Top 10 books that will change your life for the better

I started the year with a resolution to read more as I hardly got to read last year. I am so proud to say I have just finished reading my 15th book and I decided to compile this list to share my ten favourites and the ones which I feel have been particularly powerful.

I believe a book can inspire new and fresh ideas as well as different ways of thinking which have the positive knock on effect of introducing the power to transform our lives. I usually start my day with reading a chapter, sometimes two depending on how much time I have, whilst enjoying my morning coffee. I find that this really helps set my mindset for the day, combined with journalling and meditation. I spend an hour a day on this and it has really changed the way I approach my day.

I hope you enjoy reading them! I have shared an Amazon Affiliate link for each one and would be so grateful if you decide to order any of these books if you could use my link as every little helps 🙂

Happy reading xx

Top 10 books that will change your life for the better

The Miracle Morning for Entrepreneurs:Elevate Your SELF to Elevate Your BUSINESS

This book really helped me develop a morning routine, use my time more efficiently and really help structure my day.

The Code of the Extraordinary Mind by Vishen Lakhiani

This is one hell of an amazing book – Vishen’s style of writing is really engaging, and the accompanying resources are also super.


The Universe Has Your Back: How to Feel Safe and Trust Your Life No Matter What by Gabrielle Bernstein

If you need a motivation boost, or are going through a tough time, this book is really great! It is also a fantastic introduction into the Law of Attraction.

Worthy: Boost Your Self-Worth to Grow Your Net Worth by Nancy Levin

Another fantastic book for a motivational push! Really helps put things into perspective.


The Strengths Book by Sally Bibb

I adore this book – it is such a great size too, perfect to pop in your handbag or satchel, and with so many useful exercises, to really help you identify your strengths. This would be perfect for schools, universities, the workplace, and general life. Someone close to me used this to help prepare for an interview and found it invaluable!


Radical Self-Love: A Guide to Loving Yourself and Living Your Dreams by Gala Darling

Another great motivation enhancing book and generally lots of useful advice on how to deal with life, day to day situations, relationships, friendships etc

A great work book style book which helps you map out your desires, goals and work out what you want to do.

Invaluable for anyone thinking of starting a business to help you get the right mindset, identify your self worth and gives lots of tips and ideas on how to develop your income streams.


The Life-Changing Magic of Not Giving a F**k: The bestselling book everyone is talking about (A No F*cks Given Guide) by Sarah Knight

This is such a fantastic book on teaching you how not to be bogged down by negative situations and how to block out the fear of what people might think of you. Written so well, and the perfect read for tube journeys.


Essentialism: The Disciplined Pursuit of Less by Greg McKeown

This book is so practical and useful and helps you change your mindset about what is truly essential in life and what isn’t. It is quite common sense but so helpful to read as sometimes we just don’t act upon things and this is a fantastic reminder.

Have you read any life changing books? I would love to know what they are to add to my reading list 🙂

  1. The best book that I’ve read recently is Chasing the Rainbow by Poorna Bell about her late husband’s lifelong battle with depression and addiction. She writes in such an honest, approachable and informative way, and given the subject matter, it’s surprisingly funny in parts as well. I thoroughly recommend it – it’s just been released in paperback as well x

  2. I’m so intrigued by a few of these (and adored Miracle Morning, The Strengths Book & The Art of Not Giving A F***)!
