To read is to live a thousand lives.

Today I thought I would take some time to show you guys what I do best. Books. This is a list of the books I am currently desperate to read. I currently have over 100 books in my Amazon wishlist, as well as around 20 sat in my bedroom waiting to be read. These are the first 6 I came across whilst deciding on which ones to share with you guys and are in no particular order. I was going to write the blurbs but instead I have given you the links to Amazon, where you can have a quick read yourselves if you'd like! 

The Fault in our Stars£3.85
I'm pretty much following the hype on this one. So many people have mentioned this book and now that it's been made into a film, I'd like a chance to finally give it a read. 

The Bane Chronicles - £12.42
If you're a Mortal Instrument fan, then you'll know that Magnus Bane is the mysterious and magnificent warlock who has lived 300 years of stories. The Bane Chronicles are 10 short e-books, which will eventually be published into a paperback, telling the magical tales of what us MI fans are desperate to know. 

Dear Thing - £3.50
I love books like this, stories that can so easily be someone's life. I saw this in WHSmiths (I should never be let in book shops unattended) and knew straight away that I wanted to delve into these pages.

Burned - £6.01
The last book of this series left on such a cliffhanger that I am climbing the walls waiting for payday so I can purchase the seventh book of the series. This is an amazing collection of books and I have been hooked since the first page. 

Beautiful Creatures - £3.85
This has been on my bookshelf for some time now and having enjoyed the film, I'm really looking forward to giving this a read! I love fantasy books and this seems like it's going to have me hooked.

The Goldfinch - £4.49
Again, I'm kind of following the crowd on this one. There is a lot of hype around this book at the moment which has caused me to want to see for myself if it is all it's cracked up to be. I don't think there's anything wrong with reading what everyone else is reading because no two people read the same book. 

I am always, always open to recommendations so please feel free to comment below if you think you have read something that I'd like. I'll pretty much read anything!

  1. TFIOS is definitely worth the read! I finished it a while ago, I'm sure you'll like it. :) I'm currently eyeing Will Grayson, Will Grayson by John Green, I can't get enough of his work.

    1. I haven't heard of him? I might have to look him up! Thanks for the recommendation :)

  2. Everyone should read The Fault in Our Stars! It's such a beautiful book and the film did a very good job in doing it justice. Dear Thing looks and sounds like a book I'd like to read. I'm currently reading the Hush, Hush series. It's quite an easy read and I think it's going to be made into films in the future! xo

    1. Oo I haven't heard of that series? I'll look it up! I will literally read anything!

  3. I couldn't read TFIOS... don't like being upset haha Will check out the rest though :D Gisforgingers xx

    1. I always cry at books :P It's about the only time I do cry!
