15 Books for the New Year

It’s currently raining today in NYC. It’s been raining all through the night and hasn’t stopped yet. Since it’s the Friday after Christmas, and the Friday before New Years… the city is in a weird stand-still. People are in vacation mode, with not much work going on – unless you work at restaurant or a clothing shop. The rain today makes everything a little bit more dreary. I decided I’m going to spend some time today reading my current book PRINCIPLES by Ray Dalio. From when I read the first page, I knew it was going to be a book I’d enjoy. Plus, there has been so many good things said about this book.

It’s no surprise I love reading books. I recently did a MAJOR haul on Amazon of lots of books and thought I’d share them with you all. See all the previous book reviews/recommendations I posted HERE and the most recent one HERE. If you’re looking for some inspiration for new books in the new year, take a look at the list below.
