As cohost of Today, Hoda Kotb knows a thing or two about a powerful statement. Over the years she's interviewed countless celebrities and everyday people. Along the way she's collected a wealth of stories, and her latest book, This Just Speaks to Me, is a collection of those experiences.
In This Just Speaks to Me, Kotb shares 365 quotes that provide inspiration, hope, and comfort. From topics like motherhood and friendship, love and loss, Kotb gives us words to live by.
Lucky for us, she's also shared some of the books that she's loved this year—many of which have provided her comfort.
