This month in my 5 series I am sharing 5 non-fiction books that I would recommend and I would and will read again. To see the last post in my 5 series click here. If you are also a big reader like myself see my latest blog post on saving money on books right here.
Girl Wash Your Face by Rachel Hollis
This has to be my favourite non-fiction book. The reason for this is it felt like she was speaking to me during so many parts of this book. If you are looking for a motivational read, something that will make you stop and look at whether this is you and make a few changes in your life this is for you.
The Five Love Languages by Gary Chapman
I heard about this book from several podcasts and blogs. I had heard great things so thought why not give it a listen. This book has made a difference in our marriage, we were not in a bad place but this book has shown me how my husband needs love to be shown and it is different to how I recognise love. May sound a little strange as you may have thought like me love is love but we are all so different. I now know his love language and my own, it has given me ideas on both how to be with my husband better and how to communicate what I need more effectively.
Business Boutique by Christy Wright
If you are a woman looking to start their own business or to pursue a life long dream career, this is the book for you. It takes you on a journey of questions that once complete writes out your business plan and gets you on a path to start whatever you have set out to do. I enjoyed listening to the very relateable journey of Christy Wright from her mum’s small business that was her life as a child to the business she started and the career she now has as a Dave Ramsey Personality and speaker. Highly recommend if you are looking to start your own business or have a hobby you think could be more.
How to be a Happier Parent by KJ Dell’Antonia
I had to add this one in even if I am currently only half way through reading. I have added again because this book is so relateable the author offers lots of advice on very common areas of parenting that I know myself, friends and family members discuss and try to help each other on. What the author does however is come from a place of understanding. She is not saying I do everything right so follow me, she is saying I have felt your pain/sadness/frustration/insert emotion on this topic, she tell you parts of her life that make you see she has been where you are. She then talks you through what she has found, what she tried and for her didn’t work and her tips to help you. I am yet to finish this book but if her tips change parts of my parenting for the better I will report back.
Smart Money, Smart Kids by Dave Ramsey an Rachel Cruz
This is written from both the parent (Dave Ramsey) and child (Rachel Cruz) perspective. It takes you through teaching your child about money and setting them up for college/university and beyond. This can be read by parent or child. Look out for my full review on the book in the next few weeks.
Bonus – my next read – The Read aloud Family by Sarah Mackenzie
This is another book I have heard about from podcasts and blogs. I am a lover of books and we read bedtime stories but would love for books to be a little more within the home. Hoping to find tips to help me make reading more of a hobby and self-care for my children as they grow up. I know this starts with me so hoping this book will be a little support I need.
