While I am not made for music festivals, I really enjoy reading about them and pretending that they are something that I can attend. Festivals is a music lovers’ guide to the festivals you need to know. It starts in the 60s and chronologically talks about some of the biggest music festivals around the world and there are a TON of really awesome photos throughout this book. (And I just love the throwback 60s./70s vibe to the font used for the title!) There is a page or so about each festival with how it started, if it’s still happening, where it’s located and then a few photos. If you’re a festival go-er, definitely check this book out to see what ones you might want to hit up next!

About the Book
I was first introduced to Justin Baldoni when he was on Jane the Virgin. When I saw that he had a book out, I had to check it out. I was actually very surprised by how open he was in this book, called “Man Enough” which is an exploration of masculinity. You always hear about how growing up as a young girl is difficult due to all the media pressure on the perfect body, perfect makeup looks, etc and I never really thought that young boys also had similar things to face when they were growing up as well. I think Justin did a great job explaining difficulties that he and other men will face growing up, sometimes coming out of his comfort zone and being quite vulnerable and telling stories from his youth that may be considered embarrassing. But I think that it is important to share these stories – so if a young boy going through similar situations picks up this book he will know he is not alone. I think reading it as a female also opened my eyes a bit as well because I definitely thought guys had it so much easier and after finishing the book I am not sure that is so true anymore! He touches on a lot of great subject and even if you don’t know him from an actor, I think it would be a beneficial read!
