What have you been reading lately?

I haven’t read much, I hate to admit it but it’s true. Mostly school books were

on my nightstand and couple of guides ( I like to keep them next to my dreams).

But few weeks ago I walked into my favourite bookstore here in Dubai

(Kinokuniya) and got tons of wonderful book ideas! The busier life gets, the more

nonfiction I read, so here are my favorite books for February:


{1}Tokyo-based author Marie Kondo strives to help her clients not only organise their

offices and homes, but also their entire lives from the inside out. Woman that the Times

calls “Japan’s preeminent guru of tidiness, a warrior princess in the war on clutter”

shares her advices on decluttering homes and encourages simplifying and serenity

in her latest book The Life-Changing Magic of Tidying Up. I can’t wait for the inevitable

inspiration to help me get the life-changing job done!

{2)The Forest Feast by Erin Gleeson is one of those cookbook that you simply want to

posses, even if you’d never use it in your kitchen! Its mouthwatering vegetarian recipes

are beautifully illustrated and they seem very simple to make, so I’m pretty sure it will

leave you satisfied. Meals prepared at the cabin in the woods by a successful photographer

and a former teacher in New York, from asparagus tart to pumpkin smoothies, I can’t

wait to try everything!

{3}Designer Justina Blakeney’s book The New Bohemians explores 20 homes of creative

individuals who embrace free-spirited, no-rules lifestyles and apply that rule to their

homes. From bloggers, boutique owners, ex-pats and entrepreneurs to artists and

urban farmers, the New Bohemians bring creativity, explosion of colours and lots of

plant life in every working/living space.

{4}Kinfolk Magazine has been around my home for a while now, but I finally bought their

new book The Kinfolk Home and I love it from cover to cover. The gorgeous photos of

inspiring homes around the world  accompanied by essays and interviews of the people

who live in them make this book one not to be missed.



I’d like to know what’s on your reading list this month? Enjoy books!
