Books Read in August 2023

So our Book Club got off to a super strong start last month. I read…

Forgetting Fairytales Book Club

1) 13 Things Mentally Strong People Don’t Do by Amy Morin

I listened to this as an Audiobook with a free Audible trial. It’s the perfect easy-listen, whilst you’re driving, cleaning or walking… And each chapter teaches you something simple yet incredibly powerful, that you can easily apply into your life and relationships.

It’s the kind of book that you can read / listen to, again and again, as long as you keep applying something every time. So it’s certainly one I’ll go back to a second or third time.

2) Don’t Believe Everything You Think by Joseph Nguyen

This book starts with a bold statement, guaranteeing that it will “help you find everything that you’ve been searching for, and give you all of the answers to the questions you’ve ever had.”

The amazing thing is – it certainly doesn’t disappoint!

No joke, it COMPLETELY blew my mind, and put me feeling back in control of my mind. So – if there’s one book you read this month – READ THIS ONE!

I also like the fact it’s a fast, concise read, with just 109 pages, so you can actually get through it within the space of a day (if you want!)

It’s harder to actually apply than it sounds, but it’s certainly a powerful, thought provoking book.

3) Total Law Of Attraction by Dr David Che

I then wanted to swat up on the law of attraction, as it’s something we so often hear about. So I read Dr David Che’s simple breakdown of it, as a quick re-fresh.

Can you BELIEVE and ATTRACT the kind of love you want into your life? Perhaps consider reading this book to then make your own decision, of what is / isn’t possible… and why!

4) Things I Wish I’d Known Before We Got Married by Gary Chapman

Written by the legendary Gary Chapman, the author of #1 New York Times international bestseller The 5 Love Languages, this is certainly a book not to miss!

Not only is it one of the best relationship books for couples

But it’s also an essential dating book for women, and can even be read when you’re single if you know that – when you do get back into dating again – you want to find the right person and not just date for the sake of it.

I have SO MANY notes from this book. It shares simple, practical concepts, but which are focused and eye-opening, so I definitely recommend.

5) What Confident Women Do by Kate Richardson

I loved this book. I listened to this one as an audiobook, when I was driving, showering or getting ready, and so I flew through it in a matter of days.

A lot of the concepts I already knew, which was handy as it meant I didn’t need to stop to take notes. Instead, I was just reminded of them all (which is incredibly valuable – repetition is important for embedding it in your brain.)

I also got a key takeaway which was in the value of journalling and becoming aware of your thoughts by jotting them down, at the time. This I have applied into my life straight away and am finding it far easier to challenge my negative thoughts / limiting beliefs, as a result.

I will likely listen to this book again and again, taking different things from it to apply into my life, each time, and definitely recommend it as one of the best books for building confidence.

6) The Subtle Art of Not Giving a F*ck by Mark Manson

So I grabbed this book as a light, quick read – not expecting to love it as much as I did!

But I really resonated with many key parts of it and it helped to put me back on track, genuinely influencing some of my decisions (for the better!)

That’s All We’ve Got So Far…
