Like I said, one of the simple pleasures in life is getting book recommendations from friends!
Today we bring you some book recommendations from our blogger buddies:
(I'm so excited about this post!)
Christine Coppa, of Babble's Kid Scoop, and author of the heartbreakingly honest bestseller Rattled! (which I own, read, and loved!), recommends:
Jessica Quirk, from the ever delightful What I Wore (and newly minted That's Quirky!), also the author of What I Wore: Four Seasons, One Closet, Endless Recipes for Personal Style,
Jordan, from the ever classy Ramshackle Glam recommends:
- She seconds my suggestion to read Rob Lowe's book, Stories I Only Tell My Friends
- Also recommending, Augusten Burrough's book, Dry
- My Life in France by Julia Child is probably one of my all time favorite books. The book chronicles Julia's life starting with her move to France with her husband Paul when she was 36 years old. Since it's mostly an autobiography you get a really special look into her experiences, she begins "This is a book about some of the things I have loved most in life...". The story isn't just about cooking and Julia's career, she shares a lot about relationships, and love, and family, and just about being a woman in the world - and the adorable photos of her and Paul just put it over the top : )
Meggy, from the ever stylish Chasing Davies, recommends:
Lauren, from the ever honest Better in Real Life, recommends:
Our beautiful and talented cousin, Kate, recommends:
- The Name of the Wind, and it's sequel Wise Man's Fear, Patrick Rothfuss; Kate says, they're long, wonderfully told and exciting, all about how a hero becomes a hero. But they are summer reading since they're long and they totally pull you in. And they have heroic men doing gallant, awesome things for awesome, strong women.
