I am an independent certified health coach. My goal is to learn & grow my knowledge...but I also enjoy some "fluff" fictional books too

    Just as Alix Madsen is finishing up architectural school, Adelaide Kingsley dies and wills her, for one year, the use of a charming 19th-century Nantucket house. The elderly woman's relationship to the Madsen family is a mystery to the spirited Alix - fresh from a romantic breakup - but for reasons of her own, Alix accepts the quirky bequest, in part because it gives her time to plan her best friend's storybook wedding.

    91 year-old Ira Levinson is kept concious after a car wreck by visions of his late wife, Ruth, who recounts stories of their lifetime together. A few miles away, at a local rodeo, Sophia Danko, a senior at Wake Forest, meets a young cowboy named Luke. Ira and Ruth. Sophia and Luke. Two couples who have little in common. Yet their lives will converge with unexpected poignancy, reminding us all that even the most difficult decisions can yield extraordinary journeys: beyond despair, beyond death, to the farthest reaches of the human heart.

    Story

    This is a typical Nicolas Sparks book, he always makes me cry. This one, although emotional, was not quite the tear jerker as his previous books.

    The storyline was pretty predictable but was enjoyable to hear how the story played out. I enjoyed the two story lines and how they became connected in the end. I could do without the music between chapters, however. I also enjoyed the two different narrators and they did an excellent job.

    I would recommend this book, especially if you have enjoyed Nicholas Sparks previous work.

  • Start: Punch Fear in the Face, Escape Average, and Do Work That Matters

    There are only two paths in life: average and awesome. The average path is easy because all you have to do is nothing. The awesome path is more challenging, because things like fear only bother you when you do work that matters. The good news is Start gives listeners practical, actionable insights to be more awesome, more often.

    Story

    Usually when authors read their books, it ends up to be a dull read. Jon Acuff had such enthusiasm and read quite naturally. I don't think anyone could have done a better job reading this book.

    I happened to love this book, but I can see how people would either love it or hate it. His confidence does come off a little bit conceited. I didn't agree with his idea that you shouldn't have a life purpose but I did agree that you should live each day WITH purpose.

    The author gave some good ideas of being extraordinary but I wish he would have talked more about "punching fear in the face".

    All in all, I would recommend this book.

    You’ve got a business colleague who’s hostile...a client who’s furious...a staffer who’s deeply cynical—how do you get people to do what you want in tough situations like these? In Just Listen, veteran psychiatrist and business coach Mark Goulston reveals the secret to how to get through to anyone, even when productive communication seems impossible.“Here's the challenge,” Mark says.

    Story

    This is one of my favorite self-development books! This author gave you practical methods to effectively communicate with others.

    I enjoyed the part about being "interested" and not "interesting", showing interest in other people and making them feel "felt".

    I was worried that this book may be too technical & boring since it was written by a psychiatrist. I was pleasantly surprised that it was very interesting. The author expressed excellent strategies to use along with good examples of conversations. These will be very useful in everyday situations. I am currently listening to the book a second time (hoping that I can remember everything).

    If you would like to learn how to effectively communicate with people, you should definitely get this book!
