Hello August

Hello loves!

I hope you all have been doing awesome.

I'm so excited for August and yet sad for the last full month of Summer. I seriously feel like summer just swept by and I didn't enjoy it as much. As much as I love Summer, Fall is my favorite season and I cannot wait for it. 

I'm starting my August with a new book. 
Hunger makes me a modern girl by Carrie Brownstein. I found out about this book through an Instagram page. I love to read and one of my favorite Instagram pages to follow is: @thebookishgirl. She recommends the best books and does the best pictures. In one of her recent post she picture the above book and stated it was the book of the month for July/August, by the moderator of her book club run by the one and only, the most fabulous, smartest witch of them all: Emma Watson! I love all her movies and admire what she does for women's right. She is doing such great work with the UN. 

When I found out about her book club, I had to join. And join I did!

About the Author & Book:

"From the guitarist of the pioneering band Sleater-Kinney, a candid, funny, and deeply personal look at making a life - and finding yourself - in music. 
Before Carrie Brownstein became a music icon, she was a young girl growing up in the Pacific Northwest just as it was becoming the setting for one the most important movements in rock history. Seeking a sense of home and identity, she would discover both while moving from spectator to creator in experiencing the power and mystery of a live performance. With Sleater-Kinney, Brownstein and her bandmates rose to prominence in the burgeoning underground feminist punk-rock movement that would define music and pop culture in the 1990s. They would be cited as "America's best rock band" by legendary music critic Greil Marcus for their defiant, exuberant brand of punk that resisted labels and limitations and redefined notions of gender in rock. 
Hunger Makes Me a Modern Girl is an intimate and revealing narrative of her escape from a turbulent family life into a world where music was the means toward self-invention, community, and rescue. Along the way Brownstein chronicles the excitement and contradictions within the era's flourishing and fiercely independent music subculture, including experiences that sowed the seeds for the observational satire of the popular television series Portlandia years later. 
With deft, lucid prose Brownstein proves herself as formidable on the page as on the stage. Accessibly raw, honest, and heartfelt, this audiobook captures the experience of being a young woman, a born performer, and an outsider and ultimately finding one's true calling through hard work, courage, and the intoxicating power of rock and roll."

I'll do my book review at the end of the month.

Have you all read the book yet? What were your thoughts on it?
