Celebrate February Holidays With These 7 Books #fridayreads #books #Februaryreads

February 2020 Reading List | SobeSavvy.com

Hello February 2020! Is it me or does it seem like January was the longest month ever? So much has happened in the world these last 31 days that we must remind ourselves to practice self-care and celebrate life! Stephen King once said “Reading is Self-care” and I most certainly agree. I also believe not only does it educate your mind but it is the perfect way to unwind and unplug when the world gets a little crazy. Even though February is a short month, it is jam packed with holidays to celebrate. I curated this February reading list to share with you based on the following holidays:

Black History Month

Bedtime Inspirational Stories 2~50 Black Leaders Who Made History by L.A. Amber

“Today a Reader. Tomorrow a Leader” Those words are on the first pages of this inspirational book for young readers. Filled with beautiful illustrations and affirmations, life lessons, historical facts and valuable information, every child would benefit from learning about Black Leaders Who Made History. We plan to read from this book every night at dinner time or bedtime during Black History month but I know my daughter will treasure this book always! Get Volume 1 and this 🆕️ Volume 2 available on Amazon.com.

February 3 National Women Physicians Day & February 11 National Inventors’ Day

101 Black Women in Science, Technology, Engineering and Mathematics by L.A. Amber

As a girl mom to a bright 8 year old daughter, I am thankful to author L.A. Amber for this book featuring the accomplishments of black women in S.T.E.M.! This book encourages our youth to “Get Out There & Explore The World. Have Fun & Make History”! In the back of the book there is an exploration journal for kids to write down their discoveries. Throughout the book, you’ll learn about physicians, inventors, engineers and more! This book truly celebrates Black Girl Magic and the magic that lies in us all! Next month, is Women’s History Month, so this one would be great to read in March and beyond! Available at Amazon.com

3 Books That Celebrate Strong Women | Book Review + Giveaway @MangoPublishing #books

Hello Readers and Hello April! Can you believe how quick March went?! I can not, but I am always happy for a new month to arrive and to share new books that I have read. Since March is National Reading Month and Women’s History Month, I thought I would share with you 3 Books That Celebrate Strong Women, which is something we should do no matter what month it is, right?! Plus, I have a gift for you to win and keep the celebrations going! Stay tuned..but first, let me tell you about these three phenomenal books from Mango Publishing.

STILL I RISE

STILL I RISE- THE PERSISTENCE OF PHENOMENAL WOMEN- by Marlene Wagman-Geller

You may recognize the title Still I Rise from a poem by Maya Angelou. The Author’s Note shares that this book is a tribute to that poem and dedicated to the women who helped her rise. STILL I RISE, [which was #1 New Release on Amazon] is a paperback book that answers the questions— Who are the great women leaders in history? Who are the women heroes who personify “girl power”?
STILL I RISE embodies the strength of character of the inspiring women profiled. Each chapter will outline the fall and rise of great women heroes who smashed all obstacles, rather than let all obstacles smash them. There are so many unknown stories of women who quietly and courageously changed the course of history! I can guarantee there will be stories in this book that will not only resonate with you but leave you inspired to lead a life well-lived!

DEAR WOMAN

DEAR WOMAN by JUST MIKE THE POET- Michael E.Reid

I have heard so much about this author [@justmikethepoet] via social media and hearing how empowering this book has been for women that I was excited to read DEAR WOMAN. This hardcover book is poetry+self help+inspirational all wrapped up into one dope read! This book was respectfully written by Michael E. Reid aka Just Mike The Poet to encourage all women to:

Stop cutting yourself short: You must wear your crown at all times. Every woman is a queen, and you don’t have to wait for someone to give you your crown. 👑

Take a journey: No one has just one page in their life story. That’s why DEAR WOMAN has everything—quotes, letters, short stories, and poems to educate, motivate, encourage, and provide a little tough love.

Want the best for yourself: Michael E. Reid wrote this book and started with these encouraging words “Dear Woman, This is YOUR book. With it comes the responsibility to be a better woman.” This is more than a self-help book, more than just relationship advice for women—though it does include both of those things. No, this inspirational open letter, full of poetry and wisdom, is life advice just for you.

Do it for you: You are an amazing woman. Deep down, you know that. DEAR WOMAN isn’t here to tell you that you need to improve. Rather, it’s here to tell you that you can be your true self—for yourself.

Filled with great advice and written to shed some love and light, DEAR WOMAN is a great read and reminder for every woman to Be Confident, Know You Deserve The Best and Love Yourself!

THE FEMINIST FINANCIAL HANDBOOK

THE FEMINIST FINANCIAL HANDBOOK •A Modern Woman’s Guide to a Wealthy Life• Brynne Conroy

I start a new, full time job in a couple of weeks and this time around I want to be smarter about saving and investing my earnings as well as paying off debt. I was attracted to THE FEMINIST FINANCIAL HANDBOOK to help me with these goals. I plan to start reading this book this week and can’t wait to learn more about general financial planning principles. THE FEMINIST FINANCIAL HANDBOOK provides actionable tips for overcoming obstacles and explores financial issues with anecdotes and perspectives of women of different races, sexual orientations and abilities. I look forward to reading the stories and learning from the advice of women who have worked through the struggle, and achieved their goals.
