Give the gift of empowerment this holiday season.
With the year coming to an end, it’s the perfect time to gift someone or yourself a book this holiday season that will inspire and empower the reader to love themselves inside and out. New year, same beautiful you! That’s what we believe at PMM.
Here’s 5 books that we’re currently reading at the PMM offices and think would make the perfect gifts this year:
Tovar’s latest book is her call to action to plus size/fat women to love themselves and embrace their bodies. It’s a manifesto for body freedom and freeing yourself from diet culture and body image ideals. Buy it here.
#2: A Life Full of Glitter: A Guide to Positive Thinking, Self-Acceptance, and Finding Your Sparkle in a (Sometimes) Negative World by Anna O’Brien
Instagram star and influencer Anna O’Brien, aka Glitter + Lazers, offers her advice to positive thinking presented through relevant research, storytelling, and plenty of humor. Buy it here.
#3: Landwhale: On Turning Insults Into Nicknames, Why Body Image Is Hard, and How Diets Can Kiss My Ass by Jess Baker
Baker is back with Landwhale, a memoir of her experiences as a fat girl and how she navigated her life in a world where fat phobia and bias is still very prevalent. If it’s anything like her first book, Things No One Will Tell Fat Girls, this one’s a must-read. Buy it here.
The cover says it all… MUST READ! World-renowned activist and poet Sonya Renee Taylor really drops a major word in this book where she offers radical self-love as the balm to heal the wounds inflicted by negative experiences. This book is about celebrating your strengths and tapping into our inner selves in order to radically love ourselves. Buy it here.
This is a book you should always carry with you, flip to a page, read and reflect. Molinary’s book is THAT guide that has many gems for women to regain a healthy body image, be more self-aware and build their confidence. Buy it here.
