1.Something to make you laugh “Crazy Rich Asians. And the next two. Hilarious! Also, I feel like I learned a significant amount about eastern cultures. Not that all characters are “typical Asians”, rather in details about food, cities, locations, etc. Did I mention hilarious?” – Ashleigh
2. Parenting advice “I liked Good and Angry: Exchanging Frustration for Character I’m You and Your Kids! by Scott Turansky and Joanne Miller. It’s biblically based parenting advice that looks at the bigger picture and helps equip parents to rise above squabbling and yelling in order to build strong relationships with our kids.” – Sara
3. Historical fiction “The Nightingale by Kristin Hannah. The majority of the book takes place during World War II. It made me truly grateful for my peaceful life and grateful for all that I have.” -Keri
5. Biography of someone endearing “I’m way behind on my reading and sadly have not taken the time to read a good book lately. I have recently purchased the Mr. Rogers bio that I’m anxious to read. I loved him as a child and still do and think our world could greatly benefit from some of his life lessons right now.” -Pam
6. Totally absorbing “My motto: Reading is cheaper than therapy. This year I’ve read all four of Ruth Ware’s books— In a Dark, Dark Wood, The Woman in Cabin 10, The Lying Game, and The Death of Mrs. Westaway. These books transport you to another place and, if just for a moment, allow you to forget the world around you.” -Meredith
7. This one will make you say woah “Becoming Supernatural. Meditating allows you to access the quantum field outside the time space continuum letting you control your future.” -Alicia
And a funny comment from a new mom, who just got promoted to a new high-profile job: “One day I’ll have time to read again, right???” -Diane (yes, you will!!)
