Books // June

Wednesday, June 10, 2015

I've been trying to spend more time reading these past few weeks because after a long day spent in front of a computer the last thing I want is more screen time. But I mean Murder She Wrote is also on Netflix now sooooo it's all about balance, right? ;) Here's what I'm reading this month . . . 

First  up - Anthony Bourdain's book, "Kitchen Confidential". My mom gave this to B for his birthday but since he wasn't finished his current book I nabbed it out from under him to quickly read. I thought this would be more of a memoir and it sort of jumps around, but overall it's not bad. It's definitely a good read for anyone who is interested in all things culinary world. And definitely for anyone who enjoys Bourdain's tone of voice and sense of humor.

My SIL, Jen, and I both ordered this book and plan to read it together. She's organizing her house in preparation for baby (!!) and I am in full blown summer cleaning mode. We got some industrial shelving for our basement and it's time to let go of junk we've had since before we were married. 

Lastly, Serving From the Heart. I've been wanting a new devotional for a while and this one stood out to me because I've been struggling with the community aspect of our faith. For a socially anxious and private person it's hard for me to put myself out there. I always feel better after I do it and I know it's one of the best ways to connect with like-minded people while helping others so I'm hoping this will give me the nudge I need to step out of my comfort zone. 

What are you reading?


  1. I read Kitchen Confidential a few years back. It was a really fun read!

    Quiet time spent reading has been sacred to me recently. I'm currently reading Bettyville by George Hodgman, a beautiful, touching, and funny memoir.

    Let me know if you have any suggestions!

  2. Can't wait to read the organizing book! Let me know when your done with Kitchen Confidential :)
