December Book List

3 December 2014

Another month has passed I’m taking you through the books I plan to read in December. Oh and Goodreads and my book challenge? Let’s not mention that, it’s a sore subject. I did however managed to finish The Hundred-Year-Old Man Who Climbed Out of the Window and Disappeared, so yay for that! 

So last month I absolutely loved the books I read. Mother, Mother and Willpower were amazing. For me I could relate a lot to Mother, Mother and it was just so wonderful written and not over the top. Willpower was great because it taught me a lot of things, it did feature a lot of experiment talk (I’d say 75%) but it used it was used to get the point across. It was a great learning tool though and I really do feel like it has helped me to understand a bit more about my own willpower, and possibly why I seem to lack it at certain points. I’m nearly done with The Power, however did not get to finish it in November but not long now until I do! But on to this month’s book list!

So three books for this month, and hopefully I’ll be able to read some more during the time off over the holidays.

Revenge Wears Prada: The Devil Returns by Lauren Weisberger. I actually picked this up in November and started to read about 30 pages of it because I’d forgotten to take anything with me to work. However I did stop reading it, so I plan to pick it up for this month. I liked the first book and of course I really like the film, so I was interested to see what the sequel is like. Truth be told in those 30 pages I think I can safely say it is not as good, and if any of the reviews I’ve read about it is anything to go by, then yep it’s not as good. But still worth a read eh? After all I do want to see what ‘Ahn-dre-ah’ made of herself after she left Runway.

Simplify by Joshua Becker. I absolutely love Joshua Becker’s blog Becoming Minimalist, I think he writes about something incredibly important. He writes about minimalism on his blog and his book is about ways to simplify your life and I’m home, which I’m sure ultimately comes down to not giving in to consumerism. I’m super excited for this because despite what it looks like on the blog I really do like to think about my purchases, and not get too caught up in having so much. If I’m honest having so much stresses me out, so I do need tips to streamline my life and not get caught up in ‘buy buy buy’.

The Places That Scare You: A Guide to Fearlessness by Pema Chödrön. I’ve had this book in my ‘save for later’ basket for a while now and randomly in November I thought of it again, so I purchased it on the Kindle last week as for some reason it was 99p. I’m super excited to read this; I was recommended this by my psychologist over a year and a bit ago, so I think it’s time I finally read it.

What are you reading this month?
