Shine Book Club


I've always had a love for books and so vividly remember reading book after book when I was young, long into the night, under the covers with a torch.

One day my dream is to be a published author with a big publishing house but in the meantime I will stick to reading all the beautiful and amazing books already published.  I currently have a love for personal growth books so they are on high rotation with a few non-fiction thrown in. 

For 2020 I have set an intention to read 50 books.  I have started off the year strong.  Below are the books that are currently on my to-read list and I will note next to them once I have finished them. Read along with me or let me know any great books I have left out, I always love to discuss a great book.
