The Go-Giver Leader, by Bob Burg & John David Mann

The leadership lessons are taught through an entertaining story about an acquisition of a close-knit family business; my favourite quote in the book was “your influence is determined by how abundantly you place other people’s interests first.

Enough Bull: How to Retire Well Without the Stock Market, Mutual Funds or Even an Investment Advisor, by David Trahair

I was very interested in this book as I am a believer in stock market investing and this book is advocating the opposite; David presented his idea backed up with numbers and analysis and it did encourage me to seriously consider his point of view; however, there were a few small parts of the book that were a little difficult to understand if you did not have a finance background so be prepared for some Googling

The Secret Thoughts of Successful Women, by Valerie Young

I started reading this book thinking I might not resonate with it but ended up feeling extremely empowered and inspired; one of the most life-changing books for me; would recommend even if you don’t suffer from imposter syndrome or aren’t a woman.

The Year of Less, by Cait Flanders

I enjoyed following Cait’s journey on her one-year shopping ban that she realized after was never about money, but about finding herself and her values; there is a small section at the end of the book with instruction on how to start your own shopping ban.


Clear My Name, by Paula Daly

This book was a good husband’s-lover-murdered story with surprising twists; enjoyed Paula’s writing style – smooth, easy to follow and engaging.

The Mystery of Three Quarters, by Sophie Hannah

This was the second Hercule Poirot book I read written by Sophie Hannah (the famous detective character was created by the late Agatha Christie) and I finally fell in love with the new take by Sophie after not feeling as much love when I read the first one by her (to be fair, Agatha was a LOT to live up to).
