April Reads – Books I’ve been loving this month

I am Currently in Book worm heaven . It was my Birthday this week, and I got a couple books which I’m super  excited to read and I also have a couple scheduled for delivery on my Kindle in the  next week or so  , as they are released.  Plenty reading to keep me out of mischief ……….. . 

These are the books though I’ve been reading and loving  the past month. 

 She Means Business by Carrie Green.    I love Carrie. A fellow Brit and Girlboss.  Carrie set up FEA – The Female Entrepreneur Association    of which I am now a member.    This book honestly is  one of the best Girlboss books I have ever read.  Carrie  tells her story of how she started her own business whilst at Uni and from there was inspired to set up a  community for fellow Girlbosses to motivate, inspire and support one another on the Entrepreneurial journey.   She Means Business is  Carrie’s own story from barely being able to afford Christmas presents for her family but having faith in herself,that  it would all work out with plenty of  hard work, and sheer determination .  Carrie is so lovely and really down to earth , I found her story so inspiring .   The Female Enrepreneur Association is now global and brings women all over the world together to unite in  supporting and encouringing one another in running their own business’ .  For all my fellow Girlbosses who have yet to read this book – go check it out Now!. It is wrote in a  way that makes it so easy to  pick up and read , even in bite size chucks , so even once you have read it through, you can simply refer back quickly to chapters  you wish to return back to for reference. Get ready to super charge your small business after reading this!

 

A revisit to an old favourite – Take a look at me now by Miranda Dickinson.

A chick Lit book to curl up with when you just want a little escape . I’ve read this one a few times now .  You know I love Miranda’s books.   I read them over and over.  This one is the story of Nell who   is the kind of girl who plans her whole life out. However out of the blue she  gets made redundant and her on/off relationship is defiantly off ,  so she  throws caution to the wind and acts on a whim .   A brilliant read that backs up the theory that the Universe always has your back  and that sometimes  in life, everything has to be shaken upside down , for it  all to fall into place and lead you right to where you are meant to be.   Plus it always makes me want to jump on a plane to San Francisco!.

 

 

Always the Bridesmaid  for hire  by Jen Glantz.    I read an article on Jen in Cosmo and loved her story.  So when I saw her book , I downloaded it on my kindle to read.  I’ve only just started it, but already I’m laughing out loud , I’m  hooked.   A fellow Girlboss who having endured Cruella  De Ville like  bosses  and jobs that just did not excite her,   accidently stumbled upon  a fun, profitable career where she gets paid to drink champagne, eat cake and dance all night long at Weddings  and make friends along the way.  

 

The Things you can see only when you slow down – by  Haemin Sunim . I was in Edinburgh recently for the day and had a little wander into Waterstones. I spied this book and started reading it in the shop.   I ended up buying it or I would have been there all day!. Haemin Sunim is a Buddhist monk, who offers advice on slowing down in our frantically busy modern world, to experience the joy, calm and strength we can find if we just slow down.  

 

The Life Changing Magic Of Not Giving a F**k – by Sarah Knight .  I’ve been dying to read this one for ages! .  I have the Life Changing Magic of Tidying Up by Marie Kondo on my Kindle , which is for tidying up and decluttering your personal space.  The life changing magic of not giving a  f**k however   is based on tidying your mental clutter.  I had it on my wish list,  However I saw my friend Katy reading it when we went away a couple months ago, and she very kindly  loaned me it.  Again I’ve just started it  , defiantly hoping to learn some tips on not taking too much on at one time! , so guilty on doing that despite my best efforts not to.   I’ll report back when I’ve finished the book.  

Comment below with the books you guys have been reading . I love hearing from you and its a great way to discover new reads!.

  1. Love look at me now as it takes me back to when I was in San Francisco 😍 When I was reading it I literally felt I was actually there as Some of the places she mentions in the book I could relate to as had been and San Fran is one of my favourite places I have visited ❤️ Usually takes me ages to read a book as you well know Joanne 😂 but could not put this one down as could not wait to see where she was at next 👍
