summer reading list

June 19, 2018

 

Admittedly, I've never been much of a reader and I definitely don't have a reading habit but I've been trying to piece one together. I've been trying to establish a sleep routine for the last month or so and it's opened up the world of "night routines" to me so I'm using it as the perfect opportunity to squeeze some reading time in there. Here are some of the books i've picked up recently and can't wait to get page flipping this summer!

 

. . . . . 

 

○ The Subtle Art of Not Giving a Fuck ::

To be honest, this book wasn't necessarily my pick. Last year I tried to get a book club going and I fell off the wagon. This one was voted on by all the wonderful humans who wanted to join in. I had picked up a copy and I'm excited to jump into it!

○ How Not to Die ::

Are you sick and tired of someone telling you something is healthy and then the next person telling you that it's not? I feel you. That used to drive me NUTS. If you're curious about unbiased nutritional studies and information, this book is for you! I

still can't believe I haven't read this bad boy yet! After all, Dr Greger is THE MAN. I've been waiting to get my hands on it now that there's a copy in my family's house. Now it's my turn! I can't wait to get flipping these pages.

○ Women Who Run With Wolves ::

I found a thrifted copy at this at a goodwill and it immediately caught my eye. I typed the title into google and saw all these incredible women talking about it, and saw that it was featured on Emma Watson's book club list so naturally I had to bring it home.

 

The description reads:

"Dr. Clarissa Pinkola Estés unfolds rich intercultural myths, fairy tales, folk tales, and stories, many from her own traditions, in order to help women reconnect with the fierce, healthy, visionary attributes of this instinctual nature. Through the stories and commentaries in this remarkable book, we retrieve, examine, love, and understand the Wild Woman, and hold her against our deep psyches as one who is both magic and medicine."

○ Little Black Book ::

I've heard so many women in business that I look up to talk about this little book and I've been following author Otegha Uwagba on insta forever and have been dying to give it a read. I've heard it described as the perfect resource for self-made female entrepreneurs!

○ Healing Mushrooms ::

Stemming from my herb obsession (I truly think one day I will study to become an herbalist) and my family's Lithuania mushroom-foraging roots, mushrooms have always been fascinating to me. I've personally used them as an adaptogen since I was in university and can't wait to learn about more shroom-ie varieties. And from none other than Tero Isokauppila himself!
