My Financial Summer Reading List

Summer holidays are just about to start here in the UK and even though they are a very busy time in our house hold I do find I read more. I find that during the summer I am less likely to turn on the TV when the children are in bed and more likely to pick up a book. Many also go on holiday during this time and if like us you will be in a tent and book is a perfect past time at the beach/pool/on a rainy day. So I thought I would share a few financial books that are on my ‘To Read List’:

Love Your Life, Not Theirs

This has been on my list for a few months now. I do think I am getting better at not comparing my life to others, I am getting better at remembering that they maybe at their chapter 20 while I am on my chapter 1. I would love to learn some more habits to help with this as you are a much happier person when you are not spending your time comparing yourself.

Smart Money Smart Kids: Raising the Next Generation to Win with Money

Our next step is to teach our children more about money, I would like them to be more equipped for adult financial life before they leave home. We have three children 7,2 and 1 years old so currently we are only helping our 7-year-old with this but we are not very consistent with it so I do know it is not having the effect it could have.

The Barefoot Investor: The Only Money Guide You’ll Ever Need

This is a new book for 2017, I have seen it go round the Instagram debt free community and have become intrigued to read it. It is an Australian guide however I have used Dave Ramsey’s book which is an American guide and I am going to use this the same way. Once I have read the book I will pull out tips that may help my family and our financial goals and will add them to our plan.

I am not sure I will get through all three in the six weeks the children have off as I am a fan of a romance novel and this one is on my to read list:

I am a huge fan of Tillie Cole and have read many of her books and this is one I have saved for this summer. I would recommend any of her books.

Remember your budget: Even though these books are to help you with living on a budget (or most of them are), if they are not in your budget right now then please do not buy them. Check the library do they have a copy or do you have enough in your budget to buy second-hand? Also you may have a kindle (or another book tablet) you may not have used it in years but remember buying books on there can be cheaper.

What is on your summer reading list?
