5 awesome books working moms( mom to be) should read

09 March 2022

I always love to read books.

I believe that by reading books, I can expand or gain my knowledge. I know, there are many mediums to expand and gain knowledge now like you can watch youtube, online classes but I still believe and go for reading books. Go for what is work for you ya.

But, after I became a mom in 2020, I slow down a bit my reading because I need to take care of our baby and I always feel sleepy. Last year, I'm busy with my new job and new challenges so I didn't read that much. 

This year, I determined to read 12 books and more because I feel good whenever I finish reading books and I learned something from the books. I bought some new books and I re-read my old books too. Its feel refreshing.

You may be curious, when did I read my books?

Usually, I will read my books after my son goes to sleep. My son will sleep maybe around 10pm -11pm so I will stay up until 12am is just to read my books and I love this routine now.

Without further due, here are my list of awesome books working mom( mom to be) should read.
