July 2013 Twitterature
Last month was rather slow as I only finished 3 books, but was on the brink of finishing a few more. This shows in July’s Twitterature roundup as I finished 8 books! As always, this is a part of Modern Mrs. Darcy’s Roundup and consists of short, casual book reviews in less than 140 characters.
The Eczema Cure by Emily Bartlett: An excellent overview of what you can do yourself to heal #eczema – specifically from a dietary standpoint
The Ethical Slut: A Practical Guide to Polyamory, Open Relationships & Other Adventures by Dossie Easton & Janet W. Hardy: Fascinating look at different ways of doing #relationships. Thought-provoking, challenging and eye-opening with takeaways for everyone. (Full review here)
Suite Francaise by Irene Nemirovsky: Lost manuscript from a Russian Jewish emigrant in France who died during the Holocaust. Unfinished, unpolished and so beautiful.
The Little Book of Contentment by Leo Babauta: How to be satisfied and content with your life, while realizing that doesn’t have to mean leading a stagnant or lazy life. #Recommended (Plus it’s free)
The Business Brain Book by Jan-Willem van den Brandhof: Pretty good overview of how to use your brain better covering mind maps, speed reading, memorization techniques etc.
Diary of a Freedom Writer by Darrius Garrett: If you liked The Freedom Writer’s Diary (book or movie), read this for the story straight from one of the kids. (Full review on Wednesday)
To Sell Is Human: The Surprising Truth About Moving Others by Daniel H. Pink: Fascinating and intriguing, shows us how we are all in the business of selling today. #Recommended
As always I invite you to find me and connect with me on Goodreads.
