It’s February, and at this point we’ve given up on 90 percent of the New Year’s resolutions we made. Bringing lunch to work every day? Not so much. Going to bed at a reasonable hour? Umm…

One resolution we have kept, though, is reading more. That’s because it’s easy when there are so many fantastic new books and articles. From DJ Khaled to Iran’s illegal underground ballet scene, there was no shortage of engrossing stories to devour this month.

And let’s face it, finishing one of these seven fantastic reads is way easier than making it to the gym four times a week.
