#1 ‘Untamed’ by Glennon Doyle
The one all of your friends keep recommending. Untamed is equal parts memoir and a wake-up call. By showing how she stepped into her identity, Glennon Doyle gives you the courage and confidence to step into yours. When you’re done but craving more, rewatch my Happy Hour with Glennon!
#2 ‘The Boy, the Mole, the Fox and the Horse’ by Charlie Mackesy
This beautiful book from Charlie Mackesy, an illustrator, artist and author, will resonate with your whole family. Full of friendship and life lessons, this book will stick with everyone. Plus, the 100 beautiful drawings turn the story into a true work of art.
#3 ‘Where to Begin’ by Cleo Wade
Where to Begin is being called the “ultimate inspirational guide.” Cleo Wade collected poems, mantras and illustrations to create this book of hope and power. It’s everything you need heading into 2021.
#4 ‘The Gifts of Imperfection’ by Brené Brown
A self-help classic. The Gifts of Imperfection might be celebrating its 10th birthday, but the advice at the center still rings true. This bestseller is your starting place if you want to let go of expectations (self-imposed or otherwise) and embrace a life of authenticity and imperfection.
#5 ‘Maybe You Should Talk to Someone’ by Lori Gottlieb
One of my favorite books from one of my favorite people! Lori’s book combines her experiences as both a therapist and a patient. It will have you thinking hard and laughing out loud.
#6 ‘Make Your Bed’ by William H. McRaven
You’ve probably seen Admiral William H. McRaven’s viral graduation speech. This practical and optimistic book builds on the ten principles in his speech and will captivate you start to finish. All around, a perfect graduation gift!
#7 ‘The Subtle Art of Not Giving a F*ck’ by Mark Manson
Mark Manson refuses to sugarcoat, which is exactly why his self-help guide is so popular. Irreverent, funny and unapologetic, this self proclaimed “counterintuitive approach to living a good life” will help you do just that. Read and reread as necessary.
#7 ‘The Best Advice I Ever Got’ by Katie Couric
Katie here — I wrote this book in 2012 for anyone who wants to see how today’s best and brightest got it right, got it wrong, and came out on top. Among the many voices to be heard include financial guru Suze Orman on the benefits of doing what’s right, not what’s easy; director Steven Spielberg on listening rather than being listened to; quarterback Drew Brees on how his (literal) big break changed his life, and more.
