It’s been a little while since we have talked about books and I wanted to share some of my most recent favorites. I also really like when you guys Snap me and comment book recs to me, so keep them coming! Ok here are four books I recommend for this month, in no particular order!
Telling you that I love this book is an understatement. I have read this book at least 3 times and go back to it a couple times a month for a quick skim. This is a no bullshit, get-off-your-ass-and-do-something kind of book. Tim S. Grover is the trainer behind greats like Michael Jordan, Kobe Bryant, and Dwayne Wade. He takes athletes at the top of their game and pushes them beyond great and into legendary status. The book is extremely blunt and brutally honest (my cup of tea) in the best kind of way. If this book doesn’t have you feeling like you can conquer the world. then I don’t know which book will. Read this book! That’s all I can say.
I hope your April has been treating you as good as mine has been treating me.
I have spent a lot of this month working on new projects and working on bettering myself. It has been a really interesting year for me, putting myself out there in ways I never have before.
Lauryn and I started the podcast, Snapchat entered my life, and I have been getting some really good feedback from all of you which has really inspired me to create some new things that I hope to share with everyone soon!
On that note, I have included some really good books this month. Some you may have heard of, and some maybe not.
I get excited for these posts! I may just be a book nerd but I get pumped on these posts! As some of you know I am constantly reading and trying to find a book or author that really speaks to me. An author or a story that gives me some kind of hint or life hack or entertainment value. I read fast and as much as I can and at the end of the month I try and pick four books. That’s right four, one a week, for you to possibly read in the upcoming month.
I am a firm believer that everyone and I mean everyone should be knocking out at least one book a week. It’s really not that hard. My tip for doing this is to actually schedule time each day to read and do nothing else. Just like you would schedule time in the gym, schedule time for your brain! It will pay off a lot more than the gym. I promise.
You all liked Michael’s book recommendations SO much that I figured we’d do kind of a book club?
Thoughts? You into it?
We don’t need to do four books every time but I just think we should make it a thing. I mean I feel like I want to subscribe to his book club & he’s my fiancé…LOL ( babe, you get books! ).
Obviously we’re also both VERY interested in what you’re reading, loving, recommending…so PLEASE leave any suggestions below or message us on Snapchat.
Ok so Michael’s going to breakdown his latest favorites ( by the way, he’s a total speed reader…jealous ):
This month I read a lot! I was zipping through pages like you’ve never seen.
I got a lot of messages on how I read so fast and so much. I use a technique called speed reading which I will write more in-depth about later on. Simply, speed reading is reading rapidly by assimilating several phrases or sentences at once. This sounds a lot more confusing than it actually is.
Basically the mind is able to put multiple words and sentences …
After the response on my last book post and due to popular demand I am going to start writing about my monthly book recs at the end of each month. I think everyone should try and get through at least one book a week so I will give four recommendations each month.
Let me know in the comments what type of books you guys prefer and I can adjust my picks.
Here are my monthly book recommendations for February!
Have you ever heard of the banana king of America? This book is based on the life of Samuel Zemurray, a Russian immigrant who became one of the richest men in the world. He made his fortune on bananas! Along the way he hired on mercenaries, took on the CIA, started revolutions, overturned foreign governments and built one of the biggest fruit companies of his time. It was a really quick and interesting read and I highly recommend it.
