I feel like 2017 was a good year in terms of reading.

It was also a year of growth and lots of new experiences (both good and bad, but mostly bad), so I felt like I needed some help -or at least some answers-. Something to show me what path I should follow from there on.

As a bookworm that I am, I recurred to books.

PS: never underestimate the power of a good book.

I’ve always felt that reading about others experiences in life is the most inspiring thing ever. So that is basically what I did to understand what was happening in mine and find hope.

These are the 5 books that mostly helped me in my journey. And I think every girl should read them at some point in her life.

5 Books Every Girl Should Read

This book is basically a life guide for all those teenagers who aren’t teenagers anymore and feel lost in their way to adulthood.

Becoming an adult is hard, actually real life is hard! That’s why in this book Arden empathizes with all those of us who are almost adulting but still don’t fit in the “adult world”. Basically, she gives you the advice no one gave you before! And she also talks about tough experiences in her life, as well as the good ones (like how she met her actual boyfriend).

I came across Arden’s book thanks to her Youtube video. I was so relieved after watching it, because it literally felt like the video was talking about me. So reading the book I felt exactly the same.


If you want a motivation boost, you must read Girlboss by Sophia Amoruso, the girl behind Nasty Gal.

After droping out of high school and being fired from many jobs, she decided to start selling vintage clothes on Ebay. Many years later, she’s the founder and CEO of one of the biggest fashion online stores. Oh, and she’s also a multimillionaire.

If you need some career advice, in her book Sophia tells you the tricks and tips you must know in order to find your path to success.

The most important thing I learned from this book?

Work hard for your dreams and follow your instincts.


Rachel, or the girl on the train, catches the same train every morning. She loves to look at the gardens and big houses that surround the train tracks. But above everything, she loves to fantasize about the lives of those who live there -their lives look perfect compared to hers-.

Everything changes when she sees something she should have never seen.

This book isn’t about life advice, but it is one of the most intriguing stories I’ve ever read. If you haven’t seen the movie yet, I highly recommend reading the book first.


To be honest, I’ve always been a little hesitant when it comes to poetry, basically because It’s hard for me to understand it! But with this book things were completely different.

Amanda Lovelace uses her book to show all the different stages she’s gone through in her life till becoming the strong and independent woman that she is today.

Love, loss, empowerment and inspiration are some of the topics you can read about in this fantastic book.

I loves that it was so easy to read and I could feel identified with most of the things she wrote about. So I really recommend this book if you like inspiring and empowering stories about real women.


Last but not least, one of my favorite poetry books.

Milk and Honey is one of those books you have to read at least once in your life. The author explores some of the most difficult experiences in her life and how she healed the pain caused by them.

Violence, abuse, love or feminity are just a few of all the topics she goes through.

Modern poetry + life advice. Is there anything better?

I really recommend this book if you are going through a hard moment in your life because the most important thing I learned about it is that you can find swetness even in the most bitter moments.



I really hope you can find the answers you need in these books, just like I did. Personally, I felt like I was healing by going through all these stories told by amazing woman. Please, let me know if you read (or have read) some of them!

As I am a lifestyle blogger, I also like to give my little piece of advice to other people. Here are some of my “life advice” posts:
