30 Day Writing Challenge: Day 3
Okay, awkward turtle. What I am about to tell you will probably explain why my grammar is so bad. I don’t read THAT much. Here I am with a blog and reading isn’t a “hobby” of mine. I know it would help me so much, but I’m being stubborn I suppose.
Even more humiliating than that is, the only series of books I’ve ever finished reading is the Twilight saga when I was about 15. If you want to unfriend me in every way possible because of this I totally understand.
However, there are two books I want to briefly talk about that I have read cover to cover and enjoyed very much.
Jen Sincero – You Are A Badass
It’s more less a self-help/motivational book. An award winning self-help book at that. I was dying to get my hands on this book when I discovered it, and when I went into the book store it was the last one left. As one would say, “meant to be”. I dug in and pretty much finished it in 2/3 days. She’s all about understanding that you might have issues, but it’s your responsibility to move past them and harness your inner badass. My brief synopsis is by no means doing any justice for how good this book actually is. It’s an easy read. She’s upbeat, and you learn a lot about yourself along the way. Go read it!
John Bevere – Good or God
The second book listed here was more of a gift, and I’m still so blessed it made its way into my life. There were times when reading this book was a breeze and then others I struggled to get past 3 pages. Not because I didn’t like it, but because it was kind of a spiritual realization for me. In short, this book is basically about things that are “good” aren’t always “God”. It makes you question the construct you have in place for the God you serve. Is it really God, or is it some God you created? I felt a great sense of accomplishment when I did finally finish this book because I didn’t give up. Lame, I know. But true.
Today’s post taught me that all of my teachers should have failed me for book reviews. In school they would always say “reading and writing go together.” This is true, and I am in a pickle my friends. There are endless benefits that come from reading books: good stories, learn how to use a freaking comma, expand your vocabulary, get better at conclusions. The list goes on and on. I will read more. Hopefully.
Tell me what books you love!
