I don’t know about you, but for me when spring starts to emerge all I want to do is to refresh my bookshelves and look for something new and exciting. I feel like new books for the soul are the equivalent of the spring cleaning for the house. And with the new Carturesti opening in the central square, I thought there’s no better occasion to share my love for books than now. I hope this article will make you as excited to do some book shopping and to help you with that, I have a few amazing books that you can add on your list.
The newest library in the city centre is everything you expect from a library and more. Besides every genre you can think of, for every age and pocket, you’ll find here dozens of exciting teas and chocolates, stationery products and a perfectly Instagrammable place. So, if you want a cute picture you have to go and buy a book, haha!
This spring I feel the need for personal development books, and I am curious about focusing on different cultural practices to achieve this. Here are a few books that caught my attention regarding this topic:
At the same time, I also want to get lost in a novel. Since school, I always associated novels with a summer activity and reading a good novel would make me so excited about the hot season! Here are a few books from my list:
My Oxford Year by Julia Whelan (probably because I miss my uni days 😅)
Lost in the Spanish Quarter by Hedii Goodrich (I also miss Barcelona and our engagement vacation 💏)
The Clockmakers Daughter by Kate Morton (The action happens in London during summer which I also miss 🎡)
After half an hour of reading blurbs, I was indecisive: About Presence or Ikigai? So I thought it would be better to ask for your opinion in an Instagram poll. It turns out that Ikigai is exactly what I was looking for and, as soon as I started, I realised that I need to take notes. I want to make sure I remember all the good practices and laws of Ikigai, so I can test it on my skin. If you're like me and you find yourself feeling stressed or anxious without an apparent reason, you need to read this! I will surely review it!
