If your New Year’s Resolution was to read more books then you’ve come to the right place. As someone who learns most of their skills and life mantras from books (cold hard copies, I can’t do the digital type!) I love to share what I’m reading each month that inspires me and this month I’m focusing on direction/purpose with what I’m reading (it is January after all!) There’s nothing I love more than a recommendation or book review chat so please, jump in the comments with your own book recommendations and/or reviews of the below books – can’t wait to see what you guys think of these January reads!
Poetry and prose about love and being loved? Sign me up. I’ve been single for the better part of a year now so escaping in to a little romance novel or poetry book can work wonders when you’re a romantic at heart but putting that side of life to the side for the time being. Her is one of the top selling poetry books of the moment but one of the least publicised, so I’m looking forward to diving in to something new.
Lang Leav has quickly become a household name in poetry and her January 2019 release is high on my list of books to read pronto, so now that it is out I’m making it a priority! I love how she uses words to convey very real and raw human emotions and I’m excited to see where this book takes me.
Astrology and the moving of the planets to understand phases of life, times of success and times of trouble is something that really started to fascinate me last year. Studying your birth chart is a great way to understand your life and future so in 2019 I want to take the time to dive deeper into astrology (shout out to my virgos!)
Another poetry book and one that I am particularly excited about is Wild Embers, an exploration of the fire within (which we all have, its just a matter of finding it!) The works explore individuality – being comfortable in your own skin, thriving with what you’ve got in front of you right now and the long and sometimes arduous task of self love.
Therese Anne Fowler is one of my favourite authors (Z is still to this day one of my top 5 reads of all time) and although I aimed to read this book late last year, it is still sitting on my book shelf waiting for some attention. I’ll be packing it in my case for my travels in January and I can’t wait to learn more about the Vanderbilts, especially after my visit to Newport Rhode Island last year!
Over to you! What are you reading this month?
