Books read 2019.

I’m not really into setting new years ‘resolutions’ or the whole ‘new year new me’. As a life coach, yogini and spiritual devotee self development is an important part of my daily life and therefor i constantly revisit / reevaluate & make changes to my current habits and goals throughout the year wherever i see fit and would encourage others to do the same.

I do however love to set ‘things i would like to do’ for the coming year, set intentions or set myself some goals.

For 2019 i decided that i would like to read more books. When i was younger i would read constantly, my parents would often come up to my bedroom to check on me and i would just be lying there reading for 12 hours straight enchanted by the stories and depth of my favourite books. The past few years i have found myself reading less and less with the excuse of being too busy or having more important priorities. So I decided in 2019 to read at least 2 books per month.

I ended up reading 32 books in total so managed to read more than my target. The books i chose were a real mixture of novels, science, spiritual, knowledge & learning and i feel like I gained so much from reading again. I really fell back in love with reading and i know that i don’t even have to set that as a goal again for 2020 as it has now become such an important part of my routine taking the time to read that i will continue to read just as much in 2020 and after.

I thought it would be nice to share the books i read as they all were so important to me in one way or another i want to spread the word !

I have scored the books with a rating out of 10, of course this is just my personal opinion and is based on my own preferences, how much i enjoyed the book & how much i gained from it.
