My Recommended Reading for Summer 2020

My Recommended Reading for Summer 2020

Despite everything going on recently, there have been some positives. One of which is having more time to read. I used to love reading when I was younger, but with the demands of normal everyday life, it can be hard to find time to snuggle up and get lost in a good book. 

The past couple of months, I have made a conscious effort to pick up my book and find a quiet corner at the weekend or evenings. I’ve trawled through a mixture of both personal development and fiction books and thought I would share some of my favourites with you.

1. The Flat Share by Beth O’Leary

Unless you’ve been living under a rock recently, I’m sure you’ll have seen The Flat Share plastered across Instagram. What a book! I thoroughly enjoyed being able to lose myself in this book and get immersed in the beautiful characters Beth has created. 

2. Predatory Thinking by Dave Trott

If you work in marketing or have your own small business, this is a great book to read and get the creative juices flowing!

3. Grown Ups by Marian Keyes

I don’t think I’ve read a book so fast in a long time – I loved it! A captivating and relatable tale about the dynamics of a large family.

4. Tools of Titans by Tim Ferriss

A hefty read, but I am thoroughly enjoying this book. Heard of the 4-hour work week? It’s the same guy who wrote this book, but the text is taken from a weekly podcast he runs which highlights key snippets and personal development motivation from the podcast episodes. Tim interviews successful people on his podcast

5. Never Greener by Ruth Jones

I was originally drawn to this book as Ruth Jones writes Gavin and Stacey so I thought it must be good – and it was!

6. The One Thing by Gary Keller

This has been a saviour during lockdown. I think we’re all guilty of putting too much pressure on ourselves to achieve a huge to do list, but sometimes, you just need to focus on one thing.
