Our Favorite Books of 2015

books of 2015


We do a lot of reading over here at Bloguettes, but what we find most meaningful about the books we choose is their ability to pass on helpful information to our readers! If you got a chance to read some of these books in 2015, we’d love to hear what you thought about them! But if you didn’t, here’s another recap a some of our favorites and how they can help you be the best creative genius and #girlboss in 2016. 

Creative Confidence


While Creative Confidence heavily focuses on helping people who wouldn’t necessarily consider themselves creative, there’s something for those on the other side of the creative spectrum, too! This book will inspire you to think differently, ask more questions, and suggest better ideas!

Leave Your Mark


Like us, you’ll totally end up falling head over heels with the life & career lessons found in Leave Your Mark by Aliza Licht. The book details how Licht earned her success and everything (we mean, EVERYTHING!) she did, thought, and said in order to get to where she is today.

StrengthsFinder 2.0


StrengthsFinder 2.0 is a must-have book (and assessment!) for those of you searching for career or business advice, self-help, or a confidence boost! The book has you take a quick online quiz and uses your results to determine your top five strengths and how you can use them to your advantage!

Blog Inc.


What’s the most important thing when starting your own blog? Well, according to author of Blog Inc. (and the owner of Oh Joy) Joy Cho, it’s finding your blog’s voice and being consistent with it. The book delves into much more detail regarding all parts of blogging, and is great for beginners and pros alike.
