Five Books On My Current Reading List

I love books!  I constantly have a list of books I want to read, which it takes me forever to get through… because life is crazy, ya know?  But when I have a few minutes there is nothing I love more than to curl up with a good book.  Here are the books that are currently on my reading list…

The Life Changing Magic of Tiding Up

This book has been SO hyped up!  It seems everyone is taking about it.  But if it is life changing, well then I have to read it, right?

Face Paint: The Story of Makeup

This book is written by Lisa Eldridge, who is an extremely famous makeup artist. But this is not your typical how-to.  This is the history of makeup, from ancient times to the present.  Such an interesting approach and I would love to read it!

Live More, Want Less

On a similar note as ‘The Life Changing Magic of Tiding Up’, this book explores the concept of simplifying your life to enjoy it more.  This book uses a week-at-a-time approach to tackle home organization.

The Year of Cozy

This is a beautifully photographed book that includes easy to do recipes and DIY projects, focusing on holidays and special occasions.  I think this would be an inspiring read as well as a perfect addition to my coffee table.

Mere Christianity

This is not new to me… I have read this book before, and would love to read it again.  If you are looking for a good read for your devotional time, I would highly recommend this book.  Written by C.S. Lewis (the author of the Chronicles of Narnia), these were originally a series of talks given over the BBC Radio during World War Two.  Meant to bring hope to a nation in the darkest of times, this book reduces Christianity to its purest form and is extremely inspirational.

Occasionally I am tempted to explore the world of Kindle and downloading books… mainly because they can be cheaper and we are short on space.  Then I always change my mind quickly.  I love to hold a book in my hand… I love the smell of the pages and the excitement of an intriguing cover.  For me, my tablet doesn’t tempt me to pick it up and read, but books just pull you in and MAKE you want to discover what’s inside!

What are some books that you are wanting to read?  Are you a book lover or do you prefer e-books?

  1. I am reading “A Room with a View” as I was tempted on the basis that E. M. Forester was supposed to have been a British humorist whose writings took a jab at the aristocracy. Since I am – and this is stating it mildly – a P.G. Wodehouse addict and they were contemporaries, I thought I’d give it a try. I smile in places. But, if I want to snort and laugh until the covers jiggle off the bed – give me Wodehouse! On the more serious side, I am promising myself to re-read a couple of things. “The House on the Strand” by Daphne DuMaurier and Shakespeare’s “Richard III” both feature some of our family’s ancestors, so it will be interesting to read them in the light of that. I’d also love to get my hands on Joyce Meyer’s new book, “Overload:…” about releasing yourself from the pressures of stress. And…I have some George MacDonald books on the shelf waiting for me. I’ve noticed that “A Room with a View” is on Netflix, so maybe the movie is better than the book?
