Recommended Reading List - Forde on Fire

Hi friends!

I hope you are enjoying the cozy vibes of winter and getting ready to start 2020 off feeling healthy and energized!

Reading (and/or listening to) inspiring books is one of my favorite ways to nourish my mind. See below for my recommended reading list which contains the books that have supported me in transforming my health and life.

I’m always on the lookout for great books. Do you have a favorite that isn’t on this list?? I’d love to hear about it — shoot me an email or DM on insta!

My Favorites

Best of the best right here. 

Dare To Lead by Brene Brown

(Let’s be honest, every book by Brene Brown is my favorite — and — there is something extra special about this one.

I loved working through the accompanying resources available on her website (especially the guiding values exercise!!).

I HIGHLY recommend Brene’s audio books (read by her). If you don’t yet know her, check out her TED talk or Netflix special.


Big Magic by Elizabeth Gilbert

This one was a game-changer for me. 

Living a creative life is no joke. I find the brilliant way that Liz addresses working with the forces of inspiration and dealing with fear to be so helpful.


Books For Cultivating Inner Peace

My top pics for soothing the spirit.

The Untethered Soul by Michael Singer

One of my all time favs and top recs.

My favorite concept from this book is to just open when you are tempted to close your heart. Just open instead — it’s revolutionary.

Loving What Is by Byron Katie

This book changes everything.

I listened to the audio book read by the author — and really enjoyed her voice. Top takeaway: our thoughts are always the cause of our suffering.


The Seat Of The Soul by Gary Zukav

This book was life-changing for Oprah. Oprah!

I read this becuase Oprah said so and found it to be jam packed with all kinds of cosmic wisdom.


Books For Manifesting Magic

These books have helped me turn into a legit conjuring sorceress.

You Are A Badass by Jen Sincero

Probably my most frequently recommended read.

This book is basically an overview of all the old-timey self-help books synthesized in a modern and relatable context. Plus, the author is hilarious.


The Game Of Life And How To Play It by Florence Scovel Shinn

The OG magic manual.

Published in 1925, this quick and easy read is humorous and practical. The examples are a little outdatted but the metaphysical concepts are solid.


The Big Leap by Gay Hendricks

A must read for all visionaries and change makers.

I got SO much out of this book — most impactful was the realization that I have unconscious “upper limits” on the amount of love, success, abundance etc that I think I’m allowed to have. This book will help you recognize patterns of self-sabotage and give you tools for transcending them.


Moving Memoirs

Our stories are healing — especially these ones.

When Breath Becomes Air by Paul Kalanithi

All the feels.

This is the truly eloquent account of Dr. Paul Kalanithi’s journey with lung cancer, finished by his wife, Lucy, after his death. It’s one of the most moving and heartfelt pieces I’ve ever read. EVER.

In The Body Of The World by Eve Ensler

This booked forever changed my perspective of cancer.

Full of striking metaphors and brilliant life wisdom, this is a book that I have re-read more than once.


Initiated by Amanda Yates Garcia

Had to sneak a witchy book in here 😉

I haven’t finished this yet but already love it. A book about Goddess energy, alchemizing life’s challenges into power and the feminine uprising? Yes please.


I hope you enjoy these books as much as I have. If you decide to read any — let me know what you think!
