Summer Reading List 2012

Guilty Reading

So Arrest me.  Summer reading is one of my favorite pastimes.  The days are longer, the nights are shorter the heat is ON and the keeping cool is necessity.  I wanted to share my summer 2012 reading list with everyone and hopefully inspire some summer reading of your own.

1. Fifty Shades of Grey Trilogy

I kept hearing about it: 50 shades of what? Then, I would keep seeing the mysterious black covers of a tie, a New Orleans type mask, hand cuffs on the bookshelves at Target and Barnes and Noble. A week rolls by before I started overhearing people reading about it saying  "It's so Good and You would love it".  So I picked up the first book and joined the rest of the nation well...women reading these books. So, far I am on the second book and all I have to say is in the words of Joey Lawrence "Whoa".  It's something I've never read before, its intense, sort eerie, hot, mysterious and a few times I have had to put it down....then pick it back up again. (insert guilty grin).  But, I like it.  The main character Christian Grey will take you on a roller coaster ride of emotion.  You won't like him at first, but then you will love him too.  I still have the last book to read on this trilogy so the verdict is still out on if I really like/love/hate him. 

2. I Spy, DIY Style = Fun Summer Projects ^_^

So excited to run across this blog: I Spy DIY by Jenni Rados.  She has some pretty neat and simple wearable projects to get some great looks.  I plan to do a few so stay tuned for some blog posts in result. ^_^

3.  The One Hundred: A Guide to the Pieces Every Stylish Woman Must Own By Nina Garcia

 I figured since I just turned a 3rd decade old recently (fancy way of saying 30) its time to re-asses my style. Searching for more classical pieces then the trendy, trends. 

4. Louis Vuitton/Marc Jacobs

I still love a good coffee table type book filled with colorful pictures and editorials.  But,  reading about one of my favorite designers Marc Jacobs and his creative direction with Louis Vuitton is an added bonus. 

5. Men's Fashion Illustration A.K.A- I need to sharpen my skills at illustrating Men. 

Finding a  style of illustrating Men is a challenge.  Hopefully, this book will help.  I bought it over a year ago, time to open it up. :)

So that's it.  I am sure I will find more books to read over time but, I have my summer reading list filled.  My summer reading books are listed down below along with some other books from  Check them out and Happy Summer Reading.
