Since last week I shared with you the latest books on my TBR list, I thought this week I would share my all time favourite reads. These are the books that I have read multiple times and would read again.
Heidi by Johanna Spyri. This is the book that started it all. Did you know that I once had reading difficulties? And that once upon a time I hated reading? Good thing I out grew that.
This is the book that my parents chose to teach me to read. It's a book about children learning to read (among other things, but I don't want to spoil it for you).
The first time I read this book I hated it. It was old, there were too many words and I felt like I was being punished for not being able to read.
It wasn't until I moved out of home that I read this book again. Needless to say, reading it the second time was much more enjoyable.
The Harry Potter Series. I first read Harry Potter and the Philosophers Stone when I was 10 years and 9 months old. I had (and still do) a vivid imagination and I was sure I would be getting my owl to Hogwarts.
Let's just say when my letter didn't arrive on my eleventh birthday I was a little disappointed.
When I was older I realised that I did go to Hogwarts every year with each new book. I am so thankful of J.K. Rowling for a magical childhood and adolescence.
I was 19 when the last book was published, I grew up with Harry, Ron and Hermione. I Am Generation "Harry Potter".
The Name of the Wind and The Wise Man's Fear are two thirds of a Trilogy I cannot wait to finish. Patrick Rothfuss tells a damn good story. I feel confident that once the third book is published it will make it's way into my all time favourites.
Fair Warning : Don't start this series unless you are willing to wait a very long time for the final book.
Real Magic by Wayne W. Dyer is my go to personal growth book. When I am suffering from anxiety about some problem in my life I turn to this book. Something about it calms me, reminds me to look at the "problem" from another perspective.
Fluent Forever by Gabriel Wyner. I would recommend to anyone trying to learn a second language. When I reach F.I.R.E, I think I will spend it traveling and learning new languages.
The Richest Man in Babylon by George S. Clason. I love that it combines storytelling and financial wisdom in one. I love reading about financial stories, both the successes and the failures. The lessons in this book are simple but therein lies it's power. Why do we always want to over complicate everything?
Rich Dad Poor Dad by Robert Kiyosaki. Read this book when I left high school. I've been on my journey to build a creative and abundant lifestyle ever since. I highly recommend Rich Dad Poor Dad to anyone wanting better their personal finances.
#Girlboss by Sophia Amoruso. I could not have started my online business and blogging journey without this book. After reading this book I realised that I and no one else had to make the time to start creating the life I wanted.
The Artists Way by Julia Cameron. Since my blog and my life goal is about building a life of creativity and abundance it only makes sense to include this book. It's been a while since I have done the famous morning pages, but I think I will get back to them this year.
