To be honest, I’m still working on my summer reading list — I’ve got into the bad habit of bringing my laptop to bed to work on sourcing products & design inspiration for our home renovations. I’ll stay up for hours searching for the perfect tile or wallpaper and this week I decided to nix that routine. I love reading and have been trying to get into bed allowing myself an hour to read and it’s been wonderful. I forgot how much I enjoyed it. I’m still reading The Nest (part of my summer list you can see here) and just got really sucked into it! Below are the books I’m determined to read before Spring!
The Nine Of Us: Growing Up Kennedy: I got this book for Christmas and can’t wait to dive in. I’m intrigued and fascinated by all things Kennedy and especially love reading memoirs. I can’t wait to read this account by Jean Kennedy Smith (daughter of Joe & Rose Kennedy) about growing up in this famous family.
Commonwealth: I’m huge fan of Ann Patchett and can’t wait to read her latest work– in which two families become intertwined and changed forever because of an unexpected romantic encounter.
The Whole-Brain Child: I got this for Christmas last year and Piper was so young I wanted to wait until it was a bit more relevant — which it certainly is now! It’s a NYT best seller and “Offers a revolutionary approach to child rearing with twelve key strategies that foster healthy brain development, leading to calmer, happier children.”
Brain Rules For Baby: Another book about brain development that uses science to teach us how to raise happy, smart babies!
