@Free Ebook Ø What Would Frida Do? ð eBook or E-pub free

I wanted to read this book as I am fascinated by Frida Kahlo and the life she led The book is nicely separated into sections that describe Frida from when she was a girl to her early death What I liked about the book:* the writing flowed very well* a lot of historical facts and information that I did not know prior to reading this book* cute chapter endings as to what Frida would doWhat I did not like about this book:* I was not expecting such a biographical type book butfun notions as to what Frida would do in certain circumstances (this initially bothered me as it wasn’t what I was expecting, however I did end up enjoying the historical facts and information)* the author noted that Frida was sexually fluid early on in the book I noticed that throughout the book she would constantly make note that Frida would have same sex relationships, using this information for attempted shock value I found in unnecessary and a bit disrespectful Example from chapter 9: “her several infamous extramarital liaisons (many of which were, yes, with members of the same sex).”* there was much description of Frida’s artwork, however there were no actual pictures of them Having some imagery of her artwork would providecontext to the writing Thank you to NetGalley for the advanced copy for an honest review. I know Frida's art, I know her legacy, but I must be one of the few who don't really know her story I was too young to catch the hype of the 2002 film, my knowledge of her doesn't extend much further than the abundance of Instagram and Pinterest quotes Arianna Davis introduces Frida with a fresh take on traditional biography She captures Frida's art, love, loss and pain beautifully and I really enjoyed Davis' anecdotes on what Frida meant to her I would absolutely recommend this book to anyone interesting in getting to knowabout Frida Kahlo's life, from beginners like myself or those looking for a new take.*I received this book free from NetGalley in exchange for an honest review @Free Ebook å What Would Frida Do? í A contemporary guide to life, love, and happiness inspired by the extraordinary artist Frida Kahlo Revered as much for her fierce spirit as she is for her art, Frida Kahlo stands today as a brazen symbol of daring creativity She was a woman ahead of her time whose paintings have earned her generations of admirers around the globe But perhaps her greatest work of art was her own lifeWhat Would Frida Do? explores the feminist icon's signature style, outspoken politics, and boldness in love and art, even in the face of pain and heartbreak The book celebrates her larger than life persona as a woman who loved passionately and lived ambitiously, refusing to remain in her husband's shadow Each chapter shares intimate stories from her life, revealing how she overcame obstacles by embracing her own idealsIn this charming read, author Arianna Davis conjures Frida's brave spirit, encouraging women to persevere, to create fearlessly, and to stand by their own truths 4.5/5 starsI received a digital copy of this book from Netgalley and the publisher My review is my own and not influenced in any way.And now, here I am, sitting down to write a book on the life of Frida Kahlo, adding oneto the dozens of volumes about the artist that already line bookshelves around the world.This was absolutely delightful to read Admittedly, I didn't know much about Frida Kahlo going into this book Like many others in the world with a passing fancy for art at one point or another, I know just enough about Frida and her works to appreciate her lifestyle, but not muchthan that.As the author states numerous times, Frida is a relatively common household name in pretty much every country If there's even ONE thing you can remember about her when hearing her name, it's the eyebrows and the job title However, What Would Frida Do did an incredible job of delving into the depths of Frida's life and served that information on a platter that was easy and fun to comprehend as a reader Each chapter focused on a particular aspect of her life–from the constant, chronic pain she suffered throughout her entire life thanks to the bus accident in her teen years, to her sexual escapades as a bifemale with a polyamorous husband–and ended with tips from the author about how readers might choose to fashion their life similarly to Frida's ideals to live it to the fullest Honestly, the only downside to this book is the fact that reading about how freely and wonderfully Frida lived her life while we're in the midst of a global pandemic that discourages social interaction probably wasn't the best idea, because I'm currently wishing I could implement Frida's lifestyle choices and make friends as easily as she apparently did If you have even the slightest interest in the enigma that is Frida Kahlo, I HIGHLY recommend giving this one a go Even though I have the ARC on my phone, I'm going to be purchasing a paper copy of this for my shelves! I don't give a shit what the world thinks I was born a bitch I was born a painterbut I was happy in my way. free copy provided by netgalley3.5 starsi really enjoyed itwhat would Frida do? is a question