3 Books I Can't Wait To Read
Reading is an escape that I can't wait to get to and sometimes, there really is nothing better than getting lost in a good book.
I've picked up a few new ones recently that I can't wait to get stuck into. I've also got a little shelf that I can keep all of my books on now, which makes them even more exciting don't you think?! I mean, who doesn't love a good bookshelf.
Another thing is that I'm always noting down books that I've seen mentioned online that I'd like to read (I have more than a full page of them listed now), and I wanted to share some of mine too.
GOODBYE, THINGS - FUMIO SASAKI
What caught my eye with this book was the image on the cover. It just looks so peaceful, doesn't it?
I've touched on minimalism before and I definitely wouldn't go as far to say that I'm a minimalist. But this year it has really inspired me and I have got rid of a lot of stuff. I still have lots left, but I'm really happy with everything at the moment & I'm content with that for now.
At the beginning of the book there are a few photos which I know I'll probably look at forever to feel inspired, and the rest is simply words on pages. Looking at the contents, it looks like there will be lots of tips on minimalism, how following this path has changed Fumio's life and about 'feeling' happy instead of 'becoming' happy.
LOVE & GELATO - JENNA EVANS WELCH
Another pretty cool front cover, I just had to pick it up and see what it was all about.
"Lisa is spending the summer in Tuscany, fulfilling her mother's dying wish that she should get to know her father. With the help of her mother's journal, Lisa uncovers a magical world of secret romance, art and hidden bakeries. People come to Italy for love and gelato, someone tells her, but sometimes they discover much more."
This has me at Italy, hidden bakeries and gelato.
ELEANOR OLIPHANT IS COMPLETELY FINE - GAIL HONEYMAN
When I saw this, it had a little book club sticker on it so I thought this must be good. But what really caught my eye was one of the reviews which said "a story about the very worst and very best that humans are capable of... funny, brave and utterly devastating."
I'm very intrigued to read this story to say the least.
If you've read any of these, I'd love to hear your thoughts on them!
