It seems these days that the majority of people tend to have resolutions focused around their health and body image. This year I’m making a reading resolution to read at least one book per week.
Now, I understand that this might seem unfeasible by some, but I commute to and from the city for work two hours each day. I used to read on every train trip but of late I find myself reaching for my smart phone rather than a book more often than not. Luckily 2013 is looking to be an excellent year for books and book publishing in general.
Book releases in January most often are focused on health, fitness, and self-help and it makes sense given the time of year. The list below is a combination of captivating fiction, memoirs, and cookbooks sure to help you achieve any resolution on your list.
Sadly in December of 2012 the wonderful Martha Stewart affiliated magazine Whole Living closed. Thankfully though the editors have compiled the best vegetarian recipes of the magazine. The best feature of the book has to be how the editors were able to adapt many “meat” recipes into “meatless” recipes without losing taste and flavor.
Ever since the Olympics this past Summer I cannot get enough of Olympic athlete biographies. From Jessica Ennis to Bradley Wiggins, these athletes who captivated a nation are finally telling their stories. Although everyone is familiar with Tom Daley’s heartbreaking, story I’m interested to get his perspective.
Pardon the pun, but this book is getting a ton of buzz in the publishing world. The story is centered on two sisters in Glasgow who befriend an elderly neighbor after the unexpected disappearance of their parents. The story begins to develop when people start asking questions about the whereabouts of their parents and secrets are unearthed. I’m really excited to read this debut novel from Lisa O’Donnell.
What’s on your reading list for 2013?
