On My Radar: Smartphones, Uber, Asili and More…

This week has been a little rough and bumpy so, to be honest, I’m really glad that it’s Friday! Yay! For me, Friday is like that last 50 meters of the race. You know it’s almost over so you give it all you’ve got. It doesn’t matter how you ran the rest of the race, there’s nothing you can do about that now; but you can dig deep, push yourself and finish up strong! Happy Friday!

Welcome to the first edition of ‘On My Radar.’
One of the ways I work on expanding my horizons is through reading. I read a lot (both online and off). I have a wide variety of interests and come across some great articles, posts, books and products that I find interesting, enlightening, helpful, funny, special, etc.; basically stuff that’s too good not to share. In this series, I’ll be sharing my top discoveries over the past week. Enjoy!

Currently Reading…
Through Streets Broad and Narrow (Ivy Rose Series Book 1) by Gemma Jackson

Through Streets Broad and Narrow book

I love fiction books that expose me to different cultures, people, history that are not typically part of my world. This book definitely fits the bill. It’s set in 1920s Ireland and is a story of resilience and determination. Talk about making lemons out of lemonade; Ivy Rose Murphy is a special character!

Check out the synopsis and reviews of Through Streets Broad and Narrow on my fave book review site Goodreads and, if you’re interested in reading it, get the book here.

Till next time…
