Hello sweet people,
As I write, I am hunched up into the corner of my sofa, while my little dog somehow takes up the rest of it but I dare not move as she’s fast asleep and cute. Lets talk books!
I am a massive book nerd, and reading everything from cookbooks to thrillers. I am planning on sharing what I read every couple of months or so. On a seperate note, I’m currently drinking a mug of coconut chai and it’s wonderful, it’s by a brand called gypsy tea and you should go get some.
Lets talk books.
Thug Kitchen By Michelle Davis and Matt Holloway – I’ve mentioned this before but now I’m actually using it, and reading the tips it gives about making nut milks and your own jams. It would be a wonderful gift for someone who wants to eat more plants or for someone who likes their cookbooks with a side of swearing. I really enjoyed the alfredo pasta sauce made with almonds, and the pumpkin french toast.
Yoga Therapy for Stress and Anxiety by Robert B, Erin B and Staffan E – I got this book for Christmas from my lovely dad, and I am really enjoying it as someone who truly believes in the power of yoga to change a life for the better. It has suggested routines for winding down, for waking up, for concentration, while also disscusing the idea of how yoga can help to ease stress and fear. I would rush and out buy this if you are at all interested in the mind, body connection.
American Gods by Neil Galman – This is an incredibly world renowned novel, and I can see why. Its weird, mysterious, slightly confusing and totally wonderful. If you enjoy the TV shows Stranger Things, or Twin Peaks then I think you would enjoy this. The TV show has also recently come out, and also looks wonderful. Neill Galman has alot of other fascinating novels which I hope to read in the coming months.
Pumpkin by Lauren Young – This is more a picture book then anything and would make a very cute coffee table book, or animal lover gift. This is a photo book about Pumpkin the racoon who lives with two rescue dogs called Toffee and Oreo; it’s a story of hope, and extreme adorableness. I like to look at it after a long day or when a little pick me up.
Milk and Honey by Rupi Kaur – I don’t really read any poetry books, but for this I’ve made an exception as its so well written, and I really identify with how the authour writes. Milk and Honey is a collection of poetry and prose about survival; about the experience of violence, abuse, love, loss, and femininity. It is split into four chapters, and each chapter serves a different purpose and I’ve really enjoyed it. It’s quite intense and I wouldnt want to read it everyday but its interesting and some of the poems are beautiful.
I hope this inspires you to go and pick up a book ! ❤️
