I recently took a look at my bookshelf and realized that I definitely don’t read as many books as I purchase. (Anyone else out there a self-proclaimed book collector?!) I’ve always loved reading, however something has always taken precedence over it, most recently graduate school and wedding planning. Now that I have more free time I’ve decided to make some reading goals.
Here are the books I want to read up this fall…
Voluntary Madness: I work in mental health so am looking forward to this one a lot. It’s about a woman who committed herself to three different facilities and faked having mental health struggles. It sheds new light on healthcare from a unique perspective.
The Gifts of Imperfection: Brene Brown is someone I have found to admire in my recent work, though have not actually read any of her books in full. She performed qualitative studies on the positive power of shame and guilt. This book is all about accepting yourself as you are, which is something I believe in for everyone.
Key West in History: On our trip to Key West this summer, my mom purchased this book and I’m so happy she lent it to me! Granted, it would have likely been more helpful to read prior to the trip, but I’m happy to read through it and reflect on the amazing time that we had.
