“What to read…what to read?” is a question I often ask myself, despite having a shelf full of books I could read or books I could read again. Now I’ve finished reading set texts for three years, I’m finally free to read what I want when I want and here’s what I’m hoping to read as soon as I can.
A Good Girl’s Guide to Murder by Holly Jackson
I’ve heard a lot about this book. It’s a book about a murder, a final project and discovery along the way. Reviewers have billed it as similar to One of Us is Lying, a book I have yet to complete because I started it a long time ago, had other things to read because of uni and completely lost interest in the book. That being said, I’m interested to see if all the hype book bloggers and reviewers alike have given this book is true.
Eleanor Oliphant is Completely Fine by Gail Honeyman
I’ve heard a lot about this one, too. I’ve even heard there’s a movie on its way soon. It centres around Eleanor, whose regimented life is turned on it’s head by a simple act of kindness. I downloaded this on my Kindle a while back, intent on reading it, and – I don’t know – I just couldn’t get into it no matter how hard I’ve tried. Of course, I like giving any and all books a chance so I’ll read this one…eventually!
It’s Not You It’s Him by Sophie Ranald
I love a good rom-com, I’m not afraid to admit, and this fits the bill. I’ve already downloaded a sample of another of her books on my Kindle and, honestly, I can’t wait to get into this book.
Am I Ugly? by Michelle Elman
I followed Michelle Elman (a.k.a Scarred not Scared on Instagram) on social media a few months back, after my sister directed me to a post of hers on Instagram, and that started my fascination with her. She’s all about loving your body, scars and all, and (as someone who has hydrocephalus like Michelle) this was exactly what I needed. So, when I found out she has a book which details her journey to body positivity, I knew I had to read it. I’ve started reading it already and I’m intrigued to read on, even though the first few chapters broke my heart.
These are just a few of the books I want to read (I could’ve listed a lot more, but I didn’t want to bore anyone). I’m always open to your recommendations so let me know what you’ve read and loved or, alternatively, let me know what’s on your TBR list.
