The Books By My Bedside.

Cookbooks, self-help and some stories that will give you all the feels – these are the books I’ll be making my way through in the near future.

The Barefoot Investor by Scott Pape – You may have seen this book mentioned in my Goals for 2018 post. This year I want to read this little book of financial wisdom and, like a devout Christian with the bible, I’m going to live by it! This year is the year that I priorities saving as well as ensuring I spend my money on things that give me joy. I’m about 80 pages in so far and I’m really appreciating how easy it is to read, understand and implement. This book goes off for a reason.

The Roasting Tin: Simple One Dish Dinners by Rukmini Iyer – Another one that relates back to my goals for the year, one of them being to try one new recipe every week. I love how simple it is to chuck a bunch of ingredients into a baking dish and let it do its thing. This week I tried out a bulgur wheat recipe with roasted peppers, tomatoes, feta and pine nuts. A super tasty and handy recipe for mid-week lunches.

The Modern Cook’s Year by Anna Jones – I’m a big fan of Anna’s other two cookbooks so I was pretty pumped when I saw she had realised yet another vegetable encyclopedia. That’s right, all the recipes are vego and my gawwwd they are tasty, satisfying and inspired. Looking forward to taking some of her new recipes for a test run!

The Unlikely Pilgrimage of Harold Fry by Rachel Joyce – I’m about half way through this novel and really enjoying it so far. Our main character Harold is recently retired and living in a small English village with his wife Maureen who decided she didn’t really like Harold about 20 years ago. One day, Harold receives a letter from an old friend and soon finds himself on a journey across England…on foot. This a really sweet and enjoyable story so far. I’m looking forward to finding out what happens to this ol’ chap.

This Is Me Letting You Go by Heidi Priede – I think this one is going to be an ultimate heartstring puller. A collection of essays surrounding the topic of letting go and moving on from the ones we love. An area I could certainly use some tips!

What’s books are on your bedside table ATM? Let me know in the comments below!

Until next time…That’s what she said.

  1. I’ve declared this the year I get my finances in order and to keep on track, all my book selections are about that. I’m going to grab the one you’re reading. I’m reading “you’re broke because you want to be.”


  2. Have you read The Life Changing Magic of Tidying Up by Konmari? I read that first before Barefoot and went on a psycho purge and it made me think about the things I buy. Then I read The Barefoot Investor and it was a lot easier to implement and consider what I wanted to use my splurge account for. I’ve been following Barefoot for a good 8 months and love it – simple to implement and it’s a set and forget kinda thing. Also the peace of mind knowing how I should handle the future because no one our age knows what the bloody hell is going on!