i have asked myself before.Frida has always been a very interested character to me She was quite the star of the moment, and it trascended over the years this books really takes the things from frida's life, explains them , and gives an interesting take on details that maybe not so many people know about. The Most Important Thing for Everyone in Gringolandia is to Have Ambition and Become 'Somebody,' and Frankly, I Don't Have the Least Ambition to Become Anybody I really enjoyed the format It was broken up into lessons, Davis seeks to inspire readers to live a littleboldly by asking themselves, What Would Frida Do? The mix of biography with quotes and letters is a great way to experience and learn about the iconic Frida Kahlo. A contemporary guide to life, love, and happiness inspired by the extraordinary artist Frida Kahlo.Thank you Netgalley, Perseus Books (publisher), and Arianna Davis (author) for giving me early access to this book via an EARC in exchange for my impartial review 3.5, rounded up to 4 stars Wow This book is a clear, open, and loud celebration of the life of Frida Kahlo I am no stranger to Frida, her work, and her influence in pop culture today This book, however, shows a whole new perspective to her life and achievements that makes you want to embody everything that Frida was and still represents today It was quite short and I was able to finish it really fast.We're taken through Frida's background and career, life and death We see life and pop culture decades after her death, still very much influenced by her The whole purpose of this book is that the author wants YOUR life and MY life to be influenced by Frida, her boldness, and her brightness Often, we find ourselves asking, What would x do (in this situation)?, because we want to tailor our responses and reactions to things just as they would That's what the author wants us to do here I don't read a lot of self help books but boy, am I glad I picked this one up You'll be inspired by Frida's life and lessons from her stories and hopefully, you'll pick up one or two things that will help you live a bolder life For everyone who wants to live a free and full life void of restraints, this one is for you ❤️ What would Frida Do? by Arianna Davis is chockful of years of research on every aspect of Frida's life! I learnedthan I could have ever have hoped to learn Arianna's insightful perspective was a welcome change from the way most biographies are written I loved how she made Frida come alive by placing Frida in the room with her as she types and researched Frida's life!No stone was left unturned! Frida's life emerges fully so that the reader truly feels that they, themselves have conducted years of research I absolutely enjoyed the walking/sitting commentary from the author as she visited Frida's home aka museum It's amazing that she lived and died in the same home So many aspects to her life have never been truly revealed until now This is a MUST READ book for any woman who is seeking assistance from another woman on being independent and doing living the life they want to live To take care every single day How one dresses one's body is a canvas I honestly never really gave much thought to getting dressed in the morning Now, I can't stop thinking about it Amazing how much life Frida crammed into her fortyseven years on this planet It's up to each and every one of us to LIVE and be vocal about our own beliefs I absolutely loved reading this story!! Well done, Frida! Well done, Arianna!! Well done, women of the planet! Viva la Vida!! Long Live Life!! What Would Frida Do? by Arianna Davis is an absolute delight, from the gorgeously bright cover to the inspiring celebration of a life lived beyond convention and without fear contained within, this is a beautiful tribute to a woman who remainsiconic and relevant than ever nearly seven decades following her death Ms Davis has delved deeply into the creative and revolutionary spirit of Frida to reveal a life that was full of happiness and purpose despite a plethora of obstacles When reading about the fascinating life of Ms Kahlo, it is difficult to believe that so much life was celebrated in an all too brief existence of fortyseven years.This is a charming and extremely inspiring look at a woman who would not be held back by physical restrictions, but bravely lived life on her own terms, never bowing to convention and refusing to be labelled, a true revolutionary until the very end If you have ever been even mildly curious about the iconic Frida Kahlo, you need to read this book Recommended.Many thanks to NetGalley, Perseus Books and Seal Press for the opportunity to read this wonderful and illuminating book. I'm not exaggerating when I say that this book has changed my way of thinking I read the book while analysing Frida's work and watching documentaries made on her life, or just plain old YouTube videos I knew of the work, I knew of the person, but this book gave me an insight towards how I might be the person Frida was, The book became this missing piece to the puzzle of Frida There were so many facts that I just didn't know about The author has done such a wonderful job articulating her life in these pages.
