Need book recommendations for personal growth? As a personal development junkie, I live and breathe books, podcasts and audiobooks all day every day.
When I come across a great book, I often read it twice...as in right after I finish the last page. Yes, it's that inspiring and gets me out of a deep dark funk!
Here are my three favorite best selling inspirational books for women and written by female authors.
3 Best Selling Inspirational Books for Women by Women:
Life can be hard: your lover cheats on you; you lose a family member; you can’t pay the bills—and it can be great: you’ve had the hottest sex of your life; you get that plum job; you muster the courage to write your novel.
Sugar—the once-anonymous online columnist at The Rumpus, now revealed as Cheryl Strayed, author of the bestselling memoir Wild—is the person thousands turn to for advice.
Through poverty, adolescence, and a fraught relationship with her mother, Ashley Ford wishes she could turn to her father for hope and encouragement. There are just a few problems: He’s in prison, and she doesn’t know what he did to end up there.
Somebody’s Daughter steps into the world of growing up a poor Black girl in Indiana with a family fragmented by incarceration, exploring how isolating and complex such a childhood can be.
As Ashley battles her body and her environment, she embarks on a powerful journey to find the threads between who she is and what she was born into, and the complicated familial love that often binds them.
Feeling lost? This is how you find yourself, your voice and live in your truth.
There is a voice of longing inside each woman. We strive so mightily to be good: good partners, daughters, mothers, employees, and friends.
We hope all this striving will make us feel alive. Instead, it leaves us feeling weary, stuck, overwhelmed, and underwhelmed.
Untamed is both an intimate memoir and a wake-up call. This is a must-read especially if you are on a soul searching journey.
Mental health is wealth.
This includes our emotional, psychological, and social wellbeing. Our mental health affects how we think, feel, and act every day.
That's why, three years ago I resigned from my corporate career to work on my mental health and wellbeing.
It was one of the best decisions of my life.
