the road back to you (ian cron & suzanne stabile)
this book is a great introduction to the enneagram, a thing i've mentioned once before. the enneagram, in short, is an ancient personality typing system that focuses mainly on the drive behind your behaviors, instead of just the behaviors themselves, to help give you a better understanding of who you are, why you do what you do, and how you can be a better, healthier version of yourself. it has been such a game changer for me.
please figure out which number you are and then let's talk about it. it's my new favorite topic of conversation.
to kill a mockingbird (harper lee)
i "read" this in high school. in quotes because what i actually read was chapter summaries so i'd pass pop quizzes and exams. if i could give any piece of advice to my high school self, it would be to read the books.
and also maybe find out your enneagram number.
i didn't speed-read through this one. it wasn't a page turner. but i felt sad when i finished and thought about it for days afterword. i got it from the library, otherwise i would've read it again.
