Reading List

Since finishing my masters, I've really got back into reading on the weekends. I find it really hard to do nothing, and always have to be on the go, but reading really just help me just slow down.

So far this year I've read five books;

Never Greener - Ruth Jones
This book was a great way to kick start reading again. It's not well written at all, to be honest, it is trashy but I loved it. I couldn't put it down and think I read this in two days. It's one of those stories where you just need to know what happens to the love affair going on with the character. Perfect holiday reading!

They Both Die In The End - Adam Silvera
My best friend recommended this to me. She said Adam Silvera is similar to John Green, who we all love for young adult fiction. This ending is obvious but I still didn't want that to be the case. You really feel for the characters and don't want the inevitable to happen at all.

Feminists Don't Wear Pink And Other Lies - Scarlett Curtis
This is a non-fiction book about feminism; a collection of memories, essays and entries about everything ranging from periods to sex to relationships to equality. I loved it!

The Language of Kindness - Christie Watson
This is a great book by Christie, almost a diary/memoir of her 20 years as a nurse. The chapters cover everything from pre-birth to old age, discussing the difficulties with nursing now and the struggles nurses face in a time where the NHS is prone to numerous cuts. Heart-breaking and insightful.

Just Eat It - Dr Laura Thomas PhD
I read this book because I've been binging a bit recently and thought this may help. To be honest, it's a good book but I don't think it taught me anything. It's perfect if you are stuck in the dieting cycle, pressured by society and need to break free from that, however I would say this was too basic for me.  It made me hungry as well, just reading about eating!

I have two more books left to read on my 'to be read' pile, and then I'm allowed to go book shopping

  • The  Exact Opposite of Okay - Laura Steven
  • The Forgotten Hours - Katrin Schumann
If you have any suggestions, please let me know!
