With books being such an essential part of any home, we asked our Editor for a few reading suggestions that she’s sure you’ll love. So grab a blanket, lots of squishy cushions and, with this lot, you won’t need to leave the house until Spring…

The book that I go back to again and again...
The Goldfinch by Donna Tartt
This is a book that has stayed with me and I still get chills just thinking about it. It’s the tale of a young man’s life and although some of the subject matters are quite mundane and domestic, Tartt paints them so richly. The characters are so rounded and the tale’s full of heartbreaking twists – it’s just fantastic. It’s one to re-read again and again at different stages in life. 
 

The book that inspired the girlboss in me...
The Woman I Wanted To Be by Dianne Von Furstenburg
DVF is an empowering role model and the poster ‘girl’ for strong business women everywhere. Aside from her savvy business acumen that birthed a multimillion-pound company, it’s her attitude that’s a real inspiration. Dianne has been a princess (yes, an actual princess), partied with Andy Warhol at Studio 54 and continues to be super glamorous well into her 70s. Every ambitious girl will take something away from this autobiography.
