What To Read This Christmas

I honestly can’t believe that this time in a week it is Christmas Day.

Are you ready for it? I think I am!

I wanted to share with you a list of the books that I have read this year in case you wanted to curl up on the sofa at some point with a good book.

And yes, I really have read 49 books this year.  I aim to read one personal development book a week and can quite easily read a light hearted book in a day if on holiday.

If you only have time to read one book then I would recommend  ‘The Sleep Revolution by Arianna Huffington’. I think we live in a time where a lot of us just aren’t getting enough sleep and the consequences of this can be huge.

If you have time for a second then definitely ‘My Story by Jo Malone’. It is possibly one of the most interesting biographies I have read, I really couldn’t put it down.
