some summer reads

Summer’s in full swing, and I for one enjoy spending some of those extra sunny hours outside reading — the old-fashioned way, curled up with a book in my lap. I have three contenders ready to go and can’t wait to dive into them!


The first is Archipelego, by the acclaimed Trinidad-born, London-based author Monique Roffey, which tells the tale of an unforgettable father-daughter adventure and feels like the perfect beach read.

American Beauty: Renovating and Decorating a Beloved Retreat by interior designer Thom Filicia (of Queer Eye for the Straight Guy fame) not only promises lots of eye candy in the form of gorgeous images of his home in NY’s Finger Lakes region, but also useful information for anyone planning a major home renovation.

And finally, It’s All Good: Delicious Easy Recipes That Will Make You Look Good and Feel Great, by Gwyneth Paltrow and Julia Turshen. This is a cookbook, but packed between all the beautiful photos and healthy recipes are lots of tips for fresh, healthy eating — perfect for this time of year.
