After another busy work trip to gorgeous San Francisco and some kind of bug, I took the weekend to really recharge and embrace this wild Seattle storm. The last few days have been sort of odd here in Seattle, weather-wise. Some predicted we were about to get hit by the “worst storm Seattle has ever seen” and while they were certainly wrong (thank goodness!), we did see some crazy weather, which made the perfect excuse to stay in, order take out and cozy up with a fluffy blanket and a good book.
Even when you aren’t hiding from wind and rain, Fall is the perfect time to dive into some new reads. We’ve rounded up the ones we’re currently eyeing and want to get through at least one or two a month. Up for the challenge? We certainly are.
- “Swing Time” by Zadie Smith: Two women who dream of being dancers in a complicated tale of friendship, passion and power.
- “How to be a person in the world” by Heather Havrilesky: Because we could all use a little more advice in our life, right?
- “Purple Hibiscus” by Adichie: This one is all about taking a step out of your comfort zone and experiencing life from someone else’s perspective. The story is told from a Nigerian teenager’s perspective and is full of emotional turmoil, politics and social customs.
- “Big Magic” by Elizabeth Gilbert: If you’re a creative like us, this book is all about the creative process and is all the inspiration and motivation we need.
What are you all reading? We’d love to hear in the comments!
