The $100 Startup: Reinvent the Way You Make a Living, Do What You Love, and Create a New Future by Chris Guillebeau: After listening to it I am still not sure how to go about starting my own business. But at least I have some ideas and I know that you can do something without a lot of capital. This is really the best thing to take away from this book. Start what you love with little to no investment except your time and effort.
Daisy Jones & The Six by Taylor Jenkins Reid: Best book I’ve read in a long time. I loved the way it was written, like an interview and not like a story. Loved how each character was distinct in its voice. How important the women were for this story. How they are the story and how much more petty men can be when given a chance. It kept me up for one night and then I had finished it. Wow!
Love and Ruin by Paula McLain: This is already the third book I have read from Paula McLain after ‘The Paris Wife’ and ‘Circling the Sun’. I’ve loved them all, really enjoy the way she is combining historical figures with fiction and gives these women a platform on which to shine. Martha or Marty Gellhorn, the third wife of Hemingway, was do much more than his wife. A war correspondent until the beginning of her 80s who gave people a voice. How fiercely independent she was to do what she believed in. Another great book.
Always Never Yours by Emily Wibberley and Austin Siegemund-Broka: Always the bridesmaid, never the bride. This comes to mind when one reads ‘Always never yours’. But there is so much more to this book than meets the eye. It’s about growing up and doing what’s best for oneself and not what’s expected of one. I love how Megan navigates through her life, unapologetically and strong. She is a great role model.
