Today is the first day of winter! I’m looking forward to it, not just because I can wear twenty layers of sweaters either. For me, a new season means new opportunities and to keep promises I make to myself. Yesterday, I analyzed How I Stacked Up with my Fall TBR. Looking over my list made me realize all the reading I missed out on! Unlike Fall, I’m entering winter with a fresh clay mask and a fresh attitude to match. This article is dedicated to all of the comfy sweaters, clay masks, and books I love.
1. The Wedding Date by Jasmine Guillary
I recently scored this book from a GoodReads Giveaway. Yes, readers of my article Paperback Adventures: The Time I was Obsessed with GoodReads Giveaways, I had a relapse. However, instead of picking every book, I enter responsibly.
2. How to Make a French Family: A Memoir of Love, Food, and Faux pas by Samantha Verant
I’m hoping this is a how to guide to magically transform my family into a French one. Now if only if we all could get past the word “Bonjour.”
3. The Money Book for the Young, Fabulous, and Broke by Suzie Orman
Three perfect adjectives to describe my current situation. After it, I hope to be young, fabulous, and rich very soon. Not by marring a rich gentleman either, may I add.
4. A Year in Provence by Peter Mayle
Well, I’m getting the basics of all of France covered by the end of winter.
5. The Language of Baklava by Diana Abu-Jabar
I’m 98% sure I’ll become hungry while reading this food memoir.
6. C’est La Vie by Suzy Greshan
Judging from book selection, I really want to run away to France and call it a day. But I’m broke, so all of these French travel memoirs will have to do for now.
7. Popular: How a Geek in Pearls Discovered the Secret to Confidence by Maya Wagenen
As a “geek,” I like to know, from one geek to another how the author geek discovered confidence. Confidence is almost as elusive as Bigfoot for some people. Occasionally, I can’t find Bigfoot.
8. Wonder Woman: Warbringer by Leigh Bardugo
After watching Wonder Woman, I have my bullet proof cuffs, lasso of truth, and tiara ready for what Warbringer has to offer!
9. You Are A Badass: How to Stop Doubting Your Greatness and Start Living an Awesome Life by Jen Sincero
After reading I You Are A Badass with Money, I liked it so much I decided to transfer the badassness from my money to my life.
10. Notorious RBG: The Life and Times of Ruth Bader Ginsburg by Irin Carmen
Something about the crown titled on her head like a bawse entices me to read it like a siren’s call.
