Olli Ella Reading ListCurated and reviewed by our very own Olli Ella team around the world!
The Summer Garden by Paulina Simons
“The third book in the series The Bronze Horseman, this war-torn lover's story has been an amazing distraction from the world outside. In fact, reading this series for the 3rd time and how this young couple survive war in Russia and migrate to America to have a baby has put perspective on how determined we can be. If you’re looking to get lost in a love story that’s certainly not ordinary, then this series will give you that.”
At Work by Annie Leibovitz
“The ultimate coffee table book, Leibowitz, renowned photographer, takes you on a journey of her mastery with photojournalism, studio work, photographing celebrities and athletes. And if that doesn’t excite you, there’s also some great ‘behind’ shots of Arny from the 70’s in Africa.”
Breath by Tim Winton
“The quintessential Australian author, Tim Winton is never short of a good story and this one is a personal favourite. A coming-of-age adventure, book and now film starring and directed by Simon Baker, Breath will have you nostalgic for small surf towns and idolising characters.”
Zakka Embroidery by Yumiko Higuchi
“There’s never been a better time to craft than now and this Japanese style embroidery book is nothing short of inspiring. An absolute genius with a thread and needle, Higuchi can and should be compared to an artist with the creations he makes. This simple one and two colour embroidery book is perfect for those wanting to create a little homemade gift.”
