“We lose ourselves in books but we find ourselves too…”
I love reading and I adore books. One glance at my banking app would make you quickly realize that I spend most of my money on books, plants and art stuff, in that order. I love seeing what other people are reading so I thought it’d be fun to share what I’ve read so far this year. Here goes.
Jane Austen – Pride and Prejudice
I decided it was time to read this classic and although it took me four months to read (!!!) and I’m pretty sure I restarted it at least once because I didn’t know what was going on, I enjoyed the second half immensely. Plus, it’s a classic, so I thought it totally necessary to read. I plan to work my way through all of Jane Austen’s novels, so this was a good start.
Nancy Tucker – The Time In Between
This book really changed my perspective on eating disorders and I found it highly informative.
John Green – Turtles All The Way Down
John Green is an actual genius, and as all his books always are, this book is amazing. It’s relatable and made me weep. (I can’t be the only person who cries more for books than for movies?)
Corban Addison – A Walk Across The Sun
This book opened my eyes to the huge issue that is human trafficking and how it may be happening under our noses without us even knowing about it. I found it gripping, and it finished me emotionally. Out of all the books I’ve read this year, I’d recommend this one first.
JoJo Moyes – Me Before You
I’ve never cried so much reading a book. It’ll play with your emotions in ways you didn’t think possible. You’ve been warned. (Read it anyway).
JoJo Moyes – After You
And so the emotional journey continues. Some parts were a bit slow compared to the first book. Still made me bawl my eyes out. Need I say more?
I’m currently reading The Sun Is Also A Star by Nicola Yoon, and I’m really enjoying it. Plus, I hear they’re making a movie!
