What’s On My Reading List

My reading wish list

My Amazon Wish List is primarily made of books. So. Many. Books. I’ll never get through them all considering the list expands daily. I love seeing what people are reading. I’m obsessed with Emma Roberts’s book club Belletrist but most of the books they read aren’t out here until later this year.

I have so many books to read in my room yet I can’t stop buying them. Nothing thrills me more than walking into Foyles or Waterstones and looking at all the beautiful covers. I tend to carry a book with me everywhere I go. You never know when a traffic jam is going to hit or a train delayed. My top tips if you want to read more or to find the time to read are to carry a book in your bag around with you or if you’re at home, chuck your phone to other side of the room.

The books

Eleanor Oliphant Is Completely Fine. This book is set in Glasgow which is somewhere I really want to visit so that’s a plus. Eleanor is a girl living a very simple life until something changes and she comes face to face with her demons. I can’t wait to get my hands on it.

South and West. I’ve never read anything by Joan Didion, so I’m very excited to start. This book is made up of two excerpts from Joan’s notebooks from the 70’s. She took a long road trip with her husband through America and these are her notes from that trip.

How To Stop Time. I’m a huge fan of Matt Haig. This book has already been bought for a film starring Benedict Cumberbatch. I read anything that Matt does, even his amazing Christmas stories for kids. I can’t wait to read his latest book ‘How To Stop Time’ out in July.

The Rules Do Not Apply. This book is a memoir from the journalist Ariel Levy. Ariel discusses her grief of losing a child, her wife and house. This book is a completely honest account of what she went through. I am a big admirer of her and am looking forward to adding this book to my shelf.

Murder On The Orient Express. Ever since I saw the film trailer for this book I knew I had to read it before I saw the film. I’m a big lover of a murder mystery and obviously Agatha Christie is the queen of that.
