Shoe Dog: A Memoir By The Creator Of Nike by Phil Knight

Fashion and Style Reads

The Woman I Wanted to Be by Diane von Furstenberg

At bluboho, stories keep us connected to one another, and Diane (also known as DVF) gets personal in her book by sharing personal stories from her life, about family, love, beauty and business. She knew who she wanted to be—in her words, “the kind of woman who is independent and who doesn’t rely on a man to pay her bills.” She since became that woman, leaving us inspired to take on who we want to be.

Man Repeller: Seeking Love. Finding Overalls by Leandra Medine

Leandra Medine is your fashion-forward gal with a closet filled with items that would send most men running in the opposite direction, but she never cared (yep, thats our kinda gal). This fashion blogger recounts her most significant memories with her signature sass and blunt honesty. A reminder to celebrate and embrace a world made for women, by women.

Fun and Romantic Fiction Reads

Miss You: A Novel by Kate Eberlen

We are strong believers in what is meant to be, will be, at bluboho. This romantic story is about two strangers who meet briefly as teens, but over the course of sixteen years they cross path plenty of times, until they’re finally brought back together. This book will leave you caught up in the beauty of life and the path it takes you on.

The Ministry of Utmost Happiness by Arundhati Roy

This book takes us on an intimate journey of many years across the Indian subcontinent. An aching love story, where each character has been broken by the world they live in and then rescued, patched together by acts of love and by hope. 

 

Till next Monday,
