Well it's no secret that I love books.
I love learning, expanding my mind, seeing things from new perspectives and gaining new tools for myself and my clients to rock life with.
I am basically obsessed with self development books. Some I have read more then once, others I started reading and then picked back up months or years later, but either way, I am always reading, or listening to, a book. It makes my heart so happy and my soul so full.
So this blog has been long overdue, which means this list is going to be long as well. Even though I am recommending books in most of my MondYay Memos, it's nice to have them all in one place.
Here are some amazing books that have made an impact, shifted my perspective, taught me important lessons, inspired me or have moved me in some way.
I have also made a quick and easy way to grab these books or audios via amazon so you can kick off 2019 with a book bang!!

The Four Agreements
by Don Miguel Ruiz
A Practical Guide To Personal Freedom
This book is probably one of my most recommended books out there. "Based on ancient Toltec wisdom, The Four Agreements offer a powerful code of conduct that can rapidly transform our lives to a new experience of freedom, true happiness, and love." It is one that you should read again and again and really get the lessons engrained in your mind.
Ask and it is Given
Learning to Manifest Your Desires
This book (and basically all of their books) is a gift to anyone who reads it. It had such a profound impact on my life, the way I saw the world and myself in it, the way I connected to my inner power and inner creator... everything changed after reading this book. Come at this one with an open mind ... the messages are clear, powerful, and full of love and light. Law of Attraction vibes all the way through. There are even practices you can try depending on where you are currently at emotionally, physically and spiritually.
Braving The Wilderness
by Brene Brown
The Quest for True Belonging and the Courage to Stand Alone.
This book was so beautiful and powerful. Not only is Brene an amazing story teller, but she has clear steps to standing confidently in your truth and being your most authentic self. I love her. I reference this book so much in my own journey.
The Universe has Your Back
by Gabrielle Bernstein
Transform Fear to Faith
I finished this book in one road trip. Half the way up, and the other half on the way back. It was beautiful and powerful and inspiring.
You Are A Badass
by Jen Sincero
How to Stop Doubting Your Greatness and Start Living an Awesome Life
This book was not only hilarious, but it really strips down different self development elements and practices so it's real and it resonates. I honestly feel like when I write a book it will sound just like this.
by Gabrielle Bernstein
Release the Beliefs That Hold You Back from Living a Better Life
This book gives excellent perspective on how much judgment affects us everyday and suggests different tools and techniques to rid yourself of the weight that is holding you back from living a lighter more love filled life.
by Steven Kotler & Jamie Wheal
How Silicon Valley, the Navy SEALs and Maverick Scientists are Revolutionizing the Way We Live and Work.
I finished this book in two days. I literally could not stop reading it!! Stealing Fire explores the topic of altered states of consciousness and how they can ignite passion, fuel creativity, and accelerate problem solving. Tapping into the "flow" state and getting "into the zone" has become part of the culture inside billion dollar companies, mandatory in the world's most elite organizations and a highly sought after tool for business moguls and tech gurus.
by Elizabeth Gilbert
Creative Living Beyond Fear
This book was so inspiring to me. It also allowed me to better understand the creative process and that ideas flow just like energy. I really enjoyed this. Elizabeth Gilbert wrote Eat, Pray, Love and shares some pretty cool stories about her own creative process throughout her life.
Awaken The Giant Within
by Tony Robbins
