5 Favorite Nightstand Books

Although my kindle is great and of course very practical, I am still a sucker for a physical book- the cover, turning an actual page, plus they always make for nice decorations around the house. I have a collection of books sitting on my nightstand, some I’ve read all the way through and some are still in progress.  From business inspiration to travel stories that make you want to take off around the world, below are my top 5 favorites!


Sophia Amoruso is nothing short of a total badass. This New York Times bestseller shares the inspiring story of how she went from hitchhiking to starting one of the fastest-growing retailers in the world.

2. What I Was Doing While You Were  Breeding

I wish Kristin Newman and I could be besties in real life, or at least vacation together. I mean, we have the same first name so that’s a great start right? In this memoir Kristin shares her inspiring and hilarious jet setting tales from around the globe. Just be prepared to buy a few plane tickets after reading.

3. The 4-Hour Workweek

I first listened to this on audiobook during my long commutes to work back in the day. I loved it so much I bought the book years later and am steadily getting through my second read. The 4-Hour Workweek is a huge motivator and great resource to ditching the 9-5, living anywhere and joining the “New Rich”.

4. Eat Pray Love

A classic of course! Live vicariously through one woman’s transformational life journey across Italy, India and Indonesia. I’ve read this book and watched the movie with Julia Roberts during good times and bad times in my life and it never disappoints. 



5. Bossypants

What better way to end the list then with some much needed laughs with Tina Fey. I have brought this book on my last few plane flights and embarrassed myself plenty with laughing out loud in public.
