Hi there! Happy Wednesday! Today I want to share with you some of my favorite books that I have read and recommend for women. I have been big into personal development books over the last couple years. Many of my recommendations will be personal development books but I also have thrown in my favorite fiction books as well.
Choosing a favorite book is so hard because they’re all so good. So I’m going to give short blurbs of each and why I love them.
Girl, Wash Your Face & Girl, Stop Apologizing by Rachel Hollis
I love Rachel Hollis! She’s so down to earth and inspiring. The last paragraph of Girl, Wash Your Face will always stick with me. “… stop putting it off for tomorrow or Monday or next year. Stop crying about what happened and take control of what happens next. Get up, right now. Rise up from where you’ve been, scrub away the tears and pain of yesterday, and start again… Girl, wash your face!”
You’re a Badass by Jen Sincero is another favorite. She is such a straightforward, funny author who tells it how it is. I love the positive affirmations throughout the book and her delivery. One of my favorite quotes from this book is “If you’re serious about changing your life, you’ll find a way. If you’re not, you’ll find an excuse.”
Mastering Your Mean Girl by Melissa Ambrosini is the book for you if you struggle with negative self talk and lack confidence and self love. It’ll give you the tips to choose love over anything else and catch yourself allowing that mean girl to take over your mind. This book has helped me tremendously and now I am self-loving and have so much confidence.
I’m a firm believer of spirit, energy, and the Universe.
I just finished Super Attractor by Gabby Bernstein and LOVED IT and highly recommend it. I also have her other book The Universe Has Your Back but haven’t read it yet. Super Attractor is covered in stickies and highlights because there was so many great nuggets of info. I feel more connected to the universe after reading that book. It got me back to my meditation, affirmations, and being more intentional about connecting.
When it comes to fiction, my all time favorite author is Jodi Picoult. I got to meet her in high school when she donated 100 copies of her book to my school. She signed one of my books. Collectively between my sister and I, we own all of her books. I love how she writes and always has a plot twist that you can’t pick out! My favorite book is Leaving Time. I can’t wait to read it again.
I’d love to know – what are you favorite books? What genre do you enjoy reading? Are you a kindle reader or do you prefer a physical book?
