Spring Book List
Spring 2018 Book List
Over here at Mom and Pop we read books. Like a lot of them- at least 3 a week. Listed below are some of our favorites and new ones that we are eager to start. Enjoy!
by Jen Hatmaker
One of the funniest books I've read to date. Seriously. Over the course of 7 months, Jen decides to combat the excess monster of modern life by eliminating items ranging from clothing to media and everything in between. Totally relatable especially when experiencing caffeine withdrawals!
By Jen Sincero
Jen flips the script on our conventional way of thinking about money. With exercises at the end of each chapter, this book will soon be dog-eared and inked up with goals and aspirations. This book deserves a re-read every couple of months!
by: Erin Benzakein with Julia Chai
I have not read this book yet, but excited to find inspiration for a small flower garden. I've had an instagram crush on Erin (@floretflower) for a while now! With beautiful photography and step by step guide, this book is surely going to be a spring favorite.
by Jean Stein
I have always been fascinated by Edie Sedgwick. Princess to the 1960s art scene, all glitter and flash on the outside, but hollow and desperate within. Alternately mesmerizing, tragic, and horrifying, this book shattered many myths about the ‘60s experience in America.
by Celeste Ng
I have not read this book yet, but it is on the list. Recently Kerry Washington and Reese Witherspoon, announced they were teaming up to adapt this to a TV series. With a strong female protagonist, who questions the perfect suburbia model, this book contains secrets, motherhood, and the nature of art and identity. I am sure this book will be spotted around poolsides getting a tan with it's reader all spring long .
by Anthony Doerr
Holy Moly! It took Anthony Doerr a decade to write this book, and it was well worth the wait. Weaving together the story of a blind french girl and young Nazi solider, this is one for the ages. Young Marie Laure finds herself in the possession of a valuable object that the Nazis are desperate to own. This is a page turner and had me staying up in the wee hours of the night to find out what happens next!
by Philip Pullman
I first fell in love with Philip Pullman way back in the 8th grade when I read 'The Golden Compass' . I haven't read this yet, but from what I've gathered this is a prequel, and based around a world that is flooded. This is part 1 of 3, and I'm excited to see what unique, imaginative Pullman has up his sleeve on this one.
by Kathleen Barber
A fierce debut novel, Kathleen put a twist on murder-mysteries. The protagonist, Josie is living a great life, up until this new podcast is released that exposes her deep secret about her father's murder. This book leaves you guessing until the end, plus it's incorporating the new era of podcast and how they affect our everyday lives.
by Bryant Terry
I have this thing about cookbooks, I only cook the recipes with photos so I know how to properly plate the food. This cookbook contains amazing food photography as well as some delicious unique recipes that the deliver the spice we all need. Our favorite is the African Peanut Soup mmhmmmmh..
by Sarah Britton
We fell in lover with her blog, then her cookbook, and now she is coming out with a SECOND ! woohoo! Sarah curated this book by listening to her readers, and catered to the request of simplicity. Creating recipes with ingredients that can be found in most grocery stores!
by Amanda Chantal Bacon
I love this book, and with springtime coming, so do all the good raw plant recipes. Amanda Bacon poured her heart and soul into this cookbook and you can see it with the photography and information. She did a fabulous job taking esoteric ideas and making them simple. Our favorite is the section on nut mylks!
