7 Soulful Books to Read During Your Next Adventure

2020 and 2021 have been tough! I know, I am with you all. The last year has been a year all of us will remember with the coronavirus pandemic shutting down and disrupting our normal way of life. It is the sole reason I felt compelled to write about seven soulful books to read during your next adventure, but also these books are soulful books to read during the pandemic.

Your next adventure can mean anything – it doesn’t have to mean a trip. It can mean your next weekend, your next road trip, where you are spiritually, etc.

The list of soulful books I’d like to share with you is fantastic for young women in their 30s, as well as anyone seeking happiness inspiration, and an epic summer reading list.

Best Soulful Books to Read 2020-2021

On top of the coronavirus craziness of 2020, my Dad passed away unexpectedly from a heart attack. He was very young. My world shattered… He was my confidant and life coach – one of my biggest fans. I miss him more than words can describe but also know he is always by my side.

I decided to share this highly personal heart-breaking life event with you all because I think a lot of us have struggled with grief, circumstantial depression, and ambiguous emotional pain in 2020-2021 due to the pandemic.

Some of us have had normalcy ripped from us in more ways than we can count. Some of us lost jobs, friends, family, pets, purpose; you name it.

The pandemic has massively disrupted our way of life.

The books I’m about to share with you have changed my life because they were:

  • Beautiful,
  • Thought-provoking,
  • Full of inspiration,
  • Full of hope,
  • Packed with love,
  • Healing, and
  • Happiness

The attributes and inspirational qualities listed above make for a great list of the best soulful books to read in 2020-2021.

Just what we all need!

Whether you find yourself reaching for one of these books this year or later down the road, I know you will get personal growth insight and something interesting from them.

They are all soulfully good reads.

Books to Read When You’re Soul Searching

I often find books give me a different perspective for life along with traveling and being outdoors.

With this in mind, each author has a unique voice and special message to share with the universe. We hear different golden nuggets of information from other people at different times when it is supposed to resonate with us the most.

All the authors below speak to what I think the world is looking for as a collective whole – a greater good, positive energy, being our best selves, living our best lives, and the mystery of life after death.

Due to the pandemic and otherworldly weirdness, I find all the authors below and their messages incredibly thought-provoking and influential. Exactly what we need right now!
