Reading List: January 2018

As we head into the new year I, as usual, have a trusty stack of books to read in the coming month. Here's the stack for January. One of them I've already read before, but not any of the others.

Today we have snow piled up outside, true to form for New York weather in January. We may brave the snow to go to the library later, however. Since I think everyone (the sisters are still here with me) is getting a touch of cabin fever. 

The life-changing magic of tidying up. Is anyone else watching the new Marie Kondo Netflix show? I binge-watched it and now I want to get rid of even more of our stuff. It's like Spring cleaning is going on in the middle of Winter here. This is a re-read (I've read it a couple times already).

At Home With Madame Chic. A little book that is full of helpful tips and tricks for maintaining a more organized life, and home. 

Lessons From Madame Chic. Basically the same as the book above. All about helpful life lessons, only in the style field. The author pulls advice from her days of living in Paris.

Crazy Rich Asians. I watched the movie shortly after it came out and loved it. I've heard really good things about the book, and honestly, don't know why I haven't read it yet. Well, that's changing this month!

The Gentle Art of Swedish Death Cleaning. This is a great book. Very much along the lines of Kon-Marie method, it's all about only keeping what you love and getting rid of all the clutter in your life. Only instead of being Japanese, the author is Swedish ;)

Beyond The Rainbow Bridge. A beautiful little book about nurturing your children and building a safe and healthy environment for them to thrive in.

A Fierce Love. Shauna Shanks talks of her struggles in her marriage, finding out that her husband had been unfaithful to her and that he wanted a divorce. Instead of giving in she fought to save her marriage. Inspiring and heart-wrenching.

Happy Reading!


  1. Interesting list. I’ve watched the first episode of Tidying Up and thought that she helped that family. I think overall it’s a good process for everyone, and makes you realize that we usually have way too much stuff!
