There was a time in my life (maybe during High School?) that I loved reading. I would lose myself in books and read them in a couple of days. But, then came college, then came the masters and then came work and I sort of drifted away from books! Last week I was away on a road trip with my family (you can see my instagram shots, here!) and I watched a lot of youtubers, especially Estee Lalonde, and I got that feeling of wanting to read.
I have to read a couple of books for work (part of my development plan), so it’s a good thing that I got this feeling haha. When I was in high school I read a lot of love stories but now it’s different… I want to read informational, inspiring books; so I did some research on some #girlpower books and these are the ones I found!
- How to win friends and influence people – This one I’m going to read for work; it’s part of my development plan and actually I think it’s a book everyone in business should read. It talks about the way you have to treat people around you, how to lead, how to listen and how all these tactics and improvements in your interpersonal skills will lead you to success.
- Lean In – Written by Sheryl Sandberg, Facebook COO, she talks about women and ambition. Although women in the workplace have gone a long way, we are still not equally there. This book talks about Sheryl’s experiences in big organizations so I guess it would be really inspirational for all of us women in business!
- #GIRLBOSS by Sophia Amoruso is said to be the millennial version of Lean In so it’s a must on my list! I want to read both versions to see if there’s any difference. Just fyi, Sophia Amoruso is a high school drop out and she’s the founder and ceo of the amazing online site NastyGal!
- Not That Kind of Girl by Lena Dunham – This one is a bit different for me because I think it has some humor in it and I have a weird sense of humor (somehow I don’t find a lot of things funny haha) but it touches the point of a woman that wants it all, and it sounds like me so I will read it! A little description of the book,” But I am a girl with a keen interest in having it all, and what follows are hopeful dispatches from the frontlines of that struggle.”
I will read all of these books and will do a recap of them, to tell you how it went, if it was easy to read or helpful :).
If there are any great books out there that you find inspirational or just simply amazing, please let me know on the comments below! Don’t forget to follow me on instagram, facebook and snapchat where we can talk and be friends 🙂
