10 BOSS GIRL BOOKS I PLAN TO READ IN 2019 SO FAR

In 2019, one thing I want to do is read more books. I haven’t really made that a priority in the past. I’ve always seen the importance of reading. Yet, being in school and reading textbooks for the past (almost) 4 years, it has been hard to make time for reading just for fun. Not to mention that I used to despise reading when I was younger.

I felt like there was so much reading necessary for school and years and years of schooling that I just didn’t want to put in the extra effort. Since then, I realized that reading is important. I also enjoy learning. And I’ve realized that there is just SO MUCH knowledge that can be obtained through reading. So I’ve learned to get excited about books and reading now that I’m older.

Besides that, reading is useful because it helps our minds slow down. It helps quiet our mind and put our focus just on the words on the page, not the one hundred chores that are probably waiting for us. Mindfulness works in similar ways. I’ve talked more about mindfulness here: Benefits of Mindfulness.

I thought it would be fun to put together a list of books by women authors, women authors who are killing it! I want to aspire to be many of these women (becoming an entrepreneur or a boss/a higher up) so who better to learn from than them.

Here are 10 boss girl books on my list to read this year:

1. Playing Big by Tara Mohr

2. She Means Business: Turn Your Ideas Into Reality and Become a Wildly Successful Entrepreneur by Carrie Green

3. Make It Happen: Surrender Your Fear. Take the Leap. Live On Purpose. by Lara Casey

4. Get Over Your Damn Self: The No-BS Blueprint to Building a Life-Changing Business by Romi Neustadt

5. Girl, Stop Apologizing by Rachel Hollis

6. You Are a Badass: How to Stop Doubting Your Greatness and Start Living an Awesome Life by Jen Sincero

7. The 5 Second Rule: Transform your Life, Work, and Confidence with Everyday Courage by Mel Robbins

8. The Myth of the Nice Girl: Achieving a Career You Love Without Becoming a Person You Hate (Only on Audible) by Fran Hauser & Jodi Lipper

9. Dare to Lead: Brave Work. Tough Conversations. Whole Hearts. by Brené Brown

10. Lean In:  Women, Work, and the Will to Lead by Sheryl Sandberg

All of these books I’ve listed are written by boss girls. None of the books above have male authors. I wanted to focus on putting some time into reading books by women, wives and mothers, just like me. Getting the perspective of people in similar situations can be useful to me I think!

I plan to write reviews on some of these books at least. Whichever books either stand out to me as SO good and necessary to read, then you can expect a review from me on it. On the other hand, if there are any books I read that I feel are downright terrible, then you can also expect a review from me. Any of the books that are just “meh” and the information seems like common sense, then I will probably skip putting in the time to write a book review. I have other books besides these on my list to read this year, books from other topics. So I probably won’t waste time writing a review on every book on this list.

    I love this list! Between books and podcasts, I try to stay up to date with trends and best practices. Thanks for sharing!

    1. Kate @ Kate These Days Author

      Thank you!

      Yes! Those are both great resources for staying on top of trends. I need to incorporate podcasts into my day also… I will have to look into some podcasts to listen to.

      I agree Wendy! Reading books by entrepreneurs helps give me courage also.

    Jen Sincero’s books are amazing! Haven’t read Rachel Hollis’s new book though. I’m sure it’s right up there with her other book. Great suggestions!

      That’s good to hear! I haven’t read any of Jen Sincero’s books yet! Rachel Hollis’ new book comes out in March I think! Looking forward to that one.

    Thank you for this awesome list! It’s my goal for this year to read more. I’m going to start with “Girl, Stop Apologizing.” Great blog!

      It’s my goal as well. I think it’s a really great goal that will help expand my knowledge on a lot of topics. Keep in mind that book won’t be released until March 😉 Just wanted to make sure you knew! You can preorder it right now though.
