The books in my life appear everywhere: on the shelves of my office, nightstand and purse. I travel with books since the privilege and opportunity to read welcomes me in the most unexpected moments. Here is what is currently on my bookshelf and a few books that I’ve read this past month:

After This: When Life is Over, Where Do We go?  by Claire Bidwell Smith

Everything You Ever Wanted:  by Jillian Lauren

The Road to Character by David Brooks

Recipes for a Beautiful Life: A Memoir in Stories by Rebecca Barry 

The Girl on the Train by Paula Hawkins 

The Husband’s Secret by Liane Moriarty 

The Signature of All Things by Elizabeth Gilbert

What are you reading this month? I’d love to hear your recommendations.
