I always find myself reading more in the winter. Anyone else with me?? After the hustle and bustle of the holiday season, it just sounds amazing to cuddle up with a blanket, cup of coffee, and a good book. So relaxing! I love taking that time to reflect and get inspired!!
I have put together my favorite books to inspire you here!!! Whether you like to read or rarely have time to sit and read a book, there is definitely an inspiring book here for you! They are all very different:)
1. Present over Perfect By Shauna Niequist
I have read this book a few time actually, each time I take something different away from it. Depending on what is happening in your life, this book will help you simplify and understand what is most important to you. For me, I love blogging, clothes, taking pictures, shopping, and of course Instagram, but sometimes I need to take a step back and just spend some unplugged time with my husband, family, or friends. This book is just so great for the soul!!!
2. In the Light of His Glory (or any daily devotional)
I LOVE this devotional, the pages are pretty and happy and the devotions are so relatable! I keep this book on my night stand which reminds me to read the devotion every night. They are organized by the date so you can start anytime of year and reread the book each new year.
3. The Perfectly Imperfect Home by Deborah Needleman
It’s more than just a pretty coffee table book – this book is AMAZING and I have learned so much from it. It talks about how there is no right or wrong way to decorate your home, it is all about making your house your home and loving it!! The book goes through all different styles and decor ideas to spark your imagination and give you tons of inspiration! Some really great advice in this book! I pretty much love any decorating book and all inspire me, but this is definitely my favorite!
4. Crazy Rich Asians by Kevin Kwan
Although this book isn’t necessarily considered inspirational, sometimes reading a book that makes you escape your reality can be inspiring. My sis-in-law introduced me to this book and I am obsessed!!! It is the perfect read for traveling. Or if you have a high stress job this would be the perfect read to get your mind off things! There are two more books (China Rich Girlfriend & Rich People Problems) in this series and they are working on creating a Motion Picture of it now:)
5. Celebrate by Lauren Conrad & All in Good Taste by Kate Spade
These two books are both about entertaining and are PACKED with good tips, tricks, rules, recipes, and ideas!! From how to set a table correctly to a themed baby shower. Any party you could every want to throw is outlined in these books with tons of inspiration to make it perfect and fun!! They are both easy to read and look so dang cute on a coffee table too;)
Hope you’re feeling inspired after reading these books!!! There is definitely something here for everyone:) Reflect on your 2017 and decide what you can do to make your 2018 the best year yet – sometimes it’s just a mind set!
Stay lovely, dolls<3
