5 Books to Give Yourself a Self-Love Valentine

Instead of the usual Valentine’s Day round up of romance novels, I thought I’d do something a bit different: I’ve put together a list of non-fiction books that can help you show yourself some love. No matte rf you feel stuck in your job or body size, there is a book below that can bring you inspiration. Why wait for others to shower you with affection (and chocolates)?!

Besides, us avid readers know books are the ultimate gift no matter the occasion!
