Growing up I used to love reading, I used to re-read my favourite books multiple times a year and then do it all over again the next year. Back in my parents house, I had a full bookshelf full of books which I refuse to let them throw away. Here in London, I keep all my current favourite books or ones which I have picked up while living here.
How many times did you read a book from front to back last year? With the likes of social media and online magazines, we often forget to pick up a physical book and read it. I will admit that I am one to read on my iPad, especially if I just download a book - such as the Divergent series which I read within about a week as became obsessed.
In the past few months, I've read some brilliant books such as Not That Kind Of Girl by Lena Dunham and Man Repeller by Leandra Medine. I'm currently reading Us by David Nicholls, but it makes me sad that it's a hardback and impossible to carry around with me. I'm not fussy with the genre, I just like a book which captures my attention enough for me to finish it all the way through. I'm all for a crime thriller, half of my book shelf consists of those but at the moment I also keep researching books all about the mind and body, which is why I look the website Mind Body Green so much.
The list of books what I currently want to read is never ending but here are a few...
- The Girl On The Train by Paula Hawkins
- Elizabeth is Missing by Emma Healey
- The Goldfinch by Donna Tartt
- The Rosie Project by Graeme Simsion
- Before I Go To Sleep by S J Watson
- Thinking, Fast and Slow by Daniel Kahneman
