Every year I try to commit myself into reading more. Unlike all the other years, this year is looking pretty good in terms of that goal. I’d like to share with you the books I’m reading this year to keep myself accountable, to encourage myself to write a short review of each, and perhaps help you find the next book you’ll add to your reading list:

1. Exercise Your Demons by Lucy Irving. This is not really a book, rather, a journal for your emotions. It features different demons named and described in each page and grouped under common emotions of: Anxiety, Regret, Anger, Pride, Greed, Envy, Sloth. Each page allows you to reflect on things like:

  • How your demons are triggered to help you spot them easily,
  • Exercises to help fight the specific demon,
  • What you imagine your demon to look like and what you would say to their faces, and more.

Partnered with the Emotion and Feeling Wheel, you’ll be able to train yourself to identify your emotions and respond to them accordingly.

2. The Untethered Soul by Dr. Michael A. Singer. <currently reading>

3. How To Do The Work by Dr. Nicole LePera (@the.holistic.psychologist). Currently reading, very insightful and includes exercises to assist you in your healing.

4. Way of The Peaceful Warrior by Dan Millman. The first audiobook I finished this year. It’s a half-fiction, half-autobiography by Dan Millman. Much like the Celestine Prophecy, this book teaches you about life in a magical way. If you prefer adventure over the usual personal development books, this is a good fit. Here are my favourite quotes from the book:

“Happiness is satisfaction over desires.”

“[The secret to] happiness is not found in seeking more, but in developing the capacity to enjoy less.”

5. The Surrender Experiment by Michael A. Singer.

6. The Monk Who Sold His Ferrari by Robin S. Sharma.

7. How To Win Friends and Influence People by Dale Carnegie.

8. NIV Chronological Study Bible. Currently reading and it’s amazing! Includes historical parallels of the tales in the Bible plus illustrations.

9. Super Staying Power: What You Need to Become Valuable and Resilient at Work by Jason Seiden.

10. Victory! by Brian Tracy.
