June 2021 books

Books I read in June:

Wolf Pack by Abby Wambach

Abby Wambach is a 2 time olympic Gold Medalist an a FIFA World cup champion, this book is based off of a Barard’s College 2018 Commencement speech that went viral.  In this book, Abby outlines 8 new rules of leadership- Wolfpack rules. These rules will help unleash women’t individual power, which in turn will empower and inspire women to live a life that isn’t about staying small and passive, but how to harness your inner strength and band together with your team.

Greenlights by Matthew McConaughey 

Matthew McConaughey is an actor and obviously very well known. I will tell you that I did not know him at all, before reading this book. This book was very entertaining. I found myself thinking and saying out loud many times- how can this be real life! He uses these amazing and interesting things that have happened in his life to be reflective, all the things in his life have brought him to “green lights”, which have been great things and opportunities. I really recommend listening to this book, Matthew himself reads it, and having his voice tell it was definitely worth it. ****see below on a great way to listen to books (Libby App or Audibooks)

The House We Grew Up In by Lisa Jewell

Lisa Jewell is a brilliant writer. I have now read a few of her books and she has a way of pulling you in to a story that takes twists and turns. You aren’t quite sure where the characters are going to end up, but it’s going to be unexpected. This book is about a family who due to some unfortunate events, live a very hard and difficult life for many years. There are multiple story lines that are going on that all end up connecting.

Set Boundaries, Find Peace by Nedra Glover Tawwab

I became a fan of Nedra Glover Tawwab through Instagram. Her posts bring a perspective that is helpful in navigating life. She teaches us how to set boundaries and why they are so important. This book my friend and I are reading 1 chapter a week and then meeting together to do the activity at the end of the chapter. So this book will be on my monthly list for a while. It is really nice to be able to take it slow and really process. I think everyone can benefit from reading this book. Learning to set boundaries in your life can really impact stress, anxiety and feelings of resentment.

How to find time to read:

What we make a priority, is what happens in our life. Finding time to read can be tricky, it is easy for it to get low priority and have a million other things come up. Here are my top 5 ways to find more time to read.

  1. Read before bed, even if it’s only for 15 minutes
  2. Taking a book with you, and when waiting for something,  pullout your book and read. ( ex. waiting for kids in the carpool line, waiting in line at the DMV, while in the waiting room at the doctor’ office)
  3. Join my book club group! Each month we read a book and discuss it at the end of the month.  Having that motivation that other people are depending on you to finish the book helpful 🙂
  4. If you are traveling, make sure you bring a book or 2 with you
  5. Instead of getting on social media, reach for a book. Tracking how much time is spent on social media or our phones, can be pretty eyeopening. It’s a great way to find time to do things that you want to do but don’t think you have the time!
