Being a full-time student and a full-time blogger didn’t allow me enough time to read anything else except textbooks. This season I decided to use the extra time I have to check out some good reads for women. In other words, to read something not for studying but for entertainment purposes only. And I found some very exciting options!
The majority of the books that I mention in this list are not serious at all. Rather, these are easy reads for women that I hope on enjoying while on the beach somewhere in the Hamptons.
But before we begin, I wanted to emphasize that we are specifically talking about feel good reads for women. If you are looking for the list of beauty and fashion books, an additional post is coming soon!
The Circle by Dave Eggers
I remember downloading a sample of this book a long time ago and being fascinated with it. I never had a chance to read the full book.
Now, when there is a movie based on the novel, I promised myself to finish the book before I can watch the movie. That way, I can compare my impression of the characters to these created by the film director.
Body Love by Kelly LeVeque
I first heard about Kelly’s eating strategy at the Skinny Confidential Podcast. She seems very knowledgeable about nutrition and specifically about the vegan lifestyle.
I just started listening to the audio version of this book and I have to say that some of the advice that she gives is pretty good.
For instance, Kelly insists that eating fruits separately from protein and fat actually makes you hungry — which is an observation that already helped me.
The Assistants by Camille Perri
The description of this book sent some major Devil Wears Prada vibes to me so I decided that it would be a perfect easy read.
The book is about an assistant working for a media company so I was thinking I might learn a thing or two while reading this novel.
I also appreciate the fact that the book is written from a perspective of a modern-day Millennial which is something I could totally relate to.
How to Be a Bawse: A Guide to Conquering Life by Lilly Singh
I’m fascinated with everything Lilly does on her YouTube channel. Her content is so unique and entertaining.
I’m dying to learn all the secrets to her success and any advice she could give to building the SuperWoman media empire and inspiring women to be better versions of themselves.
You May Also Like by Tom Vanderbilt
In this book, Vanderbilt explains the psychological and cultural phenomena of the “age of easy choice.” The book concentrates on things people like and hate, and why they feel that way.
In the era of social media where ideas and things are being validated by the amount of “likes” things receive, this book would be a useful read to better understand social media.
