Best of the Bunch (September 2022)

Best of the Bunch header

Today I'm sharing the best book I read in September.

I had a pretty slow reading month! Of the 7 books I read this month, I had no 5-star reads, and only one 4.5-star read, so that's my Best of the Bunch.
Platonic: How the Science of Attachment Can Help You Make—and Keep—Friends is a great summary of the research on friendship, interspersed with memorable stories from Franco's own life and other people she knows or interviewed for the book. Through chapter topics like generosity, anger, and affection, Franco goes through the actual day-to-day experiences that build and sustain friendship, grounded in true stories. As someone who's been focused recently on maintaining the friends I have and finding new ones, I felt like this book really forced me to take a hard look at my own behavior, feelings, and motivations in my relationships. I think this is a well-researched and well-written dive into the real-life experiences of friendship and would be valuable for almost anyone to read!

What is the best book you read this month? Let me know in comments, or write your own post and link up below!

Looking back:
One year ago I was reading: The Unbecoming of Mara Dyer and Know My Name
Five years ago I was reading: All Things Bright and Beautiful and After the Funeral
Ten years ago I was reading: God Believes in Love
