I’ve always felt that reading about others’ experiences in life is the most inspiring thing ever. It helps me to put my own problems in perspective and analyze them from a new and different point of view. That is basically what I do every time I feel lost or I enter a bad phase in my life.
I try to find a solution by reading the words of someone with more experience than me or someone I trust.
If you are a bookworm like me, and you never underestimate the power of a good book, you’ve come to the right place! Today I’m sharing with you the 4 books every girl should read.
These 4 books that have been by my side along the way, and I think every girl should read them at some point in her life.
4 BOOKS EVERY GIRL SHOULD READ
Almost Adulting by Arden Rose
Almost Adulting is basically a life guide for young millennials who feel lost in their way to adulthood (AKA me).
Becoming an adult is hard. Actually, life is hard! That’s why in her book Arden empathizes with all of us who are almost adults but still don’t fit in the “adult world”. To be honest, she gives you the advice no one gave you before! She talks about her journey to adulthood and tough experiences in her life, as well as the good ones (such as 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 finally felt like I could relate to someone. Reading her book made me feel like I’m not alone because there are people out there who have been through similar experiences and understand how I feel.
#Girlboss by Sophia Amoruso
If you want a motivation boost, you must read Girlboss by Sophia Amoruso. Sophia is the girl behind Nasty Gal, a well-known six-figure fashion company.
After dropping 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’re looking for career advice, this is for you. In her book, Sophia tells you the tricks and tips that led her to success and how anyone can achieve their goals with passion and hard work.
The most important thing I learned from this book? Work hard for your dreams and follow your instincts.
The Princess Saves Herself In This One by Amanda Lovelace
To be honest, I’ve always been a bit hesitant when it comes to poetry, but with this book, things were completely different!
I really connected with Amanda’s story because it felt so relatable as a woman.
Her book is a journey through the different phases she’s gone through in her life until becoming the strong and independent woman she is today.
Love, loss, empowerment, and inspiration are some of the topics you’ll read about in The Princess Saves Herself in This One.
This book is a form of sorority. I really recommend it if you like to read inspiring and empowering stories about real women. Especially if you’re going through a hard time in your life and you need someone to look up to.
Milk and Honey by Rupi Kaur
Milk and Honey is one of those books you must read at least once in your life. Rupi talks about some of the most difficult experiences in her life and how she dealt with them. Healing is a process that takes time, but you can definitely learn from the pain.
She shares her experiences with violence and abuse, but she also dives in topics like love and feminity. The most important thing I learned is that you can find sweetness even in the most bitter stories.
This book is the perfect combination of modern poetry and life advice. I highly recommend it if you’re into non-fiction stories but you’re looking for something different. I promise it won’t deceive you.
All these books have helped me at some point in my life. Even though they’re all about other women’s stories, I really resonate with them. All these incredible women open up about their lives and journeys and share their pieces of advice. Personally, I think that’s the most helpful thing you can do to someone else.
I really hope you can find the answers you’re looking for in these books, just like I did. Personally, I find them all so inspiring and motivating. Please let me know if you read (or have read) any of these books.
As a college lifestyle blogger, I also like to give my little piece of advice to other young women. Here are some of my life advice posts:
