Happy August and Happy National Book Lovers Day! Today is a day to unplug from technology and celebrate reading and literature. To mark the occasion, we asked members of our team to share some of their favorite titles, and they didn’t disappoint! Our realtors and marketing team provided us with a great range of books perfect for any occasion!
“My favorite books are my son’s children’s books. It’s really fun to transport my mind back to childhood with the stories and also connect with him while doing so. As he continues to learn, he points out more and more pictures on the pages with words and it’s so fun to see his mind expand. Of his books, my favorites are Little Blue Truck, What A Wonderful World and Chicka Chicka Boom Boom.”

Never Split the Difference by Chris Voss

A great read to challenge your emotional intelligence and intuition skills!
The Tattooist of Auschwitz by Heather Morris
“This story is truly one of the most heart wrenching and raw love stories I have ever read. The devotion and relationship survival of a couple enduring life in a concentration camp; one challenged with the job of adding a numerical tattoo to all incoming prisoners, and one trying her very best to survive one of the most horrific events in history – is nothing short of a miracle. This novel is remarkable considering that it is based on true recollections and stories from the actual couple themselves. Not the first holocaust sotry to be so touching, but this one does have a happy ending, and details some lesser known events during this time in history. A beautiful story of selflessness and human compassion will cause most folks to admire this young couple’s strength.”
Rogue Warrior by Richard Marcinko
Richard Marcinko rose through the ranks of the Navy to create and command the legendary SEAL TEAM SIX, and this is his story. Rogue Warrior is the gripping and heroic memoir of a thirty-year veteran, including secret missions, special warfare and riveting details about the top-secret Navy SEALs.
You are a Badass by Jen Sincero
This book is a self-help guide, how-to manual and uplifting read all-in-one! It’s packed full of “hilariously inspiring stories, sage advice, easy exercises and the occasional swear word” to inspire you to create a life you love.
Harry Potter and the Goblet of Fire by J.K. Rowling
“If I had to choose, I’d pick Harry Potter and the Goblet of Fire, but I really love any and all of the Harry Potter books! The series is a classic and a must-read if you haven’t done so already!”
When Life Gives You Lululemons by Lauren Weisberger
“This was such a hard choice, because there are so many great books that I love! This title is one of my recent favorites though! When Life Gives You Lululemons is a spin-off from The Devil Wears Prada and makes a great summer read. So fun and a great distraction!”
Still Standing by Teresa Robinson et al.
Any book list would be incomplete without mentioning the latest title from the mom of our very own Hannah Lane! Still Standing features the personal testimonies of six strong and courageous women and is an uplifting read about life, and triumph, after divorce. A powerful and inspiring book to say the least!
