I have a love and hate relationship with books. When I was younger, I devoured book after book, from novels to biographies. As I got older, I slacked reading them and the rise of social media didn’t help me either. To be honest I miss those days where I dropped my backpack in a corner and went straight to my room to read my favourite book at the moment.
I’m trying to get that feeling back so, I smile when I find the perfect coffee table book to start with getting back into the reading rhythm. The short poems/stories from Rupi Kaur is one of my favourites at the moment. Some are so relatable, funny and sad at the same time. Definitely books that takes you riding back to your memory lane.
Fashion related books makes me smile too. The quotes give you a glimpse of the thoughts from fashion designers and stylists. It is fun to read and some you need to take with a grain of salt. I love the pictures or illustrations you’ll find in the books. Many are taken or drawn by well know photographers and illustrators who works behind the scenes of a photoshoot, event or even a fashion magazine! So, not only it gives me a glimpse of their thoughts but, also the events they visited and since I like to visit events for my blog is it for me fascinating to look at.
Same goes for the book How to be Parisian wherever you are, from Sophie Mas, Audrey Diwan, Caroline de Maigret and Anne Berest. The book is about love, style and bad habits with many anecdotes and how-to. A book that makes you take life not seriously and enjoy the moment. Perfect for days when you want to laugh and imagine you wandering styled like a Parisian in the middle of Paris in the Larudée shop eating your favourite macaron and sipping tea. Ugh…Dreaming about it already!
Which book do you like to have on your coffee table? Share it with me and maybe I’ll add it too!
