First, let me apologize for how late this May content club blog is. I’ve been dealing with some heavier strategic things in the business through scaling and I haven’t had the energy to sit down and write lately.
I did, however, have the chance to sit down and read – and you can tell that I had a heavy month in May because of how much ‘fun’ reading I did. May 2019 was filled with fictional stories and I LOVED using them to escape my heavy days.
I hear a lot of people say “I don’t read fiction” like they’re bragging about it, but you’ll never hear me say that. This is because fiction helps me get creative… and I learn at least a few new vocabulary words each book, so it is just as ‘valuable’ to me as non-fiction content.
Ok, because this is my blog and therefore I can make my own rules, I’m going to give it to you short and sweet this time.
Books – (FYI – I use Amazon Affiliate links)
- This book starts getting good about 45% of the way in. Stick with it – the middle and ending are suuuuuper fun.
- This book reminds me that I’m not as alone as I think I am, though I did identify with the main character a bit more than I want to. (Any other single ladies feel me on this?!)
- This book made me realize that I missed a serious amount of knowledge in high school (thanks, Hortonville) – the basis of Greek Mythology. Realizing I didn’t know much about this topic sent me on a bit of a personal tailspin, and I realized how much I DON’T KNOW – about a lot of topics. Business, finance, religion, politics, psychology…. The list honestly goes on and on.
- My personal tailspin is not yet over and I’m now THROWING myself into learning and into books, which is probably why my brain hurts so much and why I’ve been having a heavy time.
- Great book, fun read. Caution – may make you want to learn absolutely everything about Greek Mythology. (Or I’m just a weirdo).
- A psychological thriller that you can still read before bed if you are single and live alone and get scared easily.
- An opinion article about why the government should break up Facebook… written by one of Facebook’s original Founders, Chris Hughes
- A super sweet article all about my business partner, Emily Klipp.
- An article from the Guardian about North Korea killing the people who didn’t successfully negotiate with Trump… reminding us that international affairs are still extremely delicate and that North Korea should be handled with care.
- An article about trade wars and how businesses could be impacted from Politico.
Ok, that’s it! We’re well into June as I publish this, so I’ve got most of my list started. If you want to read along with me, here are the books I’m reading in June. (Hopefully, I can get through all of these!!)
- Conscious Capitalism (Nonfiction)
- City of Girls (Fiction)
- The Guest Book (Fiction)
- Everything is F*cked (Nonfiction)
- Tales of the City (Fiction)
Ok for real – gotta get back to reading now. Bye!
