Book 1: Girl, Wash Your Face by Rachel Hollis

This book is a self-help book tailored to helping women overcome the common negative beliefs we may have about ourselves.

"Have you ever believed that you aren't good enough? That you're not thin enough? That you're unlovable? That you're a bad mom? Have you ever believed that you deserve to be treated badly? That you'll never amount to anything? All lies." --from Girl, Wash Your Face by Rachel Hollis

Book 2: Year of Yes by Shonda Rhimes

Some may know Shonda Rhimes as the creator of the TV show "Grey's Anatomy" but she is also an author. Her book details her journey from being an introvert to finding her way as a socialite by saying "yes" to anything for a full year. That may seem daunting, and something you would never try. But, Rhimes goes over how she was able to face her fears and start loving herself through her experiment of saying "yes."

"I think a lot of people dream. And while they are busy dreaming, the really happy people, the really successful people, the really interesting, powerful, engaged people are busy doing." --from Year of Yes by Shonda Rhimes.

Book 3: I am That Girl by Alexis Jones

In this book, the overall message is to "speak your truth, discover your purpose, and be that girl." Throughout the book, Jones features many successful, inspiring women on their journeys to finding their purpose and voice to show readers that everyone starts on the same level and needs to grow. She pushes readers to find the same level of self-acceptance as the successful women mentioned by methods of self-care habits. The book covers various issues that women go through at different points in their lives. Jones has a great way with words to help anyone find their self-confidence. 

"You are so much more valuable to everyone around you and to the world if you begin every day knowing exactly who you are and try to be the best, brightest version of yourself." --from I Am That Girl by Alexis Jones
