I thought this book was hilarious The writing reminded me of Tom Wolfe in terms of giving an inside jaundiced look at a secretive business Putting a yogi in the middle of Wall Street set up many ripe situations that paid off I liked that Allegra was trying to find her own way in a tough world and the scenes at work made me sweat as if I were there The yoga scenes captured the vibe of the many yoga studios and students I ve come across tho I m nowhere near as accomplished as Allegra This is not a cotton candy book There s some bite to it and intelligence and some crack writing And funny as hell Allegra Cobb spends her days and nights glued to her desk at Anderson Shaw aka Goldman Sachs in the Healthcare Group where most of her Princeton undergrad colleagues would kill to be However not one to go with the flow yes that s an awful yoga pun sorry Allegra finds herself dreaming of xploring about Yoga and it s practice and principles She hopes she can make Hawks Way (Hawks Way enough money from her annual bonus to ahem Breathe In Cash Out and start her own studio But these last few months are just not going Allegra s way including accidentally sleeping with her new boss so when she meets famous instagram personality SkylarSmithYoga she decides it may be time to put these ideas into practice for real I reallynjoyed both the financial and social aspects of this novel as well as learning about yoga which at times did go over my head Learning that the author actually left her Goldman Sachs job to practice yoga I too used to work there made me Family Men extremely interested t 5Breathe In Cash Out by Madeleine Henry is just the uick laugh out loud funny book I needed right nowWhat it s about Allegra Cobb is a second year analyst for Anderson Shaw and really hates her job In a world where your work is already late when you get it and there is incessant use of the word team all she really wants to do is teach yoga So when her yoga idol Skylar Smith reaches out to her and offers to mentor her Allegra jumps at the chance But becoming a teacher and bringing balance to her life might be a lot harder than Allegra thought it would be Breathe In Cash Out is such a funny book and I found myself laughing out loud several times It is a light read but also speaks to finding yourself and your way through the world There will be people that want to bring you down and you might not think you can do it but this book says you can find a way I really liked Allegra s character and found her very relatable From a dad who pressures her to succeed to a job that she doesn t love there should be something in here that will resonate withveryone The chapters are short and the pace is uick so lots of readers should be able to get through this in one sitting It didn t Creative Participation even take me 45 hours to read which was a nice change from the 75 hour long book I read before it I think Breathe In Cash Out would make a good palate cleanser from thrillers or books with heavy themes I never realized how intense the world of investment banking is but after reading this I know there is no way I couldver do it Allegra was such a smart character and one you want to love Anyone that can do that job has to be dedicated and I can tell Henry brought a lot of knowledge to the book from her work at Goldman Sachs and investment management I love when author s talk about something they know and it made me like this book ven I wasn t completely satisfied with the way things are left with Skylar but besides that Breathe In Cash Out was a very solid book for me Songs the book brought to mind Falling Down by Avril Lavigne from the Sweet Home Alabama soundtrack Final Thought Breathe In Cash Out reminded me a little of Fitness Junkie and I would say Henry s writing style is similar to that of Lucy Sykes If you ve read and loved that book then I think you will like this one as well It will definitely be a favorite for wo Breathe In Cash OutMadeleine HenryWow all I can say is this story kept me giggling You will find yourself laughing out loud as you are reading BREATHE IN CASH OUT by Madeleine Henry will have find yourself laughing loud as you

coaster ride As you are reading you will find yourself cheering for all of them praying they can work out their problems and be happy once againBREATHE IN CASH OUT is a funny story that will hold you hostage until the very last page Once you start reading it will be very hard to put down You also won t be able to stop yourself from laughing at Allegra and the situations she gets herself into All Allegra wants to do is get to her yearnd bonus check from her boring Wall Street banking job then she is going to cut herself loose She has big dreams of becoming a yoga teacher and opening her own yoga studio Nothing is going to stop her Besides liking Allegra I had taken an interest in Tripp her co worker with his stupid one liners and his Personnel Management in Government even dumber bro jokes He kept me giggling throughout the storyBREATHE IN CASH OUT is without a doubt one of my top funniest books I ve read in 2019 so far I was instantlymotionally invested in all of the characters My heart broke for Allegra when she met her Instagram guru Skylar She learns a hard lesson as she begins to realize that people aren t always what they seem to be Madeleine Henry sure knows how to hook the reader with an awesome story I can t wait to read by MadeleineI received a complimentary copy of this book from Atria Books through Netgalley Opinions Out of This World expressed in this review are completely my own The publisher compared this one to The Devil Wears Prada and while I usually hate those type of comparisons this one was dead on I had NO idea the world of investment banking was so cutthroat and harsh and seeing it juxtaposed alongside the yoga world was not only fun I was fascinated by the inside look to both worldsBesides Allegra who by the way won me overarly on with her biting wit and sheer determination there was a supporting cast of characters that added The Time It Never Rained even snark and dry humor the type that just really speaks to my soul Tripp is in Allegra s pod at work and his bro jokes and stupid one liners made me crack up Her budding friendship with yoga guru Skylar was also amusing as well There was much to this one than just humor though it had a lot of depth and dimension both in the characterization and the overall story itself This is a beach read with bite it s incredibly smart and hasnough juiciness to satisfy my need for gossip as well Super impressive debut I would definitely read from the author and I can totally recommend this as a summer readBreathe In Cash Out in three words Smart Sharp and Witty Allegra Chopp has a plan push through to Bonus Day then uit her frantic job at the investment banking firm Anderson Shaw get her 200 hour yoga teaching cert and live her dream life as a yoga teacher All she has to do is survive the next two months Until she fucks her boss And meets her new yoga guru Skylar SmithI wanted to like this so much than I did But I was tricked by that cute cover into thinking this would be a cute contemporary romance with laugh out loud mad caps while skewering both the ruthless capitalism of Wall Street and the hypocritical reality of yoga influencersThe world offered in Breath In Cash Out is one that is completely superficial with people obsessing over money and fame and the appearance of having it all while actually dying and on the inside So some turn to. “ The Devil Wears Prada meets Wall Street” TheSkimm in this sizzling debut about a banking analyst who plans to finally pursue her yoga career full time after her bonus hits but until then she’ll have to keep her sanity intact and her chakras alignedAllegra Cobb’s resume straight A Princeton grad second year analyst at a top tier bank one time American Yoga National Competition Champion Allegra Cobb’s reality Spending twenty four hours a day changing the colors on bar charts overusing the word “team”
