Girl power design book July’s Book club choices

Lifestyle

Hello, welcome back! I hope you’re all doing well! As some of you may know from my earlier post I’m taking a bit of a break this month. I would urge you to look at your calendar and do the same, cut back on some things for a month to refresh and regroup. Summer is a great time for this! For example ditch the gym and get outside, make self care more of a priority etc. It’s important to mix things up and give yourself a break. You can always go back to things. Okay enough of that onto today’s post!

The books for July’s book club are:

1) Rise Sister Rise by Rebecca Campbell

This is another book by Rebecca Campbell who featured on June’s Book Club! Rise Sister Rise is about embracing your true femininity in times where it’s no longer a man’s world. This book looks really interesting looking at self care and spirituality!

2) Like She Owns the Place by Cara Alwill Leyba

In this book Cara talks about how she achieved her own confidence and how you can do the same. She touches on topics such as how to trust yourself to know what is best for you and to look at what truly matters and not things like how skinny you are etc.

I can’t wait to read both of these books!! Please let me know how you get on! Don’t forget I will be reviewing these books at the end of the month and may look to include comments so let me know what you think!

Girl Power Design Book Club Review -June:

Lifestyle

Welcome back! Today I have a very exciting post! I’m going to talk about the books we have been reading for this month’s book club! Please comment below with your thoughts and comments on the books I would love to hear from you.

She Means Business by Carrie Green:

This is a book for women who are entrepreneurs and aspiring entrepreneurs who want to achieve their dreams. Carrie shares her business and mindset tips which helped get her to exactly where she wanted to be.

Girl Power Design Review:

I loved this book! I thought it was really inspirational and insightful! Carrie motivates you to start living the life you want and to dream big! She explains how she got started from doing a law degree, to having a phone unlocking business before creating the amazing Female Entrepreneur Association! She gives you small achievable tasks to create your own mindset for success! It’s not all about creating your own business you could use the tips even if you’re not self employed.

How many stars: ⭐️ ⭐️⭐️⭐️⭐️

The Earth Is Hiring by Peta Kelly

Peta looks at the new way of doing things the millennial way in this book. She looks at what we can do to make the world a better place and use our creative talents to do so.

Girl Power Design Review:

I have to be honest I was a little bit disappointed by this book! It started off really well but I found myself losing interest as the book went on. There are some really important topics discussed in this book such as how we can do more for the planet, how important Mother Earth is, guidance for entrepreneurs, money mindset and creating your own scripts for success! I feel like too much was tried to put into one book and I would have liked some of the chapters to have been shorter or more direct as I found myself getting a bit lost in what was said. This is just my opinion and it may just be that this wasn’t the right time for me to read it. I have heard Peta Kelly speak on few podcasts and she was very inspiring. If you have read this book I would love to hear your opinion.

How many stars:⭐️⭐️⭐️

Light Is The New Black by Rebecca Campbell

This is probably one of the most spiritual books on the list. It looks at how you should follow and listen to your soul callings and do what lights you up!

Girl Power Design Review:

I loved this book and I know many of you did too! It gave me goosebumps and made me cry! The message really hit home! Do what you love to do, what lights you up and by doing this alone you will help raise the vibrations of the earth. This is definitely for the more spiritual women out there if you’re not very spiritual and you think everything spiritual is very woo woo, then this may not be for you. I thought it was amazing though and couldn’t put it down! Rebecca puts lots of mantras, poems and questions we can ask ourselves throughout this book which really helps to keep you engaged.

How many stars: ⭐️⭐️⭐️⭐️⭐️

Little Black Book by Otega Uwagba

This book is a toolkit for working women everywhere with practical advice tips and much more.

Girl Power Design Review:

This was another book which was a little bit disappointing! I heard lots of good things about it, while it is okay and has some useful points it didn’t blow me away. It has some good tips for women in business but it was a little bit too basic for me. If you’re new to the work place this could be a good one for you.

How many stars: ⭐️⭐️⭐️

Eleanor Oliphant Is Completely Fine by Gayle Honeyman

This is the only fictional book on the list this month. It looks at the life of Eleanor Oliphant who leads a very simple life and looks at the struggles she faces with mental health problems and connecting with the people around her. It shows is the importance of taking the time to look after ourselves.

Girl Power Design Review:

This was a brilliant book which I couldn’t put down! It took me a while to settle into the story and connect with the main character but then I was away and needed to know more. Would definitely recommend this book!

How many stars: ⭐️⭐️⭐️⭐️⭐️

Let me know your thoughts on these books! I hope you have enjoyed reading them! I think overall they have been really good and there was a nice mix of topics. Let me know if you have any suggestions for July’s book club!
