Books: South Korea, Plastic & Suicide

In this post, I am going to share with you 5 books you are going to love. I read some amazing books this summer and couldn’t wait to share them with you! I usually share my favorite books on my YouTube channel and I decided to share them on here instead.

The Four Tendencies

I greatly enjoy Gretchen Rubin’s books and couldn’t wait to read this one. The book is about different personality types and how we tend to respond to expectations. Sounds boring? Hold on! Gretchen discovered that people usually fit into Four Tendencies and I’ve gained some valuable insights by reading her book. Have you ever wondered why respond to expectations the way you do? Then this book is for you.

Plastic Purge

This is one of the most important books on this list and one of my favorite reads of 2018. The book tackles a very important question, “Is it possible to use less plastic and be happier and healthier?”. In Plastic purge, Michael shares scientifically-backed information with easy-to-follow advice and steps for how to use less plastic. If you are interested in being a little kinder to the environment and all its people (that includes you!) then I highly recommend reading it.

The Girl With Seven Names

This book is a must-read for anyone interested in North Korea – a country that a lot of us know little to nothing about. The book is about a young woman who grew up in North Korea and managed to successfully escape. The book will give you extraordinary and shocking insights into life under one of the most brutal dictatorships.

The Power

This is, hands-down, my favorite book that I got to read this summer. I usually don’t read fiction and the minute I stumbled upon this book I couldn’t resist but put a hold on it. Have you ever wondered what would happen if women suddenly possessed a fierce new power? I read this book within a day and highly recommend reading it, even if you usually (just like me ..) aren’t all that much into fiction.

13 Reasons Why

I waited almost a year to read this book. Yes, I said it, I waited a really long time to read this book – what can I do – the waiting list at my library was incredibly long! It’s about a young teenager who committed suicide. Her classmates discovered several cassette tapes recorded by her right and the book guides you through her life and the moments leading up to her death. Suicide is a really important topic and this book does, in my opinion, a great job of highlighting the tragedy that goes with it all.

      Hi Sally, I don’t have a Goodreads account, unfortunately. It would be another account that would need updating and I wouldn’t want to commit to that! :S
