📗 When I put this book in my stories a lot of you messaged to ask if it’s good - I didn’t really know how to respond. Careers Advice for Ambitious Women is written by “Mrs Moneypenny”, a privately educated woman who rose to the top of her career in the 80s and 90s, then started a column in the Financial Times to help others. The book was written around 2010. .
.
.
📅 You wouldn’t think that just a decade of distance from the advice would age it, but there are some parts that left me shaking my head - like suggesting a woman can’t get a promotion if she wears bright colours. And always having a spare paid of tights in your bag. The whole first chapter told me I need to get an MBA if I’m ever going to be successful. .
.
.
.
📰 But there’s pockets of great advice in here too, such as having a “third dimension”; a side project, or cause that you donate your time to. She talks about prioritising these and while I sat counting all my third dimensions (Ganbaru Guide, school governor, Japanese Circle...) it did make me realise that I’m doing rather a lot. She also has a really great chapter on how women can have anything, but we can’t have everything. You can’t have an amazing career, a great relationship with a partner, happy children, looking after ourselves.. all at once. .
.
.
🏋🏼‍♂️ The advice that I’m taking away is from the chapter about finance. I am really bad with money, both my own and understand business. So I’ve taken Mrs Moneypenny’s advice and have bought a Financial Times and am reading through the more accessible articles. She advises to always carry it around as you will attract conversations with interesting people if you do - let’s see if she’s right! .
.
.
I recommend taking this book with a bucket of “would this work today?” Salt, but it’s great for working mums, women employed in companies, and women starting out in their careers. .

We LOVE your authentic #futureboard with @pinterest pictures! Yes! ❤️ #futureboards #Repost @coachnicduc with @get_repost
・・・
Crazy excited and super proud to have put this little number together. Creativity , technology, photography and design are not my strong points ( or so I’ve been told most of my life). So this was more then just creating a vision board. It was the whole process and reassuring myself along the way that I could do this and that it would look amazing. The first obstacle was technology - Pinterest - collecting and electronically sorting the pictures. I was chuffed with the way I did this. Then the photo side ( I didn’t realise how much was involved in printing photos 🤣🤣) ....size, Matt or gloss, landscape or portrait 😆.
Finding a frame was an interesting process- an old wedding sign from eBay.
Then the arrangement of the photos so that they would all fit ..... no gaps ( as directed by Charlie)😂😂. She is awesome at all this kind of stuff and to be honest,  I was scared of showing her the finished product. This was an empowering experience and reinforced my belief in the power of thought and self talk. I could have settled for some magazine cut outs stuck onto A4 paper. It would have done the job, saved a heap of time and money and allowed me to remain within my comfort zone. However, in stepping out and being ok with failing , I was able to create something beautiful and meaningful as well as rewrite the old story in my head. This is a great metaphor for everything we do in life. #writeyourownstory #sarahcentrella

Cześć Kochani.
Co aktualnie czytacie? Ja wczoraj wieczorem skończyłam "Krwawe więzy" @n.r.paradise_autor i kurde co tam się wyprawiało 😱 Ja chcę drugi tom na już 🤩 Mam nadzieję, że już w przyszłym tygodniu uda mi się wstawić tutaj opinię o niej.
.
.
Lubicie czytać książki w klimacie mafijnym? Ja uwielbiam 💖💖💖 Czytaliście tą pozycję? A może dopiero planujecie? Dajcie znać w komentarzach ⬇️⬇️⬇️
.
.
Dzisiaj natomiast zabieram się za "Księżniczkę incognito" @insignis_media, która wczoraj do mnie przyszła 💜 Mam nadzieję, że środek będzie równie dobry, jak okładka, która jest po prostu przepiękna 🤩
.
Miłego dnia Kochani 😘

