Holiday season is right under our nose. While we’re busy with our works for the end of the year, shopping for friends and yourself, and planning to visit families or having a home party for holidays, we also should put some time aside to just relax, think about this year, and have our own meditation for our mind.
When temperature is not friendly enough for us to stay outside, just grab a cup of your favorite coffee or jasmine tea and sit on your comfortable sofa or rocking chair and take a look at some of the books you’ve been meaning to read for a while.
Good books inspire us in so many ways. We, PinKixx Jewelry, even get our design inspiration from books we love from time to time.
Please check out our 10 books to read before the year is over:
The Signature of All Things by Elizabeth Gilbert
(Elizabeth Gilbert had surely created a wave as her first book Eat, Pray, Love shot stars in a flash. She set the bar really high so we think we all agree here that we have a very high expectation on this one)
The Great Gatsby by F. Scott Fitzgerald
(Who haven’t seen the movie yet? Leonardo looked matured in that movie. We love the story too so reading about it from a different angle will be exciting!)
Life of Pi by Yann Martel
(A novel about fantasy adventure. It has been published in 2001 but the book has never been outdated. This is one classic must to read.
Where’d You Go, Bernadette by Maria Semple
(We fell in love to its cover! Last year The New York Times called this book free range hilarity. If you haven’t read it last year please make sure before 2013 ends that you have already finished reading the book.)
Case Histories by Kate Atkinson
(Big fans of thriller, this is the book for you. A smart thriller with neat plot and unpredictable.)
The Casual Vacancy by J.K. Rowling
(J.K. Rowling was so attached with Harry Potter image that her coming up with something like this book is just almost unimaginable. Definitely a must read before 2013 over!)
Inferno by Dan Brown
(Dan Brown is the expert who writes thrilling stories. We love his writings. How about you?)
The Fault in Our Stars by John Green
(This book keeps showing on 2013 reading list and also in one of Amazon best seller during this year. You would not want to miss it.)
The Goldfinch by Donna Tartt
(A newly published book that has been enlisted into top 100 new release by Amazon.)
Humans of New York by Brandon Stanton
(Just one look at the book and our heart melt away. Enjoy how Brandon Stanton captured the city in his stunning photographs! Definitely a great insight of New York.)
