9 tips to build a dope booklist

Last year I decided that I wanted to read two books every month….24 books.  It sounded excellent at the time but where in the H&M do I find 24 book titles to even read.  Here I had this great idea but absolutely no idea where to start. 

Where do we all go when we need answers…….GOOGLE.  After finding myself on page 10 (you know the search was real because we usually stop at page 2) I knew that my mission had ended before it had started.  But one day as I was scrolling on IG I came across this hashtag…#myleikbookshare and here were SEVERAL books that Myliek Teele, the CEO of Curlbox (who is an avid reader by the way) and thousands of people sharied photos of what they were reading……JACKPOT! This is exactly what I was looking for to jumpstart this new lifestyle as a reader. 

After I posted “Oh! So you don't read: 5 reasons people fail to pick up a book” I was overwhelmed by the response of people who reached out to look for a place to start.  They realized that they needed to step their reading game up, but was looking to me for direction, where to start? What to read? How do I read so many books? (I carve out at least and hour 4-5 days a week btw) but most importantly where in the hell did I find all of these good books to read? After my initial goldmine find on Insta, I have been able to develop some tips along the way to get started with your own reading list, and ladies if you stay until the end I have a nice surprise for you!
