I was such a bookworm as a child. However that changed when I went to college. Between attending classes, working numerous jobs and my social life- I had very little time (and/or energy) to read for pleasure. Last year, I decided to get back into reading. Although I managed to complete just a few books, I was happy to be doing something that feeds my mind and soul. Here are some of my current favorite books. What are you must reads?
The Five Love Languages- Gary Chapman
This book was such an easy read. I learned so much about the mindful expression of love. I also learned about the importance of expressing love in my spouse’s love language. The information contained in this book is invaluable. I love how applicable it is to just about every relationship.
What I Know For Sure- Oprah Winfrey
I am such an Oprah Winfrey fan. I could go on and on about her but I will spare you. This book was another easy read which was perfect for those long, stressful days. It is filled with little gems of wisdom from the her life experiences. I think it makes a great gift or coffee table decor piece.
The Alchemist- Paulo Coelho
I heard many positive things about this book so I decided to finally give it a try. I am so happy I did. The author is such an excellent story teller. His vivid descriptions made me see myself in the protagonist. The story is a great reminder to follow our hearts, pay attention to signs given to us on life’s journey and to pursue our dreams.
I Know Why The Caged Bird Sings- Maya Angelou
I originally read this book in middle school. It is Maya Angelou’s autobiography. I was originally drawn to the book because of the author. However, the title further drew me in. It is one of my favorite books. I love it so much that I re-read it very so often.
