So I made a goal this year to read more, and I have to say… I LOVE reading. Though that doesn’t mean it’s easy to get time in lately for a book. Usually I’m cramming in as much as I can on a flight, if I’m not sleeping or working en route, since I’ve had quite a few of those lately or taking a quick 10 here or there to get it in. Check out these books we've been enjoying like Oh Joy!: 60 Ways to Create and Give Joy by Joy Cho, Clean, How to be Parisian Wherever You Are and Rain of Gold! Great reads to add to your bookshelf

How to be a Parisian Wherever You Are // I had been seeing a lot of hype around this book and had to take a read for myself. It’s definitely written in a different style than I’m used to, but it is an entertaining read with some ideas for fashion, food and style for us girls who marvel at Parisian je ne sais quoi.

Oh Joy!: 60 Ways to Create & Give Joy // This is a fun and easy read with ideas for crafty gift giving and simple projects at home from Joy of Oh Joy! Of course, I especially loved browsing my signed copy after celebrating Joy’s book launch in New York this month!

Clean // You guys, I’m going to do a cleanse. I was hesitant to start this book, even on the high recommendation of a friend, because I knew I would want to do a cleanse… and I already knew I needed to. My body needs to hit the reset button, and though there are many formulas and ideas out there, I like how this book breaks it all down scientifically, gathering the best information and making it easy enough to do while still living life. Anyway want to join me?!

Rain of Gold // I’m always a sucker for a true story, and this book intertwines the lives and stories from the heart of Mexico. I was in tears a few times actually and was left pondering my relationship with my children and what kind of lasting impact and values I’m leaving with them. Although that’s not really what this book is about, I was so moved by the mother-child relationships talked about here. Plus, taking two stories and intertwining them so the characters are woven together is a great feat accomplished here… and the fact that it’s what really happened helps makes this such a great read!

Have you read any of these books yet? We can chat about them! Leave a comment here or tweet me about it (#freshmommyreads)! And if you have any book recommendations, I’d love to hear.
