19 Books to Inspire You to Follow Your Dreams, Be Yourself, and Get Sh*t Done in the New Year | North to South

The start of a new year is the perfect time to get inspired. It gives us that fresh-start feeling we need to regroup and refocus on what’s important. Exploring a new place through travel is an exciting way to do that, but getting lost in a good book can be equally beneficial.

I’ve put a lot of thought into my goals for this year, and my 2019 reading list reflects my main goal of getting focused and staying true to me. Travel, organization, entrepreneurship, creativity, and embracing individuality are some key themes on my reading list this year.

If you, too, are aiming to follow your dreams, get sh*t done and stay true to yourself this year, perhaps there’s something here that will inspire you. Now, who’s ready to start reading? I know I am!
