Reading resolution

Here we are in February and for some of us, our New Year's resolutions are in the rear-view mirror. Better luck next year.  I've always found it difficult to stick to a resolution (usually because it involves my diet and, let's be honest, my sugar addiction is going no where!).  But there is one resolution I made that is somewhat sticking.  

In 2017, I decided I would read one book per month.  And so far, still going strong.  Somewhere deep in the Inter-webs I read about someone's resolution to read one book per week - for a total of 52 books!  If you know me at all, you know I'm not a reader.  I think I've even used the words "hate to read" in my lifetime.  However, I really loved the idea of incorporating reading into my daily routine.  If nothing else, I figured (1.) it would drag me away from social media which tends to take up a lot of my time and (2.) I could also use it to read some of those Interior Design books I've had on my shelf!

Ok so, I'm only technically one month in, but would you believe I'm already two books down!  I started with Emily Henderson's Styled.  And then went re-read The Secret by Rhonda Bryne.

Now I know what you're thinking - Styled is mostly pictures!  And hey you're right!  However, I didn't say what "type" of book it had to be!!  Also I love picture books. Being a visual person, if definitely helps me to stay focused!

Now that we're into February, I'm reading The Little Book of Hygge by Meik Wiking.  I'm already so much in love with this book and I'm only one chapter in.  I think we all need a little Hygge in our life!

The next two books following this little beauty are Nothing to Prove by Jennie Allen and In The Company of Women by Grace Bonney.  I can't wait to see what they have in store.

I'm actually excited to read these books - which makes me feel a little more confident about keeping this resolution.  Not to mention, it's kind of a nice break to turn off the tv and curl up with a good book.  One might even add a candle, a cup of tea, some wool socks and call it "hygge".

xo,

Have any good reads?  I'd love to hear your suggestions!!  Leave a comment below with your recommendation for my next book!
