2019 Reading Challenge

If you are reading this, you already know how much I love books, especially ones that teach me something or awaken a passion or hep me on my spiritual journey. So this list will consist mostly of spiritual books, maybe a little bit of fiction thrown in.

I've set myself a challenge to read 52 books, that's one book a week. And if we are close friends or family, you already know how big 2019 is going to be, so this makes it an even bigger challenge.

I'll be updating this blog as I finish a new book. Starting from most recent to oldest. I hope you enjoy and I'd love if you used the comment section to tell me what you are reading so we can do this together.

And if you have read any of the books already on my list, please let me know what you thought.


Week 7 - Book 7

The Spark in the Machine by Daniel Keown

Another amazing book. This one is all about how the Science of Acupuncture explains the mysteries of Western Medicine. It's fantastic. If you are interested in medicine, especially embryology, acupuncture or even yin yoga. It is a must read. It's just so eye-opening how the Chinese Taoist Sages knew so much, thousands of years ago. Some things only Western Science is discovering now.

Week 6 - Book 6

Eternal Treblinka by Charles Patterson

What a book! I've read many books about the ethical treatment of animals, they all made me sob but this one didn't, I think because there was so much to learn and so much information. I learnt so much about the treatment of animals but more about the Holocaust. Eternal Treblinka looks at the similarities between the Holocaust and slaughterhouses and how animals in the world are treated.

It's a great read and a completely life changing book, you read to read it to understand it fully.

Week 5 - Book 5

The Tenth Insight by James Redfield

I loved the first book (The Celestine Prophecy) and this one didn't disappoint. I didn't know what to expect, I tend to read books that I see recommended on Amazon or Goodreads and rarely read what the summary says.

Turns out it is about reincarnation (again). But of course there is more to the book than just reincarnation, it was a great book that really makes you question things.

Week 4 - Book 4

Ishmael by Daniel Quinn

What a beautiful book. Ishmael is all about how we, The Takers, view the world. It is one of those books that make you deep dive into the way you think of the world and the people in it. One of my absolute favourite books ever, a must read for everyone.

Week 3 - Book 3

Between Death & Life by Dolores Cannon

If you read my most recent blog post about my favourite books I read in 2018, you'll know I am fascinated with reincarnation. This book answered a few lingering questions I still had and it was so informative. I wouldn't read it as my first reincarnation book as I think the author already assumes you know a lot already. I will definitely be adding some of her other books to this years list.

Week 2 - Book 2

Crazy Rich Asians by Kevin Kwan

Not my usual book but I felt I needed some light-hearted fiction. I loved the Crazy Rich Asians movie and the book didn't disappoint. It was better but the ending wasn't the same and I ended it wanting more, I then discovered that it is a trilogy so I am so happy to have two more books in the series.

Week 1 - Book 1

Eat, Pray, Love by Elizabeth Gilbert

I've been seeing this book everywhere for years but I don't know why it took me to long to read it. It's a lovely book, I really enjoyed it. I felt like it was more about finding self love than anything else, and when that happens, everything else in life will fall into place.
