The best books for summer weekends


When you have one (or many) hectic work weeks (hello burnout) it is necessary to spend some  time during the weekend with entertaining and stress-free books. 

Eleanor Oliphant is completely fine

The book you should read if you want to be moved.

Because she doesn’t know (or doesnt’ want to admit) that life should be so much more than fine! A story of an unexpected friendship which helps repair her profoundly broken heart. A smart, warm, and uplifting story of an out-of-the-ordinary heroine whose deadpan weirdness and unconscious wit make for an irresistible journey as she realizes. . .
The only way to survive is to open your heart.

The Subtle Art of Not Giving A F*ck

The book you should read before you go on holiday

When you are so stressed you cannot sleep and then so tired you cannot wake up, maybe it’s time to take a step back and re-evaluate some aspects of your life: Did you know you always have a choice? Marketed as the anti-positive manifesto to all this “think pink” attitude that has taken over us lately (#guilty), I would rather say that the book is more about choosing yourself which things/situations/people etc. you SHOULD give a f*ck about. A very entertaining and definitely thought provoking read.

How to Get Sh*t Done

The book that will help you get things done & motivate you

Please excuse the swearwords, it was not on purpose. I liked this book because of its subtitle: 

And it is not only about women but men, too. We are so overwhelmed all of the time that we are literally lost in our thoughts. Taking a step back is again advised and you will be amazed by how much time you will gain just by stopping a little bit to clear your head.
