Discovering a good book is just about as gratifying as hearing your new favorite song for the first time or taking a sip of a delicious glass of wine. It’s soul quenching on another level – the gift that keeps on giving.
Finding time to carve out to sit down to read has been a priority for me over the past year, which has proved to be very rewarding. I consider my reading time to be a time of personal growth, and therefore, always has me gravitating towards reads that will teach me new philosophies, ideas and notions about oneself. For me, it’s less about escaping to another world through fictional fantasies and more about learning new tools to work on this one.
That being said, the pile of books that sits by my bedside are all works of non-fiction. From poetry, psychology, philosophy, business books, even parenting books – I love spending my time reading books that are insightful and will help me grown as an individual.
So before turning the pages of a few of my favorites below, snuggle up under a blanket, light your favorite Diptyque candle and let the inspiration begin!
