Lifestyle books are some of my favourite ones to shop, since they’re among the easiest books to dip in and out of. I don’t actually end up rereading full novels that often, but with lifestyle books I’ll often find myself flipping through the pages looking for inspiration. I’ve picked up a few new lifestyle reads lately, and figured I’d share quick reviews what turned out to be one love, one like and one miss.

This little book is so massively popular that I actually had some trouble getting my hands on it, but it’s no wonder since I absolutely adored this book. It’s a lifestyle book all about the trickily translatable Danish concept of hygge. Basically it’s all about appreciating the little things in life; candles, cocoa and all things snuggly. Just the simple act of reading this book will make you happier.
It’s not often that I give a book a truly bad review, but this is one of those cases. This is one of those blogger books that just about every blogger seems to own, so I simply had to pick it up to see what all the fuss was about. And to be honest, I don’t get it at all. The book is a collection of personal essays and photographs by the ever so cool Alexa Chung. If you’re a serious Alexa fangirl, you might enjoy it. But besides the obviously Instagrammable cover, this book didn’t seem to have any value for me.
I’ve always loved the fun, feminine and quirky aesthetic of Kate Spade. So I already owned one of their books before this one. All In Good Taste is a book all about entertaining and the art of throwing a fabulous soirée. From food and drinks to invitations and playlists, this book has everything you could possibly need for throwing a party. And it’s all done with the amazing Kate Spade flair. I also loved the little personal essays and anecdotes thrown in, since great memories are really what parties are all about.
