One thing I want to accomplish over the Summer is reading some books I have been eyeing. Reading is such a calm, quiet activity. I used to love reading but then got so caught up in life that I haven’t read much lately, and I would really like to get back into it more. It would be awesome if one day I could do a monthly or seasonal book club, maybe via Facebook or even Twitter. Definitely an awesome possibility if you guys would be interested in that!
The book I am currently reading is Light is the New Black by Rebecca Campbell. I actually started reading this book a few months ago and then stopped during the busy-ness of the holidays and now I am starting to go back to it and read it. This is a book of not necessarily self-help but more like self-realization and being true to yourself. Light is the New Black helps you awaken your soul and really dig deep into your life and what makes you happy. Also, another thing I really love about reading this book is that she includes a Spotify playlist to listen to while you read and it is perfect. I always listen to music while I read and this playlist isn’t as distracting. I plan on reading her other book Rise Sister Rise after I finish this one.
Another inspirational self-help book I would be interested in reading is I Am That Girl by Alexis Jones. This book is supposed to be all about girls staying true to themselves and living a life that makes them truly happy. I would love to be that girl, and really just be the best version of me.
A book that I would like to read in 2017 to help my income and the business side of my life is Networking Like A Pro: Turning Contacts into Connections by Ivan Misner. One thing I am learning through blogging and trying to brand myself is how essential and necessary networking is. I also am getting into Real Estate and that is another field that in order to be successful I must have awesome networking skills. I firmly believe that networking is one of the most crucial skills when it comes to success in business, so I am excited to read this book and learn more.
One novel that I am excited to read is actually about to be released. It is Marlena by Julie Buntin. It is about 2 teen girls and tells the story of loss, love, addiction and life in general. It talks about how there are certain people in life who we meet and they end up being someone who helps shape us and shape the person we become. I want to read this book for fun, it simply just sounds like it is going to be a good book to me.
