2015 Book List

A few years back I discovered that I was a –Fiction Snob! ( gasp )
 
I tended to gravitate towards fiction books more than any other genre. 
Which is not a bad thing. Especially when I considered the toddlers, naptime chaos and tantrums I experienced on a daily basis. 
 
I needed the escape fiction gave.
 
But as my children grew older, I felt ready to have topics or information to ponder and mull over. So I began forming an Annual Book List.
 
The Annual Book List was made up of non fiction, biographies, or topical titles. All choices were relatable to my interests or season of life.
 
I still kept up my fiction addiction, but these lists gave me a measure of accountability.
 
Each month I would select a title from the list & read. Fast forward many, many years and the annual book list is still going strong.
 
Here is the list I am working on now~

 

Do you make a Book List?

Me & My Book Reading Style

I am a Booksipper. 

I read and drink tea. (a lot )

But what kinds of things do I read?

I am a fiction fanatic! 
I love a good story. A story that draws you in and you can't put down.  I want very little drama and suspense -real life gives me enough of that!

But to keep my mind sharp I began a yearly nonfiction list.  And come to find out, there are all kinds of great nonfiction books too! 

I have read loads of amazing children's books to my kiddos over the years.
Homeschooling has added countless books to our piles.

I read books to learn how to do things.  I have learned so much about essential oils, cooking and homesteading.

Really, I will read just about anything! 
It's all about my mood, and the amount of time I have to settle in with a sippable beverage and my latest read.
