5 Books I’m Loving Lately!

Happy September, friends! Popping in to say hi and take a break from shooting our latest book. It has been a fun-filled summer of creating tons of book content for all of you. The next book will release in Fall 2020. Speaking of books, I have 5 that I wanted to share with you! I hope you enjoy them as much as I do! 

Two Peas & Their Pod Cookbook

Two Peas & Their Pod Cookbook

My friend Maria just published her cookbook – Two Peas & Their Pod Cookbook – and it is AMAZING. There are lots of entertaining-friendly recipes as well. It would also make a gorgeous gift to anyone who loves to cook or bake! 

Entertaining with Disney


Entertaining with Disney

Calling all Disney lovers! Amy Croushorn (who I have admired for years) has written the most beautiful book full of easy-to-follow recipes, gorgeous photography, and hundreds of inspirational ideas for entertaining for Disney lovers. Entertaining with Disney is available for pre-order now and ships at the end of the month. This is also a perfect holiday gift idea! 

Honeysuckle The Little Bunny Book

Honeysuckle The Little Bunny

I had to include one for the kids! This sweet book – Honeysuckle The Little Bunny – is all about a bunny who LOVES to throw parties (right down our alley)! This book is darling, my daughter adores it! There are even little recipes included, and the illustrations are absolutely adorable. The message is also a very sweet one, so this book gets five stars from me! 

Healthy Homemade Dog Treats

Healthy Homemade Dog Treats

As you might know, I’m a HUGE dog lover. We added a second Irish Setter to our family this summer, Sally! I also love to bake so my new must-have book for dog-lovers is Healthy Homemade Dog Treats by Serena Faber-Nelson. The pictures alone are fabulous, but the recipes are scrumptious and healthy for our four-legged children! 

Happy Hand Lettering

Happy Hand Lettering

Last but not least, one for the DIY hand-lettering lover. This is an art that I want to try my “hand” at this fall. I think it would be such a fun way to jazz up invitations, Christmas cards, notes, stationery, etc. Maghon Taylor is the queen of hand-lettering, and her book – Happy Hand Lettering – is such a fun instructional book for those looking to jazz up their own hand lettering! 

I’m going to be starting a little series on my Instagram & Instagram Stories to share more children’s book titles that we are loving in our home, aptly named “Blakely’s Bookshelf” so be sure to follow along on Instagram
