Hi everyone! You might have read my earlier post about choices we make matters. I wrote that I’m going to change my review policy, meaning I’m going to cut them down to writing only once a month about a book that spoke to me. This is to give you better reviews and free your and my time to do our projects. So, to sum up, my monthly readings, these top 3 books post will be more important, if you want to catch up on what I have read and what books I found worthy of us.
Here is July’s top 3:
- Wintersmith by Terry Pratchett. This is more than a children’s book about witchery, love, and growing up. This is about doing the right thing despite how difficult it is. Also, how we are responsible for the outcomes of our actions. That none of us can outsource them. Plus, there is a beautiful section about how stories shape the world—a fantastic book.
- Me, Myself, and Us: The Science of Personality and the Art of Well-Being by Brian Little. If you want to know yourself, others, and your interaction with others, read this book. The book has a lot to offer, both scientific research done on personality and personality doing the science (Brian Little.)
- The Just City by Jo Walton. A fantasy book that tests if Plato’s Republic might work. The story is written in the spirit of dialogue, and conclusions are made through argument. Truly original book.
Barking Up the Wrong Tree: The Surprising Science Behind Why Everything You Know About Success Is (Mostly) Wrong
by Eric Barker. I listened to this as an audiobook, and I heartily recommend this book. It was the one that pushed me through to change my schedule and start taking my writing seriously again. Don’t think this book is a business success book, but a one that makes you reconsider how you spend your time, what you consider essential, and where you want to go. Full of anecdotes, history figures, studies, and argumentation on how to achieve your goals.
Thank you for reading and have a lovely August! Autumn is coming, and I’m back in my element. I like the cold colorful nights and warm early mornings.
