Becoming by Michelle Obama

Friday, March 15, 2019
This autobiography is one of the very few, you can´t walk by. Michelle Obama was an outstanding First Lady who didn´t ask for that position but filled it with grace, dignity and her very own way of thinking. She is an icon and probably belongs to the pool of women who are the most watched and photographed of our time. Respected and loved not only by many Americans but most of the rest of the world as well. And she showed us and still does, that you can be in a powerful position and still act and speak with laureateship and respect for others.

In a life filled with meaning and accomplishment, Michelle Obama has emerged as one of the most iconic and compelling women of our era. As First Lady of the United States of America – the first African-American to serve in that role – she helped create the most welcoming and inclusive White House in history, while establishing herself as a powerful advocate for women and girls in the U.S. and around the world, dramatically changing the ways that families pursue healthier and more active lives, and standing with her husband as he led America through some of its most harrowing moments. Along the way, she showed us a few dance moves, crushed Carpool Karaoke, and raised two down-to-earth daughters under an unforgiving media glare. In her memoir, a work of deep reflection and mesmerizing storytelling, Michelle Obama invites readers into her world, chronicling the experiences that have shaped her – from her childhood on the South Side of Chicago to her years as an executive balancing the demands of motherhood and work, to her time spent at the world´s most famous address. With unerring honesty and lively wit, she describes her triumphs and her disappointments, both public and private, telling her full story as she has lived it – in her own words and her own terms.

I´ve heard so many great things about this book, that I couldn´t wait to get my hands on it.

Everything that I add to my shelves, in what way ever and read during the past week or am still reading, I will write about it.  And maybe I tell you a bit about the upcoming things on Inkvotary, that is if I don´t forget it and have something to share with you *smile*

International Women´s Day

Friday, March 08, 2019
Today is the International Women´s Day and I can clearly say, that I am proud to be a woman.


But being a woman isn´t always easy in the times we´re living in. It seems that we still need to prove that we are worth equal pay, that we are worth getting jobs we often do way better than any male human could.

Some years ago, I discovered the Green Mountain books by Marie Force. Cameron, the daughter of one of the main figures in this new novel, was the main figure back then and I had a great time reading it.
