I draw a lot of inspiration from books and authors. I love everything from novels and lifestyle books to nonfiction and advice books. And since becoming an author, I’m always on the hunt for new and exciting titles!
So I put together this reading list for the fall season. Some of these I’ve read and totally recommend to you guys, while others are books I’ve been dying to check out.
A Short Guide to a Happy Life by Anna Quindlen
I recently read this and was totally inspired! Quindlen talks about what it takes to truly grab hold of your own unique life and self, and live each and every day to the fullest. Her advice is honest and extremely motivational and I definitely recommend this guide to everybody!
Gone Girl by Gillian Flynn
I’ve seen this title on Oprah’s book club, the NY Times Best Sellers list and countless others, so it’s definitely on my list this season. Flynn’s thriller novel is about a marriage gone terribly wrong when the bride mysteriously disappears before the ceremony.
The Great Gatsby by F. Scott Fitzgerald
This is one of my all time favorite novels! Since the new Gatsby movie came out, I’ve wanted to re-read Fitzgerald and revisit what I love so much about his romantic story telling. Such a complex and beautiful portrayal of relationships and society.
I’m obsessed with Daphne’s new lifestyle book. I love that it covers everything from cooking, to hair and makeup tricks, to relationship and career advice, to a great fashion guide, and much more! Read my full book review here.
Wild: From Lost to Found on the Pacific Crest Trail by Cheryl Strayed
Cheryl Strayed hiked more than a thousand miles on the west coast Pacific Crest Trail all by herself and wrote about her experiences in Wild. Her journey as a strong woman overcoming odds and motivated by sheer will is truly aspiring. I can’t wait to read this!
First Sight: A Novel by Danielle Steel
This was my first Danielle Steel book and it was amazing! I got to meet her earlier this month when I guest co-hosted The View and she was so intelligent and inspiring! First Sight is a romantic tale about a fashion designer in some of the most beautiful cities on earth. Absolute love!
