We are feeling the love this month and want to share with you some favorites straight from Team BCB. Did you see our Top Beauty Picks round-up last week? This week we’re sharing our favorite books for all of you book worms. Whether you like to sneak in a quick read before bed or prefer beach reads on vacation, we have a book recommendation for you! What’s your favorite book? Comment below and let us know!
Robin, BCB Austin Market Leader: All of Chelsea Handler’s books! She’s hysterical and always honest. I’ve been to a few tapings when she was still filming “Chelsea Lately” and had her autograph my books. I get them out when I just need to destress and have a good laugh.
Abbe, BCB Director of Events: Does People magazine count as a book? I love it – I have since I was in middle school. I don’t believe celeb news unless I’ve read it in People.
Lorin,BCB LA Market Leader: The Happiest Baby on the Block, because well, obvi it saved us on many sleepless nights and helped us get through so many challenging moments as new (and seasoned) parents. I plan to dust it off and break it back out for baby #3! AND Fifty ShadesTrilogy. Yep, I said it! I found the story engaging and it whisked me away to another world, as any good book should. I laugh now about the baby onesies I saw shortly after the book came out..”9 months ago my mom read 50 Shades of Grey.” 😉
Jill,BCB Chicago Market Leader: Valley of the Dolls: It’s one of my favorite easy reads, partly because it’s a scandalous story, and because of its history. The characters are inspired by Marylin Monroe, Judy Garland, and Grace Kelly, and I love the movie adaptation from the 1960s.
Christina, BCB National Market Leader: Girl, Wash Your Face. Rachel Hollis is fearless and this book is all about showing you how to be fearless as well. We can often hide behind misconceptions, but Girl, Wash Your Face jovially points out how these are simply little lies we tell ourselves and gives pointers on how to live productive and happy lives.
Nicole L, BCB Denver Market Leader: Eleanor Oliphant Is Completely Fine.Too hard to narrow down one favorite book, but this is one of the more entertaining ones I’ve read recently. I absolutely adored Eleanor’s quirky personality and major lack of filter – uplifting and just my speed after a long day!
Bree, BCB Tampa Market Leader: Lies Moms Believe and How the Gospel Refutes Them. This book challenges the ideas of perfection in parenting and grounds me back to the truth of God’s Grace. Motherhood is messy and sometimes we’re a little too hard on ourselves. This book reminds me that it’s okay to be imperfect!
Rebeca, BCB National Market Leader Manager: To Kill a Mockingbird– Everyone need to read this book that teaches the importance of kindness, what can be gained by seeing past first impressions and looks and why we should all stand up for those that can’t stand up for themselves. Let’s raise up more people like Atticus Finch!
Lindsay F, BCB Director of Sponsorships:The Middle Place by Kelly Corrigan. I have read this book twice…once before I became a mom and once after I had kids. It’s a beautiful memoir about being in “the middle” which is the sliver of time when parenthood and childhood overlap. Kelly Corrigan is a beautiful writer and captures motherhood with her words so perfectly.
Katie, BCB Director of Business Development + Special Events: Recently read Inheritance and found it super interesting. It is a memoir about a woman who did a genetics test and found out her Dad was not her biological father 20 years after he passed away. Hard to say what my favorite book is though.
Catherine, BCB LA Market Leader: Recently loved The Nightingale – so interesting to learn what a critical role women played in WW2. This is a serious page turner!
Emily, BCB Digital Content Manager: My all time favorite book is A Prayer for Owen Meany by John Irving. The story is quirky and uplifting & I couldn’t put it down when I first read it. Otherwise, I’m always drawn to suspense and mystery books!
Jacqueline, BCB Chicago Western Burbs Market Leader: Another nod for Girl Wash Your Face by Rachel Hollis. I love this book because it’s a mix of motivational quotes, bible verses, and common sense girl talk. It’s an easy read that will help you discover who you’re meant to be!
