The 5 Books on my Nightstand

1. "Girl Wash Your Face" by Rachel Hollis 

I checked out her podcast while I was waiting for the book and honestly I found it a bit boring (sorry). There is a lot of hype around the book right now (I am currently on Chapter 1). It's a motivational book in which Rachel, the author exposes 20 different lies that we tell ourselves.

2. "Unfu*k Yourself" by Gary John Bishop

I believe you could be unfu*ked after reading this book! The information in this book is very simple and easy to understand. This book is about 7 assertive affirmations that you can begin living by to change your world. It's a straight forward no BS way to take charge of your life!

3. "High Performance Habits" By Brendon Burchard

This is the latest book by Brendon Burchard. He highlights 3 personal and 3 social habits for achieving long-term success. This book reminds us to focus on the positive energy that we put out to others. 

4. "The Subtle Art of not Giving a Fuck" by Mark Manson

Witty, insightful, philosophical writer. Highly recommended for someone who is stuck in the "victim mindset".  I found the reviews were mixed on this one but there is valuable content in chapters 1, 2 and 9. 

5. "The Gifts of Imperfection"

I have this one as an e-book on my iPad. If you haven't heard of Brene Brown you might be living under a rock. This book challenges the messages that we receive from the media and society about how we need to look perfect and lead perfect lives in order to be happy.
