Lucy: Mindset - Dr Carol S. Dweck
“Every time I read Mindset I learn something new about myself, my ability and what I am capable of. My ‘loved’ copy at home has been filled with notes, highlighted quotes and post-it tabs of insights that always inspires a positive mindset. The underlying message that a growth mindset can create a resilience and drive that becomes the foundation of accomplishing greatness in every area of your life”.
Lucy: The Boy, The Mole, The Fox and The Horse - Charlie Mackesy
“This book is for people of all ages, whether your a child or an adult, life messages of empathy and self-care are captured in a few words and illustrations. A story about friendship sharing thought-provoking words of strength in the present moment ultimately to find the light on the other side”.
Olivia: Open - Andre Agassi
“I read Open a couple of years back, and it remains top of my mind when I want to recommend a book to a friend! This autobiography recounts - often in surprisingly microscopic detail - Andre Agassi’s tennis journey. The avid tennis-fan in me is what attracted me to pick up this book, but I found myself engrossed in a story and incredibly personal tale that was about so much more than just tennis.”
Alija: A Thousand Splendid Suns - Khaled Hosseini
"I couldn't put this book down. I was completely swept up in this beautiful yet emotional tale from beginning to end. It tells the story of will power and the resilience of women in Afganistan under Taliban rule and highlights that with friendship, family and love you can overcome the hardest obstacles. I finished this book with a new appreciation for the little things in life and immense gratitude for living in a war-free country."
Sandra: Eleanor Oliphant Is Completely Fine - Gail Honeyman
“This is a book I really loved. Eleanor is an absolutely delightful, quirky, flawed human… I was so sad when the book finished and I had to say goodbye to her!”
