Who Loves Books?

I have always been a reader since I was knee high and the love for books have stem throughout my teenage and adult life. I am a sucker for a thriller/murder mystery books but I also enjoy a good light- hearted romantic book. But, this is not what I’m here to talk about ( although I would love to start a book club). I have discovered another great genre that I’m totally in awe of and that is dun…dun..dunnn Self help books. Now I know what your gonna say but it really does transform lives and makes you more open to situations and experiences around you.

All these books I have read and I will give you my opinion about them. If you have read any books that are not on the list, feel free to comment below with your suggestions.

 

Big Magic by Elizabeth Gilbert

Big Magic

I’ve heard a lot of good reviews about this book and thought I would give it a read and I’m glad that I did. Not only did it open my eyes to new knowledge I discovered but it also taught me how messages can be pass through person to person ( when you read the book you’ll understand). Gilbert talks about her experiences and its nice to see the authors journey. I recommend this to anyone who wants to be creative but does not know where to start.

The Alchemist By Paul Coelho

This was the first book I read and was recommended to me by a friend, I am so happy that she told me about this book. I read this book in 3 days because it was so engaging and great. I don’t want to spoil it for but its a must read.

The Power of Now By Eckhart Tolle

the power of now

The power of now is all about being in the present and living in the now. At first I found the book very heavy with the amount of information crammed in but once I pushed through it I started to open my mind to living in the present and now use the tools in this book in my everyday life.

 

Practical Mindfulness By Consultant Ken A. Verni, Psy.D.

I received this from my lovely mother and in this book it gives you tips and tricks to practice mindfulness in everyday life. It taught me how to discover who I am and questions  what I want from life. It even gives you task to do and how to keep it up and advise you what to do when you finish reading the book. I really enjoyed this book and still to this day I refer back to it. It’s a big heavy book so I recommend you buy the hardback so you can highlight and write on it.

 

Thank you for reading and remember
