MY SUMMER READING LIST

Hi, Everyone! I thought I’d share my summer reading list with you all today. I've had a pretty fast paced summer and I haven't managed my time well enough to knock out all the books I'd like. Here’s a few things I’ve been reading and what’s on my list for the coming months. I would LOVE to hear what you all are reading too.

Steal Like An Artist, By Austin Kleon

A guide to creativity in the digital age, this book presents ten trans-formative principles to help readers discover their artistic side and build a more creative life. Offers advice and encouragement to help readers foster creativity and be artistically productive in a wide variety of endeavors.

Steal Like an Artist is a quick read with simple and sensible advice for creatives.

The Hacking of the American Mind, By Robert H. Lustig

Author of Fat Chance reveals the corporate scheme to sell pleasure, driving the international epidemic of addiction, depression, and chronic disease.

- I've just started reading this book and I am loving it. This book looks into the difference between desire vs happiness(dopamine vs serotonin) and how it can influence our behaviour.

Reality Is Not What It Seems By Carlo Rovelli

What are time and space made of? Where does matter come from? And what exactly is reality? Scientist Carlo Rovelli has spent his life exploring these questions and pushing the boundaries of what we know. Here he explains how our image of the world has changed throughout centuries. From Aristotle to Albert Einstein, Michael Faraday to the Higgs boson, he takes us on a wondrous journey to show us that beyond our ever-changing idea of reality is a whole new world that has yet to be discovered. - Publisher Summary

I'm excited to begin reading this book.

When Breath Becomes Air, By Paul Kalanithi

When Breath Becomes Air is by far one of my favorite books. It wasn't my first time reading this, but I felt that it was something I needed to re-read this summer. When Breath Becomes Air is a non-fiction autobiographical book written by Paul Kalanithi. A memoir about his life and illness, battling stage IV metastatic lung cancer.

Secret's of Six Figure Women, By Barbara Stanny

In Secrets of Six-Figure Women, Barbara Stanny, journalist, motivational speaker,and financial educator, identifies the seven key strategies of female highearners: A Profit Motive, Audacity, Resilience, Encouragement, Self-Awareness, Non-attachment, and Financial Know-How.

Secret's of Six Figure Women, was one of my first reads. At first I ended up just skimming through and reading a couple different chapters here and there. I've read a few similar books, so it was a bit too repetitive for my liking. However Barbara Stanny gives some great strategies.

Here is a List of Books I plan on reading within the next two months:

The Road to Character, by David Brooks

The Vital Question, by Nick Lane

Everything Happens for a Reason and Other Lies I’ve Loved, by Kate Bowler

Homo Deus, by Yuval Noah Harari

Born a Crime, by Trevor Noah
