December 9, 2015

For al

humansAs Oprah says “What I know for sure…” is the list of reco books is forever long. Feel free to comment with some of your favorites below!

From Christina- The Nightingale by Kristin Hannah (I second this suggestion, loved it!) Furiously Happy by Jennifer Lawson- serious subjects, but laugh out loud funny.  She also wrote Let’s Pretend this Never Happened– awesome as well. Favorite non-fiction is How to Raise an Adult by Julie Lythcott-Haims – the former dean of freshman at Stanford- great ideas for raising  kids who are self sufficient. 

Ali- Boys in the Boat by Daniel James Brown

Julie- Just read a YA book with my daughter- A Mango-Shaped Space by Wendy Mass. Very sweet.

Amy- Humans of New York is a fantastic book gift- coffee table book too- love love love it. Carry On, Warrior for all the moms by Glennon Doyle Melton. Uprooted by Naoimi Novik is a grown-up fairytale, Bone Clocks by David Mitchell was weird and wonderful, and The War that Saved My Life by Kimberly Brubaker Cradley is a YA book that I personally adored and found fantastic!

Jennifer- My husband suggested this book for his dad:  Letters of Note: An Eclectic Collection of Correspondence Deserving of a Wider Audience
And my husband LOVED this book a few years back – Salt: A World History

On my list to check out- My Life on the Road by Gloria Steinham and Songs of Willow Frost by James Ford (he also wrote Hotel on the Corner of Bitter and Sweet) For more of my favorite books, go to the right side bar of this page and choose the drop down under category of “bedside table”. You will see quite a list!

I always want to hear what you all are reading or giving!
