10 Books To Read In March That Will Inspire You

International Women’s Day is March 8, and in celebration of that, we’re sharing 10 books by female authors that are filling our bookshelves this month. Whether you’re into non-fiction, romance, cooking or something in between, these books are sure to inspire.

  1. Heart Talk: Poetic Wisdom for a Better Life by Cleo Wade: We couldn’t be more excited about this book. Cleo Wade is one of our ultimate girl crushes (learn about her goals for 2018 here), and we’ve been waiting on pins and needles for the release of her book, Heart Talk. It’s packed full of mantras, poetry and daily affirmations to inspire and challenge the reader. We love the illustrations peppered throughout and could hardly put it down!
  2. Secrets for the Mad: Obsessions, Confessions, and Life Lessons by Dodie: If you’re unfamiliar with Dodie, a 22-year-old musician from London with a massive YouTube following, you’re missing out. Her debut book is quirky, adorably illustrated and everything you need when you need a pick-me-up.
  3. The Opposite of Hate: A Field Guide to Repairing Our Humanity by Sally Kohn: There’s no doubt that we’re in a state of turmoil. This book by CNN commentator Sally Kohn uses her travels and experience in the current climate to bridge the hate and bring humans back together again.
  4. Simply Vibrant: All-Day Vegetarian Recipes for Colorful Plant-Based Cooking by Anya Kassoff: Everyday recipes that will leave you feeling vibrant and full. We love the colorful take on the food styling and how simplistic the recipes are.
  5. The Actor’s Life: A Survival Guide by Jenna Fischer: If you’re like us, you had a crazy Jim and Pam obsession. Even if you’re not pursuing a career in acting, we love this quirky and humorous real-life account from Jenna Fischer.
  6. My Floral Affair: Whimsical Spaces and Beautiful Florals by Rachel Ashwell: The queen of English rose gardens, Rachel Ashwell, has released a stunning photography book featuring florals and interiors from the English countryside to her Parisian apartment. You’ll want this on your coffee table all spring long!
  7. Eat Your Feelings: The Food Mood Girl’s Guide to Transforming Your Emotional Eating by Lindsey Smith: Don’t reach for that fifth donut! Eat Your Feelings is a new release that talks about deconstructing your cravings and separating your emotions from your nutritional needs. If you’re stressed, sad, tired, hangry, etc, this book will help you cope!
  8. This Love Story Will Self-Destruct by Leslie Cohen: We’re digging this charming story of modern romance that’s tinged with humor and reality.
  9. Girl, Wash Your Face: Stop Believing the Lies About Who You Are so You Can Become Who You Were Meant to Be by Rachel Hollis: Chic Media founder, Rachel Hollis, shares the ups and downs that led her to where she is today. Each chapter starts with a different lie she was told about life and how she figured out her own path. A great read for anyone looking to start a business or break out of their shell.
  10. The Sun is Also a Star by Nicola Yoon: Maybe it’s because Valentine’s was a few weeks ago, but we are just feeling the love with these beautiful stories. This novel by Nicola Yoon is another realistic look at young love that will leave you feeling nostalgic and a little heartbroken.
