What I Read in April

April started off SO strong when it came to reading and then, well, it definitely slowed down. I was sick for the majority of April and while you think that would be a good time to read, I always reach for the remote when I'm not feeling well. As much as I love reading, there's something so comforting about putting on an episode of Friends or Parks & Rec when I'm sick. I'm starting to feel better again but that means I just finished my April reads (and now starting my May picks mid-month). Here's what I read in April.

GIRLS BURN BRIGHTER - SHOBHA RAO 
You know when you finish a book and it just sticks in your head for days afterward? You keep thinking about the characters and how you wish there was more to read afterwards. That's what happened to me after I read Girls Burn Brighter. I was instantly hooked and couldn't put it down, I found myself constantly wondering what was going to happen next. The book is centered around two Indian women who end up in different places and desperately try to find their way back to each other as they face numerous obstacles. It's a powerful story on female friendship and I highly recomend it.

THE BIG LIFE: EMBRACE THE MESS, WORK YOUR SIDE HUSTLE, FIND A MONUMENTAL RELATIONSHIP, AND BECOME THE BADASS BABE YOU WERE MEANT TO BE - ANN SHOKET 
I'm always up to read a book that's going to motivate and inspire me, and that's exactly what this book did. The moral of the story is to work as hard as you possibly can - but for what you truly want. This book reminded me that we all want different things and that it's important to envision your own "big life" (what does it mean to have it all to you?) and to go after that. Ann Shoket used to be the editor at Seventeen mag and she touches on her past experiences but she also interviewed numerous other women who have accomplished different things.

WHAT I'M READING NEXT
I just started The Female Persuasion by Meg Wolitzer after hearing about it so much for the last few months. Anybody else starting this one? Afterwards, my plan is to read Better Than Before by Gretchen Rubin. What are you reading this month?
