Happy last day of August! I have no idea how the months have flown by so quickly! I still remember 1st January like it was yesterday. One of the things I said to myself at the beginning of the year was that I was going to try to read more… It’s been easier in the colder months than summer that’s for sure, but I’m back to it.
I just wanted to share my reading list with you all as I know some of you follow me on social media and have been keeping up to date but also wondering what to read next… some of my favourite books have come from others recommendations!
Top reads of August:
- First we make the beast beautiful by Sarah Wilson. A great book for anyone suffering from anxiety or even just want to know a bit more… actually it’s a great book for everyone to read.
- Daring Greatly by Brene Brown. Ah this book had all the feels! She talks about the strengths in being vulnerable but also why it’s so hard for all of us. The book leaves you with daring greatly and wholesome techniques you can use everyday.
- The life changing magic of not giving a f* by Sarah Knight. So this book had me laughing out loud but also nodding in agreement at every page. Despite the huge swear jar amount on each page it’s a great book to read if you’re like me and constantly spend your life trying to please others and then feeling guilty.
- Eleanor Oliphant is completely fine by Gail Honeyman. Ok so I’m only half way through this book and I picked it up because everyone’s been raving about it! It took me a while to get into as it’s my first fiction book in so long! But now I just can’t put it down! I need to know what’s going to happen.
- Jurassic Park. This isn’t a recommendation from me but my husband can NOT stop raving about it! He finished it a few days! Apparently it’s better than the movies (I am yet to read it but I trust his recommendation!)
So what has September got in store for me…
- Finish off Eleanor Oliphant (If I don’t finish it today!)
- A Plea for the Animals by Matthieu Ricard. I think this is going to be a hard hitting book so I’ll keep you posted on that one.
- A Tribe of Mentors by Timothy Ferris. A book that has come highly recommended and is about the size of my old chemistry text books so may end up being my October and November book too!
I usually find myself reading two books at once (one in my work bag and one by my bed side table… anyone else do that?
So there it is… A quick round up of books! Let me know if you have been loving any other books and what I can add to my list for the coming months.
