Since starting university in September, I seem to have forgotten about my love for reading. I just find that I don’t have the time, with university work and working at the weekends; but, I have decided that I am going to MAKE time to read.
I always found reading the perfect thing for when I just want a bit of ‘me-time’, whether that’s reading while having a soak in the bath, or when I need to wind down, or when I just fancy a break from the internet and social media.
So, I thought what better way to get back into reading, than to add some new editions to my book collection?
I went into the bookshop at my university and saw that they had a 3 for 2 offer on. I haven’t read any of Giovanna Fletcher’s novels and I watch her YouTube videos and think she is such an inspirational woman with everything else that she does, so I desperately wanted to pick up her books! The first one I picked up was ‘You’re The One That I Want’. I have heard great things about this book and it is definitely my cup of tea! I can not wait to give this a read! I was planning on buying the rest of her books, but the university bookshop didn’t stock them, so I am going to do an Amazon order for these later on!
The second book I picked up was ‘The Last Letter From Your Lover’ by Jojo Moyes. I have heard such good things about Jojo Moyes as an author and I still haven’t read ‘Me Before You’, which I do own and will be reading before this one! I have owned ‘Me Before You’ for several years, but I think I was a bit too young to understand and appreciate books like these, so I am looking forward to reading this now that I am older.
The last book that I picked up is the perfect book to keep on your bedside table, or coffee table! This is ‘The Life-Changing Magic of Tidying’ by Marie Kondo. This book has been raved about so much on the internet and when I saw it, I just had to get it. As much as I try and tell myself that I am tidy and organised, I could definitely improve! I am terrible for hoarding clothes and makeup and things that I know I will never use again, but I can never seem to bring myself to throw them away! Hopefully now that I have this book, I can find the willpower to throw everything out that I no longer need or use!
I am really looking forward to getting back into reading again and I hope this post has given you some ideas as to what could be your next read. Let me know of any book recommendations that you have!
