I rediscovered my love of reading this year and I've lost count of how many books I've read in the last six months. I love being able to just lose myself in a different world for a few hours and reading is the way I like to do it. I shared a Book Haul a few months back and thought I'd show you what I've read recently. I did buy a Kindle this year and I've been reading lots on that but there's no better feeling than holding a book sometimes.
This has been everywhere the last few months and it's one of those books that you can pick up at any point and read whatever chapter. There is no right way to read it. Hygge is the art of living life the Danish way as Denmark is often referred to as the happiest country in the world. Hygge is a feeling and this book helps you find the right level in your life. Think candles, cosy blankets and fireplaces and you're onto a winner.
It took me a little longer to actually sit down and read Luckiest Girl Alive but I wished I'd picked it up sooner because it was fantastic. Following the life of Ani Fanelli, the woman with the perfect life, job and fiancé, this book takes you back to a chilling and violent incident that happened when she was at school. I couldn't put this down and swiftly read it within days. Definitely a must read.
If you're female, had enough of sexist bullshit and are ready to take back control, this book is for you. It's witty, hilarious and scarily true. The Feminist Fight Club provides a how to, to dealing with the unequal world. It's sad that we need something like this but better to be prepared for battle than let the penis brigade win! We should all be in the Feminist Fight Club.
So I have a teeny, tiny confession to make. I read all the Harry Potter books for the first time, two months ago. I know, I know, I'll hang my head in shame but for me it meant I could finish The Deathly Hallows and dive straight into The Cursed Child which is frigging excellent. I found it so easy to read, it had me gripped from the start and I desperately want this as a film. Failing that I'll just have to try and blag my way into a show which I reckon will be highly unlikely but here's hoping.
Have you read any of these books yet? Let me know what you think!
