Hey, all you single ladies, it's time to stop feeling bad for yourselves on Valentine's Day and every day beyond, and start celebrating your awesomeness. Step one: grabbing some awesome books that celebrate being single. It can be hard to watch seemingly everyone pairing up around you, especially during "the most romantic day of the year" and the extensive build-up leading to it. You can't walk into a drug store without being bombarded with sickly sweet red and pink everything, and every network seems to play their most romantic sitcom episodes.
But it's time we've all admitted to this fact: there is nothing wrong with being single! Whether you're holding out for a deeper connection, are focusing on your career, or just want to spend more of your time being free to do exactly as you please, more and more women are choosing to remain single for extended periods of time. So, as an antidote to all of the coupled-up posts you'll be seeing around for the next couple of weeks, we've compiled a list of reads that reaffirm, inspire, and celebrate the single gal. Grab one for yourself, your group of Galentine's or a single friend in need of a pick-me-up. Once you're done with these, you'll feel unstoppable and singly amazing.
