Book Wishlist

I barely have time for books, which is one of my biggest regrets as I used to be such a bookworm. To me a book is something that allows you to use your own imagination whilst enjoying someone else's creativity... I often try to read on holiday, although last week I focused more on school work and TSA revision than anything! 

I'm currently reading 'The Undercover Economist Strikes Back' by Tim Harford, which I know is rather specific but his writing is amazingly good and explains sometimes quite complex economic theories in such a way that's super easy to understand - both of his books in the series are good, I'd highly recommend them.

Of course, at the moment I'm focusing on reading more 'academic' books but there's nothing I love more than a good girly book and there has been an ever increasing list on my phone's notes that I thought I'd share them with you guys as well; hopefully then I can add more from your recommendations! 

1. Billy and Me at Christmas by Giovanna Fletcher - I read Billy and Me during the summer, and having not been warned about the change in tone halfway through, the book had me in floods! Despite that, I thoroughly enjoyed it and really understood why Gi's first book had such a huge hype surrounding it (and not just because she's Tom from Mcfly's wife!!). I can't wait for Christmas, and so I think this book will be a must buy... In fact it came out today! You can get it from Amazon here.

2. You're the One that I Want by Giovanna Fletcher - a full length novel this time (the Christmas one is a short story!) and the second of her books. I read a sampler of this at the end of Billy and Me and kept meaning to buy it - I just keep forgetting - because what I read seemed so intriguing and such a good story line. A classic love triangle never got more interesting than this, from what I can tell! Get it here.

3. Me Before You by Jojo Moyes - I've heard many things about Jojo Moyes, both good and bad, but her writing style and themes seem right up my street so I'd thought I'd check some of her books out. Having read the description on Amazon (buy it here), this one seemed the best for me and went straight on the list. Let me know if you've read it/any of her books!

4. Shopaholic to the Stars by Sophie Kinsella - one of my all time favourite authors and series, due to the fact I relate to Becky so much (and not just by name!). It may not be the most difficult read, but this series is a must for me and I love every book she's written about Becky so I can't wait to get my hands on it. Find out more here.

5. Girl Online by Zoe Sugg - Of course this is on my list; Zoe is not only a huge inspiration to me, she was one of the first YouTubers I ever watched and she seems like the loveliest person. What's more, this story seems great and I love the fact that Zoe is using her platform to increase awareness of anxiety - I can't think of the number of people she's helped by airing her own experiences... and now she's written about a character with it in a positive light. A classic romantic story line, I can't wait for this to come out. Pre order it here.

6. Paper Towns by John Green - the next John Green book to be made into a film is this one, and I have heard some darn good things about it. If it's anything like TFIOS I'm going to be hooked, and there's nothing better to prove it's a good author than that. You can buy it here.

I know I've included all links to amazon, but it's often the place I find the cheapest books - plus the kindle prices are often even better! I can't wait to start reading these, and don't worry, I'll be sure to keep you up to date! 

Have a good weekend,
Becky xx
