Summer reads


into the magic shop book


As a candle maker my passion and purpose is to create products to help you relax and unwind.  
One of the ways I love to relax is to read and if you follow me on social media you'll know that this year I vowed to ramp up my reading and as a result have become a bit of a bookworm and am now on my 11th book of the year so flying past my goal of a book every month. 
I usually go for fiction, reading at the end of the day to unwind and generally fall asleep too. I swear I sleep so much better after I read. 
My favourite authors are Elizabeth Day and Colleen Hoover but my latest book gripped me unexpectedly!
My husband is a non-fiction reader and was gifted a book a while ago from one of his old managers. While we were on holiday he flew through it and raved about how good it was and he had me hooked! As soon as he finished I picked it up and devoured in just a couple of days. 
'Into the Magic Shop' is an inspiring read written by Neurosurgeon Jim Doty and how after meeting Ruth the mother of a magic shop owner he was introduced to an amazing and powerful world exploring the links between our brain and our hearts. 
This book has become one of my all time favourites, it will stay with me forever and I am now recommending to everyone including my teenage children. 
I would love to hear about any life changing books you have read.
