New & Notable
I took a mini break after realizing that I was experiencing some type of block when it comes to reading and writing my reviews for the blog. I decided I needed to spend some time with God just to make sure I was still on the right path. And man, am I glad I did that. I was able to start and create over 20 posts to release for the blog. I’m excited for two (maybe even three) series that I will be launching later this year. For now, it’s a secret but here is a hint for two: they combine reading and growth.
I’ve also started to share in my Instagram and Facebook stories the free book deals that I get daily. The genres range from Romance, Self Help, Business and Christian. You can download using Amazon Kindle or Apple Books. They normally only last a day so make sure you check them out and download them if you think they sound like a good read.
The Artist’s Way by Julia Cameron
This review was a long time coming. But I finally got it done! Now the real work begins. As I mentioned in the post, the book is formated as a 12-week course. So I plan on starting today with writing my morning pages and going on my artist dates. Cameron does recommend that you keep the morning pages to yourself but I will share what I can over on Instagram and Facebook.
The review was crazy for me to write. This was an audiobook that I listened to on a roadtrip. I didn’t expect a lot of notes but when I had so many opinions, I turned to my voice memo app. Listening to my voice while typing out my notes was weird. But I got it done. Finally. This was an amazing book that was unexpected.
I skipped a week with doing this meme so I doubled up with this one. I walked through 20 books from my TBR list and made decisions on if I was keeping them or removing them from the list.
What We Are Watching
My husband and I watched both seasons of this (20 episodes) over the past few weeks. It was a hilarious show for the most part with some serious issues sprinkled in. Now the part that I hate, we have to wait for the next season.
We also watched the first season of this show (5 episodes). I’m not sure what the plans are for future seasons but it was an excellent show. What I enjoyed about it was the behind the scenes into what this process and what the criminal justice system does on someone’s mental health. Good news for Meek is that his case was officially closed this week. This nightmare is over for him but his bringing awareness to the problem is just starting.
Tools of Titans by Tim Ferriss –Honestly, this is the only book that I have been actively reading while on my break. I think it’s because of how it’s presented with each titan having a couple of pages. So it’s almost like I’m reading a quick snapshot of each one instead of a book.
All of the other books I’ve started and just haven’t been able to finish are currently on hold. It’s been a while so I am going to have to start them from the beginning anyway. Feel free to click the Rhenae’s Recap tag below to see them. If they haven’t moved to Finished Reading, they are on hold ;).
