Reading List

I have a 1 hour commute to and from work (yes, 2 hours every day – Monday through Friday). So as you can imagine, audiobooks have been a life saver. In just the last few months, I’ve gone through 6 books and can’t wait to ‘read’ more throughout the year. Here’s a quick recap of each of my most recent reads:

Winning Reads: 

Believe Bigger: Leadership and personal development with a healthy splash of Christian scripture, Daniels guides you through the process of discovering your true purpose on earth.

Girl, Wash Your Face:One of the most well-written self-help books for women that I’ve found. Rachel dispels the myths about her seemingly perfect life and her tips for overcoming hardship.

When Breath Becomes Air: A doctor takes you on his personal journey battling cancer and the meaning of life.

The Art of Work: Great for purpose-seekers unsure about what their life’s work should be. You also get access to some great self-help tools with the purchase of this book.

The Subtle Art: Ah, one of the best books I’ve read in a while. This book sifts through today’s rat race toward “success” to help you discover the real way to peace.

Where’d You Go, Bernadette: Fun fiction about the wacky yet unyielding mother-daughter bond between Bee Branch and her mom, Bernadette who is struggling to balance motherhood and mental/emotional health.

Deep Work: Learn how all the great minds of history tapped into their potential along with strategies for getting your dreams to become reality.

Runner-Ups: 

The Yamas & Niyamas: this book guides the ethical practice of yoga. Comprised of 8 limbs, most people only know about or practice the physical poses and disregard the lifestyle practices that really make yoga.

Crazy Rich Asians: Fun, fictional love story about the luxurious lifestyle of Singapore’s most wealthy. Nice break from my usual, very serious reading.

High Performance Habits: Very practical tips on how to get (the right) things done.

Little Fires Everywhere: Fictional story of how Mia and her daughter Pearl move in and shake up the very quiet neighborhood of Shaker Heights and the lives of the Richardson family.

Honorable Mentions: 

A Gentleman in Moscow

Rich 20-Something: Great handbook for aspiring entrepreneur looking for tips on how to get your business off the ground.

The Desire Map: Digs passed traditional goal-setting to find the heart of what motivates us.

LeadershipFlow: Learn how communication in the workplace can make or break great talent.

The Four Agreements

Evolution of Goddess: Discover your goddess archetype and lifestyle tips for harnessing your divine feminine power.

The 5 Second Rule: A simple tool that can break the cycle of fear, doubt, stress, and anxiety.

The Power of Now
