It’s almost fall, but I can’t help but be absorbed in some summer must-reads. From new inspirational books to drama-filled novels, there’s something here for everyone.
- Everything Is Figureoutable by Marie Forleo: Using her own coined phrase, Marie Forleo turned her use of “figureoutable” into an entire movement of the last few years. If you haven’t tuned into her YouTube channel or accompanying podcast then you’re doing yourself a disservice. Whenever I felt out of control or stuck in a vortex of negativity, I picked up this book and instantly felt my mood shift.
- Living with Color: Inspiration and How-Tos to Brighten Up Your Home by Rebecca Atwood: Designer Rebecca Atwood is back, and more colorful than ever with what she does best: inspiration. This book not only goes into the details of nailing beautiful interior style, but she also goes into great detail on the basics, so just about anyone with an interest in interior design can make sense of transforming a house into a home.
- The Beautiful No: And Other Tales of Trial, Transcendence, and Transformation by Sheri Salata: You may recognize the name Sheri Salata from a little TV show called “The Oprah Winfrey Show.” As a producer, Sheri went through a lot of different makeover scenarios, but this book takes us through her own personal makeover. On the outside, her life seemed perfect, but she uses this book to show us what really matters in life, and how success can mean many different things.
- Super Attractor: Methods for Manifesting a Life Beyond Your Wildest Dreams by Gabrielle Bernstein: I’ve read all of Gabrielle Bernstein’s previous books, so when I heard that she was releasing another inspirational book, I was ready for more. This one focuses on claiming your own desires, and it came at the best time when I really needed to look toward something positive. It’s all about not looking back, and focusing on what’s ahead of you.
- Make It Happen by Jordanna Levin: I’ve been spending a lot of my time toying with the idea of manifestation, and I have to say, I’ve had nothing but positive results. Jordanna melds humor with wisdom to help you understand the concept of manifestation, and how you can use it in your life.
- Trick Mirror: Reflections on Self-Delusion by Jia Tolentino: When Zadie Smith calls your book inspiring, you know you’ve made it. Jia Tolentino is definitely an It-girl at the moment, thanks to her collection of essays. Jia has no problem getting completely honest through a powerful collection of serious and humorous thoughts.
- Montauk by Nicola Harrison: Despite this taking place in 1938, Montauk has filled the void that one of my favorite TV shows, “The Affair,” had left behind. Of course, Nicola paints a beautiful seaside summer in Montauk that you can only dream of, and adds in all of the drama and suspense that you desire. Get to the beach and read this under the sun before it gets too cold.
- Find Your Artistic Voice: The Essential Guide to Working Your Creative Magic by Lisa Congdon: Remember when we ran our home tour with this glorious artist? Lisa was in the midst of releasing this book, and just as we imagined, it was inspiring to say the least. Creativity can mean many things, and Lisa interviews various artists to show us that there are many different forms of creatives.
