Do you ever just wake up one day and have loads of energy? Yeah, me neither. Sometimes however, I come across something that inspires me and gets me excited about life. Right now, this “something” is self-improvement books. Through life’s ups and downs there’s one thing that will remain constant: your ability to react. And often enough, how you react will determine whether the next hill takes you up or down.
Currently, life is a bumpy road. If I’m honest, I’d say that most of 2014 was a bit bumpy. It had its good moments, but I’m looking forward to a new year and hopefully a fresh start in a new place. Between school, part-time work, finding full-time work, blogging, and other little things, I’m a bit overwhelmed. Planning the future is hard when the future won’t allow you to plan it. In the meantime, I’m going to enjoy spending time reading a few books I’ve wanted to get my hands on. I’m a pretty independent girl but I also strive to be a classy lady. The books I choose to read will reflect that.
5 Books on My Reading List
1. “It” by Alexa Chung
2. “#Girlboss” by Sophia Amoruso
3. “Classy: Exceptional Advice for the Extremely Modern Lady” by Derek Blasberg
4. “Place to Go, People to See” by Kate Spade
5. “How to Marry Money” by Kevin Doyle
Some of these are more for pleasure and entertainment than self improvement, but hopefully I’ll enjoy reading them and learn a thing or two. Let me know what books you might like me to review!

I’m all about self help books, and my most recent read was #girlboss. Amoruso definitely has a unique and hilarious voice, which made it a very entertaining and inspirational read. Hope you enjoy it!
