3 More Books To Go…

I keep asking myself where the year is running to as I can’t believe that we only have 4 months to go till 2018 is over. At the start of the year, I decided to rekindle my passion for reading. I started by reading books mainly on my Kindle app as it eliminated any excuses I had for not reading. I have the Kindle app on my phone and my iPad and this was very useful as it meant I always had something to read on my commute home from work. 

I’m currently reading my 8th book for the year (Emma by Jane Austen) and I hope to finish reading it by the end of the month. With that in mind, I’ve shortlisted 3 more books that I would like to read by the end of the year. I have also started curating my 2019 reading list so if you have any books that you think I should read, do let me know.

First on my list is The President Is Missing by James Patterson and Bill Clinton. It is a thriller set over the course of 3 days and is a departure from the sort of books I tend to read. I was initially tempted to get the audiobook as Dennis Quaid is the narrator but decided to get a hard copy instead as I’m keen to take a break from digital reading.

40 books I want to read in 2020

  • Next up is Thinking Fast and Slow by Daniel Kahneman. This book was on my 2017 reading list but somehow I never got round to reading it. I was drawn to this book as Kahneman focuses on behavioural science and breaks down how the mind works into 2 clear systems – the fast system and the slow system. I’m all for learning all about myself and small behavioural changes I can make to be a better person. Somehow in my mind, when there’s a scientific reasoning behind things I want to do more of (or stop doing), the journey to change is much easier for me. This leads me to the 3rd book I have on my list…
  • The Motivation Hacker by Nick Winter. If you’ve figured out your secret recipe to getting motivated and staying motivated, that’s fantastic. I, on the other hand, am still working on mine and will gladly take all the tips I get. I have started working on my list of goals for 2019 and I figured that this would be the perfect book to end the year with as Nick’s book promises to show us the different ways to get motivated to do anything you hope to achieve.

What are some of your favourite books you’ve read this year? I’m keen to get some recommendations and add them to my 2019 reading list.
