My all-time favourite books

I get asked a lot what my favourite books are, so I decided to chuck them all on this page with a little bit of context.


These books have all had a really big impact on me - a lot of them have changed my view on life and a lot of them have changed the way that I live my life.


I'll probably pop in once every six months to update this list, so keep an eye out for new books as I add them.

Books That Have Hugely Impacted My Life

THE GIFTS OF IMPERFECTION


Brene Brown is one of my favourite humans of all time and this book had a huge impact on the way that I treat myself on an every day basis.

THE 80 / 20 PRINCIPLE


If you're feeling lost, overwhelmed or busy without a purpose, the 80/20 principle is life changing.

GETTING THINGS DONE


GTD is a book that has totally changed the game for me - it's an out of the box productivity system. It's a little tough to read, but once it clicks it can make a huge difference in your peace of mind. 

DEEP WORK


Another productivity / success related book. If you read this bad boy through and decide to delete all of your social media and block out an hour a day to work on your goals, you can thank me later ;)

THE 12 WEEK YEAR


This book prompted me to set 3 monthly goals and create a level of accountability for my goals that I otherwise wouldn't have. It's been a game changer.

THE LIFE CHANGING MAGIC OF TIDYING UP


If you didn't know that this book has had a huge impact on my life - Hi!! Welcome to the community you beautiful human you. This book has been the biggest catalyst for change in my life.

Books That I'll 100% Re-Read

COME AS YOU ARE


You probably weren't expecting me to slip a female sexuality book in here, but here we are. Come as you are is a friggin excellent book. Give it a read if you want to understand more about how tf we work as women.

I THOUGHT IT WAS JUST ME


Shock! Another Brene Brown book?? This book is brilliant when it comes to helping you to work through shame, people pleasing and self love.

REST


Deep work by Cal Newport + this book = a v successful life.

How to be yourself


Ellen Hendriksen is a true badass babe and social anxiety and shyness really haven't been talked about enough. If you struggle with social anxiety or are even a little shy and want to get a little more comfortable socially, give this book a read.

religion for athiests


Alain de Botton is the guy behind the youtube channel 'The School of Life'. If you haven't binge-watched 'The School of Life' videos yet, do that now.

lost connections


I read this book after listening to a fantastic podcast episode by the author. If you struggle with depression, know someone who is struggling with depression or are just interested in designing a society where depression isn't so dang common, give this book a read. 
ATOMIC HABITS

I love James Clear and think he's fantastic. This is like the bible on building habits - before you build your next habit, give it a read.
