So we are in the midst of January now, Christmas feels like a lifetime ago and I’m still feeling pretty happy with the goals I’ve made for this year (if you missed what they were you can see them here.) One of those were to read more, to allow myself less screen time and a bit more me time and so far I have been loving it and already on my 4th book of the year.
I thought I’d share the books I’ve read, on my to be read list and what I think of them, as I know quite a few of you are making it there mission to read more too! Think of it like a little book club, where we can share what we think and recommend different books we may not normally go for.
The first three books I have read were
Five years from now – Paige Toon (amazing book, Paige toon is one of my favourite authors, I felt so invested in the characters lives, I may have cried a little at the end!)
Eleanor Oliphant is completely fine – Gail Honeyman (a book with rave reviews, so heartwarming – and something I hadn’t read similar to before with a young woman learning to to cope with childhood traumas.)
Harry Potter and the cursed child parts 1 and 2 script (oh my god, not sure why I waited so long to read this – well I do – I wasn’t convinced by the fact it was a script, but I so quickly forgot and dove head first into the story, brilliant for any Harry Potter fan!)
So now that brings me to my tbr pile, a jumble of different genres that I have in my bookcase that I hadn’t had the chance to read yet, or started one chapter and life got in the way. Next I’m reading – I’m absolutely fine! A manual for imperfect women, I’m a huge sucker for covers – and this jumped out at me, I’m not very far through yet but enjoying that it’s not just me that feels the anxiety, the worries and the stress of a late 20 year old (or a midult as this book would suggest!)
I have a Jane green book on my list, which I know I’ll love as again Jane green is one of top 5 authors! A similar writing style to Sophie Kinsella & Giovanna Fletcher (both again on top 5).
I have the immortalists which was recommended by fellow blogger and friend Jaye! I love reading books that have been recommended to me, as I know the person before me has loved it!
My little reading nook in the bedroom is my perfect corner to relax after work or when J is in bed and delve into a story!
Have you got a to be read list? I’d love to know what’s on it, or if you have any suggestions for when I’m through this little pile!
