Hi guys! Another month has passed and it is time to go over the books that I read this month. For those of you who don’t know, I made a commitment to myself to read a minimum of two books each month this year. I’ve always been an avid reader, but in this day and age of technology, it is hard to make the time to sit down and enjoy a book.
With that said, this is what I have read this month!
Year of Yes: How to Dance It Out, Stand in the Sun and Be Your Own Person by Shonda Rhimes
It is no secret that I adore Shonda Rhimes. She is a television genius and has created many of my favourite shows. This book goes through her journey from when she makes the commitment to say yes to everything, after saying no for so long. It was a great read and is rather inspiring. The personal growth she goes through as you read through the book is incredible. I highly recommend it! I also recommend this book if you watch any of her shows, she talks about them quite a bit as well and the behind the scenes insight was really interesting. I really could say so much more about this book but I won’t because I wouldn’t do it justice!
The Signature of All Things: A Novel by Elizabeth Gilbert
I managed to pick this book up on sale at Coles a few weeks ago which was a great score as I had this on my “to read” list. I’ve read quite a few of Elizabeth Gilbert’s books, however they have all been about herself so I was intrigued by her novel. I don’t even know how to describe this book. It is about a girl named Alma who is a talented botanist. It takes place in the 1800’s and is a tale of adventure and a thirst for discovery, but also about love and understanding. The book is written in sections as you journey through Alma’s entire life and all the places it takes her. I enjoyed it and spent the last few days with it practically glued to my hands. I can really appreciate the amount of research that Elizabeth Gilbert had to do to write about a character as knowledgable as Alma Whittaker.
So, that is what I have read this month! I would love to know if you have read anything lately so please feel free to leave a comment down below!
