Books That Inspire Us

Jen Heimann

There is something about a good book that can leave a lasting impression on you long after you turn the last page. Often, when people discuss noteworthy books, it's the transformative business reads that steal the spotlight (we're looking at you, Atomic Habits!). These books are helpful, challenging, and have the ability to make a great impact on people, companies, and cultures. 

However, have you ever taken a moment to reflect on the book that recently captivated you, or maybe the first book that ignited a spark of inspiration within you? The kind of book that, after reading, brought about a noticeable change in your life? That’s what we want to share with you today! 

Without further ado, here is a compilation of books that have inspired the L&L team:


The Great Gatsby was the first work I read that really made me understand what literature was and what it meant for words to have meaning. It sent me on a path toward writing, and I never really looked back.


Remarkably Bright Creatures or The Midnight Library! Ugh but The Art of Racing in the Rain and When All Is Said were also life-changing. I love books; I'm bad at picking just one :) 


It's a toss up between The Subtle Art of Not Giving a F*ck By Mark Manson, and Notes From the Underground by Fyodor Dostoevsky. 


The first book I read that truly left me changed was To Kill a Mockingbird when I was in the 8th grade. This book unlocked a passion for reading when I realized how much I didn’t know. One book I recently read that really opened my eyes to this in a new way was The Glass Castle by Jeanette Walls. She painted such a beautiful picture of her life and family, even though they were deeply flawed. 


The Pivot Year by Brianna Weist. The book covers 365 days to become the person you truly want to be. Each day I am challenged in my own thought process and I am beginning to see things in a different light.
