Book Review - "Paris Street Style: A Guide to Effortless Chic" by Isabelle Thomas and Frederique Veysset (#21 - 2019)

Paris Street Style: A Guide to Effortless Chic by Isabelle Thomas and Frederique Veysset

Photo-heavy book about style in Paris including interviews with designers, trendsetters, artists, etc.  Nothing groundbreaking but fun to look at.  Would recommend if interested in Paris style/fashion.  Skip otherwise.

Book Review - "An Edited Life" by Anna Newton (#20 - 2019)

An Edited Life by Anna Newton

A solid book from blogger Anna Newton.  A great guide to "declutter" everything in your life, she gives some great tips and tricks and this would be a great book for a graduation present or to read if you just don't know where/how to start getting your life "together".  My only complaint about the book is the light green used to highlight things - it was waaaay too light and made things super hard to read - see photo below.  Other than that, would totally recommend.

Book Review - "Hinch Yourself Happy" by Mrs. Hinch (#19 - 2019)


I listened to this book on Labor Day while cleaning the house (duh) and I LOVED it so much.  If you don't follow Mrs. Hinch on Instagram then I just don't know what you are doing.  She's awesome.  Lots of cleaning tips and tricks and just overall cleaning inspiration.  This book is part autobiography part cleaning manual and just overall warm and fun.  The only frustration I have with following her is that I can't find most of the cleaning products she uses (and swears by) here in the US (she's in the UK).  Totally would recommend!

Book Review - "Same Beach, Next Year" by Dorothea Benton Frank (#18 - 2019)

Same Beach, Next Year by Dorothea Benton Frank

Worth noting that I finished this book about a week before Dorothea Benton Frank passed away on 9/2/2019, such a bummer, I really enjoy her books and I hate that we won't get another.

This is the story of two couples, Adam and Eliza and Eve and Carl, who meet during Summer vacation and follows them through two decades.  Adam and Eve were high school sweethearts.  There's a little jealousy at first with Carl and Eve but all of that is soon forgotten over the years.  Or is it?  This book was okay, not her best, it took me a long time to get through it because I didn't really like any of the characters (well, I did enjoy the part where Eliza was in her mother's native Greece, in fact that would have been a better book).  Anyway, pick one of her other books before this one.

Book Review - "The New Glamour" by Jeff Andrews (#17 - 2019)


If you buy one coffee table decorating/interiors book, buy this one.  Seriously, it's that good.  I was lucky enough to meet Jeff and talk with him a bit at High Point Furniture Market.  He's so nice and really interesting and, being a fan of his work, I enjoyed speaking with him.  I even got my book signed (yay!):

Book Review - "Mera: Tidebreaker" illustrated by Stephen Byrne (#16 - 2019)

Mera: Tidebreaker illustrated by Stephen Byrne

Really liked this graphic novel about Princess Mera who is a teenager and heir to the throne.  Mera overhears of a plan to overthrow the King so she makes it her mission to kill the long-lost Prince and heir to the kingdom of Atlantis.  He's been hidden away on land for all of his life.  It's a good story and really well illustrated.  Would recommend.
