As I’m getting older, I’ve been more and more interested in reading and finding new books. My parents would be both SHOCKED and very pleased to hear that. I grew up around thousands of books, seriously. But am just now really getting into them.

I’ve really learned to love laying down in bed at night with a good book to relax. Much better than TV or scrolling through Instagram endlessly on my phone. Right?

I’ve been reading this book- ADD MORE ING TO YOUR LIFE and I highly recommend! It’s been a great help and changing over my mindset to be much more positive. A great read! I even took it to Hawaii with me and read on the beach!

What’s next on my list? Read More!

ONE: THE SUBTLE ART OF NOT GIVING A FUCK

Really interested in this one! First on my list to get. “In this generation-defining self-help guide, a superstar blogger cuts through the crap to show us how to stop trying to be “positive” all the time so that we can truly become better, happier people.”

TWO: YOU ARE A BADASS 

Another book at the top of my list is this one. “With over 1 million copies in print, Jen Sincero’s You are a Badass has become the latest self-help classic: a book that has made skeptics believe in “The Force” and hone its power to create positive changes in their lives.”

THREE: A NEW MODEL

Love that this book is about body positivity! The world definitely needs more of this message, and I’m sure Ashley Graham has an incredible story to tell. “In this collection of insightful, provocative essays illustrated with a dozen photos, Ashley shares her perspective on how ideas around body image are evolving—and how we still have work to do; the fun—and stress—of a career in the fashion world; her life before modeling; and her path to accepting her size without limiting her dreams—defying rigid industry standards and naysayers who told her it couldn’t be done. As she talks about her successes and setbacks, Ashley offers support for every woman coming to terms with who she is, bolster her self-confidence, and motivates her to be her strongest, healthiest, and most beautiful self.”

FOUR: BEAR TOWN

“Beartown explores the hopes that bring a small community together, the secrets that tear it apart, and the courage it takes for an individual to go against the grain. In this story of a small forest town, Fredrik Backman has found the entire world.”

FIVE: THE RADIUM GIRLS

LOVE true stories AND women empowerment. Double win! “Written with a sparkling voice and breakneck pace, The Radium Girls fully illuminates the inspiring young women exposed to the “wonder” substance of radium, and their awe-inspiring strength in the face of almost impossible circumstances. Their courage and tenacity led to life-changing regulations, research into nuclear bombing, and ultimately saved hundreds of thousands of lives…”

SIX: OH SHE GLOWS

We’re always looking for new recipes for dinner, especially vegetarian and vegan options. Can’t wait to dive into this book! YUM! “This is Angela’s long-awaited debut cookbook, with a trasure trove of more than 100 moutherwatering, wholesome recipes — from revamped classics that even meat-eaters will love, to fresh and inventive dishes — all packed with flavor. The Oh She Glows Cookbook also includes many allergy-friendly recipes — with more than 90 gluten-free recipes — and many recipes free of soy, nuts, sugar, and grains, too!”

Any other amazing books you’re reading that I need to try? Please comment below and let me know what I need to buy for the summer!
