For YEARS I have struggled with finding things to read that kept my attention. Part of that of course is due to my ADHD, but even aside from that, sometimes I felt like I just didn’t know what to read.
Since reading is awesome, and I am trying to be more mindful in how I spend my free time, I wanted to start working on reading more.
I meant to start this “what I’m reading” series last month buuuuut life got the best of me and here we are and I am trying not to judge myself for my slackery.
So, in the spirit of “better late than never” we are starting this what I’m reading series RIGHT NOW!
Some of these books I started last month, soooooo I guess technically that counts as what I’m reading in January too, right?
While we’re on the topic of reading and procrastination, riddle me this:
Why is it that although I love reading I struggle to find the time and motivation to do it? I have the hardest time sitting down with a book and actually reading it.
I guess maybe that’s because reading doesn’t feel productive, more like an indulgence and that I should be doing other things.
Maybe that’s something I need to unpack and work on in my own life: Making time to read just for the enjoyment of reading!
Do you struggle with that too? Please tell me I’m not the only one!
Anyway, this month I am making time for myself, and making time to read. So let’s look at what is gonna be on my nightstand this month!
As a fat girl myself, this book spoke to me. I'm about halfway through, and while the stories are entertaining, I was hoping to find more about the how to be more comfortable in my own skin, rather than just stories from the author's life.
That said though, I still am enjoying this one and definitely think it's worth the read for plus size ladies everywhere!
I haven't cracked this one open yet but God damn if I am not looking forward to it. I've been having a lot of conversations lately about guilt, procrastination, my constant need to apologize and fear of success and this book seems like it's going to address all those self-defeating behaviors and I cannot wait to dive into this one!
This one spoke to me. Along the same lines as Get Out of Your Own Way, this book promises to help me get out of my head. Can you tell I have a thing for self-help books? Always on the path for personal growth. It's probably an addiction at this point.
