2017 Reading Challenge - A Book with Career Advice

Image
Good Evening bookworms :)
Guess what its Thursday and you know what that means
A new review this time for the category - A Book with Career Advice 

#GIRLBOSS
by Sophia Amoruso



First of all
Again I helped myself to a review from goodreads

* "In #GIRLBOSS Sophia Amoruso tells the story of her incredible success. 
She shows us how everyone can become successful when you trust yourself and follow your instinct. Sophia Amoruso is the founder and CEO of clothing company Nasty Gal, a company with sales of over $ 100 million and employs over 350 people. 
But the first thing she ever sold online was not a piece of clothing - it was a book she had stolen somewhere. Until her twenty-second she had all sorts of jobs and no idea what she wanted to do with her life. Then she decided to try some vintage clothes on eBay. 
The rest is history

So lets talk about todays book...s :)
For the category - A Book based on mythology




Not necessarily a category with many options especially if it needs to be only based on and also a category you wont find many "Grown ups" Books ;) Of cause you could always read something like The Odyssey or The Iliad but those are actually the mythology and not the piece based on...
