Summer Reading Wish List!

My husband noticed the other day that I'm just eating up books! Remember when I said I'm "not a reader"? Well, I've decided it's time for that to change! I want to be brave and keep learning. The summer seems like the perfect time for a good read. Even in school they'd offer a summer reading list... now as adults, why don't we spend the summer reading?! Here are a few books I have on my wish list right now...

1. The Nesting Place: It Doesn't Have to Be Perfect to Be Beautiful
Blogger Myquillyn Smith from The Nest shares her heart about home...
"There is beauty in the lived-in and loved-on and just-about-used-up, Myquillyn says, and welcoming that imperfection wholeheartedly just might be the most freeing thing you’ll ever do."- as seen on Amazon

2. A Beautiful Mess Happy Handmade Home
Due out Aug. 26th, I can't wait to see this beautiful book from my favorite bloggers- Elsie Larson and Emma Chapman of A Beautiful Mess! I think creating a home is one of the most wonderful things a family can do together. :)

3. The Fault in Our Stars*
Yes, the major movie currently playing... if you haven't seen it yet, check out the book first! Let's cry our eyes out together!

4. Save with Jamie: Shop Smart, Cook Clever, Waste Less
Last week I watched this TED talk with Jamie Oliver and I was so impressed and impassioned by what he had to say. I hope you'll watch and check out his books with me!

I love the The Forest Feast Blog so I discovered she wrote a cookbook, I was elated! The author is a lover of all things natural, has creative recipes, plus she's a watercolor artist... amazing.

6. Season to Taste: How I Lost My Sense of Smell and Found My Way*
22-year old, Molly Burnbaum was right on track for her dream job of being a chef when a terrible accident left her without her sense of smell. This is the story of how one determined woman fights against all odds to reach her dreams!
