This month I read a lot more than normal, but almost all of them I’ve read in ebook version. I’ve been taking more of an effort to read books on my phone or computer instead of reading Twitter/Insta, gossip sites, blogs or articles that don’t actually matter to my life. I’ve really like this change, and feel like I’m not missing out on anything.
Matthew is a personal banker for Swiss United and unexpectedly dies in a plane crash leaving his wife, Annabelle with a lot of unanswered questions. This story parallels with Marina who is a journalist tracking down the same unanswered questions to take down the shady Swiss United bank and runs into a lot of obstacles. There are a lot of fun twists, and the ending is predictable but really enjoyable.
I’ve read this book before, but I found a lot of value in revisiting the concepts in this book. I think this book is on par with the common business book How to Win Friends.
I’ve followed Chris’ work for a while and used to listen to Side Hustle podcast everyday. I enjoyed reading this book, it is very nice as a coffee table book with a few nuggets of wisdom and a lot of inspiration. The book is filled with stories that have been featured on the Side Hustle School podcast that go into a bit more detail. There are sections of the book dedicated to how you can replicate the business models people used which make it seem all very easy and something anyone can do.
This book was fascinating – kept my attention the whole time. Nine new guests are checked into Tranquillum House for a wellness retreat that is meant to change their lives. This wellness retreat is very strict because of the “new protocol” the owner Masha is implementing and it goes awry when this protocol goes over the top. Each chapter is written from a different person’s point of view which is great for my curious/nosy brain.
Lucy and Josh working as assistants in a publishing house and they have mean “games” they play with each other to get through the day which is ultimately the hating game because they hate each other. When the opportunity for a promotion comes up for both of them, things between them get twisted and their game becomes more reality. This book was so very good, I read it in a couple of hours and couldn’t put it down. I was so invested in the story I feel like I know these people. I can not wait for when the movie comes out!
This book started off slow and I wondered if I should just give it up, but I’m really glad I didn’t! Eddie and Sarah meet on the side of the road and fall quickly in love after week; only for Sarah to be ghosted right after they part. She is convinced she didn’t misread his interest in her and reaches out to his friends on Facebook to make sure he isn’t in danger. She goes a little too far, and doesn’t understand why he won’t respond to her messages. We learn more about her past, and finally closer to the end we find out why Eddie has ghosted her.
