Jordi Vi­la­suso (Rey, Y&R)

“I could go on and on. I’m re­ally into self-im­prove­ment books, but there is this one book called The Al­chemist, by Paulo Coelho. I love to give young peo­ple that rec­om­men­da­tion. I was for­tu­nate enough to start read­ing it when I first moved to L.A. It’s re­ally in­spir­ing. It’s this great book about this young man’s jour­ney… it was mag­nif­i­cent.”

Sasha Calle (Lola, Y&R)

“Who Moved My Cheese? [by Dr. Spencer John­son]. I love that book! It’s the eas­i­est book to read, but it’s also a guid­ance book. It ex­plains life a lot eas­ier, be­cause life can get com­pli­cated!”

Court­ney Hope (Sally, B&B)

“The Power Of Now by Eck­hart Tolle. It’s one of my fa­vorite books. At least for me, be­cause I get so caught up in my dreams and the things I want to do in the fu­ture, it brings me back to the present. So I of­ten rec­om­mend that to peo­ple, es­pe­cially if they’re stressed-out.”

Karla Mosley (Maya, B&B)

“Brené Brown’s Dar­ing Greatly is a re­ally in­cred­i­ble book that I think ev­ery­one should read be­cause it talks about vul­ner­a­bil­ity. As hu­man be­ings, we some­times put up a shield to pro­tect our­selves. What I’ve found to be true is that it’s ac­tu­ally more brave to be hon­est and open and vul­ner­a­ble to peo­ple. I think it makes my re­la­tion­ships more authen­tic and deeper, and it’s al­lowed me to speak up about things that, in the past, I would have re­gret­ted not say­ing.”

Aaron D. Spears (Justin, B&B)

“Every­body wants to know how to suc­ceed, so there’s this book called The Com­pound Ef­fect [by Dar­ren Hardy] which is all about how your suc­cess is in your daily rou­tine. You have to do some­thing ev­ery day in or­der to get bet­ter, and you may not see the re­sults in a week or even a month, but at some point, the re­sults of what you do daily kicks in ex­po­nen­tially.” “It’s got to be be­tween The Hob­bit [by J.R.R. Tolkien] and the Bi­ble. Those are the top two books. When I was a lit­tle kid, I loved The Lord Of The Rings [tril­ogy], but the three books were so much to get into, it was too much. They were re­ally good books, and The Hob­bit was just as good, but con­densed down in one book. It was still an epic ad­ven­ture and this huge story, but con­cen­trated!”

Peter Bergman (Jack, Y&R)

“Gosh, I’ve got so many. The one book? Well, maybe The Poi­son­wood Bi­ble [by Bar­bara King­solver]. Its char­ac­ters are so rich and the cen­tral char­ac­ter, a woman, is so well-drawn-out. I’ll add one more to that: I re­ally, re­ally liked The Goldfinch [by Donna Tartt] a few years ago.”

Jennifer Gareis (Donna, B&B)

“How To Talk So Kids Will Lis­ten & Lis­ten So Kids Will Talk [by Adele Faber and Elaine Ma­zlish]. It’s a nice way of dis­ci­plin­ing and learn­ing how to un­der­stand kids emo­tion­ally be­fore talk­ing to them, in­stead of just re­act­ing. You think about how they’re feel­ing and that sort of thing.”
