My husband and I both love to read, but typically go for totally different genres! I love a good rom-com book, while he enjoys getting lost in a fantasy world.
However, we’ve recently been picking self-help books on subjects that apply to both of us such as parenting advice, health and wellness tips, or marriage and relationship topics.
Usually we’ll listen to a chapter individually (we love audiobooks since it’s something we can do while we’re driving or taking our son for a walk), and then discuss what we read during our weekly date night.
Want to try it out? Here’s a recent book we loved:
Chaos to Calm: 5 Ways Busy Parents Can Break Free from Overwhelm by Jenna Hermans
