2022 Spring Reading List

Do you make a reading list every year?

I typically put mine in my planner every December for the following year and just pick them in order of my feelings! LOL! If I feel like reading about business, productivity, family, or health, I just make that one next!

So this year I’ve been slacking off on reading 😱. I’ve chosen to remedy that by picking my next 3 Books which I’ll be working through from late March until the end of May.

Disclosure: I do not buy physical books (with the exception of some cookbooks) because I’ve found that I typically read a book only one time and after working my way through Marie Kondo’s book “The Life-Changing Magic of Tidying Up” several years ago (which literally did change my life and I couldn’t recommend enough!), I’ve come to realize that owning a bunch of books is not really something that I want to manage.

I also tend to listen to everything on Audible and here’s why: I’m hella busy! LOL! Seriously though, between managing 4 kids and their schooling, martial arts, sports, eating (holy moly they eat so much) and everything else they need, my work and personal goals, and a recent cross-country move, it makes the most sense to me. And that’s okay friend! I can listen to a book while doing dishes, cooking, folding laundry, editing photos, driving, and even just going for a walk.

So friend, I hope this reading list inspires you to pick up a book (or download an Audible) and work your way through the Spring Season with hope and joy. I hope that you learn something new about the world or about yourself and that these books create a bit of happiness in your life!

Spring Reading List Choices

  1. The Artist’s Way by Julia Cameron

For my first book, I chose a book that’s been on my reading list since LAST YEAR! It was recommended in a master mind I was in and thankfully I wrote it down. It was even recommended by my friend Katherine a few months later. So this season, I’m definitely going to spend more time focusing on my creativity and being grounded in art. I’m so excited about this one that I may just go crazy and check out a physical copy from the library! haha!

2. The Tipping Point by Malcolm Gladwell

I am always fascinated by how people’s minds work. Aidan constantly tells me that I should study to be a psychologist (a career that for some reason, does not resonate with me at all). I do however find it interesting to learn about how and why we make the choices that we do. This book is right up that alley. I know it sounds like a snore to some but I can’t wait to dive into this gem!

3. The Mindful Day by Laurie J. Cameron

Finally, my last book that I’ll be learning from is all about mindfulness. I spent an entire year (in 2018) working on being kinder to myself and more mindful of my needs. It was HARD! I was always taught (and still believe) that, “If you’ve got time to lean, you’ve got time to clean.” And, while being productive and efficient are still so important, I also know that, “If you’re cranky, take a nap” isn’t just for kids! haha!

So there you have it! I absolutely cannot wait until I read these books and implement the knowledge that is within them. I think you should pick one or two books for the season and let me know in the comments below! If you ever need (or have) recommendations, let me know. I LOVE talking about books! #nerdlifeforever
