I wanted to share my favorite books that have had all of my attention for the past month. I’ve challenged myself to read one book a week, which has really helped me focus a lot more, use my time wisely, and stop scrolling on social media.
Good “Self Help Books” help to ground me and change my perspective, I’m intrigued by how successful people view life and what helped them on their journey and shaped them to become the person they are now.
AMAZING! I’ve always been a big fan of Steve Harvey, “Jump” is so personable and Steve gives details on the trials and tribulations he faces as he was chasing his dreams. So authentic, the dialect was true to Steve Harvey. He even talks about the 2015 Miss Universe situation, so transparent about it all and I respect him even more after reading Jump!
- Capture Your Style by Aimee Song Every style blogger should read this book. I would never use my phone for my photos and thought I had to have a professional photographer for every single thing. This book definitely changed my perspective and how I view the blogging, it helped me refocus and shift my perspective.
- This Will Be My Undoing: Living at the Intersection of Black, Female, and Feminist in (White) America by Morgan. Jerkins Every millennial should read this book. Morgan was nothing less than straightforward and honest about all of her experiences as a black female. Someone at busboys and poets (my favorite restaurant) recommended this book and it was so hard for me to put it down. Morgan painted the childhood of most black girls, I think most will be able to relate to this gem.
I’ll be sharing my monthly books with you, I promise to keep it real and always be honest I won’t have you out here wasting your time or money!
