Finally finished this collection! I should read more short stories because I really enjoyed these!
This book is so much fun! Just as good as the prequel, and I can‘t wait to read the sequel! ⭐️⭐️⭐️⭐️⭐️
A retelling of Jane Eyre that involves real ghosts, a bumbling Branwell Bronte, references to The Princess Bride, and a happy ending that doesn‘t involve a manipulative, abusive husband. I loved it so much and laughed out loud repeatedly. Cannot recommend enough, especially for Bronte fans.
I love this book. I love everything Forleo says, and I love how direct and no nonsense she is in the way she tells it.
I also love the journal prompts at the end of each chapter. This book is not designed to be read passively. You have to engage with the material in order to get the most out of it, and Forleo provides actionable steps you can use to do just that. ⭐️⭐️⭐️⭐️⭐️
Came across this one because it was promoted on my Overdrive. The concept intrigued me and it did not disappoint. I thoroughly enjoyed the characters and the plot, even when I could see what was coming. Highly recommend this one and can‘t wait to read more by Audrey Blake.
This book was so much fun! I‘m a sucker for historical fiction (especially Tudor England), and I love fantasy, so when you mix the two together with a bit of romance and a healthy helping of snark, you have a book that was designed to steal my heart ❤️
About as dry as you would expect a book about SEO to be, but very informative and I definitely learned a lot. If you‘re looking to up your link-building game, I highly recommend this one.
This book is deeply weird. In theory I think it‘s supposed to reveal the “true nature” of children, and I suppose by extension, all of humanity, but it gets so many things wrong. Proving old men know nothing about children. That said, the MC‘s surprising abilities, and the tendency of adults to underestimate her, I did find more interesting than the rest of the book.
Not sure I really want to be a full-time speaker, but as someone who does want to do some more professional speaking and training, I definitely got a lot out of this book. There‘s also a fair amount of information that can be applied to just about any entrepreneurial endeavor.
Just be aware that the book was published a decade ago, so a few things are out of date.
This book is so good and I learned so much. Everyone should read it!
I actually got this book from the library because I thought it was about SEO, and since I‘m trying to provide more SEO services this year, I thought it would be a good book for me to read.
Turns out it‘s not at all about SEO, but about how Google was founded and run as a company. Since the book is almost a decade old, I‘m not sure how much of it still applies, but I was surprised at how funny and engaging the writing was. I‘m so glad I read it!
Well, I certainly wasn‘t expecting a book written in the 1930s to talk about the “vibrational energy” of money, but since I‘ve been reading a lot about that lately, I was open to the concept. I don‘t agree with everything in this book, but I did get some good takeaways.
I always say I don‘t like poetry, but then when I read it I really enjoy it, so I should probably stop saying that. The poems in this collection are so good and so beautiful I was sad to have finished the book. I got a copy from the library, but I‘m seriously considering buying a copy for my own collection.
This book is definitely not for everyone, but I got a lot out of it. It definitely alerted me to some conflicting thoughts and feelings I have around money, and you‘d better believe I‘m going to use her exercises to overcome them all. 💰
I learned so much from this book and enjoyed listening to it so much! The narrator does a fantastic job, so I highly recommend the audiobook.
Not quite what I was expecting from this book, but I really enjoyed it. I was expecting more magic, but it took a while to get magical, and even when it got there, the focus was less on the magic and more on the dangers of defining yourself by your relationships. I can‘t argue with that message, especially when the writing is so good and so much fun!
I had so much fun reading this book. Issa Rae is so smart and funny, and I‘m sure I‘ll be using her ABG guides for dealing with difficult people in the future. I‘m not black, but I am an introvert and frequently awkward, so a lot of her rules still apply.
I caught one contradiction in this book, but for the most part, I agree with everything in it. Even professional marketers such as myself can use it to brush up on our knowledge every now and then.
As a lover of Regency-era romances, I‘m insulted that the author clearly thinks very little of my intelligence. It‘s not like she‘s writing any Pulitzer winners. Also, she misattributed a line to Macbeth that‘s actually from Hamlet.
But overall, I enjoyed this one. It‘s not like I come to these books for the mental stimulation.
Apparently my theme for this month is Criminal Women. Unintentional, but I‘m not complaining, especially when I get to learn about a whole gang of women who stole from English shops for almost a century.
