I have a small selection of books which sit patiently on my window sill (not quite a bookshelf, sorry Pinterest lovers), and it got me thinking; I need to embrace literature and physical pages more. The digital age means books are being forgotten about and I am truly guilty of this. Although I haven't gone as far as buying a kindle, the only kind of daily written material I read are blogs and occasionally fashion magazines; which most of the time are a complete waste of money, aren't they?
I want to read more and fill myself with fantasy characters and gripping plots and sad endings. So, if you recommend any books, do leave them in the comments below and I'll be sure to check them out.
So, what's on my book s(ill)helf?
Girl Online is one of the most sought after novels written by the blogging queen herself, Zoe Sugg. Again, I haven't yet finished it but so far I am enjoying the ever so slightly cheesy love story. I know there has been a huge questionable speculation due to finding out the book was ghost written but I personally have no opinion towards this.
I reviewed the Blog Inc book a few years ago which you can read here. It's a great little book packed full of tips and do's and dont's of blogging. I really recommend it if you're a new blogger or thinking of starting one and don't quite know where to start.
Street style is one of the biggest modern influences with every day fashion. I love pondering over people's outfits whether it's the stylish girl with the studded shoes at the bus stop, the group of clicky slightly OTT fashionistas crowding around the cobbles of Somerset House or the inspiring fashion bloggers I follow on Bloglovin. This book is packed full of style.
The Listography book is something I picked up in Urban Outfitters a few years ago when I said to myself 'Oh, I'll fill this up in no time'. In consideration to having a busy life, I have undoubtedly forgotten to fill this out as much as I intended to. Woopsie. However it's a great little interactive book.
My Mother bought me the novel If I Stay by Gayle Foreman for Christmas but again, yes you guessed it, I just haven't yet got round to reading it.
The Highway Code? Say whaaaat? I have decided I need to learn how to drive as soon as possible before I become an old lady and find it difficult to get in and out of a car. OK OK, I know I have a long time before that happens but I started learning to drive 3 years ago and then gave it up and I don't quite know why. The thing is, I know HOW to drive but I seem to have forgotten all of the important things such as road signs, rules of the road and manoeuvres. I can do this!
Obviously, naturally, I was going to save the best book till last. I got this for Christmas which is something I said I wanted months before. It's from The Works bookshop and was quite pricey I think but totally worth it. It's got EVERYTHING about Harry Potter in. I guess this slightly relates to World Book Day a bit more?
Hope you enjoyed seeing what books sit in my bedroom. If you have any recommendations, do let me know! Until then? Expelliarmus!
