Fall Reading List: Sweaters On, Pants Off
I bought pumpkin spice flavored almond milk at Whole Foods last week, so I guess it’s officially Fall. (An embarrassingly #basic move that I’d do again in a heartbeat.)
There’s nothing better than looking out your window and seeing the weather is kinda overcast and chilly and blechy-y. It gives you full license to throw on cozy clothes, not wear a bra, and spend a weekend afternoon chilling in bed reading books while drinking warm beverages, maybe while making Insta stories about it. Yah? No? ¯\_(ツ)_/¯
In anticipation of the next few months of mediocre weather, let's trade in weekend hikes and outdoor activities for elementary school-style quiet reading time. It’s the perfect time to refresh your bookshelf and/or Kindle. First, three picks from members of the OH crew, then a list of most-loved tomes that are worth adding to your Amazon cart.
A HOLISTIC MYSTIC REAL LIFE READING LIST
- The Intuitive Way, Penney Peirce: Been recommending this book to just about everyone I meet. Incredible astrologer Dani Beinstein turned me onto it. The exercises Peirce recommends throughout this book are pure gold for cracking open your creativity and intuition.
- The State of Affairs: Rethinking Infidelity; Esther Perel: Anyone else hooked on her podcast? After reading her essay in The Atlantic, I can’t wait to get my hands on this.
- Outrageous Openness; Tosha Silver: A cute, fun read by Tosha Silver about Universal synchoronicities and what it's like to be an astrologer in SF.
- Braving the Wilderness; Bréne Brown: Never not in the mood for a word hug from Bréne Brown. Her book Daring Greatly is a game changer, and I expect her newest release is equally groundbreaking.
- Crystal Muse: Every Day Rituals to Tune Into the Real You; Heather Askinosie and Timmi Jandro: CRYSTALS. Need I say more?
- Sage Living: Decorate For the Life You Want; Anne Sage: New coffee table book slash life inspiration book.
- Enchantment; Guy Kawasaki: It’s not all crystals and personal development. An easy, light must-read for anyone starting a business.
- Slouching Towards Bethlehem; Joan Didion: Books of short stories and essays always remind me of perfectly timed subway rides and solo coffee dates. Didion expertly captures the unique moods and tenses of NYC and LA.
- Inner Work; Robert Johnson: A short, but super informative read for anyone interested in Carl Jung’s theories and methods around accessing the subconscious mind through the dream state.
- The Idiot’s Guide to Ayurveda; Sahara Rose Ketabi: More turmeric lattes, plz. Sahara Rose drops mad knowledge throughout this book—highly recommend if you want to brush up on your Ayurvedic knowledge as we move into the cooler months.
