Turn the Page.

Being that I’m in the events business and pregnant, I do not get many moments for R & R. My days are mostly jam packed with meetings, deadlines, and anything and everything baby related. Needless to say, I rarely have a spare moment to sit back and enjoy a good read. These days, I only have time to read baby books—in the rare hours I read anything! But, when that day comes when I can immerse myself into a good book, these are at the top of my list to read:

1. Is Everyone Hanging Out Without Me? (And Other Concerns) - Mindy Kaling
“She’s like Tina Fey’s cool little sister. Or perhaps… the next Nora Ephron.” —The New York Times  

2. Lean In: Women, Work, and the Will to Lead - Sheryl Sandberg
 “Lean In poses a set of ambitious challenges to women: to create the lives we want, to be leaders in our work, to be partners in our homes, and to be champions of other women. Sheryl provides pragmatic advice on how women in the twenty-first century can meet these challenges. I hope women—and men—of my generation will read this book to help us build the lives we want to lead and the world we want to live in.” —Chelsea Clinton 

3. The Feast Nearby: How I lost my job, buried a marriage, and found my way by keeping chickens, foraging, preserving, bartering, and eating locally - Robin Mather
“Robin Mather invites us along on an extraordinary journey: a yearlong migration from loss to discovery, from her familiar life to a new world of satisfaction and joy. Reluctantly trading job, marriage, and city life for a new beginning in a lakeside cottage, she learns to live bountifully and generously on little money by focusing on the kitchen, and by relying on neighbors and friends. If you want to learn about preserving food, making chèvre, and raising chickens, here’s your delicious hands-on primer. If you simply want a moving story handsomely told, this is your book, too. You’ll end up wonderfully fed, body and soul, and clear on what it means to live well.” —Nancie McDermott, author of Southern Pies

4. Z: A Novel of Zelda Fitzgerald - Therese Fowler  
"A tender, intimate exploration of a complicated woman." —Library Journal

5. My Foot is Too Big for the Glass Slipper: A Guide to the Less Than Perfect Life -Gabrielle Reece 
"I read My Food is Too Big for the Glass Slipper in one sitting and loved every second of it. It's blunt, honest, hilarious, and inspiring. Everyone who is married—or thinking about getting married—should read this." —Courteney Cox
