Last year I started the year hoping to read at least one book per month. Sadly, I only made it through 9. I guess I shouldn’t beat myself up too much, but I feel like I have a few friends and colleagues who are able to breeze through nearly 2 books a month. Maybe if I didn’t have a television and picked up a book instead of the remote each night then I would make it through more. As I create my 2017 reading list {and I am positive it will change}, I am truly setting my intentions this year to read 12 books {wish me luck!}. Here is what I read in 2016: You Shall Know Our Velocity // The Stranger // Just Kids {a favorite} // Tiny Beautiful Things // Barbarian Days: A Surfing Life // Hear the Wind Sing // The Hard Thing About Hard Things // The Silver Star // Shoe Dog

And below you will find a few things on my “to read” list.

Cat Marnell

How to Murder Your Life: A Memoir

At twenty-six, Cat Marnell was an associate beauty editor at Lucky, one of the top fashion magazines in America—and that’s all most people knew about her. But she hid a secret life. She was a prescription drug addict. She was also a “doctor shopper” who manipulated Upper East Side psychiatrists for pills, pills, and more pills; a lonely bulimic who spent hundreds of dollars a week on binge foods; a promiscuous party girl who danced barefoot on banquets; a weepy and hallucination-prone insomniac who would take anything—anything—to sleep.

A revelatory and concise account of quantum mechanics, relativity, and the delight in both finding answers and seeking new questions, this jewel of a book lyrically demystifies the extraordinary realities of the cosmos.
