So, I haven’t told you what I’ve been reading since June, and you’d think that would give me a lot of time to catch up on reading. You’d be wrong.

Reading Lately September 2018

I’ve been in a weird space lately when it comes to consuming media of any kind. I love the idea of it, but I don’t want to do it. At least, not right now. I’ve been in full-on creation mode, so I’ve written A LOT of words and blog posts and made tons of YouTube videos. But damn, y’all. I have zero desire to fill the proverbial well with anything.

So, if this post seems short, it’s because it is.

Reading Lately

Vlog Like a Boss by Amy Landino

I bought this book a while back and finally got a chance to do more than skim it during my retreat. I love Amy’s YouTube channel, and can’t recommend her stuff enough if you’re interested in social media and productivity. This book was great because I really love her YouTube video formula. It’s something I’m going to be using for my Preptober YouTube videos. If you haven’t subscribed to my channel yet, you totally should, especially if you want to see the madness I have planned for Preptober.

The Body is Not an Apology by Sonya Renee Taylor

This is one of those books that I read and couldn’t stop nodding the whole time. Like any woman who has been over marketed to her entire life, I have all manner of issues with how I look and a lot of those hang ups really bother me. But when you layer on the issues also brought on by race and ethnicity, it becomes even bigger. This book tackles those issues and gives the reader a framework to help with them. I really like how Taylor helps you see ways in which society and advertising is designed to make you feel a certain way, and how you can move past it. Also the central theme of the book is that a lot of issues of race and discrimination stem from no one having the ideal body. It was really mind blowing to read.

What Have You Been Reading Lately?

Clearly I need to get on it with the books. And if I’m being real, I’m working on three different ones right now, so maybe the next time I share what I’ve been reading lately, you’ll get a bit more. But I’m gonna need some recommendations, people.
