My goal for 2019 was to read a book a week, alternating between self development/business/money with a lil romance fiction. (my favourite!)
I got asked a lot HOW I found time to make this happen, here were my top tips:
- I didn't watch TV or series.
- I didn't mindlessly scroll on social media.
- I took a book in my handbag at all times- waiting at appointments, school etc
- I read before sleeping each night.
This goal not only meant that I spent a lot more of my time wisely, but also expanded my knowledge.
Along the way I have shared some of my favourite reads and it is certainly a question I still get asked everyday, so here is a list of my favourite books from 2019 in the 2 different categories I placed on my reads.
