Books to Read in 2019 🌻 inspiring, mind-opening, life-changing books

Here are my picks for the best books to read in 2019. I love reading and can owe my current mindset and life to the books I’ve read. These are some of my favorite books that I’ve split into the categories of soul, business, love, creativity and culture. Check below for links & resources and also, please share your book recs with me!

Books are the most affordable way to obtain a wealth of knowledge that can change your life. Think about it – authors take knowledge and wisdom from their lifetime or from years of research and condense the most valuable takeaways into an organized, digestible book for you to read. You can’t live a hundred different lives in this one lifetime but you can read hundreds of books, learning from and vicariously experiencing hundreds of life experiences, perspectives, lessons and insights from the people who wrote them.

What are your favorite type of books to read? Mine are: self help (obv), business, psychology, spirituality – I also love to read webtoons. Does anyone here read those?! 🌞
