KK's 2017 Spring Booklist

KK's 2017 Spring Booklist

Spring is here! A new season of life and what that often brings: busyness. The best way to combat busyness is by making sure you do the things you want to do as well as the things you have to do. And I love to read and learn new things. I usually try and read at least two books per month: one fiction and one non-fiction. Most of the time I read a lot of non-fiction because I no longer have the patience for fiction books. I solved that by using Audible to listen while I do other things. I wouldn’t recommend this if you are not a good multi-tasker. I try not to listen to non-fiction because I want to learn and process what it’s saying.   Speaking of non-traditional ways to consume books, I also love e-books. I use the Kindle app on my Ipad and phone, that way I’ve always got something to read wherever I am. Don’t get me wrong, I love physical books but life is too short to hem and haw over what form your book takes. It’s about whether you're enjoying the content and making use of it.

With digital books:
1. You take up less space in your house or bag
2. You get the book right away (cut out the impact on the earth to get the book to you)
3. You can read it immediately!
4. Usually, with Kindle, you can get a free sample. That’s a big plus for me because I am super impatient and don’t want to spend time or money on a book I won’t read.

And speaking of impatient...on to my picks!

Simply Clean by Becky Rapinchuck This time of year I always have Spring Cleaning on the brain. But, I am a big believer of having a clean space all year round! Becky is the founder of a blog that I love called Clean Mama. With her methods, you only need to maintain your house for about 10 minutes a day and it should always be clean. Intrigued? Me too! Her tip to do laundry EVERYDAY has changed my life.

Capture Your Style: Transform Your Instagram Photos, Showcase Your Life, and Build the Ultimate Platform by Aimee Song It Girl Aimee Song wrote a book about how to up your Instagram game. She is a genius and I want all her secrets. Check out her Instagram and while you're there follow ours!

Writing Without Bullshit: Boost Your Career by Saying What You Mean by Josh Bernoff Josh Bernoff is actually a friend of my boss. He recommended that I give it a read. It was perfect timing since I’ve wanted to improve my writing in business and blogging.

On Writing: A Memoir Of The Craft by Stephen King Speaking of becoming a better writer, this book has been on my reading list for a while. TY actually bought me the copy I have for my birthday. LAST YEAR. Oops. I don’t read much fiction nowadays but Stephen King is a master. With the new “IT” movie coming out (watch the trailer if you dare), I’ve been itching to read this one.

She Reads Truth Bible Oh my gosh. This is the most gorgeous Bible I have seen yet. I pre-ordered it and it won’t arrive until mid-next month but I can’t wait to see it. I got the Poppy colored version (show above) on Amazon here but it also comes in 4 other colors. It's so pretty! This Bible has a lot of comprehensive tools. For instance: introductions to each book and maps of Biblical locations. This is still my first time through the Bible so any context helps when trying to understand the Bible.

Do you have any recommendations? Are you a physical book snob ;-) or have you embraced the future like me? Want a follow-up review on one of these books? Leave a comment below with your answers.

Happy Spring Reading!
Love, KK
