give me something good to read

I go through fazes of reading excessively and lacking motivation and inspiration to pick up a book. Being an English teacher, it's almost a prerequisite that I be somewhat of a "literary type". And while it's true I've read Austen, Bronte', Huxley, Bradbury, Shakespeare, Salinger, Plath and all the other 'acceptable' novels, I mostly just enjoy a good coffee table book.

I love the aesthetics of irregular shaped, hard cover books overflowing with glossy pictures. I'm mesmerised by books about travel that inspire me to seek out far away destinations and I thrive off a good book about healthy food and lifestyle. Here is a list of my go-to books when needing a slice of beauty in my everyday:

1. When Wanderers Cease to Roam: A Travellers Guide to Staying Put

Honestly one of the most beautiful things I have read. A memoir of travelling and staying put, filled with glorious water colour paintings and cute anecdotes.

2. Cupcakes and Cashmere

This book inspired me to start a blog. Written by a LA-based blogger, it deals with style, food, design and entertaining in a cute way.

3. Things We Love

Created by powerhouse brand "Kate Spade" its a visual collection of their top twenty fashion and lifestyle trends. Presented through vivid, glossy photographs, definitely for the art and photography enthusiast.

4. Lauren Conrad: Beauty

Peaked my interest into the chemicals in our face and body products and the harm they can cause to us. A girls guide to hair, make-up and style.

5. See San Francisco

I've never been to San Fran but it's definitely on my destinations wish list. A trendy book that gives you the low-down on all the must see destinations when visiting this remarkable city.
