This Mama Reads....

This mama loves to read, particularly when she's on vacation. But even when I'm not (which is actually 99.5% of the time  - don't let my posts fool you!) I still love picking up a good book and my book clubs help hold me accountable. My picks for this post both inspire a form of wanderlust and travel.

Michelle Obama's Becoming, has been all over the shelves lately, so I wanted to pick it up and see what the big deal was for myself. Also, I have a smalllll girl crush on the lady herself. Ok - a huge one. Her book was every bit uplifting, charming and insightful as I had hoped it to be.   Although, I do wish she had shared some more dirt about life in the public eye.
I loved how Michelle (yes, we are on a first name basis), emphasizes women supporting women. She explains how girls weekends were so important in grounding her, and in her overall well being.  It's like Michelle and I are almost the same person because - YES to GIRLS TRIPS and girls weekends!

Crazy Rich Asians by Kevin Kwan is the first in a trilogy of sorts. It is a look into the extravagant lives of the Asian Jet Set. I was basically drooling at every page imagining all of the haute couture and designer purses, and beautiful people described. It is a fun, addictive book - better than the movie (which I also enjoyed!).
I have MAJOR wanderlust now for Singapore. It wasn't really on my list before, but now it's way up there! I just need a designer wardrobe to fit in!

What books have you read lately that have inspired your wanderlust? I'd love to hear! I'm always adding to my Goodreads book list!
