Books to Read this Month – January Edition

Hi Loves!

Lucky for me I got to work from home today! It’s what we call a “snow day” down south (AKA there is some ice).  But hey, I’ll take it! To continue my monthly series, Books to Read this Month, I am bringing you books that can help you meet your goals in 2018!  Here are some books that will bring you inspiration and ideas on how to make 2018 your best year yet:

1.“The Life-Changing Magic of Tidying Up: The Japanese Art of Decluttering and Organizing,Marie Kondo

Okay I am not going to say this changed my life, but it really did help me when it came to organizing and decluttering my house, office, car, etc! As much as I try to simplify my material possessions, sometimes it’s HARD.  I always think… I might wear that one day… or I might need that pen I got from the dentist’s office 5 years ago… This book really helps cut ties and organize.  I am actually re-reading it now!

2.“Tribe of Mentors: Short Life Advice from the Best in the World,” Tim Ferriss

I just bought this book and am really loving it! It has short, sweet advice from some of the most successful people in their trade—anyone from Ann Miura-Ko to Steve Aoki.

3.“You Are a Badass: How to Stop Doubting Your Greatness and Start Living an Awesome Life,” Jen Sincero

This book’s title pretty much says it all. It really gives insight on how to be your biggest cheerleader and your biggest enemy when it comes to success and living your best life. It helps identify self-sabotaging habits you probably don’t realize you have until you read it.  This is a really refreshing book to start your year off right.

4.“The 4-Hour Workweek: Escape 9-5, Live Anywhere, and Join the New Rich,” Timothy Ferriss

I don’t know about you, but that title sounds good to me! I just purchased this book, and I am really excited to read it. I have trouble managing my time with everything I need to accomplish.  Ferriss explains how he went from working 80 hour work weeks at $40,000 a year to 4-hour work weeks for $40,000 a MONTH.  Sounds like an awesome read!

5.“The Financial Diet: A Total Beginner’s Guide to Getting Good with Money,” Chelsea Fagan and Lauren Ver Hage

I know (personally) I have a long way to go when it comes to money management (or so my husband says…) and from the reviews I’ve read about this book, it can help anyone achieve that goal in a rational way.  It also gives guidance on how to negotiate your next raise and the perfect cocktail recipe to celebrate after!

Have you read any of these books?  If so, let me know what you thought about it!
