Recently // Currently // In The Queue

We haven’t had much book talk around here lately — let’s remedy that! Here’s what I have recently read, what I’m currently reading, and what’s in the queue.


I’ve been on a bit of a non-fiction kick lately, clearly:

1. Nourishing Traditions by Sally Fallon — Billed as 1 part Science, 1 part Traditional Wisdom, 2 parts Cookbook, I really loved this insight into the Weston A Price school of thought.

2. Lean In: Women, Work and the Will to Lead by Sheryl Sandberg — Billed as modern day career advice mixed with memoir, I thought this book was insightful and interesting and helped me ask myself questions that illuminated what I want in my own career.

3. Getting Things Done: The Art of Stress Free Productivity — A detailed guide to taking care of business in a foolproof way. I loved just about every page of this.


While I’m traveling I intend to full immerse myself in some distracting fiction and a promising memoir:

4. The Age of Miracles by Karen Thompson Walker — A coming of age tale with beautiful writing? Right up my alley!

5. World War Z by Max Brooks — While I am generally not into zombie stories, I hear this one goes so much deeper and that the movie obliterated the book. Best read it first.

6. My Life in France by Julia Child — Our book club pick this month and I could not be more excited to dig in!


And here’s what is waiting for me at the library:

7. The Vegetarian Myth: Food, Justice and Sustainability by Lierre Keith — I hear some really interesting facts about this book recently that made me really think. Curious to finally read this book after hearing so much about it over the years.

8. Life After Life by Kate Atkinson — What is not to love about Kate Atkinson? I’ve heard so much about her unique new novel. Curious to see if I’ll love it or hate it.

9. The Round House by Louise Erdrich — Intriguing plot? Amazing Writer? Yes please.

    I’m totally headed to the library now to check out #s 4, 5, & 6! Thanks for the tips!! I saw World War Z and heard it was nothing like the book, so I’m curious to check it out!

    Thanks for the recommendations. Especially Lean In. It is now on my ‘to read’ list. I always have a look at your book lists when deciding what to read next.

    Great list – I’m def. going to check out some of those titles! I read World War Z when it first came out – I’ll reserve any comments until after you’ve read it. Dying to see the movie – I love zombies! I have some vacation starting tomorrow – so heading to the theatre will be on my list!

    My reading is really sad in the summer. I live on a farm and show horses, so that eats into my spare time. I am currently trying to get through a fiction novel related to horses, but it just isn’t grabbing my attention.

    My to-read list is a long forgotten list in Goodreads!
    :-S Updating that list and actually getting a few books in the queue is on my to-do list for September!

    To read: The Little Way of Ruthie Lemming and all the Gillian Flynn books (yes, I know I’m late to the party…I do this thing where when something gets hyped I ignore it for two years…).

    Getting Things Done is a fabulous methodology to put into practice. It is the only way I stay sane with all of the tasks out there. The follow-up book, Making It All Work, is an excellent read and provides a lot of context for Getting Things Done.

What I’m Pinning

  • Delicious tender chicken meatballs, smothered in sauce and cheese, and baked until bubbly hot. This new twist on an Italian classic is easy to make and will quickly become a family favorite! I prepare a lot of recipes. Many make it to the blog, some make it to the garbage, and some find a special …
  • Tortoiseshell Balayage Lob | Say farewell to foils—forever. Some personal realizations occur when sitting under a red-tinted hood of heat and wearing enough foils to make contact with an alien mothership. Sure, you can get six weeks of color before growing roots plant you back in that salon chair; but you can also end up with brassy zebra stripes that bring back memories of ultra-glossy Lip Smackers and frosted cream eye shadow.
