Life seems to keep us busy, literally 24/7, so when we need a quick escape we turn to our favorite books. At The Sampson House, we rallied our go-to books this fall that keep us going. Here they are:
1). Angie: Yes Please by Amy Poehler. "I love it! This book is an insight into Amy Poehler's life and is written in a way that makes it funny and inspiring. It's great for relieving stress because it's an easy read and it makes me laugh out loud. It is also full of one-liners that are encouraging in career and life lessons."
2). Kerry: Is Everyone Hanging Out Without Me? (and other concerns) By: Mindy Kaling. "Mindy is awesome, love her. Need I say more?" Another easy, go-to is Real Simple Magazine. I find the layout and the way they use columns very calming and inspiring.
3). Val: "My current read is Sharp Objects by Gillian Flynn. I literally just started. On chapter three now. Flynn also wrote the book Gone Girl. So good, smart and well-written. Both reads are a dark psychological thriller which is right up my alley. From a young age I was always into creepy reads from authors like R.L Stine and V.C. Andrews. I'm hoping Sharp Objects is equally as good as Flynn's first novel. It's said to be a relentlessly creepy family saga that gives you the chills. Can't wait!"
4). Milana: "I am currently LOVING #GIRLBOSS. If you love fashion, inspiration, and a rag-to-riches story, this is it. Founder and CEO of Nasty Gal, Sophia Amoruso, takes you on her journey from being a teenage-dropout to creating a $100-million+ business. This is inspiring because we can all relate to Sophia at some point in time. And let's be real, who doesn't want to be their own #GIRLBOSS? :)
5. Maddie: Currently a senior at SDSU is working hard studying and getting over Hobo Day. With a pretty intense semester, Maddie has mostly been into reading her textbooks thoroughly and acing tests.
