Do you have any book recommendations for me?
This year I’ve read over 90 books. Some in paper form, some as audiobooks. I use every opportunity I have: In my car, in between meetings and in the comfort of my bed. Some books have moved me deeply, some have taken me new places and some entertained me. Surely, some are already forgotten, and then I think: why did I waste my time on that book? Now I have a week to read a lot, and I don’t want to make the mistake of reading books that doesn’t give me anything. So my question to you is: Can you recommend a book to me? If you want to see books I’ve already read, feel free to check out my Goodreads account.
Thanks in advance!

I’ve read the first and the third, but not the second. What is it about ?

It’s about a successful woman with a dysfunctional family who makes a resolution to change the way she lives her life. It’s hilarious and so is Maria Semple’s previous novel. I had the pleasure of meeting her.

They’re short stories about healing mental illness, my commentary of the mental health system, and how I learned to love myself.

Awesomeness! I’m currently working on a second book about my spiritual journey after my healing from Dissociative disorder. I’m not sure when I’ll be finished.

Be sure to let me know when you’re finished. I never get enough of reading about dissociation, even when it’s painful to take in what people have gone through. You are brave, especially for sharing your journey. Keep writing and I will follow your work. I have just started reading your book and will continue reading until I go to bed. Hugs 🙂

Now I’ve read your book and reviewed it on Goodreads and amazon. I absolutely loved it. It was packed with inspiration, and I will keep a lot of the advice in mind when I talk with people who are having a hard time! It was wonderful to read a history of healing, especially since you had so much to deal with!!

I loved the book The Story of You. Its a lighter take (fictional) on a relationship from childhood which involves the story of a woman who suffers a trauma as a teenager and then becomes a mental health worker herself. I am sorry I don’t remember the author’s name. As I said its light but I loved the story and the emotional journey she goes on to heal.

Also I think Legacy of the Heart : the Spiritual Advantages of a Painful Childhood by Wayne Muller is one of the most heartfelt books I have read on recovering from a dysfunctional childhood and all the wounds that can bring. He uses case studies and focuses each chapter on a negative experience that can be turned to the positive for healing.
