Weekly Reads | Herbs + Strong Girls

Libraries have been a bit of an obsession of mine since…well, forever. I’ve been known to walk in with a reusable shopping bag and come out with that bag filled with books. This past year I started grabbing a book here and there to read to the girls at bed time. This quickly increased to three of four new books each weeks because their attention flips so quickly.

Since reading is a huge form of self-care for many people, I thought I would start sharing our favorite weekly reads with you all.

For Mama

Herbalism is a passion of mine and something that has been on my mind lately. I think continued research and education is so important and I like to grab a few books here and there to refresh my memory and learn more.

An Herbalists’s Guide to Formulary


Holly Bellebuono is one of my favorite authors when it comes to herbs. I really enjoyed reading this book and took so many notes from it. If you are looking to create your own formulas for supporting your health with herbs, I definitely recommend giving this one a read.

The Witching Herbs


I can’t resist a witchy read. There is some fascinating lore and history about different herbs that I learned from this read. I wouldn’t say it’s an herbal must-have, but I found it really entertaining and enjoyable.

A Witch Alone


Speaking of witches, this is a book that I received as a gift for Christmas but I just started diving into this month. This is a book for those who are looking add to their solitary spiritual practice. This isn’t really a book you can just speed your way through (it actually recommends starting on a new moon), so I haven’t finished it yet, but I will keep you guys updated as a work through it.

For The Girls

When picking books for Finley and Loxley, I often just grab what stands out to me. I love getting them books at the library because it allows me to test drive the books before purchasing them. We own so many books at home, which

Dear Girl


I couldn’t get enough of this book. I love the message of strength and self respect it sends to little girls and it has the cutest illustrations. It was so fun to hear Finley relate to the story and say, “I do that!” throughout the entire book. If you have a girl you need to get this book.

Wild + The Little Gardener


Emily Hughes is truly a treasure when it comes to children’s books. I instantly fell in love with both of these books and had to buy them. Both the art and writing are so captivating and the stories are heart melting. I can’t wait to read more from this author.
