Although January has come to an end, I believe we shouldn’t let it go without making a list of the best books to read this month. I will choose only 3 books, as we have just a few days left of this month.
I always associate January with a transition phase – we start the new year determined to change our lives, to try something new, to go out more and eat healthier. And therefore, I always read books that inspired me into changing my habits and my thoughts, to start the new year properly.
The top picks of this month are:
1. 1. The Subtle Art of Not Giving a F*ck by Mark Manson
If you know me, you know that this book is at the core of my heart. This is the perfect therapy book if you want your 2020 to start off great. Letting go of things that annoy you, stress you and understand that you really shouldn’t care about small things. Stop letting insignificant actions have a say in your daily life. Instead, concentrate on the things that matter the most. Manson’s book is full of advice everyday topics like career, relationships, and how we can shift our perspective to what is really important.
I totally recommend this book if you want to change your life!
2. You are a badass by Jen Sincero
This is a book that I’ve discovered recently. And I fell in love with it. It is a self-development book as well, but this time, it concentrates on your mental health and how it impacts your everyday decisions. Sincero is using her story-telling technique to tell us how important it is to think positively and attract what we want in our lives. She is describing how her life changed and how we can change our lives by doing meditating, the law of attraction, positively thinking about where we want to be and believing we will get there.
It’s all in the power of the thought. Go and try it, and you will not regret it!
3. Normal People by Sally Rooney
This is the first non-fiction book on our list. It is definitely one of the best books I have read recently. It is easy to read, funny and full of life. It depicts the story of Connell and Marianne, one popular guy and one very guarded, private girl. They fell in love, and their love story is none like one of those fairytales – it is real. I related so much with the characters and the events for the simple thing that it all seemed so real. A story told throughout several years; the ending is so magnificently told that you, as a reader, can imagine whatever you want.
A superb book that is worth reading!
