Sure you’ve got those fun bestsellers on your book list, but how about self-improvement or educational reads? Summer is a great time to catch up on financial literacy, and finance books aren’t just educational, they can also be empowering. Move over fiction, this summer it is all about being your best self, one page at a time. Here are five books released in the past year that will help you learn how to transform your finances, get out of debt, save more money, and build wealth. And if you happen to find yourself reading while sitting in the sun with a cold drink in your hand, all the better! Happy summer reading. 

Get the Hell out of Debt, Erin Skye Kelly

Erin Skye Kelly wrote Get the Hell Out of Debt after her own struggle to become consumer-debt free. She was tired of listening to middle-aged men in suits tell her to consolidate and refinance her debt, when all that seemed to happen was that she would end up in more debt while they profited. Kelly combines her sense of humor with her straight shooting sensibilities to guide readers through a step by step process that will teach you how to pay off your debt. Her approach follows her real life work that has helped thousands of people eradicate their debt.

Living Debt Free, Shannon Lee Simmons

No one wants to be in debt, but life happens. Whether it’s a little debt or a lot, debt can be a huge cause of stress, affecting both your physical and emotional wellness. As a financial planner who has worked with thousands of clients, Simmons knows that the only way out of the debt cycle is to truly understand your spending triggers. In this book, she shows you how to have a life and pay down debt at the same time, as that’s the only way your debt plan will work. You’ll learn to take control of your finances, pay down your debt, and stay motivated. This no-shame, no-blame approach guide will help you put debt behind you - for good.

Money Like You Mean It, Erica Alini

Focused on millennials and Gen X, this book offers young people tools to navigate finances in the 2020s. From expensive housing and a global pandemic, to a gig economy and side hustles, this is a great book for both young adults and their parents who want to get them off to a good start. Personal finance reporter Erica Alini delivers relevant and useful money basics for today’s reality.

Rich Girl, Broke Girl, Kelly Keehn

The best selling author of Talk Money to Me is back.  As women have more financial freedom and more money now than ever before, Keehn knows many women don’t know how to manage their money and defer big decisions to others. This handy guide teaches you how to save, spend, invest, and plan for a strong financial future. 

Balance, Andrew Hallam

What does it mean to be successful? Personal finance writer Andrew Hallam explores this from the intersection of money, health, relationships and purpose. He combines humor with extensively researched insights of how to approach money in a post-pandemic world. Equal parts smart and savvy, Hallam explains how to spend and invest your money to maximize life satisfaction.
