Ann is a such a beautiful writer, it feels almost as though you’re reading poetry.She details her journey to list 1,000 things in her life to be grateful for and how that journey changed her life.It is a complete game-changer for anyone, married or single, who is looking to lead a more authentic, transparent life.No matter where we’re at in our lives, vulnerability is necessary to build the career and the relationships and the lives that we dream of. If you’re tired of settling for just breezing through life at the status quo, this book will show you how to love yourself for exactly who you are instead of who the world thinks you should be while challenging you to lead a bigger, bolder, braver life. Cindy Chupack is like sitting down to dinner with your four best girlfriends and swapping stories about your wildest and funniest dating and life fiascos until you’re all breathless with laughter.
Unhappy with how her love life is going and still single at age 40, Susan decides to call God to the carpet by taking him to “couple’s therapy.” Susan’s rocky, real, raw, HONEST relationship with God was something I could relate to immediately, as one who has never tiptoed politely around God and has had more than a few wrestling matches with him myself about life and love.I feel like so many books out there for single women only touch on one area of life, and that’s love, dating, and relationships.How can we hope to live healthy, happy, balanced lives if the only thing anyone is talking to us about is relationships?Because when you change your mindset and start to look at relationships as black and white instead of every shade in between, you cut out a lot of drama and heartache and nonsense.The honest truth is, as Greg says so succinctly in this book: It just doesn’t get any more black and white, cut and dry than that.Wildly funny and exceptionally moving, this book had me laughing hysterically one minute and crying just as hysterically the next. (that just might be popping up later on this list), but have you heard of his follow-up book?Does Susan find her Happily Ever After at the end of the book? For anyone who has ever been through a breakup (and who hasn’t? And it comes from a man, so it’s like having a built-in guy friend to be the voice of reason in your post-breakup, driving by the guy’s house, stalking his Facebook page misery.Cindy sympathizes with the often jaw-droppingly unbelievable situations in love and life that single ladies frequently find ourselves in and helps find the silver lining in even the most heinous of awkward dates or painful breakups. (Until you’ve completely forgotten about the awkward date or bad breakup.) 4.by Greg Behrendt – Over the years since this book first came out, I’ve tried to argue with it. I’ve tried to say that relationships aren’t as black and white as Greg presents them to be in this book, but you know what? The truth is, relationships ARE more black and white than they are fifty shades of gray…and that’s a good thing.With #Beautiful Unertainty, I tried to combine all the greatest elements of the storytelling from Never Been to Vegas and the quotable nuggets of truth from The Single Woman and I feel like it resulted in my best work ever.#Beautiful Uncertainty was written about a very special year in my life in which I decided to stop sitting around waiting for life to begin (as many of us singles find ourselves doing) and get out there and actually LIVE.The busy, vibrant, confident single woman has many, many other stories to tell!As I say in the book, the REAL fairytale is designing a life that’s so amazing, you don’t want to be rescued from it. , by Mandy Hale – My latest book and the one I’m most proud of and most excited for you to read.So many of us hide behind walls of shame and self doubt and fear, we never allow anyone to get close enough to us to see the real us, and this book is all about tearing down those walls to walk in the freedom of Just. Anytime I need a little pick-me-up in my single girl walk, I reach for my very worn copy of this book.
