Best of the Bunch (October 2022)

Best of the Bunch header

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

It was a decent reading month. Of the 10 books I read this month, I had two 5-star reads.

Nick and Charlie by Alice Oseman

Burnout: The Secret to Unlocking the Stress Cycle by Emily Nagoski and Amelia Nagoski

The novella was lovely but probably only recommended for those already immersed in the Heartstopper universe, so the other will be my Best of the Bunch!

Burnout had everything a good nonfiction book should have: solid research explained in layman's terms, practical suggestions for applying said research to your own life, and example stories to show how the lessons from the book might look in real life. The Nagoski sisters balance individual, communal, and societal factors in exploring how stress affects us (particularly women) and what we can do about it. This is the kind of book whose lessons you can put into practice right away and also come back to in the future. I definitely recommend this if you haven't yet read it.

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: Set Boundaries, Find Peace, Monsters and Mold, Solutions and Other Problems, and Muse of Nightmares
Five years ago I was reading: Birdsong and The Secret History
Ten years ago I was reading: A Year of Biblical Womanhood
