4 Books Every Single Woman Should Read

When you're single for a while, it can kind of be discouraging. Even if it's just after a break-up, being single can sometimes be hard. Every now and then, we need something to make us feeling good about being single, no matter how old we are.

These 4 books have shook me to the core and shook me again. They have given me a fresher look at my life and what I want out of it.

1. The Single Woman: Life, Love, and a Dash of Sass by Mandy Hale
This book is a great testament that you don't have to feel bad about being single - you can celebrate it! With plenty of wisdom, humor, and thought-provoking ideas. This book actually helped me embrace my singleness and the idea that I don't need to settle just because everyone else is in a relationship or getting married.

2. Truth, Lies, and the Single Woman: Dispelling 10 Common Myths by Allison K. Flexer
Have you ever thought "God has forgotten about me." because you've been single for a while? I know I have and more often than I'd like to mention. Truth, Lies, and the Single Woman (written in a Christian view) helps you realize that God hasn't forgotten you but instead put on this path for a specific reason. When reading this, I felt like the author knew exactly what I was going through and feeling. NOTE: This is a Christian book so it may not be for all singles.

3. Bossypants by Tina Fey
I absolutely loved Bossypants! Tina Fey, who is one of my favorite comediennes, shows us her true funny self in her autobiography. Aside from being extremely funny, she is a strong woman in the prime of her lifetime! While this book won't help you "celebrate being single", it's great to have a few books about strong women when you are feeling low. (Not to mention that it's just a wonderful book!)

4. I've Never Been to Vegas, but My Luggage Has: Mishaps and Miracles on the Road to Happily Ever After by Mandy Hale
Yes, it's another book by Ms. Hale, but this time, this is a book every woman should read! It's full of funny anecdotes, pieces of truth, and experiences that most women can relate to. I found myself smiling, laughing, or nodding through out the entire book. Rarely do I ever come across a book I can almost completely relate to - and this one was it!

Whether you get anything out of the books or not, they are wonderful reads and a great way to celebrate being a strong independent single woman without the need to wallow in self-pity.

What books would you add to the list?
