As much as I love to read I haven’t done my best to stay on top of reading in the last year. However, in the last year, I’ve also made it so I am more intentional in my life and self-care. I speak often about refueling and recharging and for as long as I can remember reading has been my escape. When I was a kid I can easily remember escaping into books like Harry Potter, The Baby-Sitters Club and a slew of James Patterson Women’s Murder Club Series. I decided to pick 6 books every six weeks that I can dedicate my time to reading, here are my fall books.

The Sun Does Shine is an extraordinary testament to the power of hope sustained through the darkest times.
