It’s been a hot minute since I’ve shared everything I’m currently reading with you! These are such fun posts to write, and make me aware of all the books I’m in the middle of, which is more than I realized (story of my life). Anyways, these are all the books I’m currently in the middle of:
The Moment of Lift – I picked this book up as a whim recently, and flew through the first half. I’m really loving reading Melinda Gates talk about her philanthropy and her life. I was a little wary going in about how white savior-y the book would be, but it’s nothing like I thought it would be. Gates acknowledges that we can’t force other cultures to change to fit what we (Westerners) think is “right”.
Intuitive Eating – I started this book a couple months ago and still haven’t finished it, and I honestly don’t know why. I’m really enjoying it, and learning a lot from it, but it’s not the book I’m currently gravitating towards.
Dr. Strange Beard – I love the Winston brothers, and I’m so excited to be reading Roscoe’s story. I’m like five chapters in, and enjoying it, but reading a book or two before I get back to it because I don’t want to fly through this series too quickly.
The Great Pretender – I was super excited to choose this as my BOTM in November, and quickly picked it up once it arrived. I am unfortunately not enjoying it. I might give this book another chapter or two before I decide to officially DNF if, but I’ve decided that I’m not going to read nonfiction books about thearpy/mental health (not counting memoris) that aren’t written by mental health professionals.
Into the Dark – I’m like 50% into this book and really enjoying it, but had to set it down because it deals with a lot of heavy subject matter. It’s good and I think it’s done well and in a respectful way, but I have to continuously take breaks from reading it just because it’s a lot.
The Best Thing – Another book I’ve had on my list for quite a while. I’m slowly but surely making my way through this. I found out about Mariana Zapata this year, and have loved reading her books, but there’s something about this one that just isn’t holding my interest. I do like the story, but I’m just not connecting with it like I’ve connected with the other book of hers that I’ve read.
