2 Books I Read in February

Spread the love

This year is a year that I have decided to read more books, though k-drama series have been taking up my time, and I haven’t been able to smash my reading goals as I would love to.

To read as much as you want, I guess we should learn to set reading goals and try to stick to them, because just wishing to read won’t take you anywhere. I will be talking about it another time.

In February, I was able to read two books that came highly recommended by book reviewers, and I loved both of them.

Yinka where is your huzband?

The name alone of my first read will give you a glimpse of what the book is about. I must say, Lizzie did a good job with the characters and the plot of this novel.

The novel talks about singleness and the pressure Nigerian family members, particularly mothers put on their female daughters who have reached marriageable age.

Yinka is the female lead character in this book, the stress, pressure, and need to find a man-made change parts of herself in the hopes of getting Alex who only saw her as a platonic friend.

It didn’t help that her junior sister was married, and most people in her circle of friends. It took therapy for her to understand that she didn’t need to change to get a man.

This book also highlighted the fact that for most women, it does not matter that you have a high-paying job, a house, and anything money can afford, if you don’t have a man all your achievements seem to go out the window.

This book was an easy and interesting read for me, and I loved every bit of it. If you are looking for something interesting and also light-hearted to read, then this book is for you.

Keep going: 10 ways to stay creative in good times and in bad.

Any time I see Austin Kleon’s book I’m always eager to read because of how short but value-packed his books are, especially for creatives.

Whether you are creative, writer, or simply pursuing any career path you have chosen, this book gives you ideas on how to stay creative and consistent. It is filled with so much knowledge.

The part that stood out for me was where he admonished creatives to seee our works as gifts we are giving to people. It changed my mindset a lot. When we are giving gifts to people we always put so much thought into them and present it in a way that will be appreciated. That is what we should do.

Keep going is a book that I will certainly keep referring to. The 10 lessons shared here were worth every bit of time spent reading them. Also, the way the lessons were short but filled with lessons was also a plus for me.

I’m looking forward to improving my creative journey.

Conquerors, have you read any of these books, or which books did you read in February?
