January was a fabulous start to the year as far as reading went for me. I must say that these lessons I shared about reading a book a week in 2015 made a big difference, particularly having a stack of books from various genres available at home.
Here’s a quick run down of what I read this month. I’ve divided them into two categories Notable Books (these are books I really enjoyed and would gladly recommend) and then Other Books (all those other books I read!).

(you can read my review of Simple Matters here)
2. Princess: An Appalling Indictment of the Treatment of Women in Saudi Arabia – Jean P. Sasson
3. The Vanishing Act of Esme Lennox – Maggie O’Farrell
4. David and Goliath: Underdogs, Misfits and the Art of Battling Giants – Malcolm Gladwell
