I’ve been on a massive reading kick this year, and I feel like I’ve read some really great books that I want to share with you (I’m pretty sure I’ve mentioned them before but they’re good enough to harp on about again!)

The power of crystal healing

If you’re into crystals like I am, you’ll love this. It’s one I’m going to have on my bookshelf and keep dipping in and out of as and when. Filled to the brim of lots of different types of crystals and what emotion they are best used for, it’s the perfect handy guide to keep out whenever you need a pick me up and wondering what crystal you might want to get in your collection next.

Your dream life starts here

Written by the founder of Kikki K- the gorgeous stationery brand- if you are feeling a bit fed up with how your life is currently and want to dream bigger, this is the ultimate book you need! It is packed with lots of different journalling tasks, and helps you set achieveable goals (that you choose) to start working towards your dream life. After every chapter reading this I felt more positive than ever, and it’s a book I still think about regularly long after I finished it.

Eve of man

My favourite fiction book of 2019 so far, probably by a mile if I’m honest. I could not put this down and I’m eagerly awaiting the next book of the bunch later this year. A story of the first girl to be born in 50 years, it feels very Hunger Games esque, and just as good in my opinion too. If you’re interested in just picking up one of these recommendations, make it this one!

Playing big

A very popular book in the blogging world I feel, but thankfully, it lived up to the hype. This book is everything a working women needs to read. In fact, I’m pretty sure they should make it mandatory reading for girls in school, that’s how revolutionary it is. I can only imagine the amount of positive change that could happen for women. It’s a book I’d encourage every female to read, and then pass it on to your friends!

Hashtag authentic

If you’re a fellow Instagram friend, this is the book for you. Packed full of beautiful photography, thought based tasks and super helpful tips, Sara’s book is everything you need for that little app on our phones that can sometimes drive us crazy. Reading this made me remember just how simple Instagram can and should be, and how we can make it work for us, not against us. Whether you want to completely change up your grid, or just need a little bit of inspiration as to what photo to take next, this has it all covered.

The cows

I picked this one up after a recommendation online, and I’m really glad I did. It’s such an interesting read about three different women and how complex yet paralell their lives are. I totally didn’t guess the twist either which is just how I like my books to be. A great fiction read that you’ll probably not be able to put down- I certainly couldn’t!


What’s been your number one favourite read of this year so far? I would love to know!
