Time to review my February book picks! I LOVED these books so much that I was done with them by mid-month. If you are new, here’s the scoop on my reading challenge!

#Girlboss by Sophia Amaroso:
Summary from Amazon:
In the New York Times bestseller that the Washington Post called “Lean In for misfits,” Sophia Amoruso shares how she went from dumpster diving to founding one of the fastest-growing retailers in the world.
I really liked this book, it took me just a few days to read. She is blunt, honest and really gets to the point… which is totally my style. As a working woman and manager, I could relate to many of her stories and tips for getting ahead. I wish I would have read a book like this when I was in my early twenties, since at this point in my life and career… I already knew most of the things she talks about. My favorite line in the entire book was this gem:
“If I, and this book, have anything to prove, it’s that when you believe in yourself, other people will believe in you, too.”
I 100% believe that confidence is KEY in life. Confidence in yourself will help you land your dream job, dream man… dream anything, really. If you think you can do it, others will think so, too. I have been trying to share this simple fact with friends for years, but I was never able to convey it as perfectly as that one sentence. Love it. Read this book people.
Eleanor & Park by Rainbow Rowell:
Summary from Amazon:
Set over the course of one school year in 1986, this is the story of two
star-crossed misfits-smart enough to know that first love almost never
lasts, but brave and desperate enough to try. When Eleanor meets Park,
you’ll remember your own first love-and just how hard it pulled you
This book started off a little shaky for me, since it began with a lot of cursing. For some reason it just annoyed me. But once the relationship between Eleanor and Park began, it got good. Really good. I found myself smiling many times during the story, since the author does such an awesome job explaining the emotion and excitement the characters feel as they are falling for each other. A lot of people say they didn’t like the ending, but I thought it was perfect for the story. I really enjoyed this one! I will definitely be adding more Rainbow Rowell books to my reading wish list.
Tomorrow I will post my March books picks! (I can only hope I love them as much as I loved these two!) You can check out my Janauary book review if you would like… and be sure to friend me on GoodReads. Have you read any good books lately? I would love for you to tell me in the comments section since I need lots of book recommendations!
