Okay! So last month’s reads were more based on, “I need to chill. I need to not think about big things for a while.” So, where I’d normally have read something on mental health or spirituality, I decided to focus more on fiction.

I didn't understand boundaries. I didn't even know who I was, really. This is the book I should have read… Continue reading Braving The Wilderness with Brené
(Title to be read, obviously, in Becky's voice from How I Met Your Mother as she cheered for "boats, boats, boats!") So last year, I gave myself the goal of reading 100 books. I failed epically. I ended up cheating towards the end of the year and amending my GoodReads goal to 50. I made… Continue reading Books, books, books!
