I was originally going to take the plunge and make my Spring to be read pile my first BookTube upload, but I chickened out. Instead, I am blogging about it. At the start of the year, my mum, my sister and I all decided we’d undertake the 2015 reading challenge and as a result I’m trying to expand my reading scope. I’ve got a bit of a mixture of books that I want to read before June so I thought I would share them and hopefully get a few opinions on what you guys think about them! So here they are:
The God Delusion – Richard Dawkins.
I started The God Delusion in November and I am only 168 pages through it. I don’t know what it is, if it’s me or the book but I am struggling to find motivation to finish it. I love having a non-fiction book to read alongside fiction as a book I can pick up and put down as I please. I shall definitely be getting through this before summer hits the United Kingdom!
Lone Wolf – Jodi Picoult
It’s no secret that I love Jodi Picoult, and I’ve had Lone Wolf since it came out in 2012 and I’ve never gotten round to reading it. I met Jodi at a talk she did about her latest book in November and I’ve read all of her books bar Lone Wolf so it’s about time I pick this one up. Lone Wolf was also the first book I added on Goodreads and I’ve made a pledge with myself to get through some of the 221 books I’ve got on my goodreads tbr pile , s this seems like the perfect place to start with that challenge!
The Sun Also Rises – Ernest Hemmingway
I’ve been in the mood for reading more classics recently and I haven’t ever read a Hemmingway, so I though I would pick this up. I love Spain and the bull run in Pamplona so I thought that this book would be the best book of Hemmingway’s to start with. Other than that, I know nothing about the book so it shall be a surprise for me!
Will Grayson, Will Grayson – John Green and David Levithan
I have a bit of a love/hate relationship with John Green books. I loved The Fault in Our Stars but have since read Looking for Alaska and Paper Towns and hated both of them. I think that if I don’t like this one, I shall be giving up on John Green as an author.
Uglies – Scott Westerfeld
I heard about Uglies on BookTube last year and picked up the book then. I’ve had it for over a year and I’ve never gotten round to even giving it a second glance. According to the front cover of the book, Uglies is as good as The Hunger Games and as I loved The Hunger Games, I am sure I will love Uglies also whenever I get around to picking it up.
Chinese Cinderella – Adeline Yen Mah.
I was recommended Chinese Cinderella by one of my uni friend probably over a year ago and I decided to pick up a copy from Waterstones with a my Waterstones points. I don’t really know much about the book other than it’s a true story about a girl in China who is blamed for her mother’s death. I’ve been told to keep tissues at the ready when I am reading it so I shall definitely be reading this when I feel like a good ol’ cry, I do love a book that makes me emotional!
Let me know if you’ve read any of these, what you thought and what you’re planning on reading over the months in Spring!
