Increasingly, I've discovered I love blogging about books, so heads up - there should hopefully be many more book posts on the horizon. I thought it was about time I made a series about books, so every now and then, when I've had a bit of a book haul (or usually gone crazy at the library), I will write about it here and probably post reviews or brief thoughts when I've finished them. Today I have four books which I picked up from the library a few days ago.
1. More Than This by Patrick Ness: I picked up this book while browsing the teen fiction section as the cover looked familiar to me - I think I'd seen it on Good Reads or in a YouTube video or something. I really liked the cover of this hardback edition too. This book seems to be about a boy alone in his final moments, and about the afterlife, etc after he dies. This books seems pretty mysterious to me but I thought I'd pick it up anyway and see how it goes.
2. The Geography of You and Me by Jennifer E. Smith: This is the one I think I'm going to start with first as I need something to get me out of my little reading slump I've had recently. This seems like a romantic story surrounding ideas of fate and love - two people, Lucy and Owen, who meet with a stroke of luck. From the blurb it looks like they are separated in some way and have to maintain some sort of relationship long-distance.
3. The Rosie Project by Graeme Simsion: I'd heard of this book quite some time ago but haven't picked it up until now. It's not something I'm necessary urgent to read, but thought I might as well. This book is about a professor who hasn't dated much, but suddenly embarks on The Wife Project to find someone he loves. Basically, this is meant to be a bit of a funny, romance novel of a man finding unlikely love. It looks pretty good, so I shall be onto reading this soon enough.
4. To The Moon and Back by Jill Mansell: I'd read Three Amazing Things About You by Jill Mansell so I thought I should probably give another book of hers ago. I had a little look on Good Reads and based on a couple reviews and the story, I decided to get this one. Who knows if it will be any good, but I'll basically read anything these days and try and get something out of it.
So that's my first reading list - hope you enjoyed and do give me your suggestions for books below, as always. xx
