February Stack- Books I'm Reading This Month
No matter if it's a short weekend trip or something longer my boyfriend and I always bring at least 2 books with us *just in case.* The reality is that we always end up buying more books on the trip. Lately I've been making a more conscious attempt at incorporating reading the books I already have into my daily life.
I read blogs and articles all day but I think it's important to keep longer form items in your rotation. That being said, I wanted to share a few books I'm working through this month. Hopefully, they'll inspire you to check them out and keep me accountable to finish them by March.
A Beautiful Work In Progress by Mirna Valerio
I can't quite remember where I first learned about Mirna but her story is really interesting. While I never plan on running any ultra-marathons I've thought about picking up running before. So I was really interested in learning about a plus size athlete who overcomes physical and emotional obstacles in a traditionally more thin, white space.
I can't wait to post an update when I'm finished and for a preview you can check out Mirna on a Wild Ideas Worth Living podcast episode here.
The ladies over at A Beautiful Mess highly recommended this book by Shawn Askinosie so I decided to pick it up. I love business books but can't always make it through some of them. Askinoisie chocolate is also based in my state of Missouri which added a little extra interest. This book is a little more spiritual than something I would normally pick up but sometimes it's good to get a different perspective on things.
Feminist Fight Club: An Office Survival Manual for a Sexist Workplace by Jessica Bennett
I first heard about this book on an episode of Girl Boss Radio here. I should clarify that I wasn't seeking this book out for any issues at my own workplace. I have heard countless stories from friends about issues they've encountered and have issues at previous jobs myself. Flipping through the book looks dynamic with a lot of visuals, excited to dive in!
Have you read any these? Let me know, I would love to hear what you think!
