This month was intense. Looking back it seems like I spent most of my time sitting in the train from Vienna to Innsbruck and back and preparing everything for my move back to Innsbruck. Now after being back in Innsbruck, sitting in my new apartement, I am nothing but exhausted and tired. The last weeks were super stressful and not that much sleep. I am so happy this time is finally over and I am really looking forward to my trip to Turkey in a few days. But because of being completly stressed out, I could not find that much time to read, eventhough, one of my new year´s resolution is to read more. At least I managed to read a few books, so here we go:
Steppenwolf – Hermann Hesse
Harry Haller is a wild, quite strange man who is alienated from society. He suffers from dramatic mood swings and because of being drawn to creators like Mozart & Goethe he discoveres a higher truth and the possibilty of happiness.
‘A savage indictment of bourgeois society … the gripping and fascinating story of disease in a man’s soul.The New York Times
At first sight – Nicholas Sparks
As much as I love every book of Nicholas Sparks, this one is totally one of my favourites. It is the sequel of the book True Believer but you can read it also on its own without knowing anything about the first book. This story is about the love of a man and a woman while a mysterious message re-opens old wounds and changes their whole life upside down.
The poignant follow-up to True Believer, a young couple’s love faces the ultimate test in this number one New York Times bestseller.
Rich Dad, Poor Dad -Robert T. Kiyosaki
This book is life changing when it comes to exploding the myth that you need to earn a lot of money to become rich and why it is so important to know as much as possible about how money and our global economy work. In an easy understanding way Kiyosaki shares his secrets to a future financial success.
The book explodes the myth that you need to earn a high income to be rich and explains the difference between working for money and having your money work for you.
I am so sorry that there aren´t more books to share but hopefully, I can manage to read more in February (it is definitely on my list!). Maybe some of you have some reading inspirations for me – feel free to share them in the comments!
