One thing I always want to do and sometimes actually do over the holidays is read a bunch of books that I haven’t had the time to read. I have a long running list of to-reads that I usually pick a couple from. I have listed a few here I’ve read and some that are on my list! I also know that some like to read a whole bunch, and some like to read longer books over the whole break, and some don’t even really like to read. So there are a few quick reads at the bottom for the non-reader who might still enjoy some thoughtful stories.
The Read-As-Many-Books-As-I-Can Reader
This series is emotional and charming and lovely. A great series that can easily be read over the holidays with all the resting from overeating and over-partying.
I’ve reviewed this book already but I think it it reads so well and is so interesting that it will keep you flipping pages till the end.
Yup, Steve Martin. Delightful, lonely, and filled with dry wit all while making you think of the most important things in life.
The Tackle-900-Pages Reader
Quirky, curious characters and a whole lot of wit and humor. And a whole lot of pages.
Originally published in installments and makes for some great narrative and some real writer’s writing.
Another one I’ve reviewed. Quick and heartfelt and thought provoking—which thoughts you can use to start some good conversations with your relatives.
Unexpectedly provoking and thoughtful. Also another good conversation starter with relatives you don’t have much to say to.
Similar to When Breath Becomes Air because it was published posthumously. It’s on my to-read list because it’s a subject I’m so intrigued by: spending our limited time well and intentionally.
I’d love to know what you’ll be reading or what’s on your to-read list! It is obviously an ever-growing, never-completed list and I love getting ideas from other people! Gimme, gimme, gimme all of your recommendations!
