Oof... I had to read this for work and, truth be told, I did not finish it. I‘ve never NOT finished a ‘required‘ book before, so this was a rough day. 😅 But, it seems that the general agreement tonight was this is a tedious & confusing read through the first 3/4 of the book - if you made it to the end it was worth the trip. I am almost convinced it will be worth it to pick it up and push through. But for now I‘ve bailed. #bookswithbohemianyogini

I couldn‘t put this down. A deeply moving and heart-wrenching piece of fiction that speaks just as loudly through what isn‘t printed on the pages. I am still processing the ending and want to know what other people think!! Ahh! #bookswithbohemianyogini #mustread

The Water Cure | Sophie Mackintosh

Pickpick

Mackintosh‘s writing is hypnotic and introspective. She evocatively paints the psychological effects of isolation and abuse disguised as love and culture, and the complex relationships between the sisters who must endure life on the isolated island their parents brought them to for safety. 3.5/5 📖 #bookswithbohemianyogini

Mehso-so

I wanted a change of pace from all of the non-fiction I have been reading recently & I was not disappointed. I found myself skimming through the middle, but the short chapters make it easy to pick up and set down, & the fast-paced story telling kept me guessing (incorrectly) until the end. I was skeptical at first that this would be your typical who-done-it story, but was delightfully surprised in the end. 3/5 stars.

Educated: A Memoir | Tara Westover
post image
Pickpick

If you enjoy an intimate glimpse into an unconventional childhood & a heroine who overcomes a number of life-changing external & conflicts, Westover‘s “Educated” is a must read. Westover‘s usage of diary entries to counter the memories she has does an excellent job of showing the complexities of human memory & how easy it is to edit painful memories as self-defense against traumatic incidents. 📖

Woah. Taking a breath and coming up for air from my laptop & work. 💻🐳 Another required read for my yoga teacher training; only a few pages in, but I am really diggin‘ the voice of the author and the unflinching realness of her intro. Cannot wait to finish my work (from home today) so I can crack this back open. 🖤

Thought-provoking, well-researched, and deeply-stirring. Nepo does a superb job highlighting how people throughout history time and time again come together in pure demonstrations of community, and just how necessary a communal mindset is for the health of the future. It‘s a slow one for me; I find myself rereading sections to try and glean as much understanding as possible. Very humbling, highly recommend. 📖 #bookswithbohemianyogini

It‘s nice to step back and step into basics again. A thoughtful way of looking at life and interactions between self and others. ✨

34 pages in and I‘m hooked. It feels like a not-too-distant option of where society could end up. If you‘re a fan of Atwood or Orwell you should deff add “Vox” to your must-read list! 📚

“He did not think of himself as a tourist; he was a traveler. The difference is partly one of time, he would explain. Whereas the tourist generally hurries back home at the end of a few weeks or months, the traveler, belonging no more to one place than to the next, moves slowly, over periods of years, from one part of earth to another.”

I had a rocky time with this book... moving from being unimpressed to finally being sort of won over at the end. In my opinion, this is a fun fluffy beach-read with a kick. There aren‘t any Earth-Shattering or Ultra-Original ideas... but there are important topics that are explored from all levels of Feminism/Humanity. I LOVE Wolitzer‘s style, it was a very fun read, & I found myself intimately relating to her beautifully crafted characters.

The Five Love Languages of Children | Gary D. Chapman, Ross Campbell
post image

Recently I‘ve started to nanny 3 kids under 8 yrs old and it‘s been a blast! But it‘s also been an intense learning experience since I was an only child growing up. I‘ve snagged a few books recommended by coworkers & I am thoroughly impressed by this book & the ease with which it explains the 5 Love Languages from a child‘s perspective. The more I know, the better I can help the minis develop into healthy & happy humans!

This was a fun and fast-paced read that kept me on the edge of my seat the entire time. I felt like I was watching a movie the entire time I was reading, which made the book hard to put down! IS THE WORLD DOOMED OR NOT?!? 😱🤣 I highly recommend this to any Sci-fi/fantasy fans whom want a page-turning thriller to keep them occupied!

This book is an extremely objective look at all sides of the situation: patients, hospital staff, rescue/relief efforts, and corporate employees, and how everyone‘s efforts ultimately impacted the loss of life in the hospital. Sherri Fink did a superb job demonstrating the un-preparedness of the hospital without placing the blame on any one group.

Had to give up though, it just couldn‘t hold my attention, and there are too many titles waiting.

WOW. I am blown away by the first 60 pages of this book. This is a very sad, eye-opening, glimpse into the world of multiple personalities, and the trauma that can trigger the dissociation.
