I like big books and…


My kids know that I take songs and adapt the lyrics all. the. time. I thought that it might be good to share my favorite books from 2017. In my last blog I shared that I believe that reflection is a superpower and I have a friend that says that literacy is a superpower. They are probably both superpowers that can change life trajectories. Anyway, here are my top five books from 2017:

1. Braving the Wilderness- Brené Brown

2. The Power of Moments- Chip Heath and Dan Heath

3. The Power of Positive Leadership- Jon Gordon

4. Option B- Sheryl Sandberg

5. The Last Black Unicorn- Tiffany Haddish

And other great books I read in 2017:
