Summer is the season of reading & relaxing. The only time I will ever get to dive into a book is when the girls are running in the sprinkler or going to sleep super early after a long day in the sun, and I am taking full advantage of it. We try to do thirty minutes of reading after breakfast and again before bed each night, so we are always on the hunt for more books to check out from the library or buy for our shelves at home! I wanted to share a few of my favorites & things that are on our reading list, which I will definitely have more time for since we are already finished with Orange is the New Black. Anyone else watch it this season?! I am so sad it’s already over, it was the best yet!!!
The Woman in Cabin 10 // This book came highly recommended from my brother as a similar read to The Girl on the Train (which I loved!). I don’t normally read a lot of fiction or thrillers, but it’s a prefect escape when I am feeling overwhelmed with my to-do list or want something light to read outside. So far, I am a little over halfway done & loving it.
Hello, Glow // Full of beauty DIYs and ways to use essential oils, I have been making my way through this book for a few weeks and trying lots of things along the way. Highly recommended for anyone who uses oils & loves a good natural beauty remedy!
Morning Noon Night // A beautiful lifestyle book full of decor, recipe & overall inspiration. I need books like this to fuel my creativity!
I also picked up Love & Gelato yesterday, mostly because the cover caught my eye, but the reviews look good & it seems like a fun read! And I can never get enough of the second edition Domino book, so much amazing home & styling inspiration, it seems like at least half the pages are flagged because I’m obsessed with something on them!
What the girls are currently reading:
The 50 States // This is Harper’s favorite book, full of super fun illustrations and tons of facts about the United States. She’s obsessed with learning about different states and seems to remember everything. Such a great book to prep for Kindergarten.
The Wonderful Things you will Be // Eloise’s favorite book because, you guessed it, it has babies in it. This read will make you tear up a little bit, the illustrations are amazing and the story is so sweet. We read this all the time, and the girls love the costume pull out page.
The Fox Wish // The girls got this for Easter and it has become a favorite in our house, with classic illustrations & a little bit of magic.
And a few more that we have been reading over and over, I Had a Favorite Dress (which has never been more relevant as Harper is outgrowing so many of her favorite dresses!), Antoinette (a follow up book to Gaston!), The Little Island, and Narwhall: Unicorn of the Sea. It’s always fun to have books about the ocean & sea in the summer, it makes all the beach trips even more exciting for the kids!
What are you reading this Summer?! XO249
