According to Meghan Markle, These 5 "Badass" Books Should Be on Your Reading List


Before Meghan Markle married Prince Harry and became the Duchess of Sussex, she played paralegal Rachel Zane on Suits and she ran a lifestyle blog called The Tig (named after her favorite wine, Tignanello). Sadly, The Tig no longer exists, but thanks to the internet, we were able to dig up an old post about her favorite books. From "a guide to personal freedom" to a book about a little prince (hmm . . . interesting), here are five "badass" Markle-recommended books that should honestly be required reading.

Love a good self-help book? Then you might want to draw some inspiration from The Motivation Manifesto ($13) by Brendon Burchard, because Markle sure did. "Even on my most Sasha Fierce days there's a mean little voice in there going, 'Hmm . . . I'm not sure if you can, or should, or if you're good enough to,'" Meghan previously wrote on her blog. Burchard even gave Markle a shout-out on Instagram, thanking her for her glowing words back in May 2018.


In The Four Agreements ($7) by Don Miguel Ruiz, the author "reveals the source of self-limiting beliefs that rob us of joy and create needless suffering." "My mom gave me a copy of this book when I was 13 years old," Markle wrote. "To this day, I constantly circle back to the Don Miguel Ruiz classic for the simplest ways to simplify your life." We wonder if she's shared it with Harry yet?


Interestingly enough, Markle also recommended The Little Prince ($9) by Antoine de Saint-Exupery. "I have long been obsessed with this book, and specifically with The Little Fox," Markle said. "Even if I don't revisit the entire existential text (masked as a children's book), the chapter of The Little Fox unearths a truth in me that is always worth the check-in. And if my vouching for it doesn't give it the badass quality you're looking for, the film remake is due to be released soon with a star-studded cast. So there ya go, fancy pants." Funny how things work out, huh?


"A professor at Northwestern University had this book on our list of required reading for an Industrial Engineering class I took my junior year of college," Markle said of Who Moved My Cheese? ($10) by Spencer Johnson. "It was a seemingly odd choice, but at the end of the day, the takeaway was a self-empowerment and motivational bent that I apply to decision making in my life to this very day. It's an invaluable quick read."


Markle described The Tao of Pooh ($13) by Benjamin Hoff as a quick read and wrote, "Aspects of Taoism told through the characters of Winnie the Pooh — I mean, does it get better?" Guess we'll just have to read it to find out!
