Before I dived into my passion for textile, my first love actually was books. My mom told me that as a kid, I wanted to sleep with my favourite book more than with favourite stuffed animal. I wanted to learn how to read before starting school so my mom taught me.

Reading more was a goal I discussed a while back in my, 30 before 30, article. And it is one I had struggled with. I love to read. I always have. But it is hard sometime to organise the time to take a book and read it. usually, I will have a book in my bag to open on the bus or train ride, but it often happened that I miss my station 🙁

A week ago I watch Ariel Bissett’s video, Reading after 10, where she discusses her experience reading every day before bed for a week. And came to the conclusion that by the 4th day, it became a habit. So the last few days I tried to create myself that habit, and you know what? it worked! I gain back my excitement about books, and I thought I will share the list of the ones I want to read this year

Outfit: Beanie – Carrhart / Turtle Neck Top – Made myself / 80’s Denim Jeans- Vintage

The list:

Show your work – A. Kleon
A little book for people who have, start or thinking about owning the business (art/creative oriented).

The Perfume – P. Süskin
I have this bool with since I’m 15 years old, it was a present from my French Teacher, but I didn’t manage to open it even if I tried a few times, so this here, I’ll read it!

Just saw the film the other day with the most gorgeous decors, it makes me want to read the original story by G. Marquez.

The Moon is Down – J.Steinbeck

The Winter of Our Discontent – J. Steinbeck

I’m preparing an article about Witches, and stroll around that book among my research.
