Hard to believe it, but it is already November! This month’s edition of The Good Read features a few self help/motivation books for you all to enjoy, the new poetry book by my favorite poet Rupi Kaur, and one awesome new cookbook from one of my favorite bloggers and Instagram accounts, Half-Baked Harvest! Some of these were recommendations, others I have had my eyes on for a while, but I hope one or all of them may be of use to you all! Enjoy 🙂
Leave Your Mark: Land Your Dream Job. Kill It In Your Career. Rock Social Media. by Aliza Licht
I feel like this book is more relevant than ever for women today now that so many of us are using our online presence as some form of a side hustle! This book covers it all—from brand building to communication, Aliza gives her readers all the tools to leave our mark on the world. This is one giant pep talk in a book and one I know I will be reading time and time again whenever I’m in need of extra motivation.
Drive: The Surprising Truth About What Motivates Us by Daniel H. Pink
This is an awesome book that dives head first into a topic that many of us do not fully understand that is what drives and motivates us as human beings on a daily basis in our personal and professional lives. Without giving too much away, this book really gets you thinking about your personal motivations in life and is a really moving read.
The Sun and Her Flowers by Rupi Kaur
This book was a recommendation from a friend of mine who picked it up nearly the day it came out. I love Rupi’s writing and have saved nearly every one of her poems from Milk and Honey to my “Words” board on Pinterest, so naturally I wanted to get this book. There is something about a hard copy and being able to flip through the pages of a book that can never be replaced, and this is the perfect book for days where I need a little cheering up.
Half Baked Harvest Cookbook by Tieghan Gerard
Half Baked Harvest was one of the first food accounts I ever followed on Instagram and one I have always loved to follow along with. Tieghan cooks up so many amazing meals and I was so excited when I heard that she was putting together her first cookbook. While I may not know her personally, I always feel such pride for girls over on the ‘gram hitting it big with projects like these. I have a feeling I’ll be flipping through the pages of this book quite often; not only are there great recipes in here but the photographs are a literal feast for the eyes!
