The Books Currently On My “To Read” List

The Books Currently On My "To Read" List | A Girl, Obsessed

One thing I’m wanting to do more of lately is read. I usually go through a fair few books in autumn and then tend to stop reading for several months as I end up getting busy with the beginning of the new year. This year, I’m hoping to read a bit more than I usually do, and I’ve already got a great little assortment of books on my “to read” list that I’m really looking forward to diving in to.

Heidi by Johanna Spyri | I always love reading old classics. After looking through my book collection, it dawned on me that I’ve never actually read Heidi so I added it to my reading list right away. I remember watching the Shirley Temple movie adaptation when I was little and loving it, so I’m excited to finally read the original.

The Life-Changing Magic Of Not Giving A F*ck by Sarah Knight | Self-help books are a guilty pleasure of mine, and after seeing this one from Sarah Knight a handful of times on social media, I knew I had to give it a read. I love a good book with a bit of sass and the name alone makes me hopeful for an entertaining read.

The Little Book Of Lykke by Meik Wiking | Last year I read The Little Book Of Hygge and absolutely fell in love with the cozy concept. When I saw that Meik Wiking was releasing a follow-up book about Danish secrets to happiness, I quickly preordered and can’t wait to pour over all of it’s advice.

The Crowns Of Croswald by D.E. Night* | I’ve been in desperate need of a good fantasy book to get caught up in, so naturally I jumped at the chance to read this debut offering from new author D.E. Night. This is supposed to be the first book in an eventual series, which makes me especially excited because if I end up loving it I know there’s going to be more to come.

Wildflower by Drew Barrymore | This is a book that’s been on my radar for a while, and I finally got my hands on it a few days ago. I love Drew Barrymore and am so inspired by her bubbly personality and the way her life has played out. Autobiographies and memoirs aren’t something I usually read, but for Drew I’ll make an exception.

All In Good Taste by Kate Spade | I know this may not be your typical “must read” type of book, and is more of a conversation piece or coffee table accoutrement. However, I recently got it in one of my gift boxes from Luxe & Bloom, and I’m so excited to flip through all of the pretty pages and get some tips on entertaining.

Which books are currently on your “to read” list?

    Wildflower and All In Good Taste sounds like two books that I would love to read, thank you for the suggestions! Have you read John Green’s new one? That one is definitely my current fave!

    The life changing magic of not giving a f*ck sounds a lot like the subtle art of not giving a f*ck by Mark Manson! I absolutely LOVE self help books, so I might have to give that one a read too! xx

    I need to read more often too- I never make time for it and it’s such a shame! The Life Changing magic of not giving a f*ck, seems like a great read xx

    I love finding new books to read! I’m currently reading three right now which isn’t my style. The two I’m trying to finish are self help books, I love reading them but I find them hard to focus on chapter after chapter trying to finish them once the just of the book comes through.

    What great suggestions! I’m very intrigued by The Life-Changing Magic of Not Giving a F*ck and The Little Book of Lykke. ♥

    I think I might just have to buy the Heidi book because the cover is so beautiful! The not giving a f*ck is another I need to add to my list!

    Loved Drew Barrymore’s book! I read it about 2 years ago but it’s a favorite on my bookshelf. I am currently finishing up “You Are a Badass.” It was one of those books I picked up one day when I was feeling discouraged. I’m enjoying it so far!

    I read the little book of Lykke and The Life Changing Art of not Giving a Fuck last month and I loved them! I’ve got the rest of the books that Sarah Knight brought out and I can’t wait to read the rest of them.
