Aside from its propensity to have perfect outdoor drinking weather (helloooo beer garden!) and a slew of cute new fashion finds, fall also seems like a good time to get my nose buried in a few good books. Throw open the windows to let the crisp air in and get rid of the summer stuffiness, bake some cookies, pour a glass of vino and crack that puppy open while the kitties surround me with cuddles. Heaven, right? So for this Five for Friday, I found five books that are either wildly enticing and I can’t wait to get my mitts on or beautifully inspiring for this fall. Obviously, the no. 1 book I would recommend would be our book, but I figure that goes without saying (don’t have a copy? Get it here).
“A #GIRLBOSS is in charge of her own life. She gets what she wants because she works for it.”
It’s been a powerhouse summer over here at BAB, so this seems like an appropriate read. Plus many lovely girl bosses, who I respect profusely, highly recommend it.
This beautiful hardcover is chock full of themes, ideas, inspiration and gorgeous photos. Whether you’re pre-engaged, engaged or just really love beautiful things, “The Inspired Wedding” won’t disappoint. Plus, it was written by the lovely lady behind Emmaline Bride, so you know it’s good.
Guys, if you don’t know and read The Bloggess, you really ought to start. Jenny is freaking hilarious. I’m bound and determined to get around to reading her book this fall, because I don’t just feel but I KNOW that I’ve been missing out.
I began following the HONY Facebook page at the behest of a former BAB editor, and every single post gives me pause. Some are funny, some are gut-wrenchingly sad, some are achingly honest … but all are absolutely beautiful. Brandon Stanton does a fan-fucking-tastic job at what he does.
This is one of those books that I started reading because the title seemed oddly fitting (writing/editing + finances? Duh). I kept reading because it was funny and sad and had a tinge of a super bumbling, clumsy “Breaking Bad” feel to it.
What books are you picking up this fall? Have you read anything good lately? Spill in the comments!
