I hope you are all having a wonderful start to the new year! I’ve been looking forward to setting my Goodreads Reading Challenge goal for 2022. I first started using Goodreads back in July 2021 when I was getting back into reading. I set my goal and was able to surpass it. That inspired my goal for 2022. This year, I am looking forward to reaching my goal of reading 100 books.
As we start this new year, many of us are working on creating better habits. For me, I am focusing on and prioritizing personal growth and wellness. As you may know, I am a huge fan of self-help books and review them here often. If you are as well, I hope the books on my list will inspire you to pick up a copy, or browse the genre and find something that speaks to you. I’ve got a pile of books waiting already, but I’d like to share a few that I’m really excited to read. Here are 4 personal growth books to kick off 2022.
1) Don’t Be Trashy: A Practical Guide to Living with Less Waste and More Joy by Tara McKenna
