Bookclub #1 / Girlboss

I have decided to start this bookclub series on the blog. Each post will be a different book review of a book I have recently read. I really want to get back into reading, as unfortunately it’s a love of mine that I have stupidly neglected recently. I have a stack of books on my ‘to read’ pile and slowly but surely I will have a series of book reviews on my blog for you to read.


The first book in the series is #Girlboss. It’s written by Sophia Amoruso, the founder and CEO of Nasty Gal. It’s been a very popular book amongst Youtubers and Bloggers. I discovered the book from a Youtube video by Estee Lalonde otherwise known as Essie Button.

The first part of the blurb reads: “In the space of ten years, Sophia Amoruso has gone from high-school dropout to founder and Executive Chairman of Nasty Gal, one of the fastest growing retailers in the world.”

“#Girlboss is more than a book… #Girlboss is a movement” – Lena Dunham.

A compellingly motivational read’ – Telegraph.

This book is a biography of Sophia’s success. She tells you the ins and outs of how she created her business, her struggles and her passion – her company.

What I admired about the book was how honest she was throughout, she lets the reader know her past. How she hitch hiked, stole from supermarkets and had a rough start to life.

She gives you some hard hitting financial advice. The chapter ‘Money Looks Better in the Bank Than on Your Feet’ explains how having savings is important, money is better than having materialistic things. As well as this, she gives you a wide range of tips when it comes to interviewing, being fired and keeping a job.

Throughout the book, several other girl bosses give their story. These people being Jenne Lombardo, Alexi Wasser, Madeline Poole and Christina Ferrucci.

I would recommend this book for any woman, who want’s to be successful in their career and be a #Girlboss.

Hope you enjoyed this post.
