on my reading list

All Book Synopsis from Good Reads

Have you guys heard of GoodReads? (I'm a little late to the game on this one...)

Aaron introduced me to it this past weekend during our three day marathon of couch potatoing. GoodReads users can rate and review books and maintain virtual book shelves or personal reading lists. But it is also a social network. Through GoodReads, you can see what your friends are reading or recommend and even create discussion groups or live chats. It allows you to host a virtual book club so that you can drink your wine at home in your sweatpants. Bra not required. 

Aaron is an avid reader so his GoodReads list makes me a little sheepish. I've finally started my own list and am just owning the fact that I enjoy chick-lit now and again. And I'm putting it out there for the world to see. I'm hoping that by creating a list and really participating in GoodReads, I'll start reading again more regularly. I don't know when or why I stopped reading for pleasure regularly but my corner of the bookshelf is pretty sparse. So here I am adding reading more to the ever growing New Year's resolution list.

My reading list is short right now but this is whats on it:

1 | The Woman I Wanted To Be by  Diane Von Furstenberg
2 | How to Be Parisian Wherever You Are: Love, Style, and Bad Habits by by Anne Berest, Audrey Diwan, Caroline De Maigret, Sophie Mas
3 | 10% Happier: How I Tamed the Voice in My Head, Reduced Stress Without Losing My Edge, and Found Self-Help That Actually Works by Dan Harris
4 | The Rosie Project by Graeme Simsion
5 | The Girl on a Train by Paula Hawkins

So what's on your list? I'd love to connect with you to see what you're reading! You can connect with me here.
