This summer has been a summer of reading new books, and falling into a world of fiction again. I've loved reading ever since I learnt how to, and there's nothing more relaxing than disappearing into a fictional world, surrounded by different characters and settings. I'm heading back to university in a couple of weeks, and so I thought it was only right that I stocked up on a few books that I want to read before the year is through. Amazon are doing an amazing 3 books for £10 at the moment. so I made the most of that too.
The first book is actually one my boyfriend has lent me. After reading and loving both The Fault In Our Stars and Paper Towns I really wanted to read Looking For Alaska by John Green. I'm a huge fan of John's writing style, and so I am very excited to read this. It's the one I've started already so I'll let you know how I get on. As part of the Amazon deal I got Landline by Rainbow Rowell. Similarly to Looking For Alaska, I've read two of Rainbow Rowell's books already. Fangirl and Eleanor & Park were thoroughly enjoyable to read, so hopefully this will be just as good. I also love the spine of this book with the phone illustration. Next up is one I've seen around and about Elizabeth Is Missing. This book sounds both intriguing and heartbreaking. The story is about Maud who is very forgetful, but the one thing she never forgets is that her friend Elizabeth is missing. When I was looking into books to buy I discovered that Emma Healey the author did her master degree at the university I'm currently at, which made me want to read this even more. The final book I bought is We Are All Completely Beside Ourselves. A cover that I recognised, and a title that immediately drew me in meant this was the book to complete the deal. I don't really know much about this book so I'm excited to see what it has in store.
Have you picked up any new books recently, or read any that you'd recommend?
