Recently I’ve been wanting to read more and more non-fiction books because I think they can make me consider things in a different way than fiction does. Of course, a novel can entertain you, make you think about situations or make you relate to it in a particular way, and I do love the genre. But I think reading more non-fiction can also make me understand something differently, more directly, or on the contrary, depending on the book, make me see things from someone else’s perspective, like their journey or story.
To name a few non-fiction books I read, there was Mindy Kaling’s Is Everyone Hanging Out Without Me (and other concerns), which was the first autobiography I read, #Girlboss (which was all about being responsible for the success of a business), and Blog, Inc. which you can expect a review of very soon.
But let’s concentrate on my to-read list for today.
Yes Please, by Amy Poehler
I discovered Amy a few years ago on Parks and Recreation and she’s just incredible. I picked up her book last month and can’t wait to read it.
It’s All Good, by Gwyneth Paltrow
I picked up this one randomly last week as I was killing some time at the mall. I’d already looked this one up on Amazon but the fact that I found it in French made me go for it as it’s always easier I think when the products you need are adapted to what can be found in your own country.
Eat Pretty: Nutrition for Beauty, Inside and Out, by Jolene Hart
Another book about nutrition but unlike Gwyneth’s book that’s got a million recipes, this one’s more about understanding what you eat.
It’s Not How Good You Are, It’s How Good You Want To Be, by Paul Arden
I spotted this one at the Urban Outfitters corner the other day and I said to myself “next time I’m around, I’m getting this” as I already had spent too much. It’s a quick read I’m very curious about.
Lean In for Graduates, by Sheryl Sandberg
To make it short, this book is about leaning in as a woman into our society and it is supposed to be very empowering. This promises to be really interesting.
