FEED YOUR INNER NERD









Now that the days are getting colder, I like to settle myself in front of the fireplace, all cozied up in a big jumper and accompanied by a good book. Even though I adore making nice autumn walks and dancing through the fallen leaves, it's sometimes really nice to escape the cold and darkness of winter and snuggle up with something to read.

I know for some people reading might seem boring, but I love to get carried away in a beautiful story. Here are my favorites:




  • The Help, Kathryn Stockett
  • The boy in the Striped Pyjamas, John Boyne
  • A Thousand Splendid Suns, Khaled Hosseini
  • The Kite Runner, Khaled Hosseini
  • The Notebook, Nicholas Sparks
  • The Shadow of the Wind, Carlos Ruiz Zafón
  • Breakfast at Tiffany's, Truman Capote
  • Shopaholic, Sophie Kinsella
  • Bergdorf Blondes, Plum Sykes
  • The Devil Wears Prada, Lauren Weisberger
  • Sonny Boy, Annejet van der Zijl
  • Atonement, Ian McEwan
  • Bridget Jones's Diary, Helen Fielding
  • Pride and Prejudice, Jane Austin
  • The Great Gatsby, F. Scott Fitzgerald
  • About a Boy, Nick Hornby
  • The Diary of a Young Girl, Anne Frank 
  • Marley and Me, John Grogan
  • Sarah's Key, Tatiana De Rosnay








Please share your favorites in the comments below! Now if you will excuse me, I'm going back to my book, I still have a few chapters to finish....
Love, 
Rose


Reading is like dreaming with your eyes open

  12. I agree, there's nothing better than getting cosy next to the fire, though I usually read vogue - which is kind of a book! X

  14. God I miss reading a good book but I don't have the time, perhaps you've inspired me to do so again, I guess I just gotta make time. So glad I clicked on your comment that led me back to your blog, your posts' contents are info and image juicy so expect to be seeing some regular comments from me, you don't have to follow me back don't worry. Btw, I recently did a giveaway featuring an authentic Maison Martin Margiela piece, NOT a Margiela for H&M!
