The Life-Changing Magic of Tidying Up: The Japanese Art of Decluttering and Organizing by Marie Kondō

My rating: 5 of 5 stars


This took me a long time to read – there was a lot to unpack. I love the idea of treating our clothes as if they had ‘feelings’ and wanted a special place to ‘rest’ – I have noticed when I do that little ‘thank you for keeping me warm today’ thing when I put a sweater back in the drawer I tend to (feel silly, yes) but also take better care of it. It’s strange. This is one of those books where you won’t apply every single principle to your life, (I will always have more than 30 books) but the one or two things you do take away becomes a part of your daily life. I think that’s amazing. It’s a NYT best seller for a reason.

Tiny Beautiful Things: Advice on Love and Life from Dear Sugar by Cheryl Strayed

My rating: 5 of 5 stars


This book was a gift from a new friend who knows me probably better than most people get a chance to. And I loved it so much. I cried, I cried so much and I laughed and I wondered how a world as crazy as ours can produce writers and humans with such heart and passion. I ordered another copy to send to Kait back home in Canada. And I have a new model for how to live an authentic, empathetic life where maybe I can make the world a little bit better from the words that I write. #WorldChanger.

An American Sunrise: Poems by Joy Harjo

My rating: 5 of 5 stars


Amazing collection of poems alive with fire and blood and passion. I would recommend getting this on audible so you can hear her narrate in her own voice. This will make you cry, and think, and feel. These words will make you a more compassionate, empathetic human. That’s not too bad for one small poetry book.
