Even more to be read

My 'to be read' list is getting out of hand and I only have myself to blame. I've been very slow at reading lately and feel like I've been struggling to find time, when all I really need is to pay someone to slap me every time I spend more than 5 minutes trawling Twitter and reading crummy celeb gossip articles. Maybe that way I'll pick up a book more often. 

I recently picked up All the Light We Cannot See by Anthony Doerr and I'm eager to start it, but the story sounds like an emotional one so I'm waiting for a full free day to get properly stuck in. For some reason I'm always drawn to unusual stories based around World War 1 and 2 - this novel follows a blind French girl and a German boy whose paths become intertwined in Nazi occupied Paris. I absolutely loved The Book Thief which carried similar themes, so I think this is gonna be a good one!

I know I'm late to the party but I've also finally purchased How to be Parisian Wherever You Are. I adore Paris - the fashion, the food, the way of life - so for me this was a natural buy. I'm hoping to pick up some tips and learn emulate a bit more of that laid back but chic vibe. It's written by multiple authors and it has a friendly, relaxed tone that is making it a really engaging book to dip in and out of.

What have you got lined up to read next?


  1. I'm just like you - I've really got into reading recently! Which is why I shouldn't be reading this post, oops! Love the sound of all the light we cannot see - I've heard good things about it!
