The Books I Read & Loved in 2016
We often receive emails asking what books I would personally recommend for certain things, or the books I am reading currently. So I thought I'd share a post focusing on what books I read in 2016, & follow it up regularly with a review post of certain books I am reading currently.
I am quite a slow reader, & to be honest, I have always loved books & the idea of reading, but I have never been much of reader myself. Well, come the beginning of 2016 I realised that I had collected so many books, filled with inspiration & knowledge, therefore I decided it was time to begin a new hobby & read them! So I set out to read a book a month, I didn't quite get there (as Shantaram was a very long read for me!), but I am so happy with what I read in 2016 none the less. This year I am aiming for one-two books a month, so we will see how I go! I have loved working reading into my days as a ritual, it's been really fulfilling.
I won't write a lengthy review for each book, as I merely want to share what I read, but if I feel called to share something from the book below, I will.
2. Dear Lover
Such an incredible book for those wanting to strengthen their relationship & learn more about their partner.
3. Lab Girl
4. Big Magic
A very inspiring book for creatives. This book gave me even moire permission to be creative & authentic. If you feel stifled creatively, or blame your creativity for 'why you can't do things' I could not recommend this book more!
5. Womens Wisdom Wellness
I love Dr. Libby & all she teaches.
6. The Art of Timing
This was my favourite book I read all year, it taught me so much about the importance of syncing daily life rituals to the cycle of the moon. I learn about the best times within the lune cycle to garden, clean & lots more.
7. The Essential Rumi
I have been called to study Rumi's work for a while now, so I bought this this book India back in January of 2016 & have loved delving into his poetry.
8. The Way of Tea
