A Bad Case of Stripes by David Shannon
A Bad Case of Stripes - David Shannon

This book is about a girl who does everything her friends tell her to do. She does the things that the other children do, even if she does not like it. Well one day she wakes up to find that she is covered in stripes. The book goes on to tell the reader about the different physical abnormalities that occur. The main idea behind the story is that it is great for a person to just be themselves and not what peers think they should be. This is a great book to teach the children on individuality and self-esteem. The lexile level is AD540L so students should be around the 1st or 2nd grade for independent reading.

Chrysanthemum by Kevin Henkes
Chrysanthemum - Kevin Henkes

This book is about a little girl who gets made fun of at school because she was named after a flower. The little girl does everything she can think of to prevent the bullying but it does not work. Change only happens when a loved adult tells the students about her own name being from a flower. So the girl learns that it was alright to be different. That differences are what make a person unique and great. It teaches a great lesson to students. It is great to use in the classroom if students are not getting along or possibly to help prevent bullying over similar reasons. The lexile level is 410L so students would need to be around the 1st or 2nd grade for independent reading.

Self-love is far less a sin than self-neglect (paraphrasing Shakespeare)
Radical Self Love: A Guide to Loving Yourself and Living Your Dream - Gala Darling

There are some books out there that I genuinely believe should be read by everyone.

This book is one of them.

Gala Darling doesn't just talk about self-esteem ... she talks about the importance of self-love. This is the ultimate in self-care, and she just just talk platitudes. Darling provides practical "homework assignments" to get readers thinking about how they talk to themselves, treat themselves, etc. Short version: most of us aren't very good at it. Darling starts with her own experiences and how she went from living with an eating disorder to becoming a guru of radical self-love, and brings us along on the journey.

The primary message is one that should be self-evident, but really isn't: we must love ourselves first, in the same way (if not better) than we love our friends, in order to truly love anyone else. The message is brought through clearly in an entertaining, charming, and yes ... loving fashion. Delightful.

Learning to Love Yourself: Finding Your Self-Worth
Learning to Love Yourself: Finding Your Self-Worth - Sharon Wegscheider-Cruse The book was very helpful and comforting at times. It written with loving care and easy to follow. It is not one of those self help books where you read a chapter and then have to perform what is said, you are instead able to continue and absorb what was read and continue to the next chapter. I felt like this is a book where you can read over and over again gaining the loving feeling every time it is read because you are bound to take much time to learn to love oneself. Rereading will help gain that love.

Top 6 Books Read in 2013
Thank You, Jeeves - P.G. Wodehouse
The Wicked - Thea Harrison
Wild Invitation - Nalini Singh
Prowl the Night - Crystal Jordan
The Girls' Guide to Hunting and Fishing - Melissa Bank
Spirit Junkie: A Radical Road to Self-Love and Miracles - Gabrielle Bernstein

I had a major book slump going on this year which is pretty apparent in that I barely read 100 books in 2013 when i usually top out closer to 200. Also, most of the stories I did read this year were novellas or anthologies because I just couldn't muster the energy to start a full length novel. With that in mind, here is the list of the best books/novellas/short stories I read in 2013. Here's hoping 2014 is better!
