Autumn Reading List

 I can't be the only one who's just stopped reading in this last couple of years?

I used to be a voracious reader, like, I'd devour a book a day easily.
Some kids used to bunk off school to meet boys or go to town but I once pretended to go to school but sat in the garden so I could finish a book that I had gotten really, really into.

I love aaaall types of books but I don't really blog about books. I don't know why because I LOVE chatting about them with my dad and my friends. I love the classics, I love dark and weird ones, I love a girly chick-lit book, I like books that make you think and books that make you cry. (I don't like autobiographies though...).

I read when I was on holiday and couldn't put it down and I've been reading more and more since coming home. So I thought I'd set myself a little reading challenge. If it's on my blog I have to do it, right?

1. A Quiet Belief in Angels - R.J. Ellory
My dad told me to read this ages ago because I LOVE the book thief and it's got similar vibes, I'm about half way through now and I'm really enjoying. Set in a small town in Georgia, USA in 1930/40s when little girls start being murdered. It has a real effect on the main character and I just have zero idea where it's going!

2. The Ice Twins - S.K Tremayne
My best friend Aisha read me the first few lines of this book and then my mam happened to pick it up for me a few weeks later so I'm very excited to get stuck into this. It's a psychological thriller about a woman who lost one of her daughters and she's now not sure which one it was. Sounds weird and creepy which is perfect for cold, dark autumn nights.

3. The Kind Worth Killing - Peter Swanston
Another one that Aisha read and my mam bought me. How weird is that?! It's Richard & Judy recommended book which, as stupid as it sounds, I really trust. They pick good books. So this is meant to be another thriller about revenge and deceit. kind of Gone Girl-esque, which is just what I'm in the mood for at the moment.

4. The Little Coffee Shop of Kabul - Deborah Rodriguez
I found this in a car boot sale for 20p and I thought I'd give it a home. My mam and nan read it on holiday and said it was a beautiful book. I think it tells the stories of five different women in a coffee shop in the centre of an Afghan war zone and is apparently "life affirming" which might be nice to read on a winters night with a hot chocolate.

5. The Little Book of Hygge* - Meik Wiking
SOZ MORE HYGGE. This isn't a read in one sitting type book which is why I'm still working my way through it. I like to read it while drinking a cuppa, taking a break from blogging/gym/cleaning/doing nothing. I'm going to thoroughly enjoy continuing to read this throughout autumn, making little Hyggelig changes to my life as I do so. And I recommend you do the same.

So not a particularly strenuous list, but baby steps, my friends.

I'd like to get through these by the middle of November. So wish me luck and I'll keep you posted if any of these become the best book I've ever read in my life and omg you have to pick them up. Fingers crossed.

If you've read any of these and can vouch for them please let me know. However, any spoilers and I swear to god I will end you. Any other recommendations will also be much appreciated, honey bunnies xoxo

  5. I love these kinda posts, I'm also writing mine at the moment. I've gone into a reading slump so I am hoping by writing a list of books to read over the Autumn months will motivate me! You have some really good choices in your list, good luck lovely!
