Star’s Holiday Reading List

One of my favorite things about the holiday season – aside from delicious food, amazing bonding with family, and cozy sweaters – is having the time to sit down by the fire with a cup of hot chocolate and a good book!

A few books I am loving right now are:

Thrive by Arianna Huffington

Thrive

I love Ariana’s message in this book – though I’ll admit it is much harder to put into practice than it is to read about!  Thrive is about the importance of balance and personal fulfillment…and the realization that that is the true secret to success.

Give and Take by Adam Grant

Give and Take

This was one of my favorite books of the year – it describes people as either a giver, a taker, or a matcher.  Takers take as much as they can, givers give as much as their resources allow, and matchers try to “trade even” – never giving away too much, but never gaining much either. What is amazing is that the most successful people – and the least successful people (at least according to studies) – are givers.  The difference is how you give.

The Five Love Languages by Gary Chapman

5 Love Languages

I am only a few chapters in to The Five Love Languages – and after hearing such high praise for this book for the past few years, I had very high expectations. Two words. Love. It. The lessons taught in this book can positively change even the best relationships.  It’s a great reminder to listen to others – and appreciate that every person has his or her own way of communicating, appreciating, and showing/receiving love.
