Fall Reading List

I've done book posts in the past here and here and they are typically reviews of books I've already read. This time I thought I would share what is on my list to read! Between download books for my trip last month and the ones I've ordered, I have quite a list to get thru over the next few months.

Image result for confidence creator

Confidence Creator by Heather Monahan - In the middle of listening to the Author on the Lady Gang podcast, I ordered her book. Her point of view and philosophy on career and life were refreshing. I'm not a fan of all self-help books but this one seems to be the kind for me. She uses personally anecdotes of both success and failures in her life to make her points across. 

Cravings: Hungry for More by [Teigen, Chrissy, Sussman, Adeena]

Cravings Hungry for More by Chrissy Teigen - I know, I know... this is a cookbook, why should it be included on a reading list. Well if you are a fan of Chrissy Teigen, you know her cookbook would be more than just recipes. I just got this book in the mail and I've started to read the stories and anecdotes that she includes with each recipe. I've also picked out the first few recipes I need to make ASAP. 

The Wedding Date by [Guillory, Jasmine]

The Wedding Date by Jasmine Guillory - This would be defined as the perfect beach read but since Fall is here let's call it the perfect curl up by a fireplace read. After getting stuck in an elevator a guy asks the girl to accompany her to a wedding the next day. Could one fun night really evolve into anything more? 

Who Thought This Was a Good Idea?: And Other Questions You Should Have Answers to When You Work in the White House by [Mastromonaco, Alyssa]

Who Thought This Was a Good Idea by Lauren Oyler, Alyssa Mastromonaco - No matter your political views, it is fascinating to see what goes on behind the scenes working for a politician. The Author worked for Barack Obama for over a decade. She was the deputy Chief of Staff to Obama when he was President. The book is  supposed to have lots of never before told stories.

Good Luck with That by [Higgins, Kristan]

Good Luck with That by Kristan Higgins - Three women have been friends since they met in High School at weight loss camp. When one tragically passes away, the other two try to tackle their insecurities. I've heard this book deals with body image and self acceptance without being a self help book. 

Beneath a Scarlet Sky: A Novel by [Sullivan, Mark]

Beneath a Scarlet Sky by Mark Sullivan - I've read countless novels and biographies from the WWII time period. This one is based on a true story and is going to be a television event soon. The protagonist becomes a double agent for the Allies after he is appointed the driver for one of the top Nazi commanders.
