At the end of 2016 I decided that I really wanted to start reading more books, and so I challenged myself to read a book a month for the whole year of 2017. Well, I didn’t quite reach that, (although I did get really close) but I did read way more than I did the previous year (ahem…0 books….) and found some really awesome reads that that quickly became favorite books of mine. I wanted to share those with you today, because sharing is caring and I personally love getting good book recommendations. I’m just going to talk about my top 5 out of the 11 I read last year (you can see all 11 I read in the image above)

Favorite Books I Read In 2017

1. You Are A Bad*** At Making Money


This book is a sequel to Jen Sincero’s first book, You Are A Bad***(also an awesome book!) but this one focuses primarily on money and the subconscious beliefs we all have about money and how we can get past them. I absolutely loved this book and I plan on rereading it again this year!

2. Be Obsessed Or Be Average


This book by Grant Cardone is really motivational and makes you want to get out there and tackle your goals ASAP. I blew through this book and just couldn’t get enough! Great read if you have a lot of ambition and big goals to chase.

3. What I Told My Daughter


Nina Tassler collects short stories from various successful and famous mothers of daughters and asks them all one question: “What is the most important thing you told your daughter?” As a mom to my own little girl I absolutely loved this book and all of the insights and wisdom found in it. From Geena Davis, to Hillary Clinton, to Ruth Bader Ginsberg to Marie Osmond, there are so many amazing mothers with such amazing stories to share! Definitely a good read!

4. Designing Your Life


Written by Bill Burnett and Dave Evans this book is all about intentionally designing a life you love, and focuses primarily on career development and choices. It helps you to get clear on what you want out of life and how to find the right path for you. Super inspiring book!

5. Big Magic


This is a very well known book by Elizabeth Gilbert (the author of Eat Pray Love), and for good reason. It’s all about tapping into your inner creativity to live a magical life. It inspires you to have courage and go after what you want in life!

I am definitely going to continue the challenge this year to read a book every month. I feel much more productive when I take time out of my day to sit down to read a book, and it forces me to learn and grow and expound my horizons. It is something I hope to be able to continue for the rest of my life! So if you have any book recommendations, share them below! Here are some of the books I’m planning on reading this year that I’m excited to read!

5 Books I’m Excited to Read in 2018

1. How to be a Bawse by Lilly Singh


Okay, Michael got me this book for Christmas and honestly I’m already almost done with it, it is SO. GOOD. OMG.

2. High Performance Habits by Brendan Burchard


I heard about this book from both Lewis Howes and Amanda Bucci on their podcasts and have heard amazing things about it so I’m super excited to check it out

3. Judgement Detox by Gabrielle Bernstein


This book sparked my interest recently just from the title alone. Being judgement is something I’ve worked on a lot but is something I think we all could use a little help with at times.

4. The Subtle Art of Not Giving A F*** by Mark Manson


Excuse the title, but this is another book that I’ve heard only amazing things about so I want to check it out.

5. I Am Malala by Malala Yousafzai


I know this book was all the rage a few years ago (I just can’t keep up okay!) but her story is so amazing and inspiring so its a must read on my list.

If you’re like me and you have to have a hard copy of every book you read you can click on the images for the link to amazon (we do get a little kick back when you purchase through our links, so heyyy thanks for the support😉). Like I said, PLEASE share if there are any other books you love that haven’t made my list yet! I have a whole year to fill so I need more suggestions! Happy reading friends!
