About six months ago, I decided to hop back on the reading train- thanks to some convincing from my sister who is a reading machine (she has the best book recs). I’ve always been one that has loved reading and I really enjoy the mental escape that books provide, it was just the matter of finding precious time. After deciding to make it a point to carve out some me time, I’ve been sticking to reading a couple books each month- which felt like a realistic goal for me. I wanted to share some of the good books I’ve read as of lately, as well as some that are on my future reading list. If you’re looking for a book to curl up with this winter, be sure to check out some of these. Click through to see what I’ve been reading and liking…
Since we’re stuck inside more often than not during the winter months, it can be tricky to find things to keep us occupied indoors. I love finding a good spot in our house to get cozy with a book… near the fireplace, on my new daybed, in the guest room window nook, or even in the bath with my bath tray. Reading helps me relax.
Not only are books great for keeping us occupied and our brains busy, but once we’re finished reading- books are the easiest home accessory when it comes to styling. I have books tucked into every room of our home… on bedside tables, coffee tables, the entryway, on our bookshelves, in drawers, and styled wherever I can squeeze them or find a place. They add lovely interest and texture to any room. I always love looking at the book titles in the homes of friends & family members- I just enjoy seeing what everyone is into, in terms of subject matter.

I’ve read the majority of these, and the ones I’ve yet to read all come highly recommended by friends! I’m currently reading The Rose Code by Kate Quinn.

Is anyone else having a crazy January? Reading has felt like such a wonderful reprieve this winter. I also wanted to give you a heads up- the blog schedule could get wonky these next few weeks. I’ll try to stick to the Monday, Wednesday, Friday routine, but I’m having an unexpected surgery later this week and depending on how my recovery goes, I’m not sure how much work or computer time I’ll get in. I’ll do my best, but I’m not sure how I’ll be feeling. Maybe that will be the perfect time to lounge and take it easy with a good book.
Here’s to winter reading and getting cozy indoors with some good books. Are you a reader? How many books do you typically ready in a month or a year? I’d also love to hear your book recommendations, so I can add some new ones to my list! Reading always helps to remind me to slow down, which is a good thing for me. Anyone else?
