One of my favorite things to do, especially when it’s cold and gloomy outside, is curl up on the couch with a good book and a blanket.  Nothing like it!

A couple of weeks ago, I wrote about how my daily reading ritual fell to the wayside because of other priorities and stressors.  Because of that, I had no reading list, and I felt like my only option was to start from scratch.  Except it wasn’t.  I totally forgot about the reading list on my phone in my notes app.  Thankfully, I found it just in time!

The books on my list come highly recommended from friends and family, so you know they’re good.  And now, I feel the need to share them on MIS just in case some of you are in need of a winter reading list (or wanting to add to an existing one).

  1. The only one I’ve read is Where Did you Go Bernadette? I read it a year or two ago and I loved it! I have her new book on hold at the library now 🙂 I have a few of the others on hold, too!! I’ve been waiting for library books so much lately that I’m afraid I won’t make my reading goal this year LOL

  2. I’m very curious about some of these nonfiction titles. I used to read fiction exclusively aside from the occasional biography or memoir, but since I’ve turned 30 I’ve been more and more intrigued by more motivational nonfiction works. Thanks for sharing Parita!
