January Reading List

What better start to the year than a pile of books you received for Christmas and a blanket? When I shared the above image on my Instagram during a late December weekend hibernation period - I was asked if I could share my thoughts on them after I've finished reading them.

So I thought it might be a nice idea for a monthly blog post. I'm a bit of a book worm and love nothing more than getting stuck into a new book. However, life does sometimes get in the way and I don't really spend as much time as I'd like to with my head buried in the pages of a novel that I can't put down.

One month might be really quiet and filled with Sundays spent on the sofa reading, others might be hectic with the only time I get to read is whilst I'm crammed between fellow commuters on the train struggling to turn the pages.

So I'm not going to commit myself to X amount of books each month, but I would still love to share what's on my monthly reading list - and even more if you shared your thoughts too!

The Little Book of Hygge
 This had been on my reading pile for a very long time, but something I always forgot to pick up on my visit to the book store. To be honest I haven't put it down since I started reading it last week, which hasn't happened since Harry Potter.
I'm sure we're all acquainted with the term "Hygge" by now (which yes, I had been pronouncing "Hig" for two years). It's positive, cosy, and enabling my Danish obsession to such an extent I'm one more chapter away from booking flights to Copenhagen.

The Grand Budapest Hotel
This was a Christmas gift from my boyfriend - my obsession with Wes Anderson was well established early in our relationship, and this was the first film we watched together. A beautifully thoughtful and sentimental gift which I'll treasure always. It's a gorgeous coffee table book filled with behind the scenes photography, incredible insights and an interview with Wes himself. A must-have for all W. Anderson enthusiasts.

In Paris by Jeanne Damas
A collection of 20 profiles featuring a variety of different Parisienne women, from the ultimate French it-girl - Jeanne Damas. Definitely a Saturday-morning-in-bed-with-coffee kind of book. I've had a quick flick through and it looks to be filled with beautiful and inspirational images that I'm sure will be inspiring my wardrobe next month.

Have you read any of the above? If so, what did you think?!


  1. Great reads! I am obsessed with inspirational photography books and recommend The Coveteur book if you want an interiors/celebrity inspired book!
