Checking In and Books

Hello internet! It has definitely been awhile since I've blogged. To be honest, it has been a crazy few months with work, various nonprofit organization I'm involved with and getting into some reading ruts. Not to mention, traveling multiple weekends in a row. To the point that when I have a hot second, all I want to do is watch Netflix and not think (read as either watching Criminal Minds, Psych or Friends). So today I'm checking in and sharing a few books with all of you!

First - I have my copy of The Cursed Child. I have not read it yet - only because I know that I will crush it in a few hours and I'm not ready for it to be over. It is my next read (after the current book I'm reading).

Brown, Brene. 2012.
Current read - Daring Greatly by Brene Brown. Yes this is different than most books I typically read. I'm part of an organization called thrive, and we're creating a few different experiences at the Cuyahoga County Public Library starting in September. The first book on our list is this one. So far it is a great read regarding courage and vulnerability - getting us to think of it in a different way. I definitely recommend it (also shameless plug to check on the library's social media for information on our upcoming events).

The Perfect Husband by Lisa Gardner - this was most definitely an Amazon recommendation. But since Amazon hasn't disappointed me thus far, I'm excited for this read. Tess ends up putting her husband behind bars for murdering ten women. Oh did I mention that her husband is a decorated cop? After vowing that he would make her pay for putting him behind bars, he has escaped. Tess teams up with an ex-marine and an FBI profiler to fight back and catch this guy. She knows it is kill or be killed.

I really want to start reading True Crime novels. Yes they'd be totally creepy, but I love those types of shows so I can imagine that I would enjoy the books. Anyone have any recommendations on a good one to start with? I'd love to hear it!
