At the beginning of this year I set myself to read at least 15 books this year. When I was younger I was an absolute bookworm. I loved to read but as soon as I needed to start learning for languages or read books for university I fell a bit out of love with reading. I felt like there was no time for me to read or I just didn’t want to read anymore after studying for an exam anymore. Thanks to the goal I set myself in the beginning of this year I have found my love for reading again and I now love to end my evening with a little reading session. It’s been one of my favourite things about my evening routine and really helps me fall asleep at night too.

I find new books to read via my social media accounts. I’m quite picky when it comes to the books I like to read, which is the reason I fell out of love with reading before. Once I finish a book, I usually don’t really know what to read next. That’s when I go to my social media accounts and look at what other bloggers such as Chloe, Sophie or Camilla are reading as I know they will be reading books that I will absolutely love too. As you may have seen on my Goodreads account, I still have so many books that I want to read. I actually went to a bit of a minor panic when I finished my last book as I had too many books I could chose from to read next. That’s why I made myself a little list of books that I want to read or finish reading in the upcoming few months.

Call Me By Your Name by André Aciman

I started reading this book in the summer of last year, but never got around to finishing it. I think it mainly got something to do with the fact that I just couldn’t find a peace of mind to take time to sit down and read this book. I ended up laying this book aside back then because my mind just couldn’t comprehend all the beautiful words written down in it. I feel like I am much more in love with reading now and also take time out of my day to sit down and read this. That’s why I am going to try and finish this book in the upcoming months. I’m only 50 pages into this book, so I’m thinking about just starting over as I am sure I don’t remember that much of what I have read in this book.

The Power by Naomi Alderman

This is one of those books that I saw both Chloe and Sophie reading, which is why it piqued my interest. I am still not 100% sure what this book is about as the back cover as well as the Goodreads page don’t tell you don’t much about the topic. The Goodreads page really made me feel like I should give this book a go, which is why I decided to just buy it. I’m super excited to start reading this and will let you know on either Goodreads or in a five favourites post if I’ve loved it!

The Hate U Give by Angie Thomas

Another book that sparked interest is The Hate U Give by Angie Thomas. It’s one of those books that has received so many awards throughout the year. It’s always those books that I like to pick up to read. I feel like this book is going to tell a real story of what is happening in our world on a daily basis. The reviews on Goodreads say that it’s a heart breaking, powerful and eye opening book, which is why I am so curious and excited to read this. Knowing myself, I will probably finish this book in one day. I don’t share too much of this on my blog or any other social media channels, but this is a topic I feel very strong about myself as issues with racism and suppression are also still happening to my friends and lots of other people from all around the world.

Swimmer Among the Stars by Kanishk Tharoor

I picked this book up from my local bookshop back in October mainly because the front cover was beautiful. When I read that it contained multiple short stories, I thought it would be such a good book for me to read, as I wouldn’t feel like I should finish reading this book within 3 days to know what will happen. These short stories are all about 20 or so pages long and I think I have read about three stories so far. So this book is nowhere near finished. It’s a beautifully written book that takes you away to another world. It’s super imaginative and different from everything I have read and mentioned in this post before.

Those are a couple of books I am going to be reading in the upcoming months. I am really looking forward to starting in one of these books tonight before I’m off to bed already.
