The Book Nook

Hi there, welcome to my little reading corner where I talk about the books I like and think you might like too. I don’t know about you, but I love making myself a cup of tea and finding a quiet spot to enter the world contained within a book.

I have very eclectic tastes personally, but one area I have always loved is self-help and I am going to share the non-fiction and fictional books that I think may help you in some way.

I hope you enjoy your reading and why not let me know how you got on with them on my Facebook Page?

Using the powerful method of storytelling, Brené… Continue Reading Rising Strong

The Black Flamingo

The Black Flamingo by Dean Atta is perhaps not a book that you would necessarily put in the self-development section of the bookshop, but I feel that this unique story would be very healing to someone who is currently exploring their identity or has been on a journey to find themselves in the past. What… Continue Reading The Black Flamingo
