We all need a little inspiration every now and then. What better place to find inspiration than in thousands of words hidden away within books? The following four books are some of my favorites and are truly inspiring. Check them out!

Eat, Pray, Love

Eat, Pray, Love is Elizabeth Gilbert’s search for everything across Italy, India, and Indonesia. This is a true story of how one woman who seemed to have it all was lacking true happiness. She divorced her husband, struggled with depression, and left everything behind to take the adventure of a lifetime. Through it all, she did find her happiness and much more! Eat, Pray, Love is a fantastic read!


#GIRLBOSS by Sophia Amoruso is an amazing account of one woman’s journey from a homeless thief to CEO and Founder of Nasty Gal, a multi-million dollar clothing company. Amoruso is a badass with some great tips to inspire anybody with a dream!

Big Magic

Another one of Gilbert’s inspiring books. The talented author writes about living creatively, beyond fear. You will find some very inspiring stories about Gilbert and her colleagues and the lengths people go to in order to express their creativity.


Outliers: The Story of Success

This book by Malcolm Gladwell talks about the story of success. How do people get to where they are? Who helps them? This book really makes you think about who and what you have to be thankful for. The inspiring stories Gladwell tells are well thought-out and researched, it’s a must-read for sure!
