Today, I’ve been reading my next book. (I’m reading three at a time at the moment. That’s a hard feat if I may say so!) This book is How to Be a Hepburn in a Kardashian World by Jordan Christy. The book was released this past Monday, April 4, 2017.
This is more of an etiquette book than anything, but it could be classified as a Self-help book. So far I have enjoyed it, although I can’t say it is my favorite. I’ll break down what are feel are pros and cons.
First the pros: This book gives you a good perspective on how to handle relationships, personal or business. It gives you ideas how to manage your character and be a more presentable person and discover who the real you is. I also like the fact the book gives you tips on how to handle social media etiquette and work issues.
Second the cons: I don’t agree that everything in life goes the way Jordan says. She talks about being a hard worker and going above and beyond. I’ve been a hard worker and have done exactly what she has said. From my experience, I was looked at more of goody-two-shoes than being looked up at for all my hard work. I also noticed that although, this book was published with a Christian Publisher, she doesn’t mention how her faith is probably how she copes with issues and can get through the situations and examples she talks about. She even mentions things like the F-bomb and stuff like that. Real life things, but not something I think about everyday or a person of faith should be doing. Myself, I never ever say a curse word. (Truth!) This particular point is sort of sitting in the middle of the pros and cons list.
Now, I feel I can recommend this book to most girls (and young women 25+), because it leans in the middle of the road and is speaking to both faith and, possibly more, to secular individuals. Don’t get me wrong, it is good thing, but it is confusing to say this book is leaning more as secular advice book than faith driven advice book.
Did I enjoy this book? Oh yes! It has been quiet interesting. I have yet to finish the last few chapters which are going to be very interesting to me. But like I said I didn’t agree on everything the book spoke about or how to handle situations, but its just my opinion.
Before I sign off, I want to thank the great publishers over at Center Street (Hachette Publishers ) for giving my opportunity to read this book for an honest review (whether positive or negative)
