You’ve made a good choice popping in today because I’ll be sharing one of my passions with you – READING yay!!! More specifically, I’m sharing what’s on my TBR list.
I started reading and enjoying its benefits when I was in primary school. I was a regular at the school library, bingeing on the Sweet Valley High book series when I was finally allowed to pick from the “young adults” section.
That was when my passion for reading really took off!
I really enjoyed the romance and the mystery in those books. It was so addictive.
I’m lucky to enough have an abundance of books at my disposal right here at home and with all this time on my hands at the moment, what better way to spend it than reading?
This is the first time I’ve done a post like this (I think), last year my goal was 20 Books For 2020 (FAIL) so I’m keeping that spirit this year and I will redeem myself!
I am currently reading the book Tumble Turn ( and I’m enjoying it I might add ); which tells the story of South African swimmer Natalie Du Toit and was wonderfully written by Tracey Hawthorne (it’s my dad’s signed copy hehe) – highly recommend.
Currently On My TBR List
These are just books that piqued my curiosity and interest among all the books sitting in our study (and in storage boxes) and they are available for purchase on Amazon.
- Honor Among Thieves – Jeffrey Archer
- The Little Big Things – 163 Ways to Pursue Excellence -Tom Peters
- The Untethered Soul – Michael A. Singer
- Wisdom of the Ages – Wayne W. Dyer
- Touched By a god or Something – Peter Michael Rosenberg
- Body Language – Shelly Hagen
- The Saint, The Surfer And the CEO – Robin Sharma (this will be my second read from this particular author)
- Am I Clever or Am I Stupid – Kobus Neethling & Rache Rutherford
- Creative Visualization – Shakti Gawain
- Angel’s Ink – Jocelynn Drake
- His Stolen Bride by Barbara Dunlop & The Renegade Returns by Dani Wade from Mills & Boon
*some of these books are free with your Audible trial
I plan on raiding the study and storage again to see what else I can add to my pile of books to read this year but I’m thinking, so far so good.
When I moved to Cape Town, I acquired more books to add to my current reading list; which is great because I left all my books at home so the only reading material I had with me was the book The Untethered Soul.
Books I acquired from my sister’s former flatmate:
- Thirteen Hours by Deon Meyer
- Defending Jacob by William Landay (this was the first book I read while at home still job hunting and I highly recommend you check it out!)
- One of Us is Lying by Karen M. McManus
- Buried by Mark Billingham
- The Imagined Child by Jo-Anne Richards
- Knife by Jo Nesbo
- Being Chris Hani’s Daughter by Lindiwe Hani & Melinda Furguson
As you can see this is quite a diverse array of reading material.
In my opinion, reading should be an important part of one’s daily routine (even if you just read magazines or newspaper articles). My daily reading goal is just 30 minutes a day which I’m glad to say I sometimes exceed.
Sometimes I get carried away working on blog posts and binge-watching `that I forget to read and end up feeling really guilty but it’s okay.
Which books are sitting in your TBR list and what are you currently reading? I’m curious so let me know in the comments.
I’ll be sharing the books I actually finished reading by the end of the year so be on the lookout for that post, better yet subscribe and you won’t miss it!
R.E.M.E.M.B.E.R! Reading is knowledge and knowledge is power!
