being with her? (for real though, his wife was so sweet. I have no idea why he would not trust her, but whatever. It’s a book).
That’s it for this month. I’m glad that I have an audible account and can listen to audiobooks more because they definitely make the hours go by faster at work. What have you been reading this month?
