One of my New Years Resolutions is to read 12 books: One for each month. And since I'm devoting this year to professional development and success in my future im giving myself some "homework" books to read to better myself as a person and in my future carear. I split it into three Sections: Advertising, Clasics and Memoirs. Here are the books I'm planning to read:
Janurary: Not That Kind of Girl (Lena Dunham)
I chose this book because I actually bought it in November after seeing it on Instagram and Urban Outfitters. I bought it on amazon because the price is cheaper, and have read the first two chapters during finals week. I've never seen Lena Dunham but her book is seriously inspiring me.
Feburary: This side of Paradise (F. Scott Fitzgerald)
I read the first have of this book second semester of Senior year of High School and regret not finishing it, It's such an under rated Fitzgerald. All about an entitled kid who graduates from college and realizes that the real world isn't all its cracked up to be. Reminds me a lot of the Bell Jar by sylvia playth. Which is one of my favorites. I chose February because this is a very wintery novel in my opinion.
March: Truth Lies and Advertising (Jon Steel)
An influential strategist came to my school last semester and said that anyone who wants to go into strategy or even advertising has to read this book. I bought it on amazon a while back but haven't got around to reading it yet. Although I'm not sure what type of advertising that i want to go into learning about strategy can only help me in my search for my perfect advertising career path.
