We know how to lose ourselves in a book. But sometimes, we find parts of ourselves in there too. The BNT Book Club is a destination to share a love of reading, our many things and how we can discover and express ourselves through books.
You probably know Jordy Lucas from her role starring as Summer Hoyland on Neighbours, but now Jordy is a mum of one, Creative Director of popular lifestyle hub She Does This and book lover. Jordy has a passion for sharing incredible stories and helping women to live their best lives, which is why we are so stoked she has shared her top book picks with us!
I Am … Grateful
Book: The Five People You Meet In Heaven by Mitch Albom
I am a firm believer that everything happens for a reason and find a lot of peace in this notion. The Five People You Meet In Heaven by Mitch Albom tells the story of Eddie who dies and experiences heaven as a place where life is explained to you through five people you met. These people could have been loved ones or even strangers, but they all changed your life in some way.
It’s a book about purpose and left me feeling grateful for life and love.
I Am … A Mother
Book: Ten Little Fingers and Ten Little Toes by Mem Fox
One of my greatest joys in life is reading to my daughter. Watching her learn, develop and grow through reading is just magical. Ten Little Fingers and Ten Little Toes by Mem Fox is one of our favourites to read before bed time. The illustrations are gorgeous and the messaging that we are all different yet all the same is beautiful and something I want to instil in my girl.
I Am … Imaginative
Book: The Hypnotists Love Story by Liane Moriarty
Liane Moriarty is a favourite author of mine, mainly for her ability to transport me into the world of her novels. The Hypnotists Love Story is a particular favourite. It’s a romantic tale that is funny, scary, complex all in one.
