A Simplified Life // Emily Ley
I love Emily's brand, her planners, and everything she stands for -- her previous book was a winner and so was this one. I'd recommend it to any woman that is looking to slow down and simplify their life. It's an easy read but one that's worth revisiting every year or so as a reminder of what is truly important in life.


The Lying Game // Ruth Ware
I was so excited to read this book, and while it started off good -- it quickly lost my interest. I had a hard time relating to any of the characters, and found myself annoyed with some aspects of the plot -- I'd say this book of hers was much better.


Every Breath You Take // Mary Higgins Clark
I remember picking up my first MHC novel back in 2010 and ever since, I've been hooked on her style of writing. These fast-paced thrillers always keep me guessing and are such easy reads -- making them perfect for winter break or a day at the pool. I loved that this one took place at a ritzy art museum in a classic whodunit scenario.


The Life-Changing Magic of Tidying Up // Marie Kondo
I reread this book in preparation for moving this year -- I really want our home to be intentionally filled with things that bring us joy and have purpose. This book presents such a simple approach to filing your life with what matters and discarding the rest.
