We all know how fun it is to peek into someone’s makeup bag, to have a good look at their closet, and even a gaze inside someone’s refrigerator. But, what about peeping their book shelf? We think what people are reading says a whole lot about them. Which is why we’re excited to debut our new series on Mother, On My Book Shelf. Here, we’re asking our mom friends to share the books they can’t put down—from parenting advice to sleazy romance novels—plus, what tomes their kids are reading, too.
First up, welcome Sarah Sophie Flicker, film maker, activist, performer, writer, mega babe, and mother of three. We asked the talented lady to show us her current reads and those of her kiddos. Does your bedside table look similar? If not, maybe you want to stock up on some of these yourself!
