This was one of my most anticipated reads of early 2020 (can’t believe I posted that in January, seems like a lifetime ago). How’d it stack up? I was maybe a little disappointed by it overall, but it was still an entertaining and informative read.
It was SO HARD to pick just three upcoming books I’m excited about! I’ve been browsing through lists and opening a tab for every book that has sounded interesting and now I have like…40 extra tabs open and each one is so small I can barely click on it 😂 I finally went through and managed to winnow it down to three four, despite this being called Top 3 Tuesday, because I just couldn’t not include one of these.
My first two picks are both about technology and its ever-encroaching role in our lives (and where it can go so wrong), and my second two picks have to do with what I call “the unattainable, ideal Manhattan woman” – the one who’s a power professional (law, finance, consulting, etc), works out 5x a week and is perfectly toned, drinks green smoothies for breakfast, etc. I didn’t know I was so interested in these topics until now!
