TOP BOOKS TO READ OVER SUMMER
By Staša Zala AberšekTHE LITTLE BOOK OF HYGGE: DANISH SECRETS TO HAPPY LIVING by Meik Wiking Hygge isn’t just an idea. It’s a mood. It is a feeling. In Denmark, hygge is a part of people’s sense of self. Maybe that is why they say Denmark is one of the happiest countries in the world. Hygge is a unique way to happiness and a feeling in its own way. I can’t explain what hygge really is. You just feel it. It is when you are cuddled up on a sofa with a loved one, or laughing out loud with your friends. It is those sunsets you get to experience when the light through your window car is just right and the music is just loud enough. THE BEAUTY MYTH by Naomi Wolf Wherever you go, people expect you to act and be as the perfect woman from a magazine or the model strolling of a fashion show. We don’t want others to see our flaws, because when we show them, we become vulnerable. We can’t keep those high standards others expect us to have. It’s exhausting. And if you feel the same way, you have found yourself a book to read over the summer. I am not perfect, but who is? WHO STOLE FEMINISEM by Christina Hoff Sommers Is here summary even necessary? Did we really betray ourselves? Did we forget what feminism is actually about? “Feminism isn’t about making women strong. Women are already strong. It’s about changing the way the world perceives that strength.” —G.D. Anderson THE WOMAN IN THE WINDOW by A. J. Finn What is real? What is imagined? Who is in danger? It isn’t paranoia if it’s really happening … Anna Fox hasn’t left her house in 10 months, and instead she watches the world go by like a ghost. When the Russells move in next door, she begins observing them, and one evening witnesses something no one was supposed to see. EVERYTHING I KNOW ABOUT LOVE by Dolly Alderton Columnist Dolly Alderton has seen and tried it all. In her memoir, she recounts falling in love, fighting against self-sabotage, finding a job, throwing house parties, getting drunk, getting dumped and finding that your friends are always there at the end of every messy night out. It’s a book about bad dates, good friends and discovery that you alone are enough to survive.
