These are our favorite books we read in 2022…
Anatomy of anxiety by Ellen Vora, MD
What I love about this book is how Dr. Vora was able to capture multiple truths about experiencing anxiety at once, while challenging the ways we treat mental illness in Western medicine. It reflects her unique experience and training, as a licensed psychiatrist and functional medicine specialist. As I learned to listen to my body more attentively, I found myself understanding how my lifestyle contributed to mood swings, irritability, and physical symptoms. I am grateful for her work.
School for good mothers by Jessamine Chan
Introducer: Bridgette, Brand Manager
I believe that good books not only entertain but also leave a lasting impression. This definitely did the trick! This book is an intense read, yet utterly captivating. I didn’t want to give too much away, but for days afterward, I thought about the “violations” I had committed as a mother and how (IF!) I could survive here. this educational institution.
I Think It’s Just Me (But It’s Not)) by Brené Brown
Recommended by: Greta, Content Creator
I just love Brené and the way she writes. After reading her books, I always have a lot to process in a way that doesn’t feel overwhelming. She spoke with a lot of conviction but also with grace, and I really appreciated that. I think anyone in any stage of life will find joy in this!
Midnight Library by Matt Haig
The Midnight Library is about a woman who decides to end her life but then finds herself stuck between life and death, with the chance to try other lives she might have lived if she had. He made other decisions. The main character is an example for any of us who have ever felt like there was a real disappointment in life. This book will probably make anyone reading it think a little differently about life; it will mean something unique for each reader.
In five years by Rebecca Serle
Referee: Jackie, Editorial Director
I devoured this book positively. It follows Dannie Kohan, a woman who plans her life down to the last detail. She prepares for an important job interview and accepts her boyfriend’s proposal in just one day. Everything went according to plan, until she fell asleep that night and woke up in another apartment, next to another man. She spends an hour here, five years in the future; when she wakes up again in her own house, things will never be the same again.
Attractive sound? Sure. Is this book what you think it is? Absolutely not.
This book is about love, friendship, and heartbreak—the most diverse human story ever. It tore through my heart and made me think about it for a long time afterwards.
An autumn of marigolds by Susan Meisner
Recommended by: Nancy, Executive Assistant
“A beautiful scarf connects two women touched by tragedy in this gripping and emotional novel.”
I liked the character development in this book. I feel highly connected to each one. It’s historical fiction that I love, and the plot weaves past and present events together in a very compelling way.
