Fall is officially here and there’s nothing I love more than waking up on a Sunday with a gloomy view and pumpkin spice waffles. Not to mention a huge stack of newly thrifted and bargain-bought books.


Lately I’ve been making a lot of trips to Lake Tahoe to see my new friend Emma, and I’m really starting to fall in love with it it and the surrounding forests. There are so many beautiful places in Tahoe, and I haven’t even seen an 8th of it. & My gopro is working again, so I finally am going to be able to start taking some crazy adventure pictures! Should be super useful for what is coming up 🙂


I’ve also obviously rekindled my love for reading and have managed to stack up a pile of 14 new books in the last 2 weeks (???) I have problems.

Since I’ve been reading so much lately & plan to remain holed up in a burrito of blankets and books, I thought I’d share some of my favorites, and some really awesome ones on my to-read-list. I’ve also been getting a lot of questions about some good documentaries, so I’m also going to share those as well as really good films!

Hopefully this list will keep you busy during the cold weather

I’d love to hear what you think of them 🙂

(Most of these books can be found used online at my favorite website Abebooks.com Usually I find books for about 3 dollars, and free shipping. BUY USED BOOKS! Printing books is so bad for the environment.)
