My Winter Reading List

Now that we’ve had our first few snow flakes in Boston (and since MJD and I already binge watched Making A Murderer), I started thinking about what I wanted to read next. What better way to spend a cold winter night than curled up with a book and maybe some hot cocoa? Hope you can find something new in the list to read too!

Winter Reading List

It Was Me All Along: Technically, I finished this one over the weekend so it’s on my “already read” list, but I liked it a lot so wanted to include. I’m a big fan of memoirs- I love getting a peek into someone else’s life. I had been wanting to read Andie Mitchell‘s book for a while after following her blog. It’s a great story of overcoming inner struggles, how she lost 130+ pounds and finding what made her happy.

Luckiest Girl Alive:Pretty behind on reading this one since it was a summer recommendation, but after it made it onto numerous end of year book lists, I knew I had to get on it. It’s a thriller in a similar vein to Gone Girl- one of the reviews on Amazon described it as “Gone Girl meets Cosmo meets Sex and The City”. So pretty much sounds perfect.

Fates and Furies: This one was added to my list after seeing it on Subway Book Review (an awesome instagram account if you don’t already follow!). The novel follows a marriage throughout twenty-four years.

Rosemary: The Hidden Kennedy Daughter : I think a lot of us have some sort of curiosity about the Kennedy family. This book was recommended for me on Amazon and it definitely caught my eye with the title alone. Telling the story of a Kennedy many of us do not know about, Rosemary is bound to be an interestingย read about one of the most interesting families.

Boys In The Trees : Another memoir ๐Ÿ™‚ Written by Carly Simon, she shares details about her life, music, marriage and more. Growing up, I loved her book, Amy The Dancing Bear, and who doesn’t want to read about who You’re So Vain is really about? Can’t wait to tear into this book!

Mrs. Engels: I love historical fiction and this novel gives a voice to a character who was part of history that would otherwise never be heard. Lover of Frederick Engels, who co-authored the Communist Manifesto with Karl Marx, Mrs. Engels seems like a woman who I want to know more about. Plus it’s nice to see a historical fiction book out there nowย that isn’t all about France during WWII.

The Good Girl: My sister-in-law recommended this one and I started reading it last night actually. I’m already super intrigued by this thriller and pretty much can’t wait to jump in bed and read. It’s told from the point of view of a few characters so as far as I can tell it’s going to keep you on your toes!

Year of Yes: Written by America’s favorite TV producer, Shona Rimes is telling her own story this time. Her book shares what happens when she decides to start saying yes to everything that scares her- and stops being afraid. I’m definitely ready to start the new year with this book and a bit of girl power!

What is on your winter reading list?

xoxo, Jenna

    This is fun! I’m in a book club and we read Luckiest Girl Alive and I really liked it! We also read Kitchen House which was great and then most recently we read Me Before You and After you, both of which I LOVEDDDD. We’ve discussed the Kennedy book, but for some reason haven’t picked it. It was me all along sounds really good- I love memoirs, too! Our next book is Cuckoo’s Calling, which I’m picking up at the library tonight!

      Thanks girl! I put Luckiest Girl Alive on the list after you mentioned it. Big fan of Me Before You (I cried my eyes out) and I liked After You too- but definitely a fan of the first one. Thanks for the future additions to the list ๐Ÿ™‚

    Have you read “Rosemary” or “Luckiest Girl Alive” yet?

    • February 1, 2016 / 9:19 pm

      Not yet! Luckiest Girl Alive is up next for me. I just finished Fates & Furies tonight and it was great. I’ll keep you posted on how the others are too ๐Ÿ™‚
