We can’t quite make it through the Christmas season without a book (or two) on our list! Oh, who are we kidding, our entire list is basically books! That’s why we’re sharing a few of the books that we’re hoping to unwrap on Christmas morning. What’s on your list this year?
1. The Little Book of Hygge: Danish Secrets to Happy Living by Meik Wiking
Wiking’s self-help NYT bestseller is at the top of our list—we’ve been eyeing this book for a while now! As the Danish ideal of hygge has gone intensely mainstream, we’ve been wanting to incorporate their secrets into our own lives. And, plus, we hear that cake and coffee are TOTALLY hygge, and if there’s a world where that’s wrong, we don’t want to be right. Wiking also has a second book we’ve got on our list, The Little Book of Lykke: Secrets of the World’s Happiest People, so, if it makes its way into our stocking, that would be hygge with us, too!
2. Mr. Dickens and His Carol: A Novel by Samantha Silva
Fittingly, this Christmas release by Samantha Silva definitely made our list. This poignant story is a tale about what inspired Charles Dickens to write his most famous holiday classic, A Christmas Carol. And, we simply can’t wait to read it!
3. Harry Potter and the Prisoner of Azkaban: The Illustrated Edition by J.K. Rowling
Although, we’ll be waiting a while to get the complete set of Illustrated Editions for Rowling’s Harry Potter series, somehow we’ll manage. Probably by continuously gazing at the amazing artistry of Jim Kay. This illustrated edition offers a whole new reading experience to the adventures of our favorite wizard.
4. 100 Days to Brave: Devotions for Unlocking Your Most Courageous Self by Annie F. Downs
In this non-fiction Christian pick, Annie Downs outlines ways for inspiring readers to live bravely, all the while, disregarding the barriers that we’ve built, and encouraging us to live without fear.
5. 200 Women: Who Will Change The Way You See The World, by Geoff Blackwell
This beautiful book provides a glimpse into what life is like for women around the globe through a compilation of photographs and interviews with some of the most inspiring women of our time. Each of the women answered the same five questions: What really matters to you? What brings you happiness? What do you regard as the lowest depth of misery? What would you change if you could? And which single word do you most identify with?
How would you answer?
