Books Every Woman Should Read in Her 20’s

Okay, I confess, I am completely and forever book worm. You know, one of those kids that would get in trouble for reading in school. Still think it’s a bunch of BS BUUUT that is besides the point. If you don’t like reading, that just means you haven’t found a book you like yet. And if you haven’t found that book you are dying to read, I think you’re supposed to write one 😉  Here are some books that have changed my life, or the life of someone I know and love. Hope you enjoy!

If there ever was a definition of f**kin legend, it’d be this guy. It may seem like you are forever destined to work a 9-5 in whatever your field of study is.

A little bit of an eye-opener, a husband-wife team tell how women are still suffering in many parts of the world today. Don’t pass this up because of the heavy theme though, plenty of courageous and wonderful people appear throughout this non-fiction book.

“How to Make Friends and Influence People” by Dale Carnegie

Please don’t be intimidated by the title! This is not one of those books where they attack your personality or anything like that. But it does give you timeless tips on how to communicate with people which is KEY in every. single. relationship and human interaction you have.

 “The Five People You Meet in Heaven” by Mitch Ablom

Oye, this one will make you cry. Although it’s a fiction, it shows very real circumstances on how we humans effect each other without even realizing it. Not only is it extremely poetic, it’s short enough to read in a weekend (or day if you have the time).

“Bossy Pants” by Tina Fey

Even if you aren’t a Tina Fey fan (shame on you), her book will give you plenty of hilarious and genuine advice from someone who has had her ups and downs. Especially good for anyone going through a quarter life crisis 🙂

“There is no greater agony than bearing an untold story inside you.”

The world lost an extraordinary woman in 2014. I’d feel awful if I spoiled any of the novel, because it is timeless, so I’ll spare details. Her autobiography is one of the most empowering books I have ever read, and will help any woman realize her true potential.
