Can you believe it’s already September? Just like that summer is over and fall has meandered its way back into our lives. I’m super excited because fall is my favorite season and it’s the perfect time to curl up with a good book.
I typically read two to three books a week. However, getting sick at the top of this year changed everything. I could barely read a full paragraph. My cognition is getting stronger every day and I’m looking forward to reading five really good books this fall.
HERE ARE 5 BOOKS FOR YOUR FALL READING LIST:
BY BRIAN TRACY
To be honest, I began listening to this audiobook at the beginning of August. I love everything I’ve heard so far. Tracy’s book encourages readers (or listeners) to cultivate the art of self-discipline, focus on self-mastery, and take the risk to fulfill one’s vision. I’d recommend the audiobook because it will give your mind time to really absorb the principles Tracy shares (and there are quite a few).
BY PAUL KALANITHI
As my health improves I don’t want to lose sight of the lessons I’ve learned in this season of rest. Kalanithi’s book chronicles his journey from diagnosis to death by cancer. The twist is he’s a neurosurgeon. So not only is he physically experiencing the pains of his illness; he is also intellectually aware of exactly how his body is attacking itself. This book speaks to me on a cellular level. I know what it’s like to be intellectually aware and physically betrayed by my own body. This book will stay on my nightstand, which means I’ll read it at night right before bed.
BY VICTOR BOC
Boc’s book title is what caught my eye. I adore books that speak in hyperbole. This book promises to be an all money problem solver forever which tells me that it will have more to do with mental practices than actual financial management.
At this time I am not earning an income. But this doesn’t mean that I shouldn’t stretch my mental money muscles. Passive and earned income will flow again soon.
Also, the American spending season is rapidly approaching and I want to be strong, secure, and solid in my spending habits.
BY BRENE BROWN
Honestly… I’m scared to read Brown’s book: Rising Strong. I’ve heard the book is about what to do after a failure and how to be kinder to yourself in the process of dusting yourself off and getting back. I’m scared to unpack the truths that will result in great changes in my life. My therapist and I have already begun to end, begin, and manage old and new relationships. But I’m still a little nervous to learn the science that supports the tough decision I know are ahead.
BY MARIE KONDO
Truthfully, I read this book last year around Christmas and it truly is life changing. The principles of tidying up worked so well that I tidied myself right out of what was becoming a very miserable life. Obviously, the book shares what you should do with all your things. The magic happens after you get your things in the right place.
I recommend these book for your fall reading list because this is the season when most people fall. Metaphorically, physically, and emotionally we fall when summer transitions to fall. This isn’t supposed to be a difficult thing. My hope is that my fall reading list will equip me and you to truly enjoy the fall.
