Books 2018 RECAP: HALF WAY!Charlotte, NC

I thought I would do a little blog post about the books I’ve read thus far this year. I’ve been reading like crazy this summer and I never thought I’d be one of those people that read 3 books at a time but I am! I’m currently finishing up – What did you Expect?, Here’s to us, and Big Little Lies (just finished!).

 

Books I’ve read this year –

Business:

The 4-hour work week
The compound Effect
What the most successful people do before Breakfast
2 Second Lean

Out of the business books I’ve read thus far I would say The Compound effect by Daren has been life giving and life changing. It is the easiest read ever and not even 200 pages. I recommend this book if you want to change your life and if you don’t life to read!! All the others books are absolutely fantastic and I recommend each one!

Personal Growth:

Present over perfect
Boundaries in Marriage
What did you Expect?

For personal growth my favorite hands down is Boundaries in Marriage. If you are married or getting married you MUST read this book. My marriage improved in a matter of days because of this book. I am planning on reading Boundaries (if you’re not married I recommend this one!). Also, I will say What Did you Expect? Kicked me in the pants. This is a close second and if you are married just buy it NOW. I will say I want a huge fan of Present over Perfect. I felt it lacked depth.

Leisure:

My Husbands Wife
Big Little Lies
Here’s to us
The seven Husbands of Evelyn Hugo
Little Fires Everywhere

My favorite leisure book has been Big Little Lies. SO good! If you want a book that you just cannot put down this is it. The second runner up is The Seven Husbands of Evelyn Hugo. Although I do recommend all the leisure books. Each one was a great read!

Lastly here is my list of books to read the rest of the year!

Business:

168 Hours
Deep Work
Get a Grip
Big Magic
The Defining Decade

Personal Growth:

Radical
How’s Your Soul?
Fierce Hearted

Leisure:

Crazy Rich Asians
We were Liars
An American Marriage

I’m sure I will add more along the way so at the end of the year I will do another recap of my favorite books! If you have any must read books please email or comment! I love book recommendations!

Kailey
