Book Club April Edition
Three books to read in quarantine
Good Vibes Good Life, Vex King (£6.19, Amazon)
A modern must-have guide to self-love, introspection and manifestation, this book is exactly what you need during forced self-reflection. Written by Vex King, the book is broken down into easy-to-read chapters covering everything from positive lifestyle changes to manifesting your goals. If you think this book sounds a little ‘out there’ for you, fear not! The best thing about this book is that it’s the right balance of realism and spiritualism accompanied by examples of Vex’s own experiences on his way to success.
Despite only being 270 pages, there’s still so much to unpack.
(Fun fact: Vex King is married to influencer and Youtuber Kaushal Beauty and judging by their online success – his tips are clearly working!)
The Alchemist, Paulo Coelho (£6.93, Amazon)
My favourite book of all time, the Alchemist is the perfect short read to solve your quarantine blues. Selling more than 2 million copies worldwide, The Alchemist is a relatable tale of finding your purpose, as it follows the journey of Santiago as he travls the world to find it. After searching for the answer, the young man realises he has everything he needs to be successful.
(Fun fact: Paulo Coelho’s book The Alchemist, is the fifth most read book in the world selling over 100 million copies)
Yesterday’s Children, Jenny Cockell (£3.13, Ebay)
If you’re an adamant believer in past lives and reincarnation (or even if you aren’t), Yesterday’s Children, tells the story of Jenny as she’s plagued with memories of her past life family. After tracking them down, the book shows us how she juggled her old family with her new one. If you’re looking to ‘broaden your horizon’s’ in quarantine, this one could be for you.
(Fun fact: If you like this read, the book was later adapted into the 2000 movie, Yesterday’s Children starring Jane Seymour.)
