At one point in my life I would devour a book a day, but sadly at the moment grown-up chores get in the way and reading takes me a little longer. That being said, I’ve been trying to prioritise reading in my schedule and have found a little more space, so thought it was about time I shared a little book update.
The Read List:
Harry Potter and the Cursed Child – I actually finished this at 3am after picking it up at a midnight launch, because my inner child Harry Potter fan appears to still be going strong! I won’t say too much on this one to #keepthesecrets, but I will say that I loved it, and will now spend my spare time trying to track down play tickets!
Caitlin Moran’s How To Be A Woman – This was a giggle throughout but strangely empowering at the same time. It’s the first book I’ve read by Ms Moran and am now planning a few more. Full of laughs and plenty of important stuff too, I’d recommend this to anyone who is a woman, and also probably to anyone who isn’t.
Nicola Yoon’s Everything Everything – I loved this, despite not expecting to. It’s not my normal kind of read, but once I was a few chapters in, I couldn’t put it down. It’s a good YA but not too floaty or too much of an airy fairy love story. The plot was exciting, addictive, and one I’d recommend to anyone after a good story to devour quite quickly.
The To-Read list:
Emma Gannon’s Ctrl Alt Delete. I’ve been meaning to read this for ages after going to Emma’s book launch, I’d saved it for my holiday but ended up doing far too much snoozing in the sun and not enough reading! Also on my list are Anna and the Swallow Man, by Gavriel Savit, and Lisa Jewell’s The Girls, all of which I will report back on once I’ve finished!
What are you reading at the moment?
