The Books I Picked & Why

Untamed

By Glennon Doyle

Book cover of Untamed

Why this book?

This book is such an amazing read. I laughed, I cried, I had a lot of moments of self-reflection. We’re all on a journey in this life and Glennon’s story encompasses so many real moments we’ve all been through as women. We’re here to grow and this book really takes you there and makes you think... and it also makes you realize that you’re not alone. Everyone has their moments when they fall, and as long as you dust yourself off and get back up and continue on, you’re winning.

Dying to Be Me: My Journey from Cancer, to Near Death, to True Healing

By Anita Moorjani

Book cover of Dying to Be Me: My Journey from Cancer, to Near Death, to True Healing

Why this book?

This book changed my life in every way. Anita’s near-death experience was so personal and profound, it stayed with me. I’ve found myself listening to the audible many times, even jumping around to different chapters that resonate more. Death is unavoidable. It’s the one truth that unites all humans - we all come to this planet the same way, and we’re all going to leave at some point, it’s just a matter of how we choose to live our life here on this earth. Anita really teaches you that love is the only answer.

Why this book?

This book… oh, this book makes me so happy. I was given this to read by a good friend many years ago and it’s one that I recommend to everyone who’s on a soul-searching journey. Whether or not you believe in past lives, reincarnation, or karmic destiny, Weiss’ honest take as a highly reputable psychiatrist is one that will touch you and make you think. It’s a book that really makes you understand that we are all connected and this world is one giant tapestry.

A Kingdom of Dreams

By Judith McNaught

Book cover of A Kingdom of Dreams

Why this book?

She is the queen of historical romance for a reason. I will never forget reading this book as a teen, and I don’t know how many times I’ve read this as an adult. It has everything you can want - adventure, a crazy kind of love, an alpha male who is hot as hell, and of course, an innocent virgin. It’s a book that made me want to be a romance novelist. I bow to Judith McNaught for life.
