There is nothing like a pile of books to start the New Year with and I’ve been lucky enough to be gifted a fair few for my birthday and Christmas that I’ve yet to read. January has been a tiring one, with my new nutrition and fitness regime so I’ve not managed to read much this month! I normally read before bedtime – but I’ve been gone as soon as my head hits the pillow this month. So my reading list is still canny big!
I used to love the film version of this when I was younger – you know the one with Winona Ryder, Claire Danes, Susan Sarandon and Christian Bale? Such a tearjerker, right?! Well I’m ashamed to say I’ve seen the film about five times and never once read the book. So here it is.
The Book Thief
I saw this advertised as a film at the end of last year but never got round to seeing it. It wasn’t one that Andrew thought he’d be into and I got too busy to go see it on my own or with a friend. So I decided to get the book instead – any maybe if the film is on a plane I’ll watch it!
The Paris Architect
This book was on the book club reading list last year, but when I went to buy it from Hatchard’s at St Pancras, the last one had just been bought. Timing. Luckily I got it for my birthday from Andrew’s brother and it’s been on my reading list ever since.
Big Little Lies
I’ve read a couple of Liane Moriarty’s other books (The Hypnotist’s Love Story, The Husband’s Secret) and really enjoyed them – just as a little down time from some heavier reads. Suffice to say they’re pretty easy going but this has got a bit of murder thrown in, so it must be a little bit interesting…
So that’s my February reading list – I am QUITE sure I won’t get them all ready (despite how many hours I’ll be sat on a plane this month) but it’s nice to have a good list to get stuck into.
What are you reading at the moment? Any recommendations?
