Summertime means it’s reading time! Whether you’re by the pool, at the lake, or just enjoying the view from your own backyard- we think a good book is the perfect companion for days when relaxing is key. Here are a few books that are on our own “To Read” list this summer:
A book to sneak from the Children’s section: Little House on the Prairie, by Laura Ingalls Wilder
Even if it’s found in the Children’s section, it’s classic that can be read any time we need to get out and get some fresh air with Laura & Mary. “Set during the pioneer days of the late 1800s and early 1900s, Laura Ingalls Wilder’s books chronicle her life growing up on the Western frontier.”
A book to jump on the bandwagon: The Life-Changing Magic of Tidying Up, by Marie Kondo
“Japanese cleaning consultant Marie Kondo takes tidying to a whole new level, promising that if you properly simplify and organize your home once, you’ll never have to do it again. Most methods advocate a room-by-room or little-by-little approach, which doom you to pick away at your piles of stuff forever. The KonMari Method, with its revolutionary category-by-category system, leads to lasting results. In fact, none of Kondo’s clients have lapsed (and she still has a three-month waiting list).”
A book to read before the movie: The Light Between Oceans, M.L. Stedman
“After four harrowing years on the Western Front, Tom Sherbourne returns to Australia and takes a job as the lighthouse keeper on Janus Rock, nearly half a day’s journey from the coast. To this isolated island, where the supply boat comes once a season, Tom brings a young, bold, and loving wife, Isabel. Years later, after two miscarriages and one stillbirth, the grieving Isabel hears a baby’s cries on the wind. A boat has washed up onshore carrying a dead man and a living baby.”
A book full of pretty pictures & Parisians : How to be Parisian Wherever You Are, by A. Berest, A. Diwan, C. De Maigret, & S. Mas
“From four stunning and accomplished French women — at last — a fresh and spirited take on what it really means to be a Parisienne: how they dress, entertain, have fun and attempt to behave themselves.”
