Reading Space Must Haves

So if you don't follow me on Instagram, you may not know that I am a big reader and have a little "reading nook" in my apartment. I thought it would be fun to post about all my must haves for the perfect spot to curl up and read your favorite book.  I also love journaling, blogging, and just relaxing in my corner.  It's my happy place!  I have rounded up for you some of my favorite things!

I love having pillows with me and cozying up as much a possible.  The firefly lights as such a romantic touch. I love having a tray to put some flowers, a candle and of course coffee or tea.  

How GORGEGOUS are these coasters, I have been loving them from Anthropology.  

I also love a floor lamp to light up the space but not to be too harsh.  I have gotten pictures of this beautiful mug and cute sign to hang up in your corner!

Also, a comfy blanket is a must. Like this pillow says "coffee, books & rain" these are a few of my favorite things! 

Here is some more inspiration from Pinterest! What is your favorite thing to have when reading?

Book Review: After I Do

Hi Friends, I recently was on vacation in Florida visiting my parents.  And I don't know about you but one of the things I find most relaxing in life is reading a book.  I am the type of person who gets completely engulfed in book.  On my bucket list for 25 before 25 one thing on my list is to read 25 books in 18 months.  I read three on vacation.  But I REALLY enjoyed the book "After I Do: A Novel" by Taylor Jenkins Reid.

The book is about a married couple who is at a standstill in their relationship unsure of how to go forward.  They know they love each other but they can no longer stand each other.  They decided to take a year off from each other with no contact.  The story follows Lauren and her quest to figure out what marriage and relationships are about.

I honestly felt like I learned a lot of life lessons, about how not to take your significant other for granted and how communication is so key.  Along with honesty, even if it may hurt their feelings, honesty coming from a good place is better than resentment at the end of the day,

 
review of the book after I do book club reading

It was a page turner for me, and although it was an easy read it really struck cords with me.  From the family dynamic to self love.  I'd highly recommend this book!  Are there any books you currently cant put down?
