What I Read: August 2017

And just like that, unofficial summer is over. *cries* Here’s what I read in the month of August!

Shrill by Lindy West. This book wasn’t my favorite, and it wasn’t not my favorite. The piece I liked best was the absolute last one in the book that tells the amazing story of an online troll who saw the light. And by light I mean the fact that people on the internet are REAL PEOPLE.

When Breath Becomes Air by Paul Kalanithi. I wanted this book to move me and inspire me but it didn’t do that. I found the best part of the whole book to be the epilogue his wife wrote after he passed away. Eek.

Thank You for Being Late by Thomas Friedman. A really fascinating look at how technology is shaping this world and the people in it. Technology may feel like it’s making life miserable, but it doesn’t have to.

Startup Your Life by Anna Akbari. This might be a good book for someone entering into their first quarter life crisis, who is new to self help books, but as a G.D. old timer much of this was repetitive for me. One thing I did like was her advice to treat your life like a science experiment of sorts to try new things and see what works best for you. Trial and error, y’all.

    I just re-read The Happiness Project by Gretchen Rubin. I’m currently reading The Royal We by Heather Cocks & Jessica Morgan. We just got back from our Honeymoon in London so The Royal We has been really fun to read!
