I have a confession, I have never been a reader. I don’t like to read, yet I love the stories. When I was younger, I would fall asleep to get out of reading my summer books. To this day, I still get sleepy when I crack open a new book. This year, I decided to work around my issues and downloaded Audible. I listen to at least one new book a month now and have gotten so much out of each one!
I have a very specific taste in books, I love an autobiography. I love hearing how someone I know, got to where they are today. Having the familiar voice of a celebrity read their story to you is all the more interesting. My go to place for audio books used to be my car, I would run errands and listen to the calming voice of Julie Andrews tell me her life story. Since quarantine I have has less reason to leave the house and have had to adapt my listening schedule. Never the less, I have come across some great reads in the past few months that I am going to share with you today!
I learned about patience, perspective and consistency. This was one of the first “body books” I have ever read. In an effort to increase my awareness of my own health, I looked to Kate for guidance and I got it! I would 100% recommend this book for anyone looking to start out on a new body journey.
Have you ever felt connected to a person or movie because it just sounds like they get you? That is what Whiskey in a Teacup did for me. I have always admired Reese Witherspoon and her sweet southern charm. This book touches on what everything a southern lady is about, dinner parties, red lipstick and hot rollers, and of course family and good food.
A young famous face that is so relatable, it’s crazy! Her narration of this book is better then anything I could have ever dreamt up myself, one of the perks of having an actress read to you. Her story is hilarious yet inspiring. Easy read and now I know more about my favorite Pitch Perfect character.
The comforting voice of Mary Poppins coming through my headphones is beyond soothing. I admit, I never would have even considered attempting to read this giant book if I had stumbled across it in Barns and Noble. It took over 12 hours to finish this beauty but when I did, I felt I knew every detail of her life. Most of her career was before my time, so I was able to learn more about her incredible career and passion for all that she does.
My second venture into body positivity and health as a topic. Carrie Underwood, the incredible country singer and sweetheart has introduced me to new ideas about living a healthy lifestyle. Making unnecessary trips up the steps each day or parking far away at the store are some examples. Reading these books are all about gathering ideas on what I can do to make my everyday lifestyle more active and healthy. Hearing these tips throughout the day keeps my mind focused on what I should be doing.
I hope you enjoy at least one of these great books that I have listed above. Since I have more time on my hands, with fewer events and places to go. I am perfectly comfortable getting all BOOKED this weekend! ( I love a good pun. )
