Books & Reading


I have been super busy lately with being back at uni and this past week has been hella busy. I attended the most beautiful and fun wedding on Friday, quick recovery then out to an engagement party on Saturday and out for dinner and cocktails on Sunday. So I am exhausted but wanted to put this post together.

We all know I love nothing more than cosying up with a cup of tea and a good book. So, I thought I’d share some of my Goodreads TBR list. This list isn’t as long as it could be because I do try and keep it concise in the hope I’ll catch up with it. That said, there are currently 38 books on the list but I’m just going to share a few that I am most excited to get my hands on.

Only Ever Yours – Louise O’Neill

Baby girls are no longer born naturally and women are bred with the purpose of pleasing men. This book gives me a The Handmaid’s Tale vibe and it’s a fairly new addition to my list. It sounds intriguing and I think it’s going to be tough to put it down when I get into it.

The Orphan’s Tale – Pam Jenoff

There’s something about the world wars that really interest me. I was a bit of a history geek at school and I always reach for books set around them. This book is set during WWII and focuses on a shunned girl who gets pregnant by a Nazi. This came up as a recommended title after I read Orphan Train by Christina Baker Kline at the start of the year which I really enjoyed and would recommend. I hope The Orphan’s Tale lives up to expectation.

Tell Me No Lies – Lisa Hall

I don’t actually know that much about this book but I have high hopes following on from Lisa Hall’s first novel, Between You and Me. It was a book that had me gripped from the start and I couldn’t put down. The ending was a huge plot twist and definitely gave me a book hangover so I’m hoping this will have the same level of suspense and excitement.

The Last Anniversary – Liane Moriarty

My love of Liane Moriarty is no secret. She’s written, to date, seven books and I’ve read five. She has never let me down and her stories are always full of drama and suspense while being weirdly relatable. Her books are fairly easy to read so I’ll probably pick this one up when I’m up to my eyeballs in uni stress and just need a break.

The Hate U Give – Angie Thomas

This is the book on my list I am most excited about. A friend read this recently and has let me borrow it so it’s the next book I’m going to read. Starr lives in a rundown neighbourhood but attends a fancy school. She witnesses her friend’s murder. I’ve only heard good things about this powerful book and I think it’s deep with meanings and is definitely going to make me feel all kind of things.

Please let me know your opinions on any of these books if you’ve read them or hit me up with more recommendations.. I’m always on the lookout!
