#FridayReads – Girl, Wash Your Face by Rachel Hollis

I’m going to say the thing you’re not supposed to say – I didn’t want to read a self-help book. And guess what? I didn’t! This is a self-CARE book and that is 100% different. At 220 pages, it was a pretty quick but I kept stopping to underline great stuff like: …and there I…

#FridayReads – What to do when it’s your turn? – Seth Godin

You know how you finish a book and think, “I want to read that again!” Well….that’s exactly how I felt when I finished the last page of Seth Godin’s book, “What To Do When It’s Your Turn“. It was a 158-non-stop-page-turner kind of book! The Opportunity That’s what the entire book is built on –…

#FridayReads – Make Trouble by John Waters

So I’m not gonna lie…I picked up this book because it was pink and black…my favorite colors together on the planet. Say it…I’m shallow. (I already know…) I told you in previous #FridayReads posts I have really been into commencement speeches lately and this 70-page book is a revisit of John Waters’ address to the…

#FridayReads – Congratulations, By The Way by George Saunders

I’ve been into reading college commencement speeches and when I saw George Saunders address given to a recent graduating class at Syracuse University, I knew it was a must-read….

#FridayReads – This Is Water by David Foster Wallace

I’ve been going through some things in my personal life that are really hard. Like anyone, I have good days and bad days. This week, I had a really good day. My mentor, Robert Brumby, had mailed a package to me and when I opened it, this 137-page book fell out. Now, it’s a small…

#FridayReads – Year of Yes by Shonda Rhimes

It’s been a while, my friends. I have read books but failed to share book reviews, but this one….this one was too good to not share with all of you. I got to the end of the book and thought, “I’m jonesing for some more Shonda!” Yes, it was THAT good! What else you got? …

#FridayReads – What Now by Ann Patchett

I love little books. I’m definitely one who will skip over War and Peace and look for the smaller writings found in the nooks and crannies on a library shelf. Such is the case with What Now? by Ann Patchett. I’ve never heard of Ann Patchett. If I had, I would tell you her writing…
