Five reads for April

Decorate with Flowers by Holly Becker and Leslie Shewring

1. Decorate with Flowers: Creative ideas for flowers and containers around the home

Spring has well and truly sprung, and everywhere I look I see blossoms and blooms. Decorate with Flowers couldn't have come at a better time; it's packed with ideas for making flowers look their best, whether hand picked from the garden or a shop-bought bunch. Properly lovely stuff.

2. Essays In Love

More than a little obsessed with the intellect of Alain de Botton, this is his one and only novel and I'm desperate to read it. It's on my shortlist for my next book group pick, but I fear I may end up reading it before then.

3. Kinfolk Volume 11

It's Kinfolk time again; volume 11 is the Home issue so it's bound to be a goodie.

4. Brilliant Biscuits: Fun-to-decorate biscuits for all occasions

How cute are these beautifully decorated biscuits? I'm particularly enamoured with the forest foxes, toadstools and little squirrels. Brilliant, indeed.

5. The Simple Things - April issue

My second piece for The Simple Things is out now, in issue 22 (the April issue), featuring three easy Easter makes.

What are you planning to read this month?


  1. I love Alain de Botton. I've read a few of his books and they are so simple yet so powerful - you feel like he can see inside your head and make sense of things!

  2. love kinfolk and the simple things :)

  3. I'm looking forward to my biscuit book turning up so I can get baking! x

  4. I was going to say the same as Jess! I'm really exited for the biscuit book to arrive so I can bake with Wilf, it looks so fun! x

  5. I need to spend a bit more time reading lovely magazines, think I need the inspiration!

  6. This is a really good idea. I have lots of stuff waiting to be read but I lose my way with them. Actually making a monthly challenge might help.

  7. Ooh I really like Alain de Botton and haven't checked this one out, so might give it a go. Also loving the Decorate with Flowers books, so pretty! x

  8. Ooh I've never heard of Alain de Botton, I will look him up now :) x

  9. I love The Simple Things. :-) Looking forward to my biscuit book too. I love toadstools! x

  10. Your list sounds nice! I might read about brilliant biscuits :).
