Here's the stack of books I've enjoyed lately...
GoldThis book was good, but not Chris Cleave's best. Little Bee is one of my all-time favorite books, so I expected Gold to be up there on my list of favorites as well. I did enjoy reading it while the Olympics were going on, and I think if I had had lower expectations it would have been even more enjoyable.
Cupcakes and Cashmere Emily's blog is one of my favorites, and her book was like one huge, long blog post that you could read in bed without staring at a computer screen. I love her simplistic approach to decorating and how she makes everything look pretty.
The Time In Between Best book I've read in a while! Don't let the length scare you away! The story sucked me in quickly and I was surprised by the turns the plot took several times. I wish they would make this into a movie because it is just that good!
Plate to PixelThis book has been extremely useful in helping me to take better pictures of my recipes. It is filled with gorgeous food pictures and covers so many aspects of photography. Even if you don't enjoy food photography, this would be a great and different way to learn more about shooting with natural light, styling, etc.
The Perfectly Imperfect HomeI've kind of been obsessed with decorating books and magazines since we bought our house. This little book lays out some basic decorating principles and guidelines to decorating a beautiful but comfortable home.
Design*Sponge at HomeAnyone who enjoys perusing Design*Sponge would like this book. I didn't find that I would attempt too many of the DIYs in the back section of the book, but I loved looking at all of the sneak peeks that comprise a majority of the book. There's some great decorating inspiration in there!
