book list 2018

I felt like I could have read even more books this year! Still loving that I check out library books and have them sent to my Kindle!

Here is my 2018 book list:

Me Before You
The Light of Paris
The Readers of Broken Wheel Recomend
The Lake House
The Women in the Castle
The Storied Life of A.J. Fikry
The Cafe by the Sea
The Pilot’s Wife
Distant Shores
Wuthering Heights
Water for Elephants
My Name is Lucy Barton
Olive Kittrege

I finished: Dinner: A Love Story and Worn Stories

Still reading: Autumn by Ali Smith

I reread: The Little Paris Bookshop

Also, do cookbooks count? Because I read a lot of those too.

fall wish list (2018)

Lately I have been inspired and loving these things.

This classic clock for our home. Emma is learning so much, so quickly and soon to figure out how to read a real clock. I saw this clock at DWR and thought it the most perfect choice.

Finally found a gardener who could identify my favorite plant/tree in the Lake Merritt gardens and it is Osmanthus Fragrans. It has the tiniest blossoms and they smell like apricot. I am wondering if I could keep it alive on our balcony.

Fall is in the air and colder temps will soon follow. All matter of blankets are on my mind, like this plaid one from Pendelton. It is machine washable and will not shrink or pill. Also is made from sustainable wool.
