26 Books & Summer style love

My bookshelf is feeling all filled up and happy these past couple of weeks ever since I discovered this secondhand bookshop inside Ace Hardware (of all places!). It now boasts some more new book titles I got at a dirt-cheap price, which I plan on devouring all summer and the upcoming month of Ramadan. This summer has been pretty hectic and I can't wait to finally have some quiet time to rest and go back to my love for the printed word. 

I'm currently halfway through Sophie Kinsella's The Undomestic Goddess by the way. I hope I get to finish one of my New Year's goals: Read atleast 26 books before I turn 27 this December. Fortunately, things seem to be looking up in this department and I couldn't be happier.

Speaking of summer, Felissimo's catalog got me so in love. I am digging their summer collection's cardigans, loose tops and long skirts a lot! The texture, styling, colors and practically everything about their photographs are so laid-back, relaxed and fun. This is exactly what summer is all about.
Are you enjoying the summer season? :)

  1. So jealous of all your new books! I'm a fan of chiclits too. It's just that it's very hard for me to read these days because I always end up snoozing after 10 minutes of quiet reading. I'm such a lazy prego. :)

  4. What! Second hand bookstore inside an Ace Hardware? What strange placement! Then again, I was pleasantly surprised to find a permanent Top Pot donut truck outside of my local hardware store... hehe.

    I like your reading goal. Man, I used to read all of the time. Maybe I'll find some time one of these days!
