Summary – When Finch and Violet meet on the ledge of the bell tower at school, it’s unclear who saves whom… Soon it’s only with Violet that Finch can be himself. And it’s only with Finch that Violet forgets to count away the days and start living them. But as Violet’s world grows, Finch’s begins to shrink.
Summary – Anna is happy in Atlanta. She has a loyal best friend and a crush on her coworker at the movie theater, who is just starting to return her affection. So she’s not too pleased when her father decides to send her to a boarding school in Paris for her senior year. But despite not speaking a word of French, Anna meets some cool new friends, including the handsome Etienne St. Clair, who quickly becomes her best friend. Unfortunately, he’s taken – and Anna might be, too. Will a year of romantic near misses end with a French kiss she’s been waiting for?
Summary – Arianna Dubray is nothing like the girl she left in Baltimore. Once a Prada shoe wearing, Michael Kors bag carrying, on top of the world seventeen-year-old girl, Arianna knew that her life would never be the same when she got out of the car in middle-of-nowhere Montana.
Canyon Michaels is the keeper of his own dark secrets. Plagued by his family name, he’s forced to prove the town wrong and make it on his own.
The last thing Arianna needs is a reason to stay, but with every passing day the decision to leave becomes harder. Once their paths cross nothing can tear them apart, other than the secrets that start to surface and the nightmares that soon become their reality.
The goal everyday is to learn something new. Personal mentors, daily reading, and podcasts on my specific industry are all things that influence me daily.
In this post I wanted to share the other personal growth podcast and recordings I listened to today.
I think it is important to pick up books, listen to podcasts, and read blogs that are outside of my specific industry. I may just be a nerd when it comes to learning and growing but I am fired up after I listen to something that teaches me something new, expands my mind to new ways of thinking, or takes a different approach to a well-known subject.
As Entrepneur.com puts it “the people we choose to surround ourselves with impacts the way we think, act and feel on a day-to-day basis.” What is great about the internet is that I can be “surrounded” by all sorts of people on my time.Rich people and poor people have the same brain, just given different nourishment.

Isn’t it crazy how once you focus on a specific topic it pops up everywhere!?
Adventures In YA
Once at my desktop, I listed to Adventures In YA‘s podcast. They always share their latest reads and I like to find out which books they recommend. I am finding that every time I listen to them I am adding a few books onto my TBR pile.
My Taught You
Lastly, I stumbled upon a blog post by Kisha “Coach K” Proctor listing a few good podcasts that “every #BossBabe should listen to.” The first one, Myliek Teele of My Taught You, sounded good so I gave it a try – and I am hooked! In fact I listened to two of her Q&A podcasts. Digging around her site I also see she has quite a few podcasts about various books. In fact I found book recommendations left and right! (See, leaders are readers!)
