“I’m currently reading Think Like A Monk by Jay Shetty and really enjoying it. I personally love motivational books so would definitely recommend it if you are the same. It’s been a great eye opener – especially this year,” she said.

“Atomic Habits by James Clear is great. It’s a very interesting read and I have found it beneficial when implementing changes and improvements in my life,” Niamh told us.
Lottie said, “I re-read one of my all time favourite books recently – The Assassination Of Marilyn Monroe by Donald Wolfe. It’s just completely fascinating and the perfect amount of glam meets politics. I also got a present of a book called Ride Of A Lifetime by the CEO of The Walt Disney Company, Robert Iger. It’s a wonderful read on leadership and imagination.”
“I’ve read the Harry Potter series multiple times. They’re the best books I’ve ever read and if you haven’t read them please do! I very recently read The Girl With The Dragon Tattoo trilogy and it can be a bit hard to get into but once you do it’s even harder to put down! Also, Into The Light by Aleatha Romig was a really interesting read,” Grainne said.
“I would say Mariah Carey’s autobiography, I haven’t actually started it…no judgement please, but I will be listening to the audiobook over lockdown, especially because Mariah reads it herself,” she laughed.
Amilia told us, “My favourite book right now is a baby book called When You Were Born by Irish Author, Benji Bennett. It was gifted to us by family friends when I was pregnant. We read it everyday, Reggie loves it and so do I. It’s absolutely beautiful.”
“American Dirt by Jeanine Cummins. It’s absolutely gripping and I couldn’t put it down. It really opened my eyes to the struggles of migrants and their journeys,” she said.
