Sorry – I’m Booked Posted On 22 November 2021

Take some Time for You

Reading can feel like a luxury. It expands our imagination, improves our memory, and can act as a magical key to other worlds. But, let’s face it, we’re all busy, juggling work, school, family, and friends and reading is often one of the first activities to be shelved.

When we read is also important. Research shows that adults are better off reading non-fiction in the morning. Reading in the morning can reduce stress, increase creativity, and improve communication skills.

For some people, reading before bed helps them fall asleep. If you want to read to help you drift off, then this is a great tactic. The bright lights of a phone will keep you up and distract your brain, so reading an old-fashioned book is a better choice.

Knowing when to read is just part of the puzzle. You also have to find books you want to read. Check out the list below for a little inspiration.

Finlay Donovan is Killing It – Ellie Cosimano

 – ‘Finlay Donovan Is Killing It’ is the first in a witty, fast-paced mystery series, following struggling suspense novelist and single mom Finlay Donovan, whose fiction treads dangerously close to the truth as she becomes tangled in real-life murder investigations.

Girls with Bright Futures – Tracy Dobmeier and Wendy Katzman

–  College admissions season at Seattle’s Elliott Bay Academy is marked by glowing acceptances from top-tier institutions, and students as impressive as their parents are ambitious. But when Stanford alerts the school it’s allotting only one spot to EBA for their incoming class, three mothers discover the competition is more cutthroat than they could have imagined.

Lore – Alexandra Bracken

– Every seven years, the Agon begins. As punishment for a past rebellion, nine Greek gods are forced to walk the earth as mortals, hunted by the descendants of ancient bloodlines, all eager to kill a god and seize their divine power and immortality. If you’re a fan of Greek mythology, this is definitely one to add to your list.
