The holidays are coming up and that means you’ll have a little extra down time to curl up with your favorite blanket and warm fuzzy socks and get lost in a book. These are our top ten picks for your winter reading. I hope you enjoy these reads as much as I did!
- #GIRLBOSS by Sophia Amoruso// Sophia Amoruso, CEO of Nasty Gal, unveils how she created an e-commerce empire. I love her realness and her conversational style of writing – it’s both refreshing and uplifting!
- Time Traveler’s Wife by Audrey Niffenegger// Maybe you’ve already seen the movie, but nothing compares to the book. It’s an unconventional love story that unites a time traveling husband with the woman of his dreams.
- Unbroken by Laura Hillenbrand// A true story of an olympic runner turned airman during World War II. It’s an inspirational book that illustrates the endurance of the human’s spirit.
- When Crickets Cry by Charles Martin// A novel about about a man with a tough past, and a little girl, who has cancer and a doubtful future. Together, they share a journey about healing both of their hearts, figuratively and literally. One of my favorite heartwarming stories.
- The Maze Runner [series] by James Dashners// A thrilling novel of a boy who wakes up devoid of memory in a giant and seemingly unsolvable maze. This first part in Dashners series tells a remarkable story of self discovery.
- Wild by Cheryl Strayed// A memoir of a woman who turns her “mess” of a life around by enduring a 1,100 mile hike up the Pacific Crest Trail. What she learns about life, love, and survival while on her journey is nothing short but inspiring. One of my faves (also featured on Oprah’s book club list)!
- Little Bee by Chris Cleave// A story of young Nigerian refugee who finds hope even in the darkest of circumstances. It’s a powerful story of compassion and wit. Once I started, I just couldn’t put it down!
- The Goldfinch by Donna Hartt// A mesmerizing, stay-up-all-night and tell-all-your-friends triumph about survival and self-invention. So well-written and so moving!
- Design Brooklyn by Anne Hellman// The perfect coffee-table book. This would be a great gift for a friend, or even yourself. I love the ingenuity of the interior design of both public and private spaces in Brooklyn, New York.
- All the Light We Cannot See by Anthony Doerr// “An instant New York Times bestseller about a blind French girl and a German boy whose paths collide in occupied France as both try to survive the devastation of World War II.” A tender story of friendship and love.
