    Lit, by Mary Karr. Memoirs are not always the type of book I'm drawn to as I love fiction so much but Mary Karr is so truthful, imperfect and honest in her storytelling that you just want to keep reading more. Luckily, she's got more, which I intend to read when I'm on to my next great book!

    EE Cummings Complete Poems, 1904-1962 One of my prized possessions, received in high school when I was very in to writing poetry. This one has many a many a dog-eared page. He really is one of my all time favorites.

    She's Come Undone

    Just finished another gem by @Lisa_See. She pretty much rocks the house and I loved loved loved this book. Enjoyed the movie and its interesting portrayal. Of course, you'll never get all the book's glory in a movie, and perhaps the movie was a little "light" while the book is quite beautifully deep...I love historical fiction, especially Asian.

    The Folded World by Amity Gaige - seriously beautiful writing...if I devoted my life to writing, I would want to write just like her. Beautiful.(

    Currently reading - really enjoying. Excellent writer. I've got some of her brave spirit, not all, but some!

When ten-year-old Enaiatollah Akbari’s small village in Afghanistan falls prey to Taliban rule in early 2000, his mother shepherds the boy across the border into Pakistan but has to leave him there all alone to fend for himself.

    I finished this awesome book as the rain fell down in torrents, all cozy with the puppies - @alignbetween- #webstagram

    This one I keep around. Eastern Body Western Mind is way more than self-help. It's an inside look into the body and mind. Weaving the Jungian archetypes with the Chakra system, blending the eastern and western modalities for psychological, spiritual and integrative insight into who we are and who you may be.

    Well, you might not want to "curl up" with this one exactly but...Neil Strauss rocks as a totally relevant journalist and writer. Everyone might want to read something like this. Entertaining, fascinating yet lets you know some realities may be closer than we think. Why not be prepared?

    I really enjoyed this collection of short stories by Miranda July. Fresh and raw. I like her website too:
