Things I’m Loving Friday: Favorite Books Edition

Happy Friday!

I hope you are off to a wonderful start to your weekend! I wanted to celebrate my Friday gratitudes by sharing some of my favorite books lately.

I’ve been really into inspirational books lately, and there certainly is a plethora of great options in this area. A few of my favorites lately:

1). The Happiness Project by Gretchen Rubin

Unknown-7

I read this book at the end of last year, and instantly felt inspired to start my own happiness project. I love Gretchen’s books because they are both relatable, but also filled with lots of research and scientific studies. She encourages you to learn about what works for you, and own it. Her first rule of adulthood is to, essentially, be yourself and own it. This book has been a big inspiration for me to learn about the things that are important to me and make me happy, while also branching out and trying new things.

2). #Girlboss by Sophia Amoruso

Unknown-5

This book has been super inspiring in terms of positive female role models in the business world. Though Sophia Amoruso never intended to be CEO of a multi-million dollar company, she worked hard and got there. This book is casually written in a way that you feel like you respect Sophia, but you also kinda want to be her best friend.

3). The Oh She Glows Cookbook

Unknown-4

This continues to be my favorite cookbook, ever. I couldn’t recommend this book any more highly. It is full of healthy, whole food recipes that are simple and delicious. I am always inspired by Angela because she taught herself how to cook, and evolved from hardly being able to cook anything, so writing the most magnificent cookbook ever. True inspiration.

4). May Cause Miracles by Gabrielle Bernstein

Unknown-3

I have worked through this 40-day guidebook twice now, and have had very profound experiences both times. I love the practicality behind the lessons, and how relevant each day is in the greater picture of living a happier and more inspired life.

5). The Desire Map by Danielle LaPorte

Unknown-2

The whole desire mapping processes was a very profound experience for me. I love Danielle’s encouragement in setting goals for your soul. Setting intentions on how you want to feel over what you want to accomplish. This book is so beautiful and wonderfully written, I couldn’t recommend it enough!

What books have you been loving lately?
