There’s nothing quite like the magical, healing power of books to get your life back on track.
Luckily for us, four wickedly smart Australian women have all penned new books that are just brimming with the type of loving advice you’d expect to hear from your best girlfriends. Advice that is backed-up with extensive experience and expertise. So you know you are only getting the good stuff.
From fixing your finances to mending a broken heart, here are four new books by Aussie women that you just cannot live without.
Food Hacker by Rosie Mansfield
I am one of those people who watches a cooking show once and then vows to become a master chef. Someone who regularly whips up home-cooked feats for myself and my loved ones.
Then, when I’m actually standing in the supermarket starring at all the ingredients and the enormity of the task ahead of me I always just end up panic-buying a frozen meal. Enter Rosie Mansfield’s new book Food Hacker.
With her new book, Channel Ten’s Good Chef Bad Chef host Rosie has found a way to solve the two main problems that have been preventing busy, everyday people (like me) from properly feeding themselves – the over complication of the subject and finding the time to make healthy recipes.
Her book is packed with healthy tips and tricks you can actually use at home AND her book promotes ingredients you can easily source without making a trip to your local black market.
If your goal for the second half of 2018 involves eating a healthier diet, this is the book for you.
Break-up Boss by Zoe Foster Blake
If there’s anyone I would trust to be the boss of my entire life, from everything to skincare choices and where to holiday, if would be Zoe Foster Blake. The woman has built an entire empire on dishing out sassy, helpful and humorous advice.
Now she has poured all of that knowledge and expertise into a new book called Break-up Boss. It’s like having Zoe in your handbag or in your home at all times, without being faced with any sort of false imprisonments charges, which is always a bonus.
Having a relationship end or having your heart broken can feel like the very worst type of pain, but Zoe is able to dish out some advice that will help you through the very worst moments and even make you laugh.
The best part of this book, which actually started life as an app, is that it doesn’t promise a quick or easy fix for your broken heart. And it acknowledges that not every break-up is the same.
Instead of being preachy, I found it to be funny and helpful. This book will give you a cheerful buzz every time you finish another section of it.
I like to think of it as the Mojito of books.
