- The 12-Week Year* – One of my FAVORITE books. Increase your productivity, and get more done in a year, by creating a. 12-week year. I listen to this book almost every quarter to get into the 12-week year mindset. If you don’t read any other book on this list, READ THIS ONE. (Business, Non-Fiction)
- What I Told My Daughter – Stories from women of all diverse backgrounds who have stories to share with their daughters and the daughters all around the world. (Non-Fiction)

Books Read Dec 2018:
- The Book in Room 316 – Great book for those that believe in love, forgiveness, and second chances. (Fiction)

- Miss Jessie’s: Creating A Successful Business From Scratch – Creating A Successful Business From Scratch. If you have EVER wondered how much it takes to start a successful business, especially a product based business, you need to read this. (Business, Non-Fiction)
- From Here to Eternity – I only recommend this if you like or don’t mind reading about death, traditions, and other religions. This book was inspiring and made me wonder why America doesn’t honor their dead as much as other cultures. (Business, Non-Fiction)
- WorkParty– This book was decent, although there were parts where I was ready for it to be over. I think Jaclyn Johnson is an amazing and inspiring woman and business owner, but this book just seemed like it was lacking more of her uniqueness. (Business, Non-Fiction)
Books Read Jan 2019:
- Vicious – If you love reading stories about revenge, with a twist of the supernatural, you’ll love the first part of this series by V.E. Schwab. (Fiction)
- Vengeful – This is the second book in the Vicious series. All I can say is wow, and I didn’t believe what my eyes were reading. So many plot twists. (Fiction)
- The Lean Startup – Decent book, although I do personally believe that it could’ve been condensed. However, it’s a great read if you ever want to have a company vs. be a solopreneur. (Business, Non-Fiction)
- Murder on the Orient Express – This book reminds me of the movie Clue, but so much better. A classic whodunit. (Fiction)
- The Rosie Project – This was such a sweet and cute book! It follows the main character, a professor with autism, on his journey to find the “perfect” wife. I found the main character witty, funny, and just downright clueless about females, which really added to my love for him and wanting him to find his soulmate. (Fiction)
- The 4-Hour Workweek – Although I respect Tim Ferris and what he’s done in his industry, this was just okay. He had some great tips on productivity, but to me, it seemed that the book was directed towards people who wanted an “escape” from their jobs or businesses. I’m not one of those people. However, it was a decent read. (Business, Non-Fiction)
