Favourite Books of 2017

Happy blogmas day 20!

2017 is finishing and I’ve read a lot of books this year. Truthfully, I do like to try and review every single book I read but honestly, I don’t always get the chance or simply, I don’t do it. I don’t review every single book because well 1. They might be rubbish and so bad that I don’t care to review them. 2. Life gets in the way and University is a priority so instead of uploading a review I might just upload a post that’s been in my drafts for a while (lazy yes, practical yes). This year I have read my fair share of books, just like I do every year so I have carefully gathered my 8 favourite books of 2017, I hope you enjoy. Fortunately for you, I have written reviews on all of these books so go ahead and click on the links, they’ll take you to where you need to go for the review.

Choose Your Happiness

Recently I’ve been all about the happy in my life. If I don’t like it, I lump it. All I ever want is to be and feel happy and by achieving that, I’ve done everything I can be stay positive and keep the happy in and the negativity out. 

As we change and life gets on top of us, we realise that we’re often ignoring the things that really make a difference in our lives. So many people ignore this and many people never do something about it. It’s crazy to me that our lives become so tangled that we’re consumed by the people and the things that mean very little and not enough of the things that truly make a difference. 

Like I said, my mission these past few months is to really make a difference in my happiness. To do this I made a list, a list of pros and cons about my life. This might seem a little weird but honestly it made the world of difference. For years I’ve thought that certain things in my life weren’t necessary and I didn’t need them to make me happy but really, this list made me see otherwise. 

Number 1. Remove the people, the materialistic things and the negativity by choosing what makes you happy. Does your job make you happy? Your friends? Your home? The city/town you live in? Carefully consider the aspects of your life and decide what and who you need. 

Number 2. Do something about it. You may think quitting your job, moving somewhere new or removing people from your life is hard. I don’t disagree with that at all, it is! However, without the change you’ll never see your happy ending. 

Number 3. Don’t be afraid to stand your ground. Be assertive, understand what you want and commit. If that means upsetting a few people along the way then so be it. Sometimes we all have to be a little selfish. We all have to do something that others might not be happy with, but if you are then go ahead. Bitches get shit done. So don’t be a push over. 

Number 4. Do more of the things that make you happy.
