Intuitive Eating: A Revolutionary Anti-Diet Approach by Evelyn Tribole, Elyse Resch

☕☕☕☕ / 5

Diet culture is everywhere we look. We cannot escape it. There are tv commercials, social media ads, and sometimes even our friends and family get pulled in. But you can break the cycle and learn to listen to your body. 

This is the idea behind Intuitive Eating

I have been working on this for the past year or so naturally. This book was interesting and offered some new areas to think about and work on. I would recommend this book to everyone. We all need to work on getting away from diet culture.

It was an easy read and offered a lot of real-life stories. 

The Photography Storytelling Workshop: A five-step guide to creating unforgettable photographs by Finn Beales

☕☕ / 5

Ugh, this book. I could barely finish it. The second half basically repeated the first half but using different terms. It is clearly aimed at very beginners. Like people that have never taken a photo before? I mean, not even on your phone. It was far too simplified and offered no new info.

I cannot recommend this book to anyone. I think there are way better books out there for people looking to get into photography.

Daisy Jones and The Six by Taylor Jenkins Reid

☕☕☕☕ / 5

The 70’s were the decade for rock n roll. When you hear the phrase “sex, drugs, and rock n roll” you probably picture a band similar to Daisy Jones and the Six. The book documents the rise and eventual fall of a band told through an interview-style narrative. 

I absolutely LOVED this book! It may be one of my favorites of the year. I loved the oral history style writing, and the similarities to a favorite band (Fleetwood Mac anyone?). There were so many great quotes sprinkled throughout from all the different characters.

The book made me feel the emotions of the band. I loved and hated the characters as they work their way through the 70s music scene. I would recommend this book to anyone that enjoys Taylor Jenkins Reid or those that enjoy historical fiction and rock n roll of the 70s. 

I may not have been there but I felt like I was. And it felt like all the other biographies and documentaries I’ve seen from bands in that time period. 

What books did you read in June and which one was your favorite?
