Our February Reading List

The winter months provide the perfect opportunity to cuddle up inside with a good book. Also, with the onset of a new year, we like to make reading more of a priority. With all of this inspiration to pick up a good book, we’ve been lucky to stumble upon some great reads! Here is our February reading list – we think you will enjoy them too..

First Comes Love

Leave it to us to include Emily Giffin’s, of Something Borrowed, latest novel! The story of very different sisters and how they navigate their relationship after tragedy strikes will have you laughing, crying, and setting sights on your own heart’s desires.

The Magnolia Story

Everyone’s favorite reality TV couple lets us into their life a little bit more with this book. Chip & Joanna share the story behind and before HGTV’s Fixer Upper and answer all our burning questions about them and the wildly successful show. By the end, you’ll fall even more in love with them!

Small Great Things

Fans of Jodi Picoult or not will find this new novel thought provoking. The discussions of race, privilege, and power couldn’t come at a better time.

Present Over Perfect

The title and subtitle – Leaving Behind Frantic for a Simpler, More Soulful Way of Living – instantly spoke to our minimalist hearts. In Present Over Perfect Shauna Niequist speaks to all burnt out or worn down women looking to set new priorities in their lives.

The Year of Yes

Creator of all our favorite television shows, girl boss, and all around role model, Shonda Rhimes shares her ‘Year of Yes’ and what life was like before and after. You won’t be able to finish it without inspiration seeping through your skin and “Yes!” sprouting from your lungs. So if you’re looking for your New Year, New You book, this is it!

All the Lives I want

In this collection of essays, Alana Massey, reflects on female figures that have shaped the aspirations of many. As you may suspect, it’s silly and absolutely relatable, wherein self-reflection can’t be avoided. It gets personal and wrought with a critique of culture and the real impact of celebrity lifestyle & industry.
