Summer Reading 2018

One of the things I love the most about summer is picking out books for my summer reading list. The last couple of years I’ve taken the time to read more books. I had a period in my life where I never picked up a book, and I realised that I needed books in my life to relax and feel inspired and happy. Now I’m always in the middle of a book or finishing one – and I love it. As soon as I read the last word on the last page I go to my bookshelf and pick out the next one. I also keep a page in my notebook just for book titles that I would love to check out. Then once in a while, I go online and read more about the books on my list. Some of them then end up in my home and some I delete. But I always keep a list. How do you keep track of the books you want to read?

Summer Reading List 2018

Braving the Wilderness by Bréne Brown
Bring Me Back by B.A. Paris
Hormonal by Martie Haselton
How to be Happy by Eva Woods
Little Fires Everywhere by Celeste Ng
Wild Power by Alexandra Pope
The Light We Lost by Jill Santopolo
Womancode by Alisa Vitti
The Last Mrs Parrish by Liv Constantine

These are some of the books currently on my wishlist. I always check out Instagram, The New York Times book section, Amazon, and Pinterest when I start to browse for new books. I always find it inspiring to see what others are reading right now. Lately, I’ve actually been looking at Reese Witherspoon’s Bookclub account on Instagram for inspiration. I hope these 9 books have inspired you to go and check out some of them and that you’ll get the time to read a book or two this summer. I know I’ll be waiting for some of these books to arrive in the mail within the next couple of days. Let me know if there’s a must-read-book that’s missing from my list. I’m sure you get what kind of genre I’m into by now.

5 books to read this fall

It’s time for some serious fall reading. The weather is cold and wet, and it’s time for me (and you) to enjoy even more great books inside under a blanket.

I’ve been offline with my family for the last couple of days. But now I’m back with a list of books currently on my wishlist. Some of them are already on their way to my mailbox. The past few days, we’ve been taking things slow, enjoying some time with our family in Aarhus and in Hjørrring, been fighting a cold (it’s that time of the year again), but now it’s time to return to ‘real life’ again.

Coffee, Paris and life hacks

As you might have guessed by now, I’m pretty passionate about my coffee. And when I came across some of these books, I had to have them. I remember our travel destinations based on where to get the best cup of coffee – and I always research before we go. I would never land in a city and not know where to get a decent cup of coffee. I’m sure two of these books will be of much help in the future. The other ones are simply based on interest and curiosity. I always love reading about new things and finding inspiration in that.

5 books or magazines to read this winter

book-and-coffee-print-etsy

Winter reading is one of my absolute favourite activities. Snuggling up in the sofa with a good book and a warm cup of coffee – that’s magical – just like the print says. I’m reading books more than I’ve done in years – and I’m loving it. I look forward to all the books I’m going to read this autumn and winter. I’ve got everything from fiction, cookbooks and magazines on my list right now.

My top 5 winter reads

A Little Life – Hanya Yanagihara – I’m reading it right now – and loving every page of it
Green Kitchen Smoothies – David Frenkiel & Luise Vindahl – I’ll make some delicious smoothies from this book all winter
After You – Jojo Moyes – It’s about time I find out what Lou’s been up to after Will died
Kinfolk vol 21 – a great source of inspiration
Cereal City Guide – Copenhagen – lovely city lovely guide book

5 things I want to do during our fall break

forrest-fall

I’ll be taking a few days off work this week  to relax and just be with my family – gotta love fall break. This whole foot surgery has been more exhausting than any of us had imagined.

We need time to just be us and focus on the little things in life again. I’ve made a mental list of some of the things I want to do with the kids next week:

1. Drik hot chocolate with lots and lots of cream and marshmallows – this would do too
2. Put on some warm clothes and take a walk in the forrest with my family – including the little four legged cutie
3. Play with chestnuts
4. Watch a movie and make chocolate/peanutbutter popcorn
5. Read in bed – and listen to my little one read out loud. I’m still reading (and enjoying) A Little Life.

Me before you – trailer

I know I normally don’t write about movies here, but I was just watching the official trailer for the movie Me before you, based on the novel by Jojo Moyes. The novel had me weeping for quite some time. The last novel, which made me cry like this was A crack in forever by Jeannie Brewer, which you should read, if you haven’t already.

I have to see the movie, to see if it can live up to the book – it’ll be in cinemas June 3, 2016.

 

6 books for summer

During the last 6 months, I’ve been reading a lot more books again. I really missed it, but I just didn’t have time or my mind was full of other things, I had to deal with. But now I recognize myself again, and I’m glad to say that now I’m always in the middle of reading one or two books. It’s such a fantastic change, and now I find myself browsing the net for books to read this summer. What will you be reading this summer?

Here are a few books on my list:
