I’m always on Goodreads or Amazon just looking at all the books I want to read, and most of them I’ll forget about, but these are some of the books I really can’t wait to own/read. I’m a pretty slow reader, and I’m 4 books behind on my Goodreads book challenge (20 books this year), but I will get there eventually!
1. Pretty Honest by Sali Hughes – I saw this a little while ago in Waterstones and pretty much immediately wanted to buy it, but I had no money to spend on books at the time. It doesn’t seem like the typical kind of beauty manual/bible where expensive products are reviewed and ridiculous skin care or make up routines are suggested. From what I’ve read about it, and after having a flick through it, it seems like it has some actual genuine advice that isn’t just a trend or the next big thing in beauty.
2. How To Be Both by Ali Smith – To be honest I really don’t know much about this book at all, except that I saw it one day and then decided I wanted to read it. So read it I will.
3. Eat: The Little Book of Fast Food by Nigel Slater – A recipe book isn’t something that you normally just sit down and read, but the recipes in this one seem to be completely different to the meals I cook that I think I could just spend ages going through it anyway. To me Nigel Slater has always been one of the more interesting tv chefs, and while the ingredients he often uses aren’t the kinds that you’ll just having sitting in your cupboard, he does encourage creativity, which is needed to come up with meals that you really love cooking, eating and sharing.
4. Any of the Leon recipe books – I once looked inside the Baking and Puddings cook book when I was in TK Maxx and now I want them all. The covers are really striking too.
5. The Islanders by Christopher Priest – “A tale of murder, artistic rivalry and literary trickery; a chinese puzzle of a novel where nothing is quite what it seems; a narrator whose agenda is artful and subtle; a narrative that pulls you in and plays an elegant game with you.” (Amazon) This is the quote I read that really makes me want to read this book.
6. Nights at The Circus by Angela Carter – I’ve read The Bloody Chamber by Angela Carter and I love her writing style, so this is definitely on my wish list. It seems like it’s a fairytale-esque kinda book.
