I love reading a good book to get me inspired. So today, I want to share 10 books for the new year! I’m not saying you should read all these books for the new year because that would be very challenging, but I am saying that reading these at some point in the coming year will definitely change your life.
These books all look at different areas of life and how it can be improved. To me, they are some of the best personal development books out there, and they should be on your reading list if you’re looking to improve yourself.
One of the best ways to read is with the Kindle unlimited app. For the price of only one book a month, you get access to millions! You can get a free trial to kindle unlimited right here, and if you’re a bookworm like me, there is no better way to save money. I know me and my house wouldn’t be able to support my reading habits if I’d had to get every book in physical copy, so this is the perfect solution!
If you’re more of an audiobook kind of person, you can also start your free trial of audible here, They’ll even send you a reminder before your 30-day trial ends, so you can cancel it on time if you want to.

Brené bolsters the self-esteem and personal development process through her characteristic heartfelt, honest storytelling.

Now more than ever, we all need to cultivate feelings of self-worth, as well as acceptance and love for ourselves.
