The start of my reading list for 2017

Reading is one of my favorite things to do.  I love finding a new author and/or series and diving in.  I thought I’d share the start of my reading list for 2017.

  1. The Chronology of Water by Lidia Yuknavitch.  My friend and fellow blogger Wanda over at A Wandafulthing saw a Ted Talk with Lidia Yuknavitch, I then heard a podcast on Dear Sugar with her.  So had to put her on my list. It is Lidia memoir.
  2. The Big Short by Michael Lewis.  It is a friend favorite book – which she loaned me but I haven’t cracked open yet.  Did see the film. The crash of the US housing marketing and the people who saw it coming.
  3. Big Magic by Melissa Gilbert.  Unlocking and acknowledging our creativity.
  4. Tiny Beautiful Things by Cheryl Strayed.  I found Dear Sugar Podcasts by accident and now I’m hooked. The book is some of her advice as Dear Sugar. She is also the author of Wild.
  5. Designing Your Life:  how to build a well-lived joyful life by Bill Burnett & Dave Evans
  6. The War of Art: break through the blocks and win your inner creative battles by Steven Pressfield
  7. Not broken: songs are only half the story by Jewel.  Heard her on a podcast and now have to read her book. Story of her life. Leaving home at 15, homeless, international superstar and how her writing and music held it all together.

I am late posting as I have already read Designing Your Life and did a post on it – see post on book here!

I will be looking for more books to read in 2017 so if you have any recommendations please let me know in the comments.  I am always looking for a good read.

You can always start now!

  1. Thanks for the mention in your post, I have a small reading list for the year 12 books in total and I’m always thrilled when I manage more – I tend to be a magazine junkie and manage tons of those…lol
    I do plan on checking out a few of the books you recommend – so thanks for the ideas!

  2. Don’t know yet if I can recommend them, but I just checked out two books from the library:
    What the F – what swearing reveals about our language, our brains, and ourselves
    The Other Einstein
    Looking forward to reading both!

    1. I will definitely check them out. Let me know what you think. Started the Jewel one – hard to get my head around how she grew up. Thanks for stopping by and giving me title! Excited.

Would love to hear your ideas and thoughts!