Thank you @booksparks (partner) & @sourcebooks for my gifted copy of "Slay Like A Mother: How to Destroy What's Holding You Back So You Can Live the Life You Want" by Katherine Wintsch!
.
This empowering self-help book champions the kind of self-doubting that mother Katherine Wintsch, CEO of The Mom Complex, calls "Never-Enough," the kind of mother whose guilt, desperation, & fear about not being enough is overwhelming.
.
Based on more than a decade of research, "Slay Like a Mother" takes a brave new look at the increasing population of modern mothers & reveals the good, the bad, & the ugly behind the battles they fight within. Brave, supportive, & insightful, the stories and advice shared in this book will teach women to live more confidently, enjoy the present, & slay like a mother.
.
This book is exactly what all women should read. It discusses ways women can & should support & empower each other & how we should be lifting one another up instead of tearing each other down. (Let's face it, women can be the absolute worst, am I right?) We often say we are all about supporting other women, yet we are also the ones judging each other the hardest, comparing ourselves to one another, trying to conform to what we feel society expects us to look like, & pointing out what we are told are flaws on ourselves and others. Being a woman & a mother is really fracking hard!
.
I know I, for one, am my own biggest critic. I strive too hard for perfection in everything I do, & it ends up backfiring on me in one way or another, & I end up mentally or physically exhausted. Motherhood is hard, one of the hardest jobs in the universe; but it doesn't have to be.
.
I will chose to be the best me I can be, but not get down on myself when I don't feel like I am matching my own expectations or societies even. I will choose instead to love myself- my imperfect self- & be the best mother I can be & not compare my life or looks to another mothers. I will be the Mother of Dragons (#GOTreference) & slay like one as well!
.
"Slay Like a Mother" is thought-provoking, inspiring, relatable & brutally honest. The paperback comes out on 3/3 & the hardback is available now.

“For a harbinger of doom, Elena Bartell was beautifully turned out in steampunk chic. A wide silver buckle adorned ebony ankle boots, standing out beneath black, tailored pants. They were a dark contrast against her crisp, white linen shirt, set behind a silky, black-and-silver embroidered vest with a fob-watch-style chain running from a button into its pocket. Maddie was transfixed. How unexpected.
Bartell’s compact body radiated power and control and drew every eye to her. Even standing with the paper’s editor, general manager, and news chief, three men who each had six inches on her, she was easily the most authoritative person in the room.
Scanning the gathering, Bartell’s eyes were clear-blue and sharp. She smiled faintly through the introduction droning on in the background.” -  The Brutal Truth.

I’ve finally got round to reading Vox after seeing the many reviews here. It’s a dystopian novel set in an America run by a puritanical religious elite and where the rights of women have been withdrawn to the point where they are only allowed to speak 100 words a day - and if they go over that limit they are given an electric shock courtesy of a word counter bracelet they are forced to wear. The novel encompasses women’s rights, gay rights - if you are gay you are sent to a concentration camp - and the role of religion in government. Unfortunately, it didn’t really work for me. The main character, a female linguistics researcher, wasn’t inspiring in any way, the plot, particularly the scientific elements, was difficult to follow and the ending - I did persevere to the end - was too contrived to be believable.  For me, Vox pales in comparison to The Handmaid’s Tale.

[RECENZJA PRZEDPREMIEROWA PATRONACKA]
⭐⭐⭐⭐⭐/6
TYTUŁ: "Tu i teraz" 
AUTOR: Ewa Pirce 
TŁUMACZENIE: - 
WYDAWNICTWO: NieZwykłe 
LICZBA STRON: 351
DATA PREMIERY: 8.03.2020
.
"Nie buduje nas to, co przychodzi z łatwością, tylko to, na co musimy zapracować. Czasem musimy okupić to walką albo cierpieniem (...). To, czego doświadczymy, rzutuje na naszą przyszłość i siłę, z jaką będziemy się mierzyć z tym, co przygotował dla nas los."
.
Noelle jest młodą kobietą, która nosi na swoich barkach dramatyczną przeszłość. Brutalnie doświadczona przez życie, pozbawiona przez nie najpiękniejszych wartości staje się cieniem samej siebie. Nie jest w stanie udźwignąć tego, co zgotował jej los. W tragicznym momencie spotyka Charliego, w zasadzie to on zjawia się przy niej niczym Anioł Stróż. Jest jej wybawieniem, czy stanie się również lekiem na całe zło? Mężczyzna rozumie Noelle jak nikt inny. Dostrzega jej ból i cierpienie, rozumie jej postępowanie, gdyż on sam jest bohaterem traumatycznej historii, jednak zawalczył o siebie i odbił się od dna.  O przeszłości niewątpliwie nie da się zapomnieć, ale czy Noelle zmierzy się z nią, zaakceptuje, a co za tym idzie, otworzy się na przyszłość?
.
Będę nudna, oj będę, znowu. Na swoje usprawiedliwienie dodam tylko, że to nie moja wina a autorki, która pisze tak cudowne, życiowe, wzruszające i ściskające serducho historie 😍. W przypadku twórczości Ewy Pirce działa to tak, że nazwisko widniejące na okładce jest dla mnie najskuteczniejszą rekomendacją. Więcej nie potrzebuję. Autorka jako jedna z nielicznych potrafi rozbić mnie emocjonalnie, tak zagrać na moich uczuciach, że po policzkach spływają mi łzy. W jaki sposób? Nie wiem. Nie mam pojęcia. Może podobną wrażliwością? Przepięknym stylem pisania, bo Ewa wręcz maluje słowem. Tworzy postaci, które niewątpliwie żyją gdzieś wśród nas, borykają się z podobnymi problemami. Może tracą nadzieję, a autorka im ją daje. Noelle i Charlie zostali mocno poturbowani przez los. Jednak to od nich zależy, czy ich życie ponownie nabierze kolorowych barw. Dla obojga ma ogromne znaczenie właśnie tu i teraz. Nie będę ukrywać, że poraz kolejny nie potrafiłam pohamować łez. (C.d. w komentarzu ⬇️)

