The Electric Kool-Aid Acid Test (Tom Wolfe)
This is one of my all time favorite novels. For the young, wild and free.

Just Kids (Patti Smith)
A spellbinding celebration of life and devotion that inspired me to my very core.

The Essential Rumi (Rumi)
What can I say? Rumi was just so entirely tuned into the harmony of the universe.

Animalium (Katie Scott & Jenny Broom)
I love the largeness of this book, the amazing illustrations and its subject matter—the animal kingdom! It makes me feel like a kid!

The Book of Symbols: Reflections On Archetypal Images
It was love at first sight for me and this book. This is arguably the most ultimate of coffee table books.

A Woman Speaks (Anaïs Nin)
I love Anaïs Nin, and this book is a great introduction to the main themes in her writing. Notably: the struggle for wholeness, the artist as magician and experiencing our lives to the fullest possible extent.

New Tab (Guillaume Morissette)
My best friend’s first novel. An instant classic.

Coeur de Lion (Ariana Reines)
I feel dangerous and alive when I read Ariana Reines, and you will too.

The Diary of Frida Kahlo: An Intimate Self-Portrait
I would live inside the pages of this book if I could.

Wendy (Walter Kaheró:ton Scott)
This is a little bit of Wendy inside each and every one of us.

The Native Trees of Canada (Leanne Shapton)
There is something so special about this book and the way it makes me feel.
