I thought I’d continue this post on the subject of books, just because I haven’t talked about my recommendations / reviews for a very long time. I find it quite hard to find time to read books in the term time, so when it’s holidays, I try to cram in as many as possible. But I’ve built up a bit of a stack recently, so I’ll fill you in on the few that I’m reading/have just finished (because I can never just read one book at once).
- Mythos — I haven’t read a book about Greek mythology since percy jackson days, but I was pleasantly surprised at how entertaining Mythos is!
- Hunger Makes Me A Modern Girl — If you’re looking for a good autobiography to read, I’d highly recommend Hunger Makes Me A Modern Girl. A copy of it was lying around my house and one day I just picked it up, and and the next thing I know I’m totally immersed all things riot grrrl – I had a period last year when I was totally obsessed!
- Rules Of Civility — anyone who’s ever talked about books to me knows that Amor Towles is probably one of my favourite authors. Both Rules of Civility (and A Gentleman in Moscow) capture the essence of the times, and have an ability to paint a picture after picture in my mind. Rules of Civility is set in 1920s New York, surrounding the life of my favourite character ever, Katey Kontent. These two books have my highest of recommendations from the past 8 months.
- Grand Days — I got this book for Christmas, and while its size was quite daunting, I eventually found the energy to start, and even though I still haven’t finished, I love its vivid mystery and glamourous-ness. Post world war one is a time that I haven’t really read much about, so it also becomes more and more informative.
I hope you got some inspiration to pick up a book, or even just something to add to your list.
