READING LIST: my amazon wish list

Wednesday, 27 August 2014
My Amazon wish list is always brimming with books and dvds. I was looking at it the other day and realised there are things I added in there over a year ago, that I still have every intention of buying, so it's probably about time I put some money aside and made a mass order. Cleverly, you can see my complete wish list here, and purchase straight from Amazon if you would like.

1. As Always, Julia - my favourite movie is Julie & Julia, a true story based on both the life of Julia Childs, the famous cook, and Julie Powell, the blogger who attempted to cook her way through Childs' considerably large cookbook. I've already read Childs' own memoirs, My Life in France, and I think this collection of letters would lend another layer to her remarkable story.

2. The French Dog - essentially a street style book of dogs in France. C'est bon, non?

3. An Extraordinary Theory of Objects - I'm fascinated by fashion journalist Stephanie LaCava and this book is her memoirs of living in Paris as a young girl, told through objects.

4. The Art of Eating Well - I'm sure you've already heard a lot about the Hemsley sisters. If I hear one more person call grated courgette 'courgetti', I might scream, but I do rather want this book!

5. Letters of Notes - I believe this book began as a blog, chronicling fascinating letters throughout history. I already adore this book, so I can see this one being a firm favourite too.

6. Shark's Fin & Sichuan Pepper - you might notice that I already blogged about this book in my round-up of food memoirs. It's probably my favourite book, so much so that I keep giving my copies away to friends and having to replace them!

7. A Kitchen in France - Manger is my absolute favourite blog for its romantic (and legit) imagery of life in the Thorisson household, featuring recipes that are cleverly interspersed with beautiful writing. I've cooked a few recipes from the blog, so I'm very much looking forward to buying this, though I really should be paying more attention to my cookbook challenge first.

8. #GIRLBOSS - there has been so much hype surround Sophia Amoruso's business handbook, but I still can't decide if I actually want to read it. Any thoughts?

I'd love to hear what's on your wish list too. If you have one going on Amazon, please feel free to post a link to it in the comments!


  1. I have #GirlBoss on my list too. Thank you for the camping book recommendation, I'm loving it! x
