Reading a good book is one of life's greatest pleasures. Books have the power to stir our deepest emotions, teach us something new, and motivate us to tackle our biggest aspirations. Since there's so many great books out there and so little time, we've put together a list of the top 10 inspirational books for 2016 based on our team's favorites. The list includes classics like Paulo Coehlo's The Alchemist to newly released best sellers like Kate Hudson's Pretty Happy. Each one of these has moved us to picture things a little differently and taught us something about ourselves we never knew before. Take a look, find something you love, and enjoy!
