My reading list (Autumn, 2020)

Good evening! Or morning or afternoon, depending on when you read this. So, I thought I would share a (very short, succinct) list of what’s sitting on my kitchen shelf, in case there are any mama bears looking for some reading inspiration, especially as 99% of what I read nowadays is parent-focused (this includes the scientific reading and of course the lighter reflections on the ups and downs!).

Finished and would definitely recommend:

MumLife by Louise Pentland (mainly focused on Louise’s life but definitely shed some relatable laughs and cries!)

My Wild and Sleepless Nights by Clover Stroud (an honest, exceptional and just damn beautiful depiction of what being a mum is really like)

The Power of Showing Up: how parental presence shapes who our kids become and how their brains get wired by Daniel J. Siegel MD & Tina Payne Bryson (I loved this book so much and it had such an impact on how I parent, I am not sure how to put it into words)

No-Drama Discipline: the bestselling parenting guide to nurturing your child’s developing mind by Daniel J. Siegel MD & Tina Payne Bryson (did I mention that I love these two?!)

On my list to start this month:

Self Compassion by Kristin Neff

Writing Motherhood: A Creative Anthology by Carolyn Jess-Cooke

I Am, I Am, I Am: Seventeen Brushes With Death by Maggie O’Farrell

The Whole-Brain Child: 12 Proven Strategies to Nurture Your Child’s Developing Mind by Daniel J. Siegel MD & Tina Payne Bryson

The Montessori Toddler: A Parent’s Guide to Raising a Curious and Responsible Human Being by Simone Davies
