“Reading is dreaming with open eyes”
So this weekend I have had a revelation of sorts. I stumbled upon booktube. For those that aren’t aware there are a multitude of youtube accounts created by booklovers dedicated to sharing their opinions and recommendations on the literary works they have read. And it’s quite magical.
I can’t believe I never knew about all of these videos. I honestly feel like an idiot for never looking up a review to a book I had read or intended to read before now.
This is definitely a place I want to be a part of.
If you don’t know I am an English student. I am a lover of books and thoroughly enjoy the experience of delving into a new world on the comfort of my couch with a cup of tea.
Since finding booktube and also joining Goodreads (How and I mean HOW did I not sign up to this app sooner?!) I have a looooong list of books that I’m more than eager to read.
So I’ve decided that today I’m going to share with you the list of books I intend to read in the next few months. This is just the start though, the list will surely continue to grow!
1.After You by Jojo Moyes (I’ve already read Me before you earlier this summer)
2.Only Ever Yours by Louise O’Neill
3. The Secret History by Donna Tartt
4. We don’t know what we’re doing by Thomas Morris
5. A little Life by Hanya Yanagihara
6. Lolita by Vladimir Nabokov
7. The Da Vinci Code by Dan Brown
8.Ctrl Alt Delete by Emma
9. It’s kind of a funny story by Ned Vizzini
10.The Luckiest Girl Alive by Jessica Knoll
I plan on doing reviews on all of these books as soon as I finish them. I really want to introduce these type of opinion posts to the blog as well as film reviews.
