Today I thought I would share the books I am loving at the moment. I used to be reading 24/7, I was a complete book worm until I got to my mid-teens, whereas now I tend to read books I can dip in and out of, so here is my current selection.
The first one is called ‘Big Magic’ By Elizabeth Gilbert. This is a sort of inspiring self-help book about being creative and forgetting fear. As quite a nervous person, I love books which have a really positive message about not being afraid and I’m really enjoying this one. I tend to just read a couple of chapters at a time and just really enjoy it! I’m a creative person in terms of art etc but this book isn’t just for painters and artists – its about being creative with your life and choices. I’d really recommend this book as a lovely uplifting read to encourage you without being forceful or patronizing in tone.
I am finally getting round to reading ‘Go Set A Watchman’ by Harper Lee. I asked my boyfriend for this book for Christmas and I just never got round to reading it! I absolutely love ‘To Kill A Mockingbird’ and I have read it so many times. I love the underlying messages throughout the book, and I find the film version with Gregory Peck is a perfect black and white film to watch on a rainy weekend with a blanket and hot chocolate. So I knew I wanted to read the sequel, despite hearing some negative reviews on it – I still want to have my own opinion on it. So far I am enjoying it, but I understand where some of the controversy is coming from already (I don’t want to give anything away for other readers!!) Still, I will definitely carry on with this one and I’ll share my thoughts once I have finished it I’m sure!
Finally, I am reading Jamie Oliver’s new book ‘Super Food Family Classics’. At home, we have all of his other cookery books – they are just brilliant. I really enjoyed the previous super food book but this one is a lot better for me! There are lots more vegetarian recipes and I’ve found myself actually making the meals, whereas with the other super food book , I just loved looking through it – does anyone else love to just look at recipe books?? Anyway, I am really loving this book, not only for the delicious, healthy food but for the amazing pictures, the way this book has been put together is brilliant. So those are the books I’ve been currently reading! Hope you enjoyed reading! X
