These are the books I read on vacation, mostly easy, “chick lit” reads.
Sushi for Beginners, Marianne Keys: It was a fun quick read, although the cliches started to get a little silly toward the end.
Watermelon, Marianne Keys: I thought it was a really cute, easy read about a woman struggling to make her life her own.
Good Grief, Lolly Winston: Loved this. It was an easy read, but without some of the insufferable qualities of most chick lit. It was heartfelt, a little sad, but such joy at the end.
J.A.P. Chronicles, Isabelle Rose: I’d seen this several times and allmost pick it up that many times as well, so I decided to take it with me on the trip. It was a fun read, but I don’t know that I recommend it. A little rough around the edges.
When Madeline Was Young, Jane Hamilton: The best book out of this lot. Loved it!
And I have some link love for you today. Fed up with the droll granny prints at your local fabric store? Now you can make your own, and it’s not horrendously expensive! If I had more time, I’d be making fabric patterns left and right on Spoonflower.
And, I saw this lovely tutorial for a succulent terrarium over at Decor8. It would make an excellent Christmas present.
