My 2019 Reading List

Call it a cliche, but making a resolution to read more has nothing but benefits. Given how little time I've found for reading in 2018, (my habit tracker is shameful,) I've compiled a reading list to avoid getting overwhelmed with choice and just. start. reading.

1. The Little Book Of Hygge

Hygge is a Norwegian and Danish concept which cannot be directly translated into English but is likened to cosiness and savouring the simple pleasures. This book is a beginners guide to all things Hygge.

2. The Little Book Of Lykke

The book which followed the above, Lykke is the Danish word for happiness, and both are written by the happiness expert, CEO of the World Happiness Institute Meik Wiking.

3. The Secret

Increasingly popular in the blogging community, Rhonda Byrne teaches you how positive thinking is the key to making things happen.

4. The Five Second Rule

The concept that you can change what you're doing, where you are, how you're thinking, and all it takes is 5 seconds.

5. You Are a Badass: How to Stop Doubting Your Greatness and Start Living an Awesome Life

It's been labelled "The World's most fun Self-Help book," -for me that is a done deal.

Making my room a cosy environment for reading has been paramount to motivating me, see my previous post where I discuss Hygge. Candles, fairy lights, blankets and cushions, all play a part in the atmosphere which Hygge thrives in.

Share this with your local wannabe bookworm.
