2016 Reading List | Chaotic Reads

One of my major goals for this year was to read more. There’s so many books sitting on my bookshelf that I have yet to read and what better time to do it than now. There’s so much content coming to the blog, but I wanted to share my 2016 reading list and once I’m done reading a book I’ll be sharing my thoughts/highlights along with whether it’s worth the read or not. Let’s call this series ‘Chaotic Reads.’

I have eight books on my list so far for this year, six of which have been collecting dust on my bookshelf. Below are the full titles and links to the books:

The books are not listed in the order that I plan o reading them although I will be starting with LaLa’s Playbook. I’m not putting a start or end date on any of the books, I just want to read them all. It’d be great to read the six that I do own by the summer and then during July and August read #GirlBoss and #YesPlease. That’s a huge goal for me being that I haven’t actually sat down to read a book in quite some time. I read a lot online, but other than that I’ve been a huge slacker.

Aside from the books collecting dust on my shelf, I feel that the books on this list are the motivation and positivity that I need. I have a lot I’d like to accomplish this year being that I’ll be 25 in October. I don’t want another year to pass me by while I’m still stuck. The culmination of these books are beyond the typical novels people may read. I’m all about gaining something from the information I obtain.

Stay tuned for my ‘Chaotic Reads’ series where I’ll be sharing my highlights of the books along with whether they were worth reading or not. Also be sure to click the links above to purchase the books featured.

Sunday Rant (V.12): Summer Reads 2014

I’ve been wanting to get back into reading and the eight books above are just a snippet of what I hope to read this summer. I’ve been having the  Nice Girls’ Don’t Get the Corner Office on my shelf for nearly a year now yet I never picked it up to read it. I’ve also has Joyce Meyer’s, Battlefield of the Mind, yet I hadn’t read that one either. Those two are first up on my reading list. Welp, with this new mindset I have each one of these books adds a little something to the direction I’m going. As for The Fault in Our Stars, after watching COUNTLESS interviews about the movie it’s clear that it’s a must read and before I watch the movie I do want to read the book everyone has been raving about. Chicken Soup for the Soul books have always been a favorite of mine and I love that it’s a whole bunch of stories rolled into one book. This time around I’m reading about grieving and making the best out of a bad situation. I didn’t want to really read Steve Harvey’s Think Like a Man saga, but this one about success caught my eye. When it comes to love, I’ve been really wanting to read Manology and La La’s The Love Playbook. Let’s see how long it takes me to get throughout everything.
