Reads January 2017

I have not done blog-clean up in awhile and I realized my “reads” tab has been sorely neglected since I’ve started using Goodreads to track my read & want to read lists !  Last year I took the Goodreads challenge and my goal was to read 25 books this year.  According to Goodreads, I read 24 but I am reasonably confident that it was more than that and some quick library book reads did not make it on my list!  This year, my goal is again to read 25 and I’m sure I’ll read more than that.  I am also a heavy magazine, blog and real paper newspaper reader so there is never a lack of reading material around here.

Here is what I’m reading right now

 

 

225x225bbFiction:  Prince Lestat and the Realms of Atlantis (part of the Vampire Chronicles)  I now it’s not everyone’s cup of tea but BOY can Anne Rice write a story!  It’s been awhile since I’ve read one of the Vampire books I’ve forgotten how much I love them and how easy it is to sink. in.  Want to go back and read them all again…

225x225bb-2Non Fiction:  The Creative Habit / Twyla Tharpe   Super enjoying this, savoring it… I danced for a number of years as an adult so I love learning more about how things are choreographed, and her process.  Hoping some ideas rub off 😉
61vrrzxqk5l-_sx355_bo1204203200_Design:  Textile Designs:  Two Hundred Years of European & American Patterns Organized by motif, style, color, layout and period.   My undergrad degree is in Apparel Design & Textils and my MA is in Interior Design so I totally geek out over books like this!!  So much good stuff!
Love having more than one book going but they have to be very different topics, or fiction/non-fiction/art.   Looking forward to more good finds in 2017!  You can follow me on Goodreads with the button in the sidebar.   What’s on your nightstand??
Happy New Year!

  1. I have Twyla Tharp too, and think I will re-read it. I’ve not seen the Textile Design book before, but as I love fabric and making and design it, I will be googling this. Good luck with your target – if that’s three already this month, you are well on your way!
