OMG, I'm turning into an adult. Recommend me books to help me blossom?
I'm not looking for a treatise or a philosophical work aimed at academics.
I'm not looking for Sheryl Sandberg aka how to climb the capitalism ladder.
I'm also not looking for Deepak Chopra or Oprah.
I'm not looking for Caitlin Moran or Tina Fey aka haha feminism for white chicks
But a bit of each of those things would be nice.
Lately I've loved reading Hemingway: The Sun Also Rises and Zadie Smith: White Teeth. It doesn't have to be a novel, in fact I'm open to any genre really. The theme I'm looking to explore is self-actualization, if that's a thing. I want to explore creative and spiritual blossoming. I've read the Artist's Way and that was right up my alley. A book that has the words "The Self" in it would probably be perfect.
