Day 10: Geek Chick and The Books.

Today, I thought of sharing the books I’ve been reading since the beginning of this year, but also some of the books on I’ve recently added to my  ‘To-Read List’.

On my GoodReads  page you will see that I made it a personal goal to read 100 books this year. I’ve read 20 so far, and accordingly to the App, I’m on track. Yay for me!

When I was young, during my summer holiday especially, I would have rather be somewhere in the shades, reading a book than playing let’s say – computer games . That was me most of the days.

I owe this to my teachers again – they instilled in me this necessity of the human kind – to know more, to discover more.

And today, I am sharing  it with you. 

 

My To-Read list for this month: 

 

 

I’ve read the following books since the beginning of the year. These are the ones I really loved.

1. Where She Went (If I stay #2), Gayle Forman.

I’ve read the first book few months back, and I needed a break before reading the second instalment. Why I needed a break? Because it was heart-wrenching. I was a mess when I finished it. And the second one did not let down. I laughed, cried, cringed, got annoyed. Beautiful story. Oh, and if you haven’t read the first one yet, I suggest you go ahead and do it. Best.Money.Spent.

2. Outliers: The story of Success, Malcolm Gladwell.

I finished this one yesterday. Not my cup of tea in terms of genre, but I could not put it down. The author puts some things into perspective for me. And what intrigued me the most – and what actually made sense too in my mind – was how influenced we are by the community we live in. It’s a must-read for everyone.

3. Attachments, Rainbow Rowell.

This one was a very odd story, but I found that I could not put it down.. A very different love story, maybe at times went into borderline crazy, but so, so well written. I throughly enjoyed it.

4. The Bell Jar, Sylvia Plath.

A classic obviously, I had never read it before and decided to give it a chance. I was quite impressed with it, miss Plath had a very unique writing style.

5. Sweet Home, Tillie Cole.

YA story, which is one of my favourite genres to read. It’s basically the story of a very smart girl, with no family, who’s afraid of showing herself to the story. It’s a wonderful story, like a hot coffee on a rainy morning.

 

 

What did you read this month? I would love to hear any recommendations! Leave a comment. 

 

Peace & Love,

  1. Really good selection – I am only down for 50 books this, and I think I’m on track…we’ll have to see! I’m interested in reading ‘The Bell Jar’ but I was never sure of Plath…what do you think of it?

    1. 50 books is still very good! :)
      The Bell Jar was an interesting book. I always heard mixed reviews about it, but I found it very interesting. A very personal insight into the life of someone who suffered from depression.
      I love how Plath writes, she keeps it very real and insightful. IT’s like watching a movie at times, haha. very good descriptions.
      I gave the book 3 stars out of 5 on GoodReads.
      Hope it helps!
