There's an age-old stereotype that self-help books are for the lonely and the miserable. Well, I couldn’t be happier that this kind of thinking is now incredibly outdated. It feels like there are more books out there than ever written by strong, opinionated, informed women whose work aims to help readers be the best possible versions of themselves. There is nothing I love more than settling down for a little #SelfLoveSunday with a cup of tea and awesome book by an inspiring writer. If you're in need of a little TLC, here are the five best self-love books. Because working on yourself is nothing to be ashamed of, and the most important relationship you will ever have is with yourself.
Whether you're in need of a pep talk, advice on how to get to the next level at work or with a partner, or a little push to go outside and exercise, these books have got you covered. It isn’t easy being on top of your game all of the time, and sometimes you need a little time to take in some serious wisdom and refresh. The one thing that all of these books have in common is that reading them is like having one of your best (and most-informed) friends giving you the advice you need, right at your fingertips.
