Afternoon wonderful readers, hope you’ve enjoyed yesterday’s slightly controversial review. It’s sometimes difficult to review a book with so many negative opinions surrounded it but I hope I managed it sensitively and objectively. Today there will (hopefully) be another classic book review of Giovanni’s room by James Baldwin, a book I have been struggling with a little, but firstly, a book tag by The Broke and the Bookish; here are my list of top ten books TBR in Spring 2015
1) The Girl on The Train by Paula Hawkins
I have seen so many reviews of this book over the past month both positive and more critical and as always it’s made me want to get stuck in and see what all the fuss is about, and obviously share it with you lovely people
2) Looking for Alaska by John Green
Once again I have heard so many good things about this book and after finally getting round to reading TFIOS I really want to read more from this delightful author
3) Mr. Penumbra’s 24-Hour Bookstore by Robin Sloan
My parents are always pointing out books for me to read and this is one that my mother suggested upon hearing someone discussing it at work (I believe.) Additionally the cover is rather darling.
4) The Last Lecture by Randy Pausch
Once again one from the rents; my Dad is rarely moved by a book but this one he said is a must read. If he suggests a book I know it will be a good’un
5) Love Letters to the dead by Ava Dellaira
I saw a stunning review of this a week or so ago. It’s been one I’ve been meaning to read for around a year but as always I haven’t quite got round to it.
6) We need to talk about Kevin by Lionel Shriver
I saw the film adapatation of this around a little while ago and swore I would get it read. I’ve heard so many good things about it and it’s one of those books you just have to read, and I kind of can’t wait!
7) The Golden Notebook by Doris Lessing
One of my 101 things in 1001 days challenge is to read twenty books that friends have recommended and I’m lagging a little behind on it. I recently saw this featured on an online newspaper article on the 100 books or so that everyone should read. Two reasons to get this little beauty read
8) The Catcher in the rye by J.D Salinger
The next book to be read for my classic book challenge!
9) Eleanor & Park by Rainbow Rowell
I saw a wonderful long read on Buzzfeed regarding this book and it’s really intrigued me to get hold of a copy. The cover is super cute too
10) Finally, The Silkworm by Robert Galbraith (aka J.K Rowling)
For some reason I keep forgetting to buy, beg, borrow a copy of this book but I need to because I have loved everything she has written since my fangirl days of Harry Potter!
So there you go, ten hopefully outstanding books to be read by yours truly this Spring.
