5 Books I Want to Read Before Quarantine is Over

Hey guys, happy Monday!

I have a feeling that all this quarantine stuff is slowly but surely coming to end. Here in New York, our ‘stay at home’ order recently got extended to June 6th from May 30th that I believe it originally was.

I know that it seems like a contradiction because our date just got push back and call me overly-optimistic, but it’s just a feeling I’m having.

So, because of this, there are a few things that I’ve been meaning to do before all of this is over and we’re forced to go back to our normal day-to-day routines; one of those things being getting back on top of my reading.

I’ve been slacking a lot recently since I’ve been so focused on the blog, my YT channel, my IG content and now, TikTok haha. It’s not necessarily a bad thing since I have been working and staying on top of everything, but reading has always been just as important to me as all the other things I mentioned and it’s something I really need to get back to.

After all, it is what started my whole love for writing and being creative in the first place, so where would I be without it?

Because of this, I wanted to share with you guys 5 particular books that I’m really excited about hopefully reading before quarantine is officially over. I figure that I share this because I know that I have a ton of followers who are fellow bookworms and who knows, you/they might be interested in reading some of these as well.

So without further adieu…..

*In no particular order*

  1. How to Win Friends & Influence People by: Dale Carnegie

9780671027032__40440.1585912266

An influencer friend of mine actually recommended this book to me. I took her class all about social media, the ins and outs, how to gain a following, create content, etc. and she suggested I read this book because it’s really inspirational and teaches you all but being successful, how to work with people and basically leave your mark on audiences. I’m really excited about reading this one and really hope that it ends up teaching me a lot.

2.  Incomparable by: Nikki & Brie Bella

9781501191916_p0_v2_s1200x630

If you guys didn’t know, I absolutely LOVE these ladies. I loved watching them wrestle, loved watching them on Total Divas and love watching them now on Total Bellas. They are such strong, empowering and inspirational women. So, when I heard and saw that they came out with a memoir, I was so unbelievably excited. I’ve seen bits and pieces of their stories being shown throughout the TV show, but obviously being able to read something like this is SO different and a lot more raw. It literally just came out and I ordered my copy, so I can’t wait for it to come in so I can finally start it! 😀

3. Crystals: The Modern Guide to Crystal Healing by: Yulia Van Doren Goldirocks 

613-oqoEbdL

If you guys happened to see my YT video about my 2020 vision board (if you haven’t, I will leave it linked here), there was a part in my ‘personal’ goals where I mentioned that I want to learn more about spirituality, and part of that would be to learn about crystals and all of its different types of healing powers. So, I found and got this book that’s supposed to be a very basic guide for all that; breaking down all of the different types of crystals, what they do, how to use and care for them, etc. It’s a starting point and then in the future I could always look for and buy more complex books about it if anything.

4. Visual Reference Guides Mythology by: Philip Wilkinson & Neil Philip 

Unknown

This is something that I thought was really cool because it has a ton of like Greek mythology stories and other cultures’ mythology within it as well. I’ve always had an interest in things like this, so I’m really excited to be able to finally read it especially since I’ve kind of had this book for a WHILE.

5. Anything Can Be Healed by: Martin Brofman

41pDx2VYyfL._SX328_BO1,204,203,200_

This one sort of goes hand in hand with the crystal healing book because it’s about spirituality and doing things to heal the body naturally. It teaches about utilizing the chakra system as a body/mind interface for effective energetic healing. I’m really excited about being able to learn about this and tap into the deeper things like this of the mind and body.

I hope that you guys enjoyed this post and possibly got some new book recommendations out of it.

These books are all definitely different from the normal types of books I tend to read, but I’m trying to expand on the things I read and learn about. Plus they all do peak my interests, it’ll just kind of be like watering a plant and watching my interests on these things/topics grow.

Let me know if after each book you guys would want me to do a review on it or something and I will definitely be sure to do that for you! 🙂

Please remember to like this post if you enjoyed it and follow my blog if you haven’t already, and I’ll see you guys in the next one!

Reading List For 2019

*This one is for my fellow book lovers! ❤ *

A new year, a new list of books to try reading before the end of this year.

Last year I had made it a goal of mine to try and read 30 books before the end of 2018, unfortunately with everything that was going on in my life, I wasn’t able to complete/achieve that goal and I had sort of put any sort of reading in the back burner.

I LOVE reading and getting to buy new books, but I suppose that just goes to show how much crap I was going through at the time that distracted me from actually doing the reading.

HOWEVER, I would really like to try and get back to it because I have a TON of books backed up since last year that I really need to get to and am excited to read.

With that being said, I am making it a goal of mine (again), that by the end of 2019, I will have read (and documented that I did so) 30 books or more.  We’re still in January, and I’ve got plenty of time, so I really think I can accomplish this goal if I start ASAP.

So, because of this goal, I wanted to share with you guys a few of the books that were on my reading list at the moment, which is the main purpose of this post today.

Let’s make a challenge out of it, if you’re interested, do what I’m trying to do, and by the end of the year or even throughout the year, tag me in all of the books you end up reading. I’d LOVE to hear from you guys about it, and who knows, we’ll probably even end up recommending a few to to each other along the way to make the list grow longer/faster! 🙂

Scroll down to see the list of all the books I plan on reading throughout the year thus far….
