Guest of the month is a monthly event hosted by Emily over @ Emily Reads Everything
. It’s a great way to meet new people and we get to spotlight our partners by posting on each other’s blog. We are also given a topic to talk about.
This month’s topic was:
The top 5 books I’m looking forward to this year
Allow me to introduce to you Michael from Your Own Pay:
There are several different books I want to read in 2016, some of which I’ve already read once or twice before. These books are motivational and inspirational for the most part, however I have to throw a bit of fiction in there as well. The books in no particular order are below, with a brief description as to why I want to read these particular books.
The first book would be Napoleon Hill’s think and grow Rich
, a classic book that helps put me in the right mind frame of what I need to do in order to make things happen. There are several different things we don’t think about, and if you change the way you think about what you’re doing, it’s possible to revolutionize your lifestyle. I have already read this particular book, however I have to put it as my number one book because I know I’m going to read it again probably before the first quarter of 2016 is over.
The next book is a book by, Peter Putnam, and it’s titled Love in the Lead: The Miracle of the Seeing Eye Dog
: . Recently, I received a dog guide from the seeing eye, and this book details the history of this organization. It’s also written by a blind individual, so I personally find that to be very motivational. If you’re looking for some amazing stories, definitely check out this book because I’ve already almost finished it, and this month isn’t even over…
Rich dad poor dad by Robert T. Kiyosaki
, is the third book I know I’m going to read again and I can’t wait for it. It’s interesting how we might think one way, because we were raised that way, however the viewpoint of another individual who was raised differently can change the way we think about what we are doing. Like think and grow Rich, this book definitely can change lives, especially if you take notes on what you learn, read the book more than once, and most importantly take action on the information that you’re learning.
Probably to kill some time, I’ll read a book by Stuart Woods. Until I found motivational authors, this guy was my favorite author of all time. I just connect with all of his characters, in any of his series. Oh yeah, and the “Naked Greed”
book looks like a amazingly good one too… like all of his other stone books, this one will definitely keep me on the edge of my seat. And I didn’t even realize that he had this book out until I did a little bit of research on some of the books he will be releasing and or has released, looks like I might have to push some of those motivational books back a little bit.
After i’m done with Wood’s Naked Greed book, I have to read a book my wife recommended. The only reason I put this book last is because it’s part of a series, and she’s purchased a few of the books off of iBooks and I’m pretty sure will be completing purchasing the rest of the series within the next week or so. According to her these are good books, and I’m definitely going to have to check them out so her and I can share our thoughts about them. I put this book last, because once I start a series I like to finish it. The name of the book is “January: Calendar Girl Book 1” by Audrey Carlan. Like my music selections, my book selections are very eclectic.
That’s a quick glimpse into the books I’ll be reading in 2016, probably will finish all of them, maybe not the entire calendar girl series but at least the first book or two, before April. What books are you planning to read in 2016? Feel free to leave a comment and let us know! Don’t forget to check out the guest of the month club, learn more about it on emily’s blog here.
