To be read

I'm hoping to read a lot more this year than I did last year. Although I love books and took a literature degree I find it very hard to concentrate and consistently commit to reading whole novels when I feel stressed and busy. It's so hard to sit back and get into a story when there's stuff on my mind! January will hopefully be quite laid back and I'll be able to rekindle my inner bookworm. 

I've already lined up a few choices for this year's reading list, so I thought I'd share what I'll be devouring and reviewing in the coming month or so. 

The Bone Clocks by David Mitchell - I have to admit I was sucked in by the title and cover but I'm very excited to read this. From the blurb I think this will be quite an adventure, with both political and fantastical elements thrown in. I'm going to start this tonight so watch this space!

The Perks of Being a Wallflower by Stephen Chbosky - I read this coming of age (with a twist) story quite a while ago before the film come out but I got through it so quickly that I didn't really take it all in. I did this with the Hunger Games books and when I re-read them I picked up on more details that made it a much better read. Something's calling me back to this one.

Walking with Sausage Dogs by Matt Whyman - I have an extensive obsession with dachshunds of all sizes and my Auntie got me this book for Christmas. It looks like such a funny, cute read and has received great reviews so this will be a nice change as I don't often read light-hearted material and probably should!

What reads have you got lined up so far in 2016?


  1. The Bone Clocks sounds really interesting - particularly its former of several novella amused into one.

    I need to start making my reading list for 2016!

    1. I have to admit The Bone Clocks is carried over from last September when I bought it because I just haven't had time - can't wait to get stuck in now though. I've got my mindset back in place :)

      Thanks for reading!!

  2. Loved this post! I'm such a bookworm so I love these kind of posts, I'm currently reading Billy and Me by Giovanna Fletcher - it's fab! Perks of being a Wallflower is one of my favourite books its is so much easier to pick up on the important messages second time round!
