to read

this year one of my resolutions is to read more. now that i'm graduating college and will be working full-time, i will have much more free time. i realized that when you just work, you can come home and do whatever you want. you can read. you can bake. you can go workout. it's wonderful not having homework! i do have two classes this semester which will require some time, but after April will be free of school for a little while.
and since i love to read and i'm tired of only reading textbooks, i've resolved to read more. i'm currently in the middle of the Harry Potter series, but i want to branch out. so here's what i'm gonna do.
2 classics
2 self-help (already chosen: 7 Habits of Highly Effective People)
2 inspirational/religious

so far i've only chosen to read 7 Habits of Highly Effective People by Steven Covey. I had a goal to read it before i turn 23 so we will see if i can accomplish that! however, i need help choosing the other 5 books to read.
this is where you come in.
i need your recommendations on which books i should read! so please, leave a comment below on a classic/self-help/inspirational book that you love and that you think i should read!


  1. The sunflower. It is my all time favorite book. And I think you would love it because it has to do with humanitarian work.

    Heaven is here. I bawled. It is soo good. Just read it.

  2. The Happiness Project. It will change your life. Here's the link to amazon, its like $7

    Good luck with your resolution!

  3. I was going to say the Happiness Project too.

  4. Oliver Twist, Adam Bede, John Adams, Spencer W. Kimball, Sense and Sensibility

  5. Oliver Twist, Adam Bede, John Adams, Spencer W. Kimball, Sense and Sensibility

  6. Kinda late response, but The Alchemist by Paulo Coelho is wayyyyy good! And I'm only on page 50! Very inspirational.
