I have a bit of an unhealthy obsession with self-help books in general, but especially with personal finance books. I didn't always feel this way because I assumed personal finance books would be boring, but thankfully I was wrong. The best personal finance books weave a story in between teaching you a thing or two.

The following books only scratch the surface of the books I credit to my knowledge and financial revamp. They are truly vital to anyone wanting to transform their finances.

My favorite time of the year is the start of the official boot season which begins during the transitional period between summer and fall. What's most exciting about the sudden drop in temperatures is stepping back into those sleek pair of boots for the first time in months. Whether zipping up oldies but goodies or investing in a new fall 2021 boot trend, this year is all about the calf boot. Specifically, this is the best option when easing your summer clothes into the appropriate fall looks.
