I have always loved to read. Reading can open your mind, shift how you view the world, or even transport you to other worlds… Books have played a big part in my transformation and healing. Below are books that really struck a cord with me; a lot of personal growth books with a couple epic fictions as well.

Stay tuned to this space as I’ll keep adding books as I go along.

The Universe Has Your Back

The Universe Has Your Back – Gabrielle Bernstein

One of the first books I read on my spiritual journey and still one of my favourites. Offering simplified guidance on returning to a state of love and trust in the Universe. This book has a beautiful flow to it and makes for easy reading.
