Here are my picks for 2017 so far. You’ll note some are brand-new and others are classics I’ve just discovered.
In a Dark, Dark Wood by Ruth Ware – a super scary read, candy for the mind.
Persuasion by Dave / Lakani -almost unbelievable advice, hits a nerve.
Conversational Intelligence by Judith E. Glaser -sound, reasonable accessible pop psychology backed by research.
Now or Never: Your Epic Life in 5 Steps by Alexi Panos and Preston Smiles -the title says it all. This is power in book form.
Simply Organized by Emilie Barnes – jump started the Great Declutter of 2017 in my home.
The Broken Way by Ann Voskamp – nothing less than a deep examination of everything that’s truly important.
Shirley by Charlotte Bronte – this is a work in progress by my all-time favorite author, that I’m working feverishly to finish.
The Author’s Guide to AudioBook Creation by Richard Rieman – Intimidation but super helpful detailed advice in case I take the plunge.
Two-Part Invention by Madeleine L’ Engle – Caution: sadness here, but oh so much wisdom.
The History of English Literature by Perry Keenlyside – if you read any English literature at all you need to read this.
Payoff by Dan Ariely – Mr Ariely’s personal story is the key to this well-crafted exploration of human motivation.
