WOW. WITH "DEAR IJEAWELE, A FEMINIST MANIFESTO IN FIFTEEN SUGGESTIONS' CHIMAMANDA NGOZI ADICHIE SIMPLY HAS ME ONCE AGAIN. I CAN'T IMAGINE A BETTER GIFT FOR MOMS OF GIRLS OR MOMS-TO-BE. I DIDN'T EVEN KNOW WHAT EXACTLY IT WAS ABOUT, I JUST PICKED IT UP BECAUSE SHE'S MY FAVORITE AUTHOR. THEN I FOUND OUT SHE WROTE THIS FOR A FRIEND WHO WAS ABOUT TO GIVE BIRTH TO A BABY GIRL AND ASKED FOR FEMINIST ADVICE ON IT. AND HER INTELLIGENCE, HER WIT AND HER WAY JUST KEEP ON FASCINATING ME. SO MUCH TO LEARN FOR US IN THIS BOOK WHICH IS JUST A ONE HOUR READ BUT FILLED WITH SO MANY AMAZING THOUGHTS. -J

I DON'T THINK I EVER FELT MORE INSPIRED AND UNDERSTOOD AFTER READING LEAN IN BY THE WONDERFUL SHERYL SANDBERG. WHY? BECAUSE SHE IS SPEAKING FROM HER OWN EXPERIENCES TELLING EXAMPLES AND STORIES. I FELT LIKE, SHE GOT ME –ESPECIALLY IN WORK RELATED ISSUES AND QUESTIONS. IT'S A GOOD AND EASY READ. DON'T EXPECT IT TO BE HEAVY AND BORING. I REALLY LOVE THIS ONE. -T

I JUST STARTED READING 'YOU ARE A BADASS' BECAUSE I'VE LITERALLY SEEN SO MANY PEOPLE RECOMMENDING IT. AND YES, AS FAR AS I CAN TELL NOW, IT'S NOT ONLY GONNA GET YOU OUTTA THAT STUPID COMFORT ZONE, IT'S ALSO SERIOUSLY FUN TO READ. - J

THIS BOOK IS AMAZING. I TRULY ADORE THIS ONE AND WILL READ IT OVER AND OVER. THE AUTHORS PHIL STUTZ AND BARRY MICHELS ARE HOLLYWOOD'S MOST ACCLAIMED PSYCHOTHERAPISTS. THEIR BOOK THE TOOLS GIVE YOU A SET OF FIVE LIFE-CHANGING DYNAMIC AND EFFECTIVE PSYCHOLOGICAL TECHNIQUES YOU CAN USE ANYTIME OR ANYWHERE. -T

I LOVE BOOKS LIKE 'HEART TALK - POETIC WISDOM FOR A BETTER LIFE' BY CLEO WADE. YOU CAN OPEN IT UP ON ANY PAGE AND YOU WILL FIND WORDS AND POEMS TO INSPIRE YOU EVERY SINGLE DAY. I READ OUT OF IT ALMOST EVERY DAY AND I JUST FIND IT SO IMPRESSIVE HOW SHE FINDS THE DIRECT WAY TO MY SOUL AND HEART WITH HER WORDS. - J

I JUST STARTED READING THIS AND I HIGHLY RECOMMEND IT. MENSTRUAL ACTIVIST JENNIFER WEISS-WOLF'S BOOK PERIODS GONE PUBLIC EXPLORES MENSTRUAL EQUITY AND STIGMA, THE TAMPON TAX AND WOMEN'S RIGHTS AND HEALTH POLICY IN A POWERFUL AND COOL WAY. -T

I LOVED THIS READ! "LITTLE BLACK BOOK" HAS SO MANY GOOD TIPS FOR GIRLS WHO ARE SERIOUS ABOUT THEIR CAREERS - LET IT BE SPEAKING IN PUBLIC OR THE ART OF NETWORKING, OTEGHA UWAGBA GOT YOU COVERED. - J

THIS BOOK IS AN EASY AND FUN READ OF KATHERINE POWER AND HILLARY KERR – THE CREATORS OF WHOWHATWEAR.COM AND THE CEOS OF THE CLIQUE MEDIA GROUP - THE COMPANY BEHIND WHOWHATWEAR.COM,BYRDIE.COM AND MYDOMAINE.COM. I LOVE ALL OF THOSE WEBSITES SO I COMPLETELY TRUST THESE LADIES WHEN THEY GIVE CAREER ADVICE. THE CAREER CODE EXPLORES TOPICS LIKE HOW TO IDENTIFY THE PERFECT JOB FOR YOU, HOW TO BECOME A BETTER BOSS, WHAT TO WEAR (AND NOT TO WEAR) TO GET PROMOTED, SIMPLE TRICKS FOR REACHING ANY GOALS AND SO MUCH MORE!-T

A CLASSIC AND ONE OF THE BEST BOOKS I'VE READ IN MY LIFE. 'THE FOURT AGREEMENTS' IS GONNA HELP YOU SO SO MUCH IF YOU ACTUALLY LIVE AFTER THEM - IT'S SERIOUSLY GOING TO CHANGE YOUR LIFE FOR THE BETTER IN SO MANY ASPECTS - IT DEFINITELY CHANGED MINE. - J

A FASCINATING ONE BY ANOTHER AUTHOR POWER-DUO: KATTY KAY AND CLAIRE SHIPMAN DEDICATE THEIR ÜBER-INTERESTING BOOK THE CONFIDENCE CODE TO THE HUNT FOR THE CONFIDENCE GENE. WHAT I LOVE ABOUT THIS BOOK IS THAT IT'S NOT ANOTHER ONE SAYING, OH JUST KEEP THINKING POSITIVE THOUGHTS AND YOU WILL BE MORE CONFIDENT, BUT THEY EXPLORE THE FRONTIERS OF NEUROSCIENCE, INTERVIEW AMAZING WOMEN ALONG THE WAY, SHOWING THAT CONFIDENCE IS A KEY FACTOR TO OUR SUCCESS AND HOW WE CAN GET THERE. SPOILER: WITH LESS PEOPLE PLEASING AND PERFECTIONISM, RISK TAKING & MORE. -T
