Here is a mix of books that I want to read in 2018. It is a mix of non-fiction, fiction and parenting books. Aiming to read atleast one book per month.

  1. Listful thinking: using lists to be more productive, highly successful and less stressed by Paula Rizzo

2. Tribe of Mentors: Short life advice from the best in the world by Tim Ferriss. This book is on my to-do list simply because unlike many business books I have read, this one has a different approach. Where all other business book offer’s authors key advice. In this book, on the other hand, the author narrates the advice that he took from all the mentors that worked for him.

3. The subtle art of not giving a F*ck: A counterintuitive approach to living a Good life by Mark Manson.     This book’s title is so interesting that I had to add this to my to-do list. This book, I am told is all about how to set realistic expectations. How to embrace our fears and uncertainties.

4. How to Win Friends & Influence People: In this competitive world today, everything is .networking. Being an introvert I find it difficult to approach people and start a conversation. Want to work on acquiring that skill this year

5. The Power of Habit: Why we do what we do in life and business by Charles Duhigg.  I as a person have always had difficulties to follow habits and routines

6. The art of happiness, Dalai Lama: This is because every once in a while we all need to be reminded that happiness can be found within and is a state of mind and not determined by one’s external conditions.

7. You can heal your life: This is the second book by Louise Hay. First being Heal your body. I too believe that there is a strong connection between our mental health and physical health.

8.  The Seven Spiritual Laws of Success: written by Deepak Chopra, it is a practical guide to the fulfillment of your dreams. This book is on this list simply because I have not read a single book by him and I must. Its high time already.

9. No Bad Kids: The next three books I have included is because I am a new mom and just want to learn how to nurture and discipline my child the best way possible.

10. Baby & Childcare, Dr Spock’s: its a comprehensive book on childcare and parenting, I borrowed this one from my friend when I was pregnant. Still haven’t been able to finish it, but it really is a very helpful book on dealing with infants issues, toddlers, and teenage tantrums.

11. Bringing Up Bebe: The tagline of this book is, “the secret behind France’s astonishingly well-behaved children. And this book was sold to me.

12. The Good Daughter: All work and no play makes Renuka a dull gal. So threw in a thriller fiction just for entertainment.
