Although some stuff seems repetitive & from her past books, Brene Brown is always amazing.
This book is essential reading for management or any leaders, to be successful & have a happy team/company/employees etc.

Man's Search for Meaning | Viktor Emil Frankl, Harold S. Kushner, William J. Winslade

Beautiful. Deep.
Particularly loved how it delved into the psychological aspects of being in a concentration camp & human suffering & our ability to mentally (& physically) overcome even the most horrible things.

My latest birthday book haul!
I‘ve been on this search to find/read books that have changed peoples lives. Deep, meaningful books that when someone asks “What book have you read that changed your life?” you can definitely answer.
I‘ve read thousands of books. Really amazing ones. But I‘m sad that I have yet to find one that when someone asks me that question I can immediately answer.
If anyone has rec‘s please let me know! I‘m hungry!!

I‘m at chapter 22 & having a hard time sticking with this one! I‘ve heard so many amazing things about this book, & I‘ve wanted to read it for years, but it‘s pretty slow right now.
Is it worth it guys?!?

Men Without Women | Haruki Murakami
Pickpick

Murakami writes great short stories, but whenever I read them after one of his novels I feel a bit cheated or shorted after finishing one. I think because right at the point where I start to become invested & interested in a character, the story ends, sometimes abruptly.

Killing Commendatore | Haruki Murakami

Pickpick

Wow! I didn‘t know what to expect from Murakami‘s newest novel. I wasn‘t really blown away by “Colorless Tsukuru” & I‘ve been more fond of his earlier works. But I absolutely loved Killing Commendatore!!! It reminded me a little of 1Q84, another Murakami favorite of mine, but with more character building that really had me loving the characters, especially Menshiki.

Cathythoughts It was my first experience of this author ... loved it. Looking forward to reading more 4mo

A Little Life: A Novel | Hanya Yanagihara

Got to the point in this book where I cannot put it down! So incredibly emotional , raw, touching. The way Yanagihara describes Jude‘s feelings & emotions leaves one to think that some kind of personal experience led to such psychological realism.

Probably one of the best, funniest, & most honest self-help style books I've ever read! It took me longer to finish it because I kept stopping to jot down quotes I liked, & there was a ton!

Loved this book! Should be required reading in this day & age.

Any book that starts with the sentence "Well f$@&." earns my attention!! LOL! As a modern Buddhist, I've struggled with finding books & Buddhist authors that speak to me, that are down to earth, & real. This man is that. He is funny, deep, compassionate & intelligent. Each one of his books portrays this. This book isn't just for the heartbroken in love, but in life, career, family, society, etc. Our heart breaks in many different ways & reasons.

Almost done with this one! I love a book that gets you to love & care about all the characters (regardless of "good" or "evil") & keeps you hanging on everything they do or say. Bardugo has done a great job of this. I think my favorite character so far is Inej! Can't wait to start part 2!

Big Sur | Jack Kerouac

This is my second Kerouac book & I don't know how I feel about it quite yet. I find his writing style sometimes difficult to follow, w/ run on sentences & incoherent babble. I'm taking into account the fact he was piss drunk 1/2 the time, lol! Love to hear people's thoughts/reviews!! Chime in!
