I have a few books that I love. So again I'm gonna cheat on this one again because I like them for different reasons.
My favourite genre of books has to be crime and thriller. Hate watching thrillers... Love reading them!
Favourite author has to be John Grisham. Generally, when asked the question of my favourite book, I'd say hands down John Grisham. But to be fair I haven't read one of his books for a while so I thought I'd try and broaden my horizon to all the books I can remember ever reading that really stand out in my mind.
It has been a while from I've been consumed by a book. Life has just gotten in the way and I haven't made reading a priority for me.
It is something I really want to get back into soon.
I personally find fictional books super easy to read. I also love to read some self help books and I love back in the day nursing books. I absolutely detest without a shadow of doubt reading romance novels. So I'm afraid I won't be talking about any romance novels any time soon on here.
So here's my favourites thus far:
I love Sarah Knight "The Life Changing Magic of Not Giving a F*ck" I found it a great stepping stone in learning to say no, how to prioritise and think about what I actually
want in life. It also made me aware of the amount of times I agree to stuff I don't want to do.
I highly recommend this book to anyone out there that is highly agreeable like myself. Really easy to read, full of swear words so if you aren't this way inclined, either cover your eyes or grin and bare it... Or just don't read it at all lol! But you'd be missing out.
It has definitely created a turning point in my life to allow me to see that there is more to life than pleasing others and sacrificing my own time in order to feel a sense of satisfaction through obligation etc.
She categorises things so beautifully and it is very much an interactive book where you make notes of what you do give a f*ck about and things that you don't and work your way through them to re-prioritise your life.
This book was written in 1951 by John Wyndham. But don't let that put you off reading it. It's so well written and to read you wouldn't think that it was at all written in the 1950's.
My father in law actually recommended this to my husband who recommended it to me.
Super class thriller, you could actually see some of these events actually happening in an apocalyptic scenario in the sense of how people behave etc. John apparently did a lot of background research on this so I've heard in order to make the book feel real.
Really easy to read and enjoyable, kept me on the edge of my seat for sure. Not a heavy book at all and honestly just such a good read. I'd love to read it again in all honesty.
I am pretty confident in myself I have to say, so I suppose that the one positive thing I can say about my personal experience with this book is that I realised I am pretty confident when I read it.
I couldn't really relate to some of the exercises that Sarah asks the reader to do as to me they just felt like second nature for me personally.
That's not to say that it isn't a good book entirely. I just don't think now upon hind sight that this was the book for me. Definitely give it a read if you are interested in learning how to accept yourself and are quite doubtful of yourself as a person. want in life. It also made me aware of the amount of times I agree to stuff I don't want to do.
So there you have it, 2 of my favourite books that I loved so much and one that isn't my first pick.
I am a 25 year old nurse, who is trying to find herself. This blog will contain epiphanies I have, my yoga progress and other such things. Enjoy. :)
