Need some book ideas for this Spring? One goal I made for myself in the new year is to read more in my down time. Nothing like unwinding with a good book! My reading list is always growing … and that’s a good thing! Today, I’d like to share a few of my recent reads that I highly recommend for those of you looking for books to add to your own reading lists. Each one is unique in topic, but all are equally helpful to us as women!
7 Great Books to Read this Spring
If you want some motivation to kick start you into living for a greater purpose, to strengthen your faith, and to completely change your life, then this book is for you! I LOVED IT! Lara Casey has a way of delivering her message in a way that is relatable to the everyday lives of women. She’s honest with her struggles with perfectionism, she’s witty, and has poured her faith-journey into this book to prayerfully inspire the rest of us women to live boldly and more impotantly: believe boldly! I’m starting Cultivate by Lara Casey this week. I hear nothing but glowing reviews on this one, too! Has anyone else read this yet?
This Devotional allows me to experience time with God throughout the day when time is short. Aside from having a beautiful linen cover, this content is just beautiful for the soul! It’s written as if the author is talking to a close girlfriend … completely relatable! There are even some yummy recipes intertwined with the daily devotions with the idea that spiritual living happens when we gather with our loved ones over meals and snacks. There’s always a point to reflect on after reading, which has been really nice as I grow and develop more in my own relationship with the Lord. You’ll love this devotional just as much as I do!
This book is PERSPECTIVE-CHANGING! Definitely not a quick read, but this one requires some time in deep reflection after reading each section. Well written and is perfect for anyone looking to get back to the basics in their faith and give you an understanding of Godly love. It’ll infuse you with peace, loads of purpose, direction, and an understanding of how to practice love to make the world a better place,while making our own lives more fulfilling. I actually find myself re-reading this one and always gain new understanding!
Who doesn’t love Tia and Tamera?! I was so excited to read Tia’s advice about how the food we eat can completely transform us from the inside out. There’s also lots of easy recipes that make eating clean a little easier and tastier for my family! I learned so much from this book about wellness! Tia shares her story of how she used food as medicine to overcome health issues including, Endometriosis.
The first time I heard the word “hygge” was on an episode of one of my favorite shows, Younger! I was so interested in the concept and how it all works! This book caught my eye while looking online one day and I couldn’t wait to get my hands on a copy to learn the in’s and out’s. In a nutshell, hygge is all about slowing down, redeeming time with loved ones, making your space cozy, inviting, full of love and comfort. This book focuses on the overall well-being that comes from focusing on things that truly matter in life. Cool, right? I’ll be sharing more about this in an upcoming post!
Apparently, I’m into making things really cozy around here 🙂 This book gives tons of cute crafty things to do around the house to make it feel cozy, as well as advice, recipes , and more! It also makes a beautiful coffee table book! It’s organized beautifully and the photos inside are gorgeous. The focus of the book is to make all of the “little” daily moments in life just as special and exciting as the “bigger” moments.
Anybody else a former fan of The Hills? Reality t.v. star, Kristin Cavallari, is now a wife , successful business woman, and mommy who shares how she balances it all gracefully. It’s really easy to read, super helpful, and also gives some insight into life while on t.v. (“playing up” a character) vs. who Kristin really is and was back then. This book has lots of style tips, beauty tips, relationship advice, and young mommy tips that all help to live a balanced and happy life. I’m excited for her next book to come out!
These are all of the books I’ve recently finished! Have you read any of these? I’d love to know your take-aways 🙂
