All about the books

When you can't afford to travel as often a good ol' book does the trick. This year I've been having my eyes on some books thats been popping up so frequently on Instagram and also, on my search for finding a bunch of used ones on Amazon to cut the cost. My dad always told me arm yourself with knowledge for that is the only thing you will carry with you. My love for literature began when I was younger but more so, Romeo and Juliet did it for me and Maya Angelou's poetry inspired me as a kid. 

I enjoy reading things that I can apply to every day life so my go to books are usually self help or inspiration. You'll catch me here and there reading history or things that take me out of my guilty pleasure zone. Keeping an open mind to material is key, but when you love something, you tend to read it from front to back and maybe even go back and re-read it if its that good. Since I don't watch tv often I try to treat books like stations. A good friend of mine shared this idea with me years ago and I've carried that with me since, thanks girl! 

If you don't have people giving you ideas on book ideas ... what is really good? seriously, I can't say how grateful I am for the friends and family who just send me pdf's randomly. You know how exciting it is to open up a fresh poetry book? It's like chocolate on a strawberry, AMAZING! or I'm just being dramatic. On a serious note, push your friends and family to read. You never know something they can gain based on your recommendation. 

Here's some books I've been eyeing and will be reading this year! 

 

Letters, to Women Like Me

Letters, to the Men I've Loved

 The Art of Letting Go

The Subtle Art of Not Giving a F***

Big Magic: Creative Living Beyond Fear

 

The Fifth Agreement: A Practical Guide of Self-Mastery

Wild Embers

The Hollywood Commandments: A Spiritual Guide to Secular Success

The book I'm currently carrying in my bag is :  You Are a Badass: How to Stop Doubting Your Greatness and Start Living an Awesome Life

If you guys have any book suggestions feel free to share you favorites this year and maybe we can even do a challenge of how many we can take down this year. My goal is to read at least 12-15 books this year that's including poetry which is usually lighter material. Wish me luck! What's your reading goal this year? Is mine realistic? I'm going to try it out, I think I can do it just depends on the material I choose.
