I don’t know how about you but I love reading. I think it really helps you to better understand life, people and yourself. It can also inspire and teach. I just feel better after reading a bunch of the books. The hardest thing for me is to choose what to read that I would not waste my time. Especially when I travel I grab only 1 book for obvious reasons. 😀 Of course, if you have e-reader it is easier. But in this case there are way too many books and sometimes I get lost. So this post is to guide you in the million books out there. My favourite books – to inspire to live, travel, love, that thought me.
The 4-Hour Workweek: Escape 9-5 by Tim Ferris
Since I was little I said I don’t want to work. When I turned 18 I started to work part time jobs together with my studies but just because I liked it. At some point during the studies I have read this book because I knew I don’t want a 8 am to 5 pm job. (Even though I had some of them) Now I am self employed, guiding when I want, traveling the other time. If you relate to this – read this book.
Losing My Virginity: How I Survived, Had Fun, and Made a Fortune Doing Business My Way by Richard Brandson
This book was on a list of the books during my studies ( International tourism business) and it was so good! It is about business but I loved the way it was written. And I got inspired that from nothing you can become a lot! Just do it.
The Alchemist by Paulo Coelho
This is another legendary book. One of my first ones as far as I remember. I read it few times and every time i found something new. Same as with the Little Prince. If you haven’t read it – go and do it tonight! I am not kidding. 😀
As you probably already figured it out I love books that helps my self improvement. If you don’t like reading many books and collecting information – this book is what you need. If you adapt only these habits to your life – it will change. I promise.
Rich Dad Poor Dad: What the Rich Teach Their Kids About Money That the Poor and Middle Class Do Not! by Robert Kyosaki
Another book how to become rich. I am telling you – if you are incepting ideas to your mind – things will start to happen in your life! The way you think is everything. If you are struggling with money – read it! Then you should be always asking ”how can she always has money to travel”… Read and you will understand. 🙂
Homo Deus: A Brief History of Tomorrow by Yuval Noah Harari
It is probably the newest book on this list. Published in 2017. The first book ” Homo Sapiens” is also very good – tells history of humanity. This book is questioning what will happen next. It does not tell you exactly but really makes you think. Like how religion and technology are connected? I would not think that if not the books… Read it if you are curious about the world and what is happening to it.
The Subtle Art of Not Giving a F*ck: A Counterintuitive Approach to Living a Good Life by Mark Manson
This blogger changed my life. Not only with this book but also with his blog. When I was lost in life ( yes I was lost, I would say a looot) I was reading his posts, relating to them and looking for a better life. It was one of the reasons I started this blog – to be that inspiration to one of you.
The 5 Love Languages: The Secret to Love that Lasts by Gary Chapman
This book have opened my eyes to understand how other people show love. I was so concentrated on how I show it, I just assumed everyone else does same. Oh god, I was so wrong! If you are thinking this – you need to change it and this book can really help you. The thing that my dad was buying me food I would never eat just because he thought I will like – was the way to show love. For me was so natural! And he never said ” I love you”” in words – that is my language…
On the Road by Jack Kerouac
You were probably thinking ”so where are those books about actual traveling??”. So here we are. It is really a good one, inspires you to go on a trip (still on my to do list many of them like the one in Switzerland or New Zealand..) The action is in post war USA and it will be a nice rollercoaster of emotions.
The Good Girl’s Guide to Getting Lost: A Memoir of Three Continents, Two Friends, and One Unexpected Adventure by Rachel Friedman
I love this book as I relate to it and also learned a lot. On a whim, a girl decides to buy a ticket to Ireland where she met a free-spirited Australian girl who inspires her to travel to Australia and South America. It is a funny and honest memoir of how she breaks free from her shell as she travels across three continents, learning how to live in the moment. And this is exactly what I always seek – to live in a moment, get out of the comfort zone.
