October Treats: Inspirational Reads
The journey to personal development, finding self-love, and decluttering my life of the unnecessary hasn’t been easy. I’ve had major setbacks but that only makes me human, and with that comes vulnerability. All these setbacks and mistakes have taught me so much but the key to personal growth is understanding that learning is an ongoing process.
We’re always a student, despite contrary belief when you finish school.
Isn’t it ironic how most of us begin to emerge ourselves in literature after we’ve graduated from college or finished our studies? At least that’s what happened to me. Sure, I grew up loving books but I HATED required reading. If my teachers told me to read a book or text, chances are, I never did and relied heavily on Spark Notes or skimmed through readings five minutes before class.
Now that I’m in my late 20’s, I’m dying to get 30 minutes just to read, without interruption.
I have a long list of books that I’d love to read but I’m more interested in literature that moves me in one way or another.
I thought I’d share a list of the top 3 books that are currently my favorites. These books have inspired me to begin a journey that I never thought I needed. I’ve been busy living a mediocre life, without knowing that I was meant for more.
Won’t be giving out any details of each book but trust me when I tell you, that they are worth every page and every minute you spend reading it.
You won’t be disappointed!
1. Girl Code by Cara Alwill Leyba
I have the audiobook version and listen to it every single time I’m in the car or while Liam is napping. Girl Code has changed my life in more ways I can explain. It is the mother of all girl books by truly discussing the beauty of women empowerment and supporting one another. GET. IT. NOW.
2. Stripped by Cara Alwill Leyba
Another Cara Alwill Leyba book? It’s not a typo, she’s that amazing. Stripped is a collection of poems that speaks volumes. Are you in the midst of change, growth, or in need of empowerment? Check this baby out and get ready for Cara to slay your life away, yet again!
3. Tuesdays with Morrie by Mitch Albom
I was originally introduced to Tuesdays with Morrie by my stepdad. I’m pretty sure it was borrowed to me but it’s been sitting in my shelf for the past couple years lol finders keepers? I’m in the midst of reading it for the second time and I’m even more touched by this story than I was when I had first read it.
I like books better than people 🙂
I’ve linked each book, just click on the title, so you can easily locate them on Amazon.
What is your current favorite book? Have you read any of the books I listed?
