These are some really fun, inspiring books to read this winter!
Last week we shared our easy ways to stay happy this winter. One of those is learning something new and reading. I love to read stories that inspire me! Some of these below are true stories that happened, so it makes it even better!
Make sure to pour a nice, healthy cup of hot tea while you get into a new read 🙂
Not exactly inspiring per say, but fun to read when it’s cold. This is the second book I have read in this series, and they are really just fun little mysteries to read. Very quick and easy reads which I always appreciate. This one is set during a blizzard, so it is the perfect setting for a winter read.
I LOVE reading books set back in the early 1900s, especially in the winter. This was a unique and interesting book, set in to different times periods.
Winter is the perfect time to read true stories that you may not know much about. This story is so awesome to learn about.
Just like the one above, this is a story about a female rocket scientist. The first one in America to be exact.
As a chemist, I really appreciate reading this story. This is an unforgotten story about the women scientists and engineers that helped make the atom bomb. Not to mention details about the woman who invented nuclear fission, Lise Meitner.
6. Hidden Figures: The American Dream and the Untold Story of the Black Women Mathematicians Who Helped Win the Space Race
I was so excited to see this is a movie coming out soon! Another inspiring story is the women scientist behind the space program. I love learning everything about this time period when it was all about who would make it to outer space first.
Okay one more story about amazing women scientist. This is another unique and unknown story worth a read this winter.
8. Life of the Party: The Remarkable Story of How Brownie Wise Built, and Lost, a Tupperware Party Empire
You can read my full review on this book here. I loved how inspiring this book was. I never knew much about how Tupperware gained popularity, but this story was all about the woman responsible for it’s success (and downfall).
Any Jane Austen fan will enjoy this. More of a cookbook than a novel, but still fun to read this winter and experiment with!
I’ve recommended this book before, but all of Erik Larsons books are based on true historical stories. He writes them so well too. If you haven’t read any of this books, I recommend starting with this one!
This is his latest book, which is on my to read this this winter! I am not even a huge history buff or anything, but his books are so captivating, you can’t help but love them.
Have you ever read Larry McMurtry novels? He wrote Lonesome Dove, The Last Picture Show, Texasville, and Terms of Endearment. All which are awesome movies too. As a Texas girl, I love all his stories. This is his newest novel about the closing of America’s frontier. If you haven’t read his books, I would start with Lonesome Dove for sure.
Okay, now tell me what books you are reading this winter!
