Welcome back to my blog post for the month. I know it’s a little delayed but here it is. This time around, I want to share with you two amazing books I read earlier this year. These books are phenomenal and completely unique within their specific fields of self-help. As you already know by now I genuinely enjoy reading and when I’ve read a great book, I just can’t help but share it. Here we go!
Book 1 –
Modern-day etiquette by Myka Meier – This is a book I didn’t know I needed and it has certainly broadened my interest in etiquette. Meier is a professionally trained etiquette coach, author, and founder of Beaumont Etiquette. Her book is filled with an abundance of sophisticated advice for ladies and gentlemen, personal stories, and of course etiquette coaching. Modern-day Etiquette is a book for ladies (and gentlemen) who want to thrive in a wide range of social settings. Through the use of acronyms and quirky quotes, Mieier remarkably breaks down the essentials of having great etiquette. There are so many awesome takeaways from this book, it’s one to hold on a revisit occasionally as the advice is invaluable. As a reader, we begin to understand that etiquette isn’t just about having great table manners, it’s your overall stance as a guest or host.
Book 2 –
Boundaries by Henry Cloud and John Townsend – From the very first moment I began reading this book, I didn’t want to stop. The book opens with a very relatable scenario that I can say I’ve found myself in more times than I’d like to admit. Authors Cloud and Townsend effectively demonstrate through the pages in this book using biblical scriptures from the bible the importance of boundaries at work and in our personal relationships. In addition, they explore the root cause of boundaries issues and how they can be conquered. This book is for people who want to make their boundaries clear to others with no foul play involved. It really does expose that those people in our life who don’t respect our boundaries really shouldn’t have a seat at our table. Although it is our duty first to set some boundaries.
What I loved most about both of these books is the authors’ way of communicating their stories. Both books have a strong and positive message that can be applied directly within all areas of our life. I really hope my mini-review has sparked an interest within you to pick up one if not both of these books.
Till next time,
