Recent Reads No. 2



This summer I told myself I wanted to read more books since my 'to read' list on my phone seems to be never-ending. I've made a good dent in my list and wanted to share with y'all what I've been reading lately!



Women Who Work by Ivanka Trump
This is hands down my favorite book I've read recently. I didn't know much about Ivanka so it was interesting reading about her experiences working in real estate, then for the Trump Organization and then moving on to create her own business. The book is a compilation of her life experiences and advice as well as wise words from people she admires and has taken advice from (there is a lot of information in this book). Now I keep checking the Ivanka Trump HQ website for more info and advice each week!

18 Holes With Bing by Nathaniel Crosby
After my parents both read this book they said it had to be my next read. Before reading this book the only thing I associated Bing Crosby with was Christmas music, so I'm glad I have a better idea of who he was. It was really interesting because so many people described him as a golfer who sang for a living because golf was his true passion. Highly recommend this read for those who play golf!


The Magnolia Story by Chip and Joanna Gaines
This was a really quick and fun read. I wasn't sure if it would be a waste of a read since I've seen all of Fixer Upper and wondered what else would I need to know about them? It ended up being a really cute story about how Chip and Jo met and how they started flipping houses. It made me like the show even more!

The Zookeeper's Wife by Diane Ackerman
Even though this is a nonfiction book, it reads like a fiction book because it is based off the diary of Antonina Żabiński. The book is always better than the movie, so I skipped seeing the movie and opted to read the book. It's a different kind of World War II book because it doesn't focus so much on the fighting but rather how it impacted this specific community and how citizens dealt with and survived the war. 

Unbroken by Laura Hillenbrand 
This one is actually on my to read list that's piling up on my nightstand right now. I saw half of the movie in history class a few years ago and really liked it so I figured it would be good to read the book (the book is always better, right?).

The Swamp by Eric Bolling
Eric was my favorite host on The Five so I knew I had to pick this up when it was released at the end of June. It pretty much just exposed all kinds of past political scandals and why things need to change in Washington. Really interesting and I love his sarcastic sense of humor.
