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,
