The Weekend Reading List

Weekend Reading List 289

What do you have planned for the weekend? After reading Camille Styles’ guide to the best herbs to grow at home, I’m tempted to visit my local garden centre, this weekend, and get planting. I’m also hoping to finish A Tree Grows in Brooklyn, which I’ve been reading all week and cannot recommend more. It’s such a lovely story!

Whatever you have planned, I hope you have a great weekend ahead. And here are some of the week’s top life and style stories to catch up on, during your downtime…
