July, July, July
A month of fireworks is upon us, and my reading list is proving to be just as explosive. Are anyone else’s months morphing into years, decades, in rapid succession? Just me? Ah. So, my shoddy attempts at concluding each month (my only successful attempt can be viewed here) are unlike the complete reviews chock-a-blocked with unique life-findings like fellow bloggers I adore: The Accidental Hipster Mum and Mim. Perhaps next month will be greener in this aspect!
Note: my list may look weak compared to other moments in my life–graduate school, for instance. Alas, I have some freelance work deadlines approaching and I want to be realistic in my side reading endeavors.
Below are the books I am most enthused to rifle through come July:
- The Alchemist by Paulo Coelho – this (classified novel) is currently being read by a number of friends, and I cannot wait to be aboard.
- Milk & Honey by Rupi Kaur – opening this wee gem to any spot is a treat weightier than a scrumptious gluten free, vegan brownie. Anyone that’s pilfered my book and baking shelves knows this is the best kudos I am able to provide.
- The Seven Principles for Making Marriage Work by John Gottman (I refuse to list his titles as he fluffs them enough in the introduction and onward, surely.) – it is super hard for me to admit that I am reading this. But blogging is close to honesty in my book of books.
- The Goldfinch by Donna Tartt – this has spent an annoyingly long amount of time hovering by my bedside. I will finish you!
How many of you dear folks are in book clubs and/or what resides on your baking booking shelves? Reading makes the world go round, I swear it.
