Check out the books that have either inspired, entertained or did both for us.
1. The Courage to Be Disliked by Fumitake Koga and Ichiro Kishimi | PHILOSOPHICAL
This book was recommended in a Psychology meet-up a few years back and it truly helped inch me closer to a place of complete self-acceptance. At times the words are fluffy, but the message clear: Keep living for the approval of others or begin to live with the acceptance from yourself. This book has many markings as the lessons are many. I recommend this book to anyone who is not shy of un-peeling another layer of themselves. Side note: This book is written in a dialogue format, so it might not be for everyone. - Pamela
2. The Girl on the Train by Paula Hawkins | THRILLER
Well written and a precisely plotted psychological thriller. A great suspenseful story of a disappearance and murder. Sometimes I found myself having to flip back and forth to figure out the mystery. I couldn't put it down because things were happening so quickly and I just needed to know more. - Ilze
3. Apropos of Nothing by Woody Allen | AUTOBIOGRAPHY
The wit, the humor, the details about New York City from the 1950's until today. It's fascinating to read about Woody's rise to fame and the plummet that ensued following the Mia Farrow scandal. The whole book is insightful, incredibly entertaining and smart funny. - Pamela
4. The Mister by E.L.James | CONTEMPORARY ROMANCE
This refreshing, gorgeous book will captivate you. The characters are believable and emotionally lfilled with an interesting story that is entertaining. Unlike the Fifty Shades series, The Mister is over-the-top romantic, with lots of physical but emotionally deep love scenes. Keep an open mind and enjoy! - Ilze
