3 Lifestyle Books For 2017

3 Lifestyle Books For 2017

In my New Year’s Resultions this January, I purposely avoided any reading goals. In the years I’ve learnt I’m not good at setting specific goals just in general, and this mainly applies to books and readings. However every January I’m extremely motivated to start new reads, and this is the time of the year, together with Summer, when not only my to-read list reaches peak, but I also get most of my reading done!

This year I’m finding myself extremely attracted to non-fiction lifestyle books especially: anything from nutrition, health, business and well-being, I’m just all about it! Especially with grey January around and a couple more months between us and Spring, I need to curl up and read anything inspirational, learn new skills or notions and find something exciting to apply to the everyday.

3 Lifestyle Books For 2017

I’ll admitt my list was ginormous, with lifestyle books fitting in all the different categories you could think of, from decluttering your home, approaching a simpler lifestyle, photography, setting health goals and everything in between. But I restrained myself to buy them all and only limited to three (for now!). I’ve already tucked into all three, one almost finished, and really needed to share my picks…

How To Style Your Brand by Fiona Humberstone – Running my own web and brand design business full-time I already knew most of the notions in this book. But knowing a notion and branding someone else is completely different from crafting your own brand, and I’m loving this book so much because it makes you really think about the direction you want to take. It’s like having a brand stylist constantly helping you out and allowing you to see your brand from the outside! I’m sure you have all heard of this book already, but if you’re a blogger looking to up your blog game or a small business owner, this is a great and inspiring book to turn to, with lots of examples, amazing pictures and fun “homeworks”!

Eat Pretty Every Day by Jolene Hart – This time last year I read Jolene’s  famous Eat Pretty: it was a time when I just started caring a lot about what I eat and it felt pretty appropriate and also inspirational for my healthy eating journey. So this year I was very curious to give the “sequel” a proper go! Her books are just so beautiful to go through, with all the beautifully illustrated pages and sections, but I also love the contents and the way she clearly explain what-does-what a whole lot. This new book has a page for each day of the year, with different tips, health goals, food facts, recipes (and more) every day, categorized by seasons. I can’t really wait to have a proper read and have it around every day in 2017!

The Little Book Of Hygge by Meik Wiking – Everyone knows about Hygge by now, and I’m extremely late on the bandwagon, but you know how I feel about anything cosy, and this book is all about that and more! It’s a very light but interesting read: I love to curl up in the cold evenings under a blanket, light up my fairy lights and go through its pages. Jam-packed with interesting Hygge facts and happiness studies, it’s also a different way to get to know a pretty interesting country and its traditions. I was already considering to visit Denmark soon, and now I’m just sold!


What about you? Are we currently reading the same lifestyle books?
Any suggestions on what to read next extremely appreciated… x

  • I’m very tempted to get The Little Book Of Hygge since I’ve seen so many people talking about it. And I’ve also been loving to read lifestyle books over fiction, especially well-being related. 🙂 x

  • Thank you for sharing! I love to read and I love hearing, or reading rather, what others recommend. My name is Brandy and im new to the blogging community. Its nice to meet all of you. Have a blessed day.

  • I enjoy lifestyle books too, I’m currently reading Louise Roe’s “Front Roe: How to be the leading lady in your own life.” It’s packed with fashion, beauty and health tips, and I love her written voice, it’s so helpful and positive. I’m about half way through and I can already tell it’s one of my fav books of the year so far. I really want to read the Hygge book, it sounds fascinating, and like you said perfect to get stuck into on a rainy day. 🙂 xx
