The type of books you read says a lot about your personality. Some of us like to escape to a different world while others may enjoy sticking to reality. Since I tend to gravitate towards books that can increase skills and knowledge, these have been my current recommendations for those who share the same reading interest.
1. The Life-Changing Magic of Tidying Up: The Japanese Art of Decluttering and Organizing – The older I get the more I hate having so much stuff laying around my home. This book as inspired me to check up on my space every now and then to do a review and get rid of the unnecessary clutter just hanging around. Although a lot of the tips and advice come as common sense, it’s still an informative reminder of what we can do to minimalize our space. Even the small stuff does make a huge difference! You may want to grab this one especially if you have hoarding tenancies…
2. Thug Kitchen: Eat Like You Give a F*ck – Although my head and the way I view my diet is a bit all over the place I have made it a point to never eat meat again. Sushi is still something I struggle to eliminate, however for the most part I do follow a lot of a vegan diet. This book has taught me that I can still have delicious food and a wide variety of it without having to sacrifice anything. I also appreciate that a lot of the dishes are Mexican inspired which I absolutely love since it’s one of my other favourite cuisines. Even if you’re not going to buy the book at least read the hilarious foul mouth commentary.
3. Fluent in 3 Months: How Anyone at Any Age Can Learn to Speak Any Language from Anywhere in the World – Language learning has always been a big interest of mine, and to be able to learn as many foreign languages as I can has always brought me joy. For anyone who has tried to learn a language outside of school and on their own will know it can be quite the challenge. The author of the book, Benny Lewis is notorious for having learnt many languages in such a short amount of time. He is someone to turn to when trying to learn a few tricks and tips. This is a great read for anyone going through the minor struggles of learning a new language.
4. Steal Like an Artist: 10 Things Nobody Told You About Being Creative – For those with the gift of artistry and creativity you will appreciate this shorty but goodie. Every single page will have your mind running with inspirational quotes, encouraging advice, ecstatic mind blurps, and helpful tips on seeing even further outside of the box. This is a book I like to flip through when I’m having major writers block or just need a little bit of a creative push. This jem speaks for itself but when in doubt – turn to this book.
I’d love to know what you’re currently reading! xo.
