1. It’s Not OK: Turning Heartbreak into Happily Never After by Andi Dorfman

This book is so amazing that I read it twice. Andi was on the ABC show “The Bachelor” and then became “The Bachelorette.” This book is basically her personal journal detailing her account of her very bad and very public breakup with the man she became engaged to at the end of her show. But, it didn’t end up working out. She stays at her best friend’s house as she recovers from her 9-month engagement, trying to find herself again, she decides to move her life from Atlanta to New York City. It’s very heartwarming and humorous.

2. Single State of Mind by Andi Dorfman

This is Andi’s second book that just came out this January. I’m currently reading it and I swear it’s even better than the first one. This is another journal account as she starts her new single life in New York City, detailing how she gets back into the dating world. From the traveling adventures with her friends to her juicy dating life, this book is very entertaining. A perfect beach read.

3. You Are A Badass by Jen Sincero

If you’re feeling stuck in a rut or uninspired lately, this book will help you realize how awesome you really are and how to use your strengths to make the best life for yourself.

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

Manson is a popular blogger who sheds light on the fact that not everything in life is going to be positive and happy. He teaches his readers the things to care about in life and what not to, so that you can be more efficient and realistic with your expectations.

5. Adulting: How to Become a Grown-Up in 468 Easy(ish) Steps by Kelly Williams Brown

This book is chock-full of easy and effective tips for young females to use when getting out into the big bad world. Adulting is hard! And we could use all the advice we can get.

6. Eat, Pray, Love by Elizabeth Gilbert

I remember when the film came out with Julia Roberts as Gilbert. I never saw it nor have I read the book, but the story is based off of Gilbert’s decision to travel in order to find herself. This inspiring journey makes you want to take chances in life, giving you hope that everyone eventually finds their happy ending. Sounds good to me!

7. I Am Malala by Malala Yousafzai

Malala is the definition of a badass. She was shot by the Taliban for being a girl who wanted an education, yet she survived and became the youngest person to receive the Nobel Peace Prize. She is truly an inspiration for all women who believe in equal rights or want an education.
