What I Read in February 2016

I've been jumping around from book to book all month, but managed to finish three in February. 

Spark Joy by Marie Kondo--review here.

While it's a very short book at 65 pages, I totally loved the message in We Should All Be Feminists and highly recommend it! Some of her points were not new to me, but I think reading them again was worth it. 

I enjoyed Drew Barrymore's book Wildflower. I've been a fan of hers since I saw E.T. I enjoyed learning more about her life in general and lessons learned from the many challenges she had to overcome. 

I've been listening to Jewel's book and loving it so far. I've always been a fan of her music and I can relate to a lot of aspects of her childhood. I particularly like her voice and find that to be another positive aspect of the audio book. I find that if I don't like the speaker's voice, I can't listen to an audio book and back it goes to the library right away. I'm looking forward to finishing Jewel's story during my commute to work. 

It's funny because I listen to Anne Bogel's "What Should I Read Next?" podcast and she observes reading genre patterns among the people she interviews for the show. Now I am observing that I tend to like nonfiction books by female authors. 

Any recommendations from the books you've been reading or listening to lately?
