Shelflife: Now Reading.

PicMonkey Collage

The Fault in our Stars / John Green; Memos: The Vogue Years / Diana Vreeland; The Kinfolk Table / Nathan Williams.

New Year, new pages. An electic mix of a YA bestseller, notes from one of the best editors there ever was, and the most beautiful and meaningful cookbook as of late.

TransAtlantic / Colum McCann; Z – A Novel of Zelda Fitzgerald / Therese Anne Fowler;

The Engagements / J. Courtney Sullivan.  

New stories to escape into, each of a different kind, for the start of autumn…and probably for my 12-hour flight next week, too.

Things We Love / Kate Spade New YorkThe Attachments / Rainbow RowellLean In / Sheryl Sandberg; The Betrayal / Helen Dunmore

A bit of a pick ‘n mix lately, as life has also been a bit…picky. Something lighthearted (don’t underestimate YA lit), something to chew on (working girls, unite), something serious (so haunting), and something pretty (that makes me oh-so-happy).



It’s like magic! And is perfect for me since there never seems to be enough space on my desk.

The Extend bookshelf by yet another clever Japanese design firm YOY allows you to make extra space for those all-important tomes that you can’t leave out of reach on the top shelf.

So completely sold!
