As a mom, I have always struggled to find time to read. When I do read, I read to gain knowledge, improve our family’s lives, and set a good example for my kids. Here is a list of some of my favorite books that I recommend you read to improve your supermom life.
My Top Book Picks For Moms Like Me
Smart Couples Finish Rich
I have read this book a few times over the years and it is one of my personal favorites. This book isn’t for the very wealthy, its for the everyday couple. I love this book because it provokes a couple to think through their financial plans and what is most important to each of them. In this book, you will find tips and tools needed to achieve financial security in retirement, create your plan for long term care, and even credit card management.
The Body Book
Read this and learn to fall in love with your amazing body! In this book, Cameron Diaz does a great job of educating women about our bodies so that we can learn to embrace hunger rather than fear it. She talks about her journey and how she treats her body to get the most work, fun, and life out of it.
Total Money Makeover
A must-read for anyone with any debt (even a car payment or mortgage) that would love to have financial freedom! Dave includes real-life stories of families that put a laser focus on getting out of debt. This is an easy and impactful read. In fact, I believe strongly that managing your money well can lead to a better balance between your work and family.
The 5 Love Languages
I recently read this book after a tough time with my partner and it really helped. I recommend each partner taking the quiz towards the back of the book, and then reading the book. It will help you as you read to understand what you and your partner’s love languages are. It may just improve your marriage.
T Is For Transformation
A fitness star, the author shares his deepest secrets and his struggles with emotional eating. Not only did I learn about his fitness journey, but I learned a lot about having grit and how when you work at your passion, it doesn’t really work. We should all strive to do something we love.
Raising Kids for True Greatness
This book creates awareness that success looks different for everyone and it should. If we define success for them, we may be keeping them from becoming wildly successful. Read this book and help your children answer these 3 questions; what are you doing with your potential, who will they spend their lives with, and who will they live their lives for?
You Are What You Eat
Find tips on how to get rid of stomach fat, get lists of foods that heal you in different ways, read why it’s important to detox, and even what your stool says about your diet. This is a great read before starting any diet plan.
A recipe book that allows your family to eat their favorites with hidden veggies in them. I have tried a few of these and my picky eaters never knew what was in their food! One of my favorites is the Pink Pancakes!
From the creator of 21-day fix – Fixate is a cookbook with all whole food, no preservative recipes that are guaranteed to give you results. My absolute favorite in this book is Grandma’s tomato sauce. I make a batch once per week and make meatball subs, pizza, spaghetti, and even chili from the large batch of goodness!
13 Things Mentally Strong People Don’t Do
This book will give you the 13 things you need to stop doing to lead a happy successful life. It helps you identify your own personal areas that you need to work through to improve your mental strength. For example, are you a people-pleaser? Take the quiz within to find out if you are, what that means for your happiness, and how to change.
The Essential Life
If you are just beginning your journey of exploring the world of essential oils its can be overwhelming to know how to use them. Do you ingest them, roll them on your skin, or diffuse them into the air? Not all oils can be used in all ways. This book tells you about each oil, how to apply them, what their top uses are for, and what they blend well with.
Smart Women Finish Rich
Another great financial read by David Bach! This book is what turned me on to reading personal finance books. You will learn how to create your dream, security, and retirement baskets of cash. The author talks about the latte factor and how that $5 a day coffee adds up to millions over time.

I need to check out Cameron Diaz’s books, a girl can never love her body too much and I’m definitely on that journey of body love
The last book sounds super interesting if you want to learn how to save more, it’s true that 5$ for a coffee quickly add up
My reading list has just become longer! I see a lot of titles I would love to read…or get the audio for so I can listen during “mom-taxi.”
Love this list! Definitely going to check out David Bach’s books, thanks so much for sharing. Bookmarked 🙂
The Five Love Languages – YES! I swear by this book and recommend it to all couples!
I haven’t read any of these yet! I gotta add them to my list. They look great! Awesome picks!
Love the wide range of inspirational and educational books on this list! I have heard the 5 Love Languages references quiet a bit and really should read it, as I think it will help my partner and I with communication issues. One personal development book I love is The Slight Edge, which is all about how to improve your life by making small, incremental changes each day.
Had no idea that Cameron Diaz has written a book 🙂 Sounds like great titles you recommend here. I read a lot of fiction books, but rarely any non-fiction so I’m pretty sure I miss a lot of great books because of it.
I’ve never read these books. Thanks for sharing, Will be checking these out soon.
I’ve read a few of these, but definitely saw some new ones to add to my list!
What great suggestions, I’ve been hearing such great things about the 5 languages of love!
These are some great selections, thanks for sharing!
These are some great books! I’ve read a few of them. I especially loved The 5 Love Languages.
Adding 13 mentally strong people don’t do to my list of reading… if You lights five languages of love you may enjoy reading five languages of saying sorry
Thank you for your book recommendations for some more parenting books to read. I’m always looking for more ways to help my kids grow.
They all sound like really interesting books. 13 Things Mentally Strong People Don’t Do has to be the book I need to check out.
I have The 5 Languages book – so good!
I’m not a mom but when I become one, I now will know what books to read. Thanks so much for sharing!!
I do love to read, so I’ll have to check some of these out. It’s always nice when you can find an awesome book. I did see that book on hiding the veggies, but my kids always know, ha.
I have never read one of these but some of them pique my interest. I am gonna pick up Smary Couple Finish Rich first. Thanks for sharing.
I love so many of the books that are on your list. I have made my kids quite a few of the recipes from Deceptively Delicious. They never know the difference and it is an added bonus as a parent that I am giving something they like with veggies mixed in! Dave Ramsey is another great one. His book helped me put together a budget that I can really stick to and start paying off some debt. These are great selections!
This is a great list!
All of those on the list were a;ll great! Even just reading from the titles, it seemed to be very interesting books to read! Great list you have here!
Though I have never read them but I love the wide range of inspirational and educational books on this list!
This is a great list! There are definitely a few on here that I want to add to my list! Like, 13 Things Mentally Strong People Don’t Do and Raising Kids For True Greatness! Thanks for the recommendations!
So many great reads. I’ve been curious to give the 5 Love Languages a read. It sounds so interesting.
This is a great list! I like to read books so I think this is perfect for me. Total Money Makeover is the book I need now.
