What I Read in August

I read a bunch of books this month and I book number five of August was book number 24 of 2018 which was my goal for the year!!  I am so excited that I reached this goal, I missed it by a few last year. 

1.  Minimalism - The Minimalists - I think I enjoyed the book more than I enjoyed the documentary by them that I watched last year (still streaming on Netflix I believe).  It is about eliminating all the extras so you can focus more on living a meaningful life.  It is not a long book and is a quick read but it left me with a lot of ideas and got me emptying 3 rubbermaid containers in my basement so that is a positive haha. 

2.  The Perfect Mother - This was the book club read for July but I didn't get it in time so I read it this month instead.  It was a weird book and it felt like 2 different books within one.  The ending shocked the shit out of me and made me rethink everything that I just read.  Apparently they are also making it into a movie too.  This I will have to see!

3.  Girl, Wash Your Face - Rachel Hollis - I cannot even tell you how much this book has changed my life.  I think I might write a blog post just on this book alone or maybe do a chapter each week or something.  It is amazing and if you haven't read it yet, you should really get on it. 

4.  New Minimalism - Cary Telander Fortin + Kyle Louise Quilici - This book was a hybrid between minimalism and lagom.  Some of the chapters were really interesting and some were pretty boring.  I struggle between being to minimal and having some character so I (think) I gained a lot from it. 

5.  A Simplified Life - Emily Ley - Again, the first 2 chapters were fantastic and I learned a lot but I kinda tuned out for the rest of the book.  

6.  Joyous Detox - Joy McCarthy - she is one of my favorite people to follow on twitter and i love that she is Canadian too.  I don't think I would have do a detox but she made some interesting points and I do have some new recipes to try out too.
