Man, reading is hard when I’m back at university. I know I’ve mentioned this like 6723 times before but I feel so guilty when I read things which aren’t related to my degree. Like if I can find a spare half hour to read my book, I could be using it to read The Origins of the Peloponnesian War or Reformation, Europe’s House Divided. Both riveting reads but man, sometimes my brain just needs a break from all the academic jargon.

This post has been in the works for a while as these books have been super spaced out over the last couple of months. We have a mix of thriller, self-help and young adult mystery. I’m hoping to do some reading on yoga and tarot and have a couple of thriller books lined up so maybe my next Recently Reading will be more extensive.

6 Books To Get Hygge With This Autumn

With Autumn slowly rolling in and my newfound attitude of living Danishly, I thought I’d combine two of my favourite things, books and hygge. I love reading, books are one of my ultimate escapes and Autumn is the perfect time to curl up with a good book. I think a really good book is one that makes you want read over and over again and all of these on this list I’ve read at least more than once.

They inspire cosiness and comfort, something relaxing and satisfying. I’ve got a bit of fantasy, a bit of mystery and the handbook of hygge. All perfect for snuggling up with a blanket and losing yourself in for a few hours. I’m just a bit obsessed with Denmark and hygge tbh so I’m throwing it into blog posts wherever I can get away with!

Recently Reading :: A Bumper Edition

It’s been a biggie for books this summer. First I did my week of travelling (lol), followed by some lonely weeks of unemployment and then no wifi so I spent a lot of time reading. I’m so glad I did. Reading is a form of escapism for me as it is for lots of people and I’ve got a real mixed bag this time around. From supernatural to thriller to murder to Denmark, there is lots to chose from if you are looking to add to your reading list!

Recently Reading

I haven’t done that much reading recently. It has been exam times but that isn’t what has stopped me. I don’t have many books that are tickling my fancy. I’ve picked a couple of books up in the supermarket and in charity shops but they are failing to do it for me. I need a book I can get lost in, totally lose who I am in, to completely absorb me. I have been watching a tonne of TV but I just can’t seem to find any books that I want to read.

I’m hoping to source out a few really good read before heading to the USA in June, for the plane and any downtime I may get. So if anyone has any books that you enjoyed, please let me know! Hit me up in the comments or on Twitter because honestly, I’m at in a stale mate when it comes to finding books at the moment.

7 Books You Must Read In Your Life

Picking a favourite book is hard. So blinkin’ hard. I can’t even remember every single book I’ve read and the thought of choosing just one to be my favourite? It’s a mammoth task.

It used to be the sort of question tossed around in school and as I grew up and my reading tastes changed, my favourite book changed. Name any sort of reading trend or genre which has cropped up in the last ten years as being “the best” and I can guarantee you, I was all over it.
