summer reads


I know by now that writing a long list of books to read during the summer and thinking I will actually check them all off is a little ambitious considering I have two babies under two (and we actually want to do stuff together this summer caramba!), but born a list maker, the thought of reading new books makes me excited. So a couple of weeks ago I wrote myself a list of books I want to read, gently noting that I will never read the whole of these books but rather parts of their content, and left it at that. Aspirations paired with flexibility, and grace.

And the list is following:

The Forty Rules of Love
The Raw Food Detox Diet
Rumi: The Book of Love
The Alchemist
The Desire Map
The Forgotten Feminine
Finding Your Own North Star
Women, Food and God
Eat, Pray and Love
The Night Circus
The Power of a Praying Wife
Bébé Day By Day
The Five Love Languages
The Healing Intelligence of Essential Oils
The Encyclopedia of Essential Oils
