Hoda Kotb Sheds Light on Her Impending Comeback to TV While Announcing Her New Book

"Today Show" Hoda Kotb recently took to her official Instagram account to let her fans and followers know that she can't wait to return to television.


The 54-year-old has been on maternity leave since April, after adopting her daughter Hope Catherine, but she hasn't been lying around. In fact, she has been working on her next book.

According to Kotb, she has kept herself busy with a book that seeks to inspire people, an idea that came to her after reading the responses to several of her posts.



Kotb is known for her love of inspirational quotes and she often uses social media to share them. She said:

"You guys know I love to post quotes on Instagram. What I love more is reading your responses to those quotes. I feel like the quotes move you, and a couple of the responses said, 'I really needed this today."


Kotb though that would be a perfect title for the book, which will be called "I Really Needed This Today: Words to Live By" and is scheduled be released on October 15.

It will feature 365 quotes, one for each day of the year, as well as stories that promise to provide the reader with a dose of encouragement, allowing them to see the world in a more positive light.


The TV host expects to have an impact on people's lives, to inspire them and make them feel good. She describes her book as something that people can have by their bedside.

"I Really Needed This Today: Words to Live By" will be the second book released by the New York Times best-selling author in just a few months, as she also released "You Are My Happy," a children's book, in March.



However, despite the announcement of the book and that she can't wait to get back on TV, some fans have accused Kotb of "milking" her maternity leave and staying away for too long.

They believe that Kotb should return to the "Today Show" as soon as possible so her co-workers, such as Savannah Guthrie and Craig Melvin can spend some time with their families as well.
