At the beginning of the year, I set myself the target of reading two books every month. What I didn’t realise was just how tough this would be with an ever developing baby and the chaos of work and day to day life.
Perhaps my goal of two books in a four week period was just too optimistic for this busy Mama,however that hasn’t stopped me adding to my ever growing collection of beautiful books and trying to work through the all. Slow and steady wins the race, right?
Wait, what race? When it comes to reading, I’m in no competition with anyone and this, I like this about reading. It’s my own pace and I can enjoy a book for as long as I choose. If I want to relish in every page, it’s my choice to do so. I can choose what and when I want to read and my mind can escape from my every day reality into a deep world elsewhere.
I’ll read anything and there’s no limit to my reading style nor trends. I like fiction but I too enjoy non fiction. I like nature books but I enjoy biographys also. There’s so much material around, it’s real tough to choose just one book to read at a time. Anyway, I’ll list a brief summary of my reading list for this Summer.
So, what’s on my list you ask? Let me show you..
How to fall in love with a man who lives in a tree – Emmy Abrahamson
Thug – Angie Thomas
The book thief (recommended and gifted by my Mum) – Markus Zusak
A Gentleman in Moscow – Amor Towles
I’m excited to get stuck in and long for days sitting out in the sun with a wee wine and some time out to read and enjoy the surroundings. Here’s hoping we get to catch some nice weather and I can grab a break.
Have you caught any of these reads? What’s on your list?
