34 Self Love Books to Level Up Your Confidence and Library

I’ve told you all before that I’m a book nerd.  Since it’s Self Love February I thought I share some self love books that are meant to help you cultivate the best relationship with yourself possible.

Some of you are probably looking at the screen like what? “Self help?? Hard pass. I’m not into that”. I used to think the same way. Hear me out for a second.

As we know self love isn’t easy and it’s a constant revolution. Thankfully there are life coaches and best selling authors who dropped a few breadcrumbs to teach you how to relax, practice self care or create a positive mindset.

Here are some self love books should help you on your journey.

There is a mix of books in here. Some are more autobiographical like Girl Wash Your Face. Others are journals like Start Where You Are. Every writing style isn’t for everyone. So just because you pick up one and it doesn’t resonate mean you dump the entire genre away. Find one that works for you.  

I’ve already read a few of these (the ones in bold) but I’m hoping to make it through this entire list-  eventually.

Have you read any of these?
