Seeing as it’s the start of a new year, I wanted to share with you/ recommend the top 5 books that I read in 2018 that should be added to your 2019 reading list ASAPPP!!!
*These are in no particular order btw*
Creating Money: Attracting Abundance by Sanaya Roman & Duane Packer
This was the first ‘self-help’ book that I have ever read and it really helped change my perspective on a lot of things in my life. The book is a step by step guide that talks about manifesting and creating abundance. It goes into detail about how to manifest, how our thoughts and emotions play apart in the manifesting process, how to meditate, working with energy etc, however everything is explained in a straightforward way and isn’t overly complicated. There are a variety of affirmations throughout the book and it also gives you meditation exercises to do after each chapter. Despite the title of the book, the skills and techniques that you learn in this book can be applied to anything in your life that you are trying to manifest, attract or achieve and I would highly recommend to everyone.
You Are A Badass by Jen Sincero
You are a badass was a great read. I like how informal the book was, it was really easy to read and I like how the author got straight to the point, provided you with the information that you needed without waffling. And it was funny too. I would recommend this to everyone, especially those who are just starting out within the ‘self-help’ genre.
The Four Agreements by Don Miguel Ruiz
The four agreements is an amazing book that goes into detail about the four “life hacks” that you should master in order to transform your life for the better. This book was so short and so simple yet so powerful and it really helped shift my mindset; the four agreements is something I’m trying to live by. I highly, highly recommend this book to everyone.
A Psalm For Us by Reyna Biddy
This book was my favourite collection of poetry and one of my favourite books overall that I’ve read this year. It talks about self-love, self-growth and self-discovery whilst touching on religion/spirituality. I found the topics so relatable and I loved the writing style and how the book was made up of a combination of poems, prose and spoken word. I would highly recommend.
p.s. I would also recommend her first collection of poetry ‘i love my love’
The Hate U Give by Angie Thomas
This book was another one of my favourites of this year. I loved the message that this book gave, it is very relatable to situations in our current day, I loved the characters in this and I loved how even though the topic of this story was quite a heavy one, there were still moments of laughter and joy. I LOVED the references to Tupac and the explanation of T.H.U.G L.I.F.E.
You can find my full review of this book here
Sidenote: The book was way better than the movie so please read the book before watching the movie 🙂
