Aubrey's Book Club: 5 Reads To Change Your Thinking

Wednesday, February 22, 2017

Hello babes! I low-key copied this idea from Free People's Blog, but that's okay. I'm excited to share 5 books that have challenged my way of thinking and have definitely changed my views on things. Hope you can get around to reading these someday and I hope you enjoy them as much as I do.

Here is my list:

Atlas Shrugged. Ayn Rand

Maybe you've heard of Ayn Rand or maybe you haven't, either way you should read this book. Atlas Shrugged is one of her most well-known publications and it is my absolute favorite. Ayn Rand caused me to question all my beliefs about the government and has turned me into somewhat of an objectivist. Read, read, read!

Run With The Horses. Eugene Peterson

Run With The Horses focuses in on the book of Jeremiah, one of my favorites. It talks a lot about meaning and purpose, which we all need to talk about. It's such an inspiring book and has really helped me realize that I am exactly where God wants me. Also has a little thing about intimate prayer, which changed my life so read it.

Looking For Alaska. John Green

If you like to cry over fictional characters, this one is for you. As a lot of you know, John Green likes to make his readers feel a lot of emotions all at once, and this book does exactly that. Looking For Alaska caused me to question what love actually is and how much effort it actually takes.

Before I Fall. Lauren Oliver

Yes, this book is being turned into a movie. No, I am not going to go see it. I appreciate books and I appreciate movies, but I do not appreciate books being turned into movies. This is one of those books that really gets you thinking about your life and whether not you are the living the right life. It makes you live everyday as if it's your last. Honestly, everyone should read this book.

Yes Please. Amy Poehler

When I was typing this book I almost put "Leslie Knope" as the author because her and Amy are the same person in my brain. This book taught me a lot of lessons and helped me realize that I should in fact say "yes" more. It also reminded me that we, as women, should stop apologizing for every single thing we do because we are so much bigger than that. Nothing we do is an accident! So worth the library trip or Amazon purchase.

Find sometime to pick up a book, maybe one of the 5 I listed. Make some time for your brain to work and for your body to relax.

xoxo, Aubs
