The Koolik Group Recommends...

  • 01/15/21
 
Since it is the goal of many to read more in 2021, and books can be integral in achieving some of our other New Year’s resolutions, we reached out to our team to see what they’re reading in the New Year! The books vary greatly, so there’s something for everyone on this list!
 


Evelin is reading The Invisible Life of Addie LaRue

Our Operations Manager, Evelin, is currently reading and recommends "The Invisible Life of Addie Larue" by V.E. Schwab. When asked about this book, Evelin said "It’s partly based in New York City and partly based in Paris, it’s spaced over 300 years, it’s an amazing read.”

Joanie is reading Group & American Dirt

We asked Joanie what she's been reading lately, and she gave us these responses! She says that "Group" is a raw, honest memoir that provides a look at a brilliant, ambitious woman's journey coping with personal relationships and body issues through group therapy. "American Dirt" is a novel about a mother and son's journey and subsequent struggle to leave Mexico to escape drug cartel violence, and come to America.

Evan is reading Zero to One

Evan is currently reading "Zero to One" by Peter Thiel, and had this to say, "the main point is that creating a game-changing company means going from zero to one--from nothing to something--instead of going from something to a slightly better something. It's a great look into the modern competitive-business landscape."

The second book she gave us is "Becoming", by former First Lady, Michelle Obama. She called it "a beautifully written story of one of the most impressive women of our generation. You feel like she’s talking directly to you, so inspiring!”

Lindsey is reading The Girl on the Train & Love Warrior

Lindsey had two recommendations from what she's recently read, the first being "The Girl on the Train", about which she said, "I was drawn to it by a friend, it's like a romantic mystery!" The second book was "Love Warrior", of which "Untamed" is the sequel (Lindsey also recommends "Untamed" as well!) She describes "Love Warrior" as "she talks about the pain she went through, how she was at a low point and she was able to get through it, to show that if she can get through it, anyone can get through anything."
