So you ask, what does reading have to do with finding your voice!
With this exercise I want you to pick your favorite books. Do you have a favorite author? Let’s take five books or bloggers that you follow and evaluate them. Let’s look at similarities and differences, and what makes you want to come back.
Can you hear their voice coming through?
Come and pass the test.
If you are having a difficult time with this, or you are just starting to gather books that you like check out what I have found to help you.

Let’s face it: Finding your next book to read is a lot like dating. There’s an app for it, options can be overwhelming, and for real sparks to fly you have to be on the same page. Well, consider us your book matchmakers. We’ve found nine books you’ll want to read this summer based on your personality.
I found mine: where do you fit in?
THE “PERSON NEXT DOOR”
You: You’re the average Joe or Jill. A good citizen, hard-working and you tend to live life between the lines. Your friends turn to you for advice on everything from BBQ to stock tips.
Your book match is: Go Set A Watchman by Harper Lee
The sequel to the Pulitzer Prize winning “To Kill a Mockingbird” Harper Lee’s Go Set A Watchman has seen some controversial press since its publication this month. Make up your own mind by returning to Maycomb, Alabama and re-meeting “Scout” now 26-years old as she returns home from New York to visit her ailing father Atticus.
“I need a watchman to tell me this is what a man says but this is what he means, to draw a line down the middle and say here is this justice and there is that justice and make me understand the difference.”
I found this on Tumblr and thought it was another fantastic list for authors. I love a thesaurus, but using this as a quick reference guide for my own writing has been helpful so I thought I’d share it. I’m amazed how many great writer resources I find via social media.
What is it that you like to read, or just browse through? We all are unique individuals so my suggestions might not actually fit in with what you like. Dig deep inside and see what your style is and make it shine.
Writing and having your blog grow needs to have the personality of the writer or it will not be authentic and original. Give it a whirl and see where you end up.
Are you struggling financially right now?
Are you a mother and wife like ME, and ……….. sick of trading time for money and feel like you were meant for more than you’re currently experiencing?
I’m here to tell you, there is a way out…and it all begins with the decision that enough is enough and it is time for a change. You are worth it, your children and husband are worth it. You deserve to NEVER miss a beat in their lives. Don’t let the story society is telling you steal the precious time you have with them, because you can never get it back…
As you now realize that you were meant for more, and that your family deserves to have you and your time with them, I invite you to discover the door I went through to escape the nightmare I found myself in…
…if you know that you’re not currently fulfilling your purpose in the job you’re in and you truly desire FREEDOM…physically, mentally, and financially…then I invite you to click this link or click the photo below and step into the doorway of your freedom now… I challenge you!!
…discover how I’ve been able to pull myself from the depths of time and debt, to step into a life of financial freedom…and how YOU can do it too. You might just make today be the pivotal point in your life where you might say: “Enough is enough, I’m making this happen this year, that’s period!”
“Only YOU have the power to make a change in your life. The next five years of your life will look exactly like the last five unless you make the decision to CHANGE right now…I’m here to guide you into your own personal freedom…”
