Is there anything better than clearing a whole afternoon and settling down to start a new book? I love reading, it’s the very best way to lose yourself for a few hours! I will often get through an entire book during this time…
I’m having a bit of a moment with feel-good reads right now; I want to be inspired – maybe it’s a mid-twenties kind of feeling, but I want to know that I’m on the right path in this crazy old world. I want to go easier on myself, to feel better in my skin… and I want to hear from ladies who have figured this shit out for themselves!
This colourful number is a ‘finding yourself’ tale with a difference; it follows author Laura as she tries her hardest to make sense of herself after a breakup. I’ve only skimmed the first few pages but I’m already hooked on her incredible way with words, they almost form a sing-song! Everything is so beautifully described, I can just tell I’ll lap this up.
The Opposite Of Loneliness
This book has been on my must-read list for so long, and I’m so glad I can finally delve in. Marina Keegan was a Yale-graduate with the world at her feet when she was suddenly killed five days after graduation. Her family and friends rallied together to publish a collection of her short stories, detailing the everyday struggles we all face as we move about our lives.
Honestly, I think this book will ruin me… but I reckon it’ll do a lot of good too. I’ll keep you posted on this one.
This was my first purchase of the lot; I really need to take some time out to indulge in a lot of self-care. After my struggles with acne and the emotional battles that come with it, I gave up on myself… and I’m still figuring out how I can fix myself after such an intense few years of loathing everything about myself.
This sounds like everything I need – it combines inspirational words from someone who’s been there, along with exercises and illustrations. I hope this gets me back to feeling like myself again!
This seems to be the read of the moment for anyone pursuing a creative career, and I instantly fell in love with the description! Author Elizabeth challenges you to let go of fear and embrace life! For too long, I’ve been that girl that says no to everything – trips away, events, opportunities. I realised this year that I didn’t want to be that person anymore, but where do I go from here? I’m expecting big things from this brilliant read!
Have you read any of these? What do you think of self-help books?
