Here’s Your Weekend Reading List, In Honor of World Book Day

04.23.2021 — The Frenshe Editors

Here at Frenshe we’re big readers. With World Book Day being in full force, our team put together a list of some must-have books that we haven’t put down or refuse to take off our bookshelves. From books on self-discovery to spirituality and more, here’s a weekend reading list we put together in honor of the holiday. Enjoy!

What a Time to Be Alone

In What a Time to Be Alone, Chidera Eggerue writes from the view of The Slumflower, who is your life guru, confidant, and friend. For the past year, being alone has been a common theme, but this book reminds us that it’s perfectly okay to be alone. It’s taboo, particularly for women, to enjoy being alone and in their own company, and this book reminds the reader that at the end of the day the only person who will always be there for you is you. The three-part approach of sass, wisdom, and charm is all you need to be alone and live your best life.

The Power of Now

The Power of Now has been translated into over 30 languages due to its large following and influence among readers. For those who are into spirituality or embarking on a spiritual journey, this book dives in to explore those parts that reveal our deepest selves. Believe it or not, some people just need a little extra push to achieve the growth they desire and this book shows readers how to do just that.

Body Love

Frenshe readers already know, Ashley loves a Kelly LeVeque smoothie recipe. The health and wellness consultant’s book, Body Love, shows readers how to live in balance and free themselves from food drama forever. People are so hard on themselves, especially when it comes to health, diet, and wellness. This book explores how to enjoy your wellness journey and not deprive yourself along the way.

Do Less

Do you have a hard time saying no? When was the last time you took some “me time? A lot of women wouldn’t have positive responses to either of these questions and Do Less strives to help you do exactly that. Being an ambitious woman shouldn’t come with a catch, and with a little bit of time management and energy balancing, there are in fact ways for us to do less and enjoy it.

The Mind-Gut Connection

You’ve probably heard this a million times—our gut is connected to everything. Well, have you wanted to learn more about the mind-gut connection? The way we treat our gut and overall health can affect our moods, the choices we make, and everything in between. The mind and digestive system are interconnected, and it’s important to know why you feel the way that you feel. Mind-Gut connection explores the topic and gives readers insight into why the microbiome is so important.

The Universe Has Your Back

This is another great read for those who are spiritual and seek to connect more with the universe. Gabby Bernstein teaches readers how to transform fear into faith and live a divinely guided life. A lot of us don’t realize that we have many blockages in the way of us getting what we want in life. These can block us from being emotionally intuitive, open in relationships, and fully confident. If you’re seeking more certainty and freedom, this one’s for you.

You Are a Badass

Stop doubting your greatness—literally. You Are a Badass helps readers kick that imposter syndrome right out the door. Most of the time what prevents us from living our best lives is ourselves and our own limiting beliefs. On the other hand, it’s not always easy to get rid of those fears entirely, but this book helps guide you in the right direction. The context helps you target those self-sabotaging beliefs and behaviors that stop you from being your best self.
