Embracing the Sunshine: Yellow Books and More I Love

I love the color yellow! It brightens spaces everywhere, warms us from inside out, makes everything cheerful (for me at least!), and reminds me of all the favorite yellow things I love. I also love the other fiery colors, like red and orange but yellow is at the very top of my fav colors list, and I recall almost blinding my DH when I paired a bright yellow top with a flowy full length yellow skirt long ago…:-)

Anyways, today (on my birthday!), I am focusing on books with yellow colors. They do tend to call our attention to them with their brightness and then when you pick them up and realize you will enjoy what is within, well, then they become part of your favorite books list as well.

Yellow Books I Love

The Ones I Own (Physical Books, I Mean)

I have so many more books with yellow on the cover but I picked the top ten among them here. Or rather, the first ten that caught my eye 🙂

Other Books With Yellow Covers I Loved

Yellow-Covered Non-Fiction Books I Need to Read

  • Better Small Talk. While I do find it easy to strike up conversations with anyone, even strangers, I also know I can improve my small talk (and big talk) skills a lot. So this book is on my TBR now
  • Breath: The New Science of a Lost Art. I started reading this book earlier this year, and somehow stopped in between all those zillions of breaths from then to now…
  • The Courage to be Happy. My friends will say I am optimistic and always looking at the positive side of things. But I still believe I can work on these strengths some more, hence this book.
  • The Design of Everyday Things. Love the concept of this book and know I will learn a lot I can apply to the everyday parts of life.
  • Hooked. Habits, habits, habits..
  • The Mental Toughness Handbook.
  • The Miracle Morning. I used to be a morning person and loved it. Over the years, life and family habits changed me. But now, as I turn another year older, I want to adopt the ‘wiser’ aspect of turning older and work on achieving the miracle morning for myself. Hope reading this gets me there sooner than later.
  • The Power of Discipline. I need some in my life…
  • The Power of Habit. Charles Duhligg is a super-writer. I think I read part of this a while ago but now I need to re-read this as well as Supercommunicators.
  • Rewire. I definitely have a few bad habits I need to break!

This goes towards Top Ten Tuesday

Other Favorite Things in this Sunshine-y Color

So much to love that is yellow! Like mangoes and bananas (among my favorite fruits), sunflowers and marigolds and yellow roses, bees and smileys, lemon bars and sunshine, Tweety and Spongebob, and many many more!

a rose from my backyard.. one of my favorites (well, of course!)
