5 books I enjoyed reading this summer

I decided to take up the challenge of reading 1 book a week for 10 weeks. Some were good, some were bad, some I loved and the others, I stopped reading half way, because, life is too short to finish a book you don’t like (Don’t agree? Tell us why in the comments below!).

This was until I came across Lilly Singh’s “How to be a Bawse : A guide to conquering life”.

Bullet Journal for Productivity and Mindfulness

I started my bullet journal journey about two years ago, at a time in law school where I was overwhelmed with assignments, co- curriculars and managing my everyday activities. I had tried some standard journals before, and though they weren’t effective, I used to purchase one every year to keep up with my new year resolution of being more productive. While I was looking for journals on Amazon, I came across this book called “The Bullet Journal Method” by Ryder Carroll. Upon further research, I thought that a bullet journal might be a fun activity to start – and so I began my bullet journal journey.
