Hello my loves and welcome back to another new reading list, this time for the month of March! I’ve got two topics on my mind this month: being my best self (I’m sure you’ve all seen my recent youtube video on the topic) and finally making a full attempt at eating vegan (yay!)
Half of this month’s reading list I picked up in the Perth airport terminal while waiting 9 hours between flights, so suffice it to say that I’ve done my research and picked the best books for the month… here we go!
1. Truly, Madly, Guilty by Liane Moriarty
I shouldn’t publicly admit to this, but I will: there’s a strong chance I stole this book from a hotel library collection… it was as if they were just begging for it by having all of these wonderful books there, with no signs to indicate otherwise. Consider it now mine. This book grabbed me in the title and I was absolutely convinced when I read the recommendation by Jojo Moyes.
Truly Madly Guilty follows a narrative of lies and family drama and sounds like just the kind of escape from reality I need on a long-haul flight journey.
2. You Do You by Sarah Knight
One of the biggest things I’ve been struggling with lately is to just keep feeling myself amidst all the changes that tend to happen in your 20’s! There are people coming in and out of your life – both friends and professionals – that it can sometimes be difficult to stick it out and be yourself, warts and all. This book is all about being you: the good, the bad, and the plain ugly. Thus it seems like a great time in my life to be reading something so liberating and in celebration of “doing you”.
3. Get your Shit Together by Sarah Knight
Once I had picked up “You do You” by Sarah Knight, I shortly thereafter came across another one of her titles on the bestseller’s list. The final line “start doing what you want to do” really resonated with me, so I’m eager to give both of her books a trial run and focus on this kind of attitude this month and this year!
4. L’art de la Simplicite: How to Live More With Less by Dominique Loreau
More of this life-changing magic I’m loving lately: its time for me to declutter my life, sell up, and get back to the simple things in life. I once told myself (approximately four years ago) that if it didn’t fit in my suitcase, it wasn’t something I needed in my life. This month (and this year) I really want to get back to that notion of minimalism and work on myself from the inside out!
5. Vegan Goodness by Jessica Prescott
I recently sent out a tweet sharing my interest in Veganism, though I’ll be the first to admit that it isn’t the first time I’ve made an attempt! After 11 years of being a vegetarian, I want to make March the month I really commit to a vegan lifestyle. What do you guys think – have you thought about going vegan or done so recently? I’d love to hear your thoughts on how to go about it!
6. Decadent Gluten-Free Vegan Baking by Cara Reed
And of course, what’s a new vegan diet without all the treats to go along with it! I’ll be trying a few of these recipes in the bakery this month (I’ll be back for a few weeks before more adventures) and I’m sure having more “treat” meals on offer, I’ll be able to commit to the vegan lifestyle without it being too much of a shock to my system.
Over to you! What are you guys reading this month, or would you recommend for me for next month!?
