Lately I find that just about anytime I sit down with friends for a leisurely hang out (and a few rounds of summer water) eventually the conversation turns to some sort of witchy mysticism. Okay in all honestly, it usually starts with a conversation about what's happening on instagram, then goes to a convo about what's happening in our current skin care routines and then after the 2nd or 3rd drink it goes to the writers, poets & musicians that are taking our magical thinking a little higher.
And, since it's summer time and I'm pretty sure half of us have at least one more beach weekend or lake day left in us before fall comes (especially for us girls in the South, we've got months left really) I've put together a quick little reading list to round out your summer.
In truth, every book on this list is on my "must read all the time" list, not just for the summer - these are the tried and true books that keep my head in check when I go a little astray in my thinking and then there's a few new goodies that are quickly make their way into that list.
My sister, btw, after a night of summer drinking with her friends bought like 10 copies (on my Prime account) of #6. She bought them to give to each of her housemates and late night friends and then texted me at 2 a.m. to tell me so (she put her cc # in my Prime account if you're wondering) ... anyways it's kinda the type of book that's so good to read with your besties. The next day she asked what else is on my reading list. It was the second time in a few days I'd given out that list so I figured if she wanted it, you might too - and although you might do your book buying while sober, adding to your mystical reading collection during regular daylight hours or after a boozy night with your best people is kind of never a bad idea.
