I have another goal this year to focus on reading. After being really successful at this last year (meaning, I hit my huge goal to read 12 books), I set the bar a little higher this year and am aiming for 15 books. Watch out.
That being said, I have a HUGE pile of books that I need to get to, and am prioritizing with five on my winter reading list right now. Let’s face it, sometimes when it’s cold and snowy out, there’s nothing better than curling up with a good book (or a terrible TV show, ha).
Here are the next five I’m planning on reading:
1. You Need a Budget
My sister surprised gifted me this book a few weeks ago and I finally cracked it open, and so far, so good! You Need a Budget is a budgeting software that I’ve been using for about a year and a half after my sister told me about it; and it has truly transformed how I look at my money and feel about my finances. I love their philosophy about it and can’t wait to dig in to their book to learn even more. (You can read more about my YNAB experience HERE.)
2. The Heart’s Invisible Furies
The Heart’s Invisible Furies was one that I got through my Book of the Month Club membership last year, and because it’s really thick, it’s unfortunately fallen to the bottom of my list. However, after seeing that it won the 2017 Book of the Year from BOTM, it’s now jumped up to the top of my list. I have some work travel at the end of this month, and this one will be so good to check out on the plane.
3. Sleeping Beauties
I absolutely LOVE Stephen King; he may actually be one of my favorite authors of all time. He wrote Sleeping Beauties with his son and I’m interested to see what it’s all about. I don’t think I’ve been let down by Stephen King ever (can’t say the same about the TV shows that they make from his books).
4. Battling the Oceans in a Rowboat
This book sounds absolutely amazing and super inspirational… it’s about Mick Dawson’s incredible journey across the North Pacific Ocean in a rowboat. Yes, you read that right… a rowboat! As someone who can’t even swim, I can’t even imagine what that would be like (and seriously how terrified I would be) and am super excited to read about his adventures in Battling the Oceans in a Rowboat.
5. Year One
I haven’t read a Nora Roberts book in a really long time, but I know that she has always written some great ones. Year One has been on my reading list for a bit, and I’m excited to dig in to it… as soon as I get through these other ones. Year One has received some solid reviews, and i think this is another one that’ll be great for a plane trip.
What are you reading right now? What’s on your winter reading list?
