Following the debut of her latest book, This Just Speaks to Me: Words to Live by Every Day, the 56-year-old NBC coanchor thanked her fans for soaring her new collection of quotes to the no. 2 spot on The New York Times best seller list. Hoda also took the opportunity to congratulate Food Network’s Barefoot Contessa star Ina Garten for topping the chart with her new cookbook Modern Comfort Food.

“Wow!!!!!! Thank you thank you #thisjustspeakstome,” Hoda wrote on Instagram alongside a screenshot of the recent best seller list. “And @inagarten --YOU ROCK! #1 looks so good on you.”

Thank you for all that you do for all of us trying to cling to hope! You deserve all the success happening for you professionally and personally ❤️❤️,” one wrote.

Another reader let Hoda know how much she’s appreciated: “We love you Hoda!!! You are so beautiful inside and out. ❤️😘❤️😘.” And, of course, Hoda's fellow Today cohost Jenna Bush Hager was just as ecstatic about the news. “Yasssss!!!!! ✨✨✨💫💫,” she commented. “YAY!!❤️❤️,” Hoda’s mom, Sameha Kotb, added.

Since 2010, Hoda has published seven books in total with four of them landing on The New York Times best seller list. This Just Speaks to Me was inspired by her 2019 book, I Really Needed This Today: Words to Live By, which was the original collection of her favorite quotes. Hoda’s latest read features 365 inspiring quotes and uplifting reflections for every day of the year. It also includes personal stories about people who’ve made a meaningful impact in Hoda's life.

So happy for Hoda's success — here's to hoping more best-selling books are on the horizon!
