Top Ten Books I’d Rather Be Reading Right Now Instead Of Writing This Never Ending Dissertation…
Well, the post title I went with was a little catchier. Typical for me that I make a big commitment to posting more often on the blog, and have some great ideas for posts, the same month my dissertation is due. Le sigh. Not long to go now though! 😀 Seeing as I can’t actually read these books just yet, I’ll drool over them here instead.
1. This Girl by Colleen Hoover: I’ve read Slammed and Point of Retreat, but I’ve yet to review both on this blog… I’m really enjoying the series so far, and I’m excited to see what CoHo does with the third book. I don’t think I’ve read a contemporary trilogy before, and if I have it was a long time ago. It’s either incredibly smart, or brave, or both…
2. Us by David Nicholls: I have SO many books waiting to be devoured on my TBR, but this was a recent addition and I’ve heard so many good things about it. I managed to get a gorgeous hardback copy for £3.50, and I’d like to read it right now, thank you very much.
3. The Sky Is Everywhere by Jandy Nelson: After seeing BookTube and Stef rave about I’ll Give You The Sun, I finally gave in and bought a copy. Then I won a copy of The Sky Is Everywhere, which I’ve also heard rave reviews about, and I’m reading it for a Babes and Books review, but… I. Just. Can’t. Read. It. Yet.
4. Never Never Part 2 by Colleen Hoover and Tarryn Fisher: I don’t even know how it happened, but I completely overlooked the release date for the second instalment of this mind-bending read. Must. Stay. Strong.
5. It’s Not Me, It’s You by Mhairi McFarlane: I’d been eye-balling this book for a couple of weeks at the local supermarket, and read an amazing review on-line (I forget where, sorry!), which pushed me over the edge and I just knew I had to have this in my life. I’ve a good feeling about this one. And I’d love some light-hearted humour right now!
6. More Balls Than Most by Lara Morgan: This is the next book in my personal development binge, after really enjoying The Good Psychopath’s Guide To Success. I’m getting back into these reads in a big way, so expect more of them on the blog!
7. The Time Traveller’s Wife by Audrey Niffenegger: Let’s not even discuss my abysmal performance so far this year in my Reread Challenge… OK, fine, we will. It’s the middle of May, and I’ve reread one book so far instead of five. One book! I need to be more dedicated to the cause.
8. The Girl With All The Gifts by M R Carey: I picked this up as an eBook for 99p but never got around to reading it. Then I read some pretty intriguing reviews, and spotted a physical copy for £1.99… So I may have impulse bought it, in a little book splurge from me, to me… Let’s just say my haul for Stacking the Shelves will be interesting this month…
9. The Invention of Wings by Sue Monk Kid: I’ve heard of this book a lot, but was never really compelled to pick it up… Until it was on offer for £1.99 and I read the blurb. After reading (and loving) To Kill A Mockingbird, I thought this book seemed like it tackles similar topics – set in the Deep South, slavery, prejudice. Sounds promising.
10. The Bone Season by Samantha Shannon: Another pick I’m going to blame on the bookpushing BookTubers… That and all these books I got for £1.99 were actually part of a 6 for £10 deal at The Works, with 25% off, free delivery, and 18% cash-back. Don’t look at me like that. It’s practically books for free, people.
It’s 12.18AM, and I have work in the morning, so I’m hoping you can forgive the temporary lack of images… I will update this when I get home tomorrow evening, because I really don’t like posting TTT’s without them! Have you read any of these books? Which one should I delve straight into at the weekend?? Don’t forget to link me to your post in the comments!
