Top 12 Inspirational Books to read for 2017

March 30, 2017 24 Comments

I know it’s already a whole quarter into 2017. As tomorrow will be wrapping up the last day of the first quarter of 2017, how are you going with tracking the process of your new year’s resolution? I have a little confession to make: Although I started 2017 high and ambitious, I haven’t been able to tick off many items from my resolution list yet, given that I’ve been mostly occupied with work everyday.


One of the top items I’ve had on my 2017’s new year’s resolution list was to read at least one book per month. Regretfully, I have only managed to finish so far. The ONE Thing by Gary Keller and Jay Papasan. With a full-time job, a blog to manage and setting up a start-up company with another Co-founder, TIME seems like a very luxury item to me. I’m glad that I finished ‘The One Thing’ at the beginning of the year, and I could actually apply many of the prioritisation skills and tricks onto my daily life in order to help me to keep my head above the water and it also taught me how to achieve the most with the minimal amount of time.


I must confess that I’m not much of a novel/fictional reader. Within the limited amount of time I have to spare every day, I would like to read something that is educational and inspirational. Below is the list of inspirational books that I have put down on my 2017’s to-read list that I would like to share with you.  What’s on your To-Read list for this year?

    Just like you I made a resolution to read more this year, but have also been engaged in so many things that have taken all my time so I haven’t had the chance to go in depth on books at all. However out of all the things you listed I think a must read for me would be “The Subtle Art of Not Giving a F*ck” as I need more of that in my life, haha.
    Thanks for the tips!

    Im constantly looking for new but odd books to read. I recently picked pup Assholes a Theory at the airport when I flew to New York. Definitely recommend it if you’re into those kind of books. I really want to pick up the happiness equation that you suggested!

    Love this list you’ve included! I was just saying to my husband how incredibly insane it is that we are through a quarter of the year! It sounds like you have very full days and I can relate! I used to really enjoy reading and used to love a good fiction book on a rainy weekend! Ah…such a distant memory! I’m right with you in just finishing up one book so far this year and it’s a similar book to these. It’s Visual Intelligence. I’m so busy all the time that I zone and it’s really a great read on paying more attention to detail! Great post babe!

    Gosh I really need to start reading. My boyfriend loaned me a book,and I still have to read it. It is so horrible. I love books that are inspirational. All these look wonderful. Books like this are usually so inspirational, and I need to get inspired by what other people write.

    I haven’t been on top of my NY’s resolutions either and so far all I’ve been reading is this book called ‘What on earth are you here for?”. Maybe I’ll add some of these to my list!

    I have to say that I am definitely more of a novel reader myself but you have convinced me to explore these titles. I’m actually going to try The One Thing and You are a Badass. I think I need both of them ! Thank you so much!

    I am also more of a fictional novelist. Stephen King and Mary Higgins Clark are my absolute faves! You can say I’m a bit over-obsessed with horror and suspense novels, books that keep me on my toes. I need to get more into educational books too. My fiancé reads them all the time!
