Best Life Book Club


Reading the inspiring and life-changing works of others has been—and still is—an essential part of my self-discovery journey. I share a lot of what I’ve learned through reading the wisdom of others and putting it into practice in my daily life right here on Happy As Annie. But if you like books on personal development, positive psychology, and spirituality as much as I do, then Best Life Book Club is a place where we can connect even more.

Best Life Book Club is an online community of bold, creative, and ambitious book-lovers who dream big and are ready to start living their best life!

If you love reading books that not only inspire you but offer practical guidance on how to live more intentionally, love more deeply, take better care of yourself, and stop letting your own self-doubt or the fear of others’ judgment get in the way of your dreams, this is the book club you’ve been waiting for.

My mission is to select inspiring and empowering books, curate weekly and monthly reading plans, lead online conversations with a vibrant community of women who are also on a path of self-discovery and self-empowerment, and offer tips, support, and some laughs along the way.

And if you’re like me, the only thing better than reading a life-changing book is having a community of like-minded women reading along with you to hear your thoughts, share their experiences, and encourage you to put what we’re reading into action.

What are you waiting for? Pull up a chair and start living your best life!
