Reading has always been one of my favourite past times. There’s nothing like curling up under the covers with some hot cocoa and a good book.
I gave myself the goal of reading one book per month this year. These are the 12 books that I want to read this year. Add these books to your reading inspiration for 2024.

Lately I have found myself soo busy that I haven’t been making the time to slow down and relax with a good book. I find once I start reading, I have a hard time stopping. so I just have to start.

One of my many New Year resolutions for 2024 was to read more books. On any topics. Just read more. I gave myself the goal of reading at least 12 books this year. 1 book per month.

Hopefully, I’ll get back into my love for reading, and end up reading way more than 12 books. But for now,

These are the 12 books I want to read in 2024 | Reading Inspiration 2024

The Subtle Art of Not Giving a F*
Mark Manson

Honestly, I’ve heard a lot of good reviews on this book. It challenges readers to stop always trying to be ‘positive‘, and instead be honest about values and finding out what really matters to us.

Rich Dad Poor Dad
Robert T. Kiyosaki

This book has been in my library for a couple years now, although I never seem to finish it. 2024 will be the year I read it completely.

Robert shares some great life and money skills that I find are great for people like me, looking for ways to have a better relationship with money overall.
The chapters that I have read, have all been amazing & I cant help but taking notes.

Perks of Being a Wallflower
Stephen Chbosky

How have I not read this book already!? Yeah, exactly. This book has always been on my reading bucket list since I was a teenager.

The Perks of Being a Wallflower is a 1999 young adult novel by American author Stephen Chbosky. Set in the early 1990s, the novel follows Charlie, an introverted and observant teenager, through his freshman year of high school in a Pittsburgh suburb. Wikipedia

Michelle Obama

Another book that I’ve had in my library for a couple years now.
I’ve always been inspired by Michelle Obama, especially with her being the first black First Lady of the United Stated.
This book has been listed as a powerful, wise and inspiring book.

Can’t Hurt Me
David Goggins

A great book for learning how to train your mindset to defy all odds, no matter the circumstances.
How the power of hard work really can get you to the places that you want to be in life.

A story of David Goggin’s personal transformation of his own life that is inspiring and moving.

Bridge To Terabithia
Katherine Patterson

Another book that I have been meaning to read since my teens. I have yet to even watch the movie.
A children’s book with magical kingdoms and whimsical imagination is an absolute must to escape the realities of life.

Mandela’s Way: Lessons on Life
Richard Stengal

Profound book capturing the 15 life lessons that Nelson Mandela would like to share with the world.

So inspiring and well written.

Pride & Prejudice
Jane Austen

Classic romance novel from the 1800’s. A book I’ve been longing to read for an eternity now. Its just one of those books I feel like i must read at least once in my life.

‘A wonderful romance, lovable characters, humor, and beautiful writing” – Pikes Peak Library District

The Great Gatsby
F. Scott Fitzgerald

A classic timeless tale of Jay Gatsby, a self made millionaire and the pursuit of the love of his life, Daisy Buchanan.

A romance novel set in 1825 that will never get old.

Harry Potter: The Order of the Phoenix
J.K Rowling

The goal is to hopefully be able to read the whole series this year. I’m on book #5, and the story just keeps on getting better and better.

To Kill A Mockingbird
Harper Lee

This book has been on my reading list since I was younger. It was one of those books that we should have read in school, but I didn’t get the chance to.

To Kill a Mockingbird is a 1961 novel by Harper Lee. Set in small-town Alabama, the novel is a bildungsroman, or coming-of-age story, and chronicles the childhood of Scout and Jem Finch as their father Atticus defends a Black man falsely accused of rape. Scout and Jem are mocked by classmates for this.

The Mamba Mentality: How I Play
Kobe Bryant

I’m not even going to lie and say that I am a huge basketball fan or even a huge Kobe Bryant fan.
He was a really amazing basketball player, husband and father, and his death was extremely tragic.
That being said, definitely would like to read about how, and why the Black Mamba known as Kobe Bryant became the man that he was.

There you have it. Those are the 12 books that I am determined to read this 2024 year.

Wish Me Luck!
