Autumn To Be Read

Thursday, 14 September 2017

My 'to be read pile' is always over flowing. I have an addiction to buying books and even though I realise it, I don't want to stop, so I won't.  With Amazon changing the free delivery to orders over £20 it makes it very easy for me to justify another book order when I have to keep making my basket up to £20. So every amazon order comes with a lovely gift to myself and my bookcase. 

Having said that, getting time to read them all is another thing. I've started taking a lot more train journeys over the last few months, so it is becoming easier, but I still haven't got back in to the routine of reading for an hour each night. I have condensed my Autumn reading down to these 6 books which is an achievable amount so I'm not rushing through but I am hoping to fit more than this in if I can. 

I had these two, both by George Orwell from Addyman Books in Hay-On-Wye this summer. I already have Orwell's 1984 and I was struggling to get the matching covers for any of his other books, so when I saw these I had to grab them. I love Orwell's writing and I still can't get over how timeless and relevant his work is so many years later. I can't wait to read both of these.

The Power by Naomi Alderman is a book that has been doing the rounds on social media for a while. I have seen so many people posting about it that it intrigued me to look it up. I haven't read any reviews as I didn't want the story spoiled but from reading the blurb I know its going to be a really interesting read.

I picked this up as part of a 3 for 2, not really knowing an awful lot about it. But after getting home I realised it was the 2nd book in a series. I think it is a stand alone novel so hopefully I won't have to have read the first one to find out what is going on. 

I read the first one of this series a while back hoping for a easy read between two really intense thrillers, I ended up loving it. Rom com isn't my go to genre but sometimes you need some light hearted reading and I'm hoping this one will be the same. 

Again this was in a 3 for 2 and I can't resist a bargain. The blurb sounded really intense and I haven't read a really good thriller in such a long time, I thought I would give this a go. I find some of my favourite books when I riffle through bargain bins or grab the last copy of things when they are in reduced sections so I have high hopes.

What are you reading at the moment?
