What I Read in January


My goal for 2018 is to read 1 fiction and 1 non-fiction book per month. I was successful in January so we'll see how the rest of the year goes! Here's a look at what I read in January. 

THE ALCHEMIST BY PAULO COELHO | FICTION 
I've heard multiple people say that this book is life changing and will really make you re-evaluate your own life. And oh my goodness, yes. It absolutely did that for me as well! I found myself highlighting so many passages and scribbling notes for the future. The book is about a young man who goes on to travel the world in the search for treasure. The lessons he learns along the way are things you will be able to reference in your own life. I don't want to give any of it away. If you haven't read it, this is a must read! (PS: This salted caramel donut from Beilers Donuts is AMAZING)

THE GIFTS OF IMPERFECTION BY BRENE BROWN | NON FICTION
Brene Brown is a research professor who has held numerous ted talks and written multiple books on the topic of courage and bravery. Many of her books are on my future reading list but this one in particular stuck out to me. I've dealt with being perfectionist my entire life, to the point where it's been unhealthy in the past. (Real talk). Brown goes through different techniques of how to let go of your perfectionism throughout the book and discusses the topic of self acceptance which I found incredibly helpful. I'm looking forward to reading more of her books in the future. 

WHAT I'M READING NEXT 
My fiction pick for February is Little Fires Everywhere by Celeste Ng. This is the first suspense book I've read in months so I'm looking forward to diving into this one! My non-fiction pick is Love Does by Bob Goff which is a series of essays that are supposed to strengthen your openness to love - a great pick for the month that

  4. I've been meaning to read The Alchemist for forever :P I love how balanced your reading goal is, and it certainly helps that you actually pick out your reads at the beginning of the month ^-^ -Audrey | Brunch at Audrey's