[RECENZJA PRZEDPREMIEROWA PATRONACKA] ⭐⭐⭐⭐⭐/6 TYTUŁ: "Tu i teraz" AUTOR: Ewa Pirce TŁUMACZENIE: - WYDAWNICTWO: NieZwykłe LICZBA STRON: 351 DATA PREMIERY: 8.03.2020 . "Nie buduje nas to, co przychodzi z łatwością, tylko to, na co musimy zapracować. Czasem musimy okupić to walką albo cierpieniem (...). To, czego doświadczymy, rzutuje na naszą przyszłość i siłę, z jaką będziemy się mierzyć z tym, co przygotował dla nas los." . Noelle jest młodą kobietą, która nosi na swoich barkach dramatyczną przeszłość. Brutalnie doświadczona przez życie, pozbawiona przez nie najpiękniejszych wartości staje się cieniem samej siebie. Nie jest w stanie udźwignąć tego, co zgotował jej los. W tragicznym momencie spotyka Charliego, w zasadzie to on zjawia się przy niej niczym Anioł Stróż. Jest jej wybawieniem, czy stanie się również lekiem na całe zło? Mężczyzna rozumie Noelle jak nikt inny. Dostrzega jej ból i cierpienie, rozumie jej postępowanie, gdyż on sam jest bohaterem traumatycznej historii, jednak zawalczył o siebie i odbił się od dna. O przeszłości niewątpliwie nie da się zapomnieć, ale czy Noelle zmierzy się z nią, zaakceptuje, a co za tym idzie, otworzy się na przyszłość? . Będę nudna, oj będę, znowu. Na swoje usprawiedliwienie dodam tylko, że to nie moja wina a autorki, która pisze tak cudowne, życiowe, wzruszające i ściskające serducho historie 😍. W przypadku twórczości Ewy Pirce działa to tak, że nazwisko widniejące na okładce jest dla mnie najskuteczniejszą rekomendacją. Więcej nie potrzebuję. Autorka jako jedna z nielicznych potrafi rozbić mnie emocjonalnie, tak zagrać na moich uczuciach, że po policzkach spływają mi łzy. W jaki sposób? Nie wiem. Nie mam pojęcia. Może podobną wrażliwością? Przepięknym stylem pisania, bo Ewa wręcz maluje słowem. Tworzy postaci, które niewątpliwie żyją gdzieś wśród nas, borykają się z podobnymi problemami. Może tracą nadzieję, a autorka im ją daje. Noelle i Charlie zostali mocno poturbowani przez los. Jednak to od nich zależy, czy ich życie ponownie nabierze kolorowych barw. Dla obojga ma ogromne znaczenie właśnie tu i teraz. Nie będę ukrywać, że poraz kolejny nie potrafiłam pohamować łez. (C.d. w komentarzu ⬇️) - 3 days ago

JANUARY BOOK HAULIE (a bit late 😁 and no haul but a haulie due to a reasonable balance of life and reading)

Madeline Miller- Circe
@madeline.e.miller
Robin Hobb - The Golden Fool (The Tawny Man Book 2)
@therealrobinhobb 
Robin Hobb's writing is always beautiful and exciting. It was great to see how Fitz's story is continuing in this 2nd trilogy. The stakes for the last book are high.

Madeline Miller's book was a bestseller aimed at modern women that for my personal taste was still too conventional, leaving magical powers and supposed female  indepence aside. A greek myth will stay a greek myth and no woman will change anything much of its interpretation of our sex. But one could be a bit bolder.
