Reading List


You all are a wealth of information. From great vegan recipes to teaching me how to cheers in Portuguese (Tim Tim) - you fill my inbox and my comment section with loads of great tid bits necessary to living a happy, fulfilled life. And right now I'm tapping into that resource yet again. I need the low down on new great books. So tell me, what's on your reading list? I'm all ears. I need a few new favorites to fill these bookshelves. 

On another note we have far too many black and white books. (7 shelves of our massive built in!) The husband is currently on a b&w book covered buying freeze. Crazy, I know, but these bookshelves don't look this fabulous by happenstance. I kid, I kid (sort of)

And since we're having a cute, cozy, little book moment, here are a few of my latest faves that I whole heartedly recommend

  2. I LOVED Little Bee, Bright Shiny Morning, and The Paris Wife. I have added The Art of Racing in the Rain to my to-read list! I just finished The Night Circus and LOVED it. The description/imagery is amazing. I would also recommend When God Was a Rabbit and Dancing for Degas (this is kind of what led me to The Paris Wife).

  3. I loved The Paris Wife too! Over the weekend, I read a new book from cover to cover without putting it down...Mrs. Kennedy and Me, by Clint Hill with Lisa McCubbin. Clint Hill was the secret serviceman assigned to Jackie Kennedy, and this is the first time he's ever told his story (to one of my family friends, no less!). The book is so enchanting and heartbreaking, and I absolutely loved it!!

  4. Little Bee was SO good. I read this after my trip to Africa and it made me cry. ♡

  6. Bean, you complain that I never comment so hear goes. One, awesome post as usual. Two, my books ARE ugly, but oh so interesting for history/politics nerds. Three, I love you.

  7. I've read (and absolutely loved) "The Paris Wife" and "The Art of Dancing In the Rain"; The other two books have been on my "to-read" list forever. Glad to hear you enjoyed them! Anyway, I'm a huge bookworm - over the past year, I've read almost 50 books. So I love giving recommendations. You may have already read this but I would highly, HIGHLY recommend "Unbroken" by Laura Hillenbrand. Also, any of Jen Lancaster's books (hilarious); "What Alice Forgot" by Liane Moriarty (came across a review of this in Oprah's magazine and was intrigued; it did not disappoint); "The China Study" by T. Colin Campbell (changed the way I look at food...and how I eat!); and two of the most important, life-changing books I've ever read - "The Hole In Our Gospel" by Richard Stearns and "Half the Sky: Turning Oppression Into Opportunity for Women Worldwide" by Nicholas Kristof
