Warning Book recommendations ahead. Don’t scroll if your shelves are already dangerously full of books to-read.
But, even if they are and you’re still curious…take a peep at the books that our Rebels have been reading and loving recently
Rebel’s don’t stick to one genre or topic. They’re a well-read bunch! The following recommendations range from diet and homesteading to biographies and sasquatch fiction novels. Check them out below:
Eat It!: The Most Sustainable Diet and Workout Ever Made: Burn Fat, Get Strong, and Enjoy Your Favorite Foods Guilt Free
“I thought this was a great all around book on diet and weight loss. I don’t agree with everything but that’s OK because much of it is really good. If you struggle with your mindset around diet and you find yourself constantly on or off the train the topics on mindset are gold IMO.” – Rebel Ryan B.
Acid for the Children: A Memoir
Glucose Revolution: The Life-Changing Power of Balancing Your Blood Sugar
“Another terrific read! Offers practical tips and hacks that anyone can implement to smooth out their glucose curves to up level their health. Very easy and quick to read as well.” – Hyla U.
Bittersweet: How Sorrow and Longing Make Us Whole
“Wow – Really enjoyed Susan Cain’s new book “Bittersweet” (author of “Quiet”). She got me at: Do you enjoy sad music? Do you take comfort in a rainy day? Do you react strongly to art, nature, music? Loved it!” – Hyla U.
Don’t Tell Me I Can’t: An Ambitious Homeschooler’s Journey
“This book. Empowering and heartbreaking all in one go. Read it yourself then give it to your kids to read. Kids (& adults) can do way more than we tend to think. His “don’t tell me I can’t” is like my phrase “too old is a myth”. We can do more!” – Kate G.
The Coddling of the American Mind: How Good Intentions and Bad Ideas Are Setting Up a Generation for Failure
“Evening patio reads with the pup. I heard about this book a couple years ago but totally forgot about it until I recently listened to Jonathan Haidt’s interview on the Lex Friedman Podcast. Very thought provoking and interesting so far!” – Amanda C.
Radical Homemakers: Reclaiming Domesticity from a Consumer Culture
“Found this at the friends of the library by-donation book sale at the farmer’s market today on Whidbey Island with my parents. From the back cover:
“Radical Homemakers nation-wide speak about empowerment, transformation, happiness, and casting aside the pressures of a consumer culture to live in a world where money loses its power to relationships, independent thought, and creativity. If you ever considered quitting a job to plant tomatoes, read to a child, pursue creative work, can green beans and heal the planet, this is your book.”
Never heard of the author before but she is of grassfedcooking.com, The Farmer and the Grill, and The Grassfed Gourmet. Looks interesting, and yet another one to be added to my list ” – Liz D.
Unsettled: What Climate Science Tells Us, What It Doesn’t, and Why It Matters
“I decided that I’ll take a stab at this. It’ll most likely feel like pouring 10 lbs of shit into a 2 lbs bag, but we paint with the colors we’ve been given. ” – Antti L.
Devolution: A Firsthand Account of the Rainier Sasquatch Massacre
“Taking a break from a long string of nonfiction books of various topics to enjoy some fiction set in my home state. Really enjoying it so far; it’s funny how the description of this little mountainous community literally made me laugh within the first chapter bc it’s basically all this high tech stuff far away from the city, but the residents are still just high maintenance city dwellers with no actual survival skills (except the one crazy lady). I am liking this one quite a bit so far.
An interesting quote:
“Those poor bastards didn’t want a rural life. They expected an urban life in a rural setting. They tried to adapt their environment instead of adapting TO it…
“As far as emergency supplies, or lack thereof…that’s just how the tech industry thinks. They don’t plan for what can go wrong. They move fast and break things.”” – Liz D.
Helping People Change: Coaching with Compassion for Lifelong Learning and Growth
“I dare people to hire me as a coach and not reach a goal after spending some time with Boyatzis.” – Whitney R.
