Taking a few minutes to look over my reading list for 2015 (see that list here) and prepare for an exciting year of learning in 2016. Did you have a reading list for last year? How'd ya do? I got through 11 of my 15...I've been pretty out of commission the past three months with Baby O so I kinda fell off the reading bandwagon the end of the year. I'm ready to jump back on this year, with a little more realistic expectation I think. I did read almost 15 books, I just happened to add a few in that weren't on the list. :) Of the 4 I did not get to, I'm moving 2 of them on to 2016. I lent both of these out this year, so I'll use that as my excuse of why I didn't get to them! For 2016, I plan to read the following...and I'm hoping to find a few more good parenting books to read before Baby O's arrival in July.
Here's what's on my list so far:
What's going on in a man's mind? From their early days, every woman has struggled to understand why males behave the way they do. Even long-married women who think they understand men have only scratched the surface. Beneath a man's rugged exterior is an even more rugged, unmapped terrain. What bestselling author Shaunti Feldhahn's research reveals about the inner lives of men will open women's eyes to what the men in their life - boyfriends, brothers, husbands, and sons - are really thinking and feeling. Men want to be understood, but they're afraid to "freak out" the women they love by confessing what is happening inside their heads. This book will guide women in how to provide the loving support that modern men want and need.
