Book Club: September + October

Book Club September and October 2016 >> Life In Limbo

I absolutely love to read, and I love to share the books I like best with other people. Every few months here on the blog I choose my favourites from what I’ve read lately and write about them. As always, you can see everything I’m reading on my Goodreads profile. You can also check out what I’m reading at #stephlovestoread on Instagram.

Life changes fast, man! When I wrote my last post in this series, life looked a lot different than it does today. Just a couple months later and I live in a new city, in my own apartment, and am learning new things every single day. During this big transition, I watched a lot of TV, but I also happily read some truly excellent books! Here are my faves from the past couple months.

Book Club: July & August

According to Goodreads, I’m 11 books behind on my reading challenge for 2016. That said, I am fairly sure that if I were to look back over the past few years, I’d find the same exact pattern of realizing that I was quite behind on my reading as summer comes to a close and the seasons change. Which is to say, I’m not too concerned.

The past few months have been busy for my work life, and kind of slow for my reading life. While I don’t wish it were the other way around necessarily, I do know I have been neglecting some of the habits and practices that make me feel most like myself, and that includes reading (and writing this blog). I was excited to get home to Canada and be living five minutes away from the public library, which always motivates me to read more!

Best Books of 2016 >> Life In Limbo

I absolutely love to read, and I love to share the books I like best with other people.

At the end of March, I was lucky enough to go away to a lodge in the jungle for a few days on my own. It was obviously incredible in so many ways, but one unexpected benefit was getting so much reading done – as in, a book a day. It really showed me how distracted I’ve been getting lately, and mostly by social media, as sad as that is. Getting to spend a few days with my nose in a book was total bliss and reminded me of how much I love reading. My phone wallpaper is still Read A Book Instead, but I need to start following that motto a bit more often.

That said! I still got to read a few really great books over the past few months. Here are my recent faves:
