Spring 2016 Reading List

The following is a list of eight books that I plan to read this spring. This will be my season to catch up on what I've been meaning to read. A spring cleaning, if you will. Three of them are new selections, but the rest are what I didn't read (read, finish, or reread) from my Winter 2015-2016 Reading List and even from Fall 2015! One pick is actually an extra book (as in not previously listed) that I started early last winter but never finished and want to make a point to do so. I shall have a summer list made exclusively of new selections. Please send me recommendations for my time between Memorial Day and Labor Day!

Michelle's Spring Reading List:


I was hesitant to purchase all in good taste by Kate Spade New York, fearful that I would spend the money but wouldn't learn anything new about entertaining. But, I didn't need to! Flipping through it, I skimmed a lot of good tips. So much fun! I can't wait to read it cover to cover! I think I'll start it today.

Or at your local library.

I look forward to picking up my hold of The Charm Bracelet by Viola Shipman at the library soon. This new novel focuses upon three women who reconnect over the charms and their associated stories.

I follow the blog The Glamorous Housewife and so Bethany Herwegh's ebook Willpower: Become an expert at being AWESOME piqued my interest. The 30 chapters are intended to be read over 30 days, so I figured why not? for April. You can learn more about it by signing up for the blog's newsletter.

Or at your local library.

Listed on my Winter 2015-2016 Reading List, I still haven't checked The Alchemist by Paulo Coelho out of the library yet. The main character Santiago is a shepherd who goes on a quest for treasure in the Egyptian pyramids. It's about discovering one's destiny and may even be life-changing for the reader.

Available on Amazon

From my winter list, I bought the Kindle version of The Empathetic INFJ by Jennifer Soldner and did start reading it, but didn't finish. I read about the INFJ personality type online a lot and this book explores a particular topic.


Yes, this book again. I have actually read Choosing The Simply Luxurious Life: A Modern Woman's Guide by Shannon Ables of the blog The Simply Luxurious Lifebut wanted to reread my copy last summer, fall and winter in order to take notes and draft a review. 


I bought this book from my fall list, but haven't managed to read it either. After reading and looking at the pretty pictures of My Stylish French Girlfriends by Sharon Santoni, I will place this coffee table book in my small stack of style books topping my bookshelf.


I started The Only Street in Paris: Life on the Rue des Martyrs by Elaine Sciolino at the beginning of winter but my Kindle says that I'm only about halfway through. Yes, it is a whole book about a single street. It'll be nice to spend my birthday month in Paris again, if only vicariously through the passionate author this time.
