Books I Want To Read

books_to_read_before_2015

I was doing an awesome job fighting off a horrible cold my sister was “trying” to give me. However,the bipolar weather and sick co-workers finally broke through my barrier and I was sick all last week. I’m almost back to myself. I’ll say that I’m at 95% pre-sick. So, yay for that!

Last week, I actually took a couple of days offs to rest and I used that time to catch up on some books that have been piled up on my nightstand for a while. Now, I need some more books, because I’m back into reading…obsessively.

So, I’ve finally narrowed down the next books I want to attack with a reading vengeance.  A couple are books I’ve been meaning to read based on the reviews, one is a book that I started reading, but stopped and now I can’t find it. Therefore, I need to buy it again. The others just peaked my interest, but all of them are self-help/motivational books.

I’ve been trying to map out my 2015 and I’m aiming to enter next year prepared and eager to seize the life I want. So, here are the books I want to buy and read next.

  • Good to Great by Jim Collins
  • You Are A Badass by Jen Sincero
  • The 4 Hour Work Week by Timothy Ferriss
  • 52 Ways to Live a Kick Ass Life by Andrea Owen
  • The Alchemist by Paulo Coelho

I’m open for other suggestions. So, if you have any, leave them around!

Stylish Book Accessories Spotted on Etsy

I’ve been reading a lot of books lately to try and  absorb the last lazy days of summer. Now, I have a few books that I’ve finished and would like to display with my other books. However, I want to throw some different colors, prints, and textures into the mix. So, I decided to head over to Etsy.com to see if I could find a couple of options and oh, girl, did I!

My book selections tend to be a little dark and monotone, so these bright and colorful fabric book covers would be nice sprinkled through my or anyone’s bookcase.

What’s a good book without an equally good and beautiful  bookmark for extra dazzle? These handcrafted bookmarks from byandreafenise Urbane Opulence collection feature faux skins, faux cowhide and sequins. These would make even the blandest looking book sparkle.

One of my favorite luxuries are leather-bound books. They just feel so authentic and add an antique feel to a book collection. Therefore, these leather bible and book covers seem so necessary and would make a great gift, thanks to the fact that you can get  initials stamped on the inside for a custom feel.

So, if you are looking for ways to spruce up your books or use books for design and decor, head over to Etsy to spot a few options.
