Suggested Reads for Spring Break

For some people down here it’s already Spring Break. Which is funny because it’s rained the last 72 hours. Anyway, I thought I’d compile a list of books for you all to read even though most of you are well past the age of being out of school this week. Might as well get to the list since I’m already a day late.

Just kidding.

If you’ve been reading my blog for any amount of time, then you know that I don’t recommend books. Ever. I could refer you to this post from last week. Or I could refer you to this one from last year. No matter what’s going on, I won’t be suggesting any books. BUT this is one of those rare times during the year that I’ll make an exception to my rule of not taking any suggestions. Although I have no idea what would qualify as a good book to read for Spring Break. I’m sure some of y’all know. Maybe.

So, which books should I be reading this week?

On this day in 2014 I published Spring Break for the Book Lover.

  1. I actually just wrote about a couple of books on my blog last week. Thinking they would be good Spring Break reads.

    And uh, really, I wasn’t you know….’suggesting’ people read them or anything. I was sort of just, you know… ‘talking pleasantly” about them. And that post today of mine? Well….. that was sort of the exception to the rule…. 🙂


  2. I’m new to your blog, so I audibly laughed at the tail of your first paragraph. I was looking forward to your suggestions.

    Four books that altered the way I live my life. Wild Mind by Natalie Goldberg. She taught me how to give myself permission to write raw, write real, and write regularly – a habit I attribute to saving my life more than once. Ishmael by Daniel Quinn because it gave my mind a place to go while inspiring my soul to become something more. The Celestine Prophecy by James Redfield because it used fiction to show me the invisible threads weaving all things together. And last, but perhaps most important, Conversations with God by Neale Donald Walsh. It’s actually a fiction trilogy, Conversations with God, but the first book is the one that grew me from a child to a woman allowing me to define God by my own terms instead of the terms of existing religions or opinionated people.

    I don’t believe in “you should”, so I won’t recommend that you read any or all of them, but these are the kinds of readings that, if allowed, will crawl up in your soul and make a home there.
