As I’ve mentioned before, I am not an avid reader. Reading is a labor of love for me since I am prone to fill my time with other things that come a bit more natural to me. That being said, the books I’m sharing are ones that I routinely pick up and I felt that they were worth sharing with you.
I get most of my daily inspiration from books. I love flipping the pages much more than I like scrolling the web. There’s something old fashioned about books that keeps me coming back to them over and over again.
I am spanning the categories to give you a thorough New Year’s book list to add some classics to your 2021 library. I will share anything from cookbooks to Christian education. So, let’s get started!
Books for your Kitchen:
Feeding a Family– If you’re looking for a basic cookbook that helps you cook through the seasons, this is a great starting point. The recipes are simple and use basic ingredients.
French Country Cooking– Take me away to the French countryside, would you? This book has delicious, yet manageable recipes to whet your palette for french cuisine. Not to mention, the photos are beautiful, which matters to me. 🙂
Magnolia Table II– As always, this book is a classic when it comes to down home cooking. I love almost every single recipe and it should be on everyone’s shelf.
Family Table– This cookbook takes you through the steps of season, from scratch cooking. Family Table shows you how to cook from what’s seasonal on the farm. I’d say this is a great book for wedding gifts.
Simply Living Well– While this isn’t exclusively a cook book, it is FULL of recipes to use in your home. This graces my coffee table and I love picking it up and thumbing through it.
Books for your Home:
French Country Style– Grab this book and get the vision for french country design. The colors and textures are beautiful and unfussy.
Perfect English Farmhouse– I have been smitten with English design elements for over a decade. This book compiles all of the most “english” design high points into one book.
Books for your Garden:
This New Year’s book list for 2021 wouldn’t be complete without some books for your garden. We are all looking forward to those first, tender blooms and these books make me even more anxious.
Cottage Gardens– A look into the classic English Cottage Garden design.
English Gardens– This book shares the whimsy and beauty of a typical English garden.
The Complete Gardener– Get tips and pointers from the master himself.
Books for your Soul:
This list made my New Year’s book list because they are books I pull out regularly.
Morning and Evening– A classic devotional that is full of depth and sends you to the Word.
The Holiness of God– This book is a yearly read that helps me to see the amazing attributes of God.
A Long Line of Godly Men encourages me to persevere and continue on without wavering. There are many books in this series, so make sure to look at them all.
