For the self-help enthusiasts, we’d have to recommend, along with Booktok, The 5AM Club by Robin Sharma. As the name suggests, this book is all about maximising your morning routine to gain a better life by upping your productivity and getting the most out of your morning routine so that you can both activate and live your best, healthiest life with a calm serenity surrounding them. “Revolutionary” and “life-changing” are two popular words to describe this book and if self-help is your thing, it is a definite must-read!
For the lovers of thriller/suspense novels, If We Were Villains by M. L. Rio is a great choice if you have not already sunk your teeth into it. This captivating story about a man who spent the last 10 years in prison after he may or may not have murdered his best friend will leave you instantly hooked as you unravel the story before you. What is real and what is an act is a question you’ll be asking yourself and eagerly awaiting the answers as you make your way through this suspenseful title that’s had everyone sitting on the edge of their seat.
For the romantics at heart, Mr Wrong Number by Lynn Painter is an adult and contemporary romance novel with the addictive and swoon-worthy trope of enemies-to-lovers romance that will leave you feeling good and laughing out loud. The perfect read for those looking for a little romance in their lives and as one of the reviews said, “I dare you to not fall in love!”. A hard-to-put-down, spicy, funny, and of course swoon-worthy book, it’s a definite must-read for those that love romance novels.
