Books I want to read in 2017
In Christmas 2015 I got a Kindle for Christmas, I love it. It’s been helping me read more. I wasn’t a great one before, however I did like picking up biograpys and reading about someones life. Today I like nothing else then relaxing on a Sunday afternoon with a good book. So in 2017, as part of my me project, I want to make sure I keep reading. Reading books that mean something to me. Books I’ve been inspired to read, one’s I have been wanting to read for a whilst or new books I’m looking forward to reading.
The Little Book of Hygeee by Meik Wiking.
My first book is an inspired one. I have read lots of blogs, news articles about the Danish word Hygee and how it can affect you positively. I’m really into mindfulness currently, so to be able to read about Hygee grabs my atention.
On The Other Side by Carrie Hope Fletcher
This time last year, I read her first novel called All I Know Now. I loved this book and the style of how she answered questions we all ask ourselves. Since then she has wrote On The Other Side, reading a lot of blogs, I’m looking forward to reading it. She has also wrote a novellette called Winter Snow a follow on due to be released in January. She has her second book called All That She Can See to be released this year.
Louise Pentland Wilde Like Me
Louise Pentland is the woman behind the YouTube Channel Sprinkle of Gitter and Sprinkle of Chatter. I have followed Louise’s vlogs, blogs for a long time. Her clothing line with Simply Be, her stationary, her tour DVD I have loved. To hear she’s bringing out a book I cannot wait to read it and for it to be released. I love that she’s a fearce, strong, business minded women and an inspiration to many out there.
The World’s Worst Children and Awful Auntie by David Walliams
I have read many books by David Walliams including Billionaire Boy, Gangster Grannny and A Boy in a Dress. I would love to carry on and read his books. I think he’s creative writer and storyteller. Though these are advertised as children books, I think like Tom Fletcher’s Cristmasaurus any adult can read it too.
Peggy and Me by Miranda Hart
A few years ago I found Miranda’s first book Is It Just Me in a charity shop. I rememeber reading it and not been able to put it down as I loved reading about her and her life. Last year she released her new one, with her gorgeous dog Peggy. So yep that’s another one for the list..
Spectacles by Sue Perkins.
A friend of mine has reommended this book to me on countless occassions saying I will love it. This is good as past books he’s recommended he’s always got it right. I know nothing about Sue Perkins except she was a presenter on The Great British Bake Off.
Wild: A Journey From Lost to Found by Cheryl Strayed
I love love love Gilmore Girls and I am currently reading Lauren Goodmans book, they both mention the book and film Wild: A Journey from Lost to Found. I know its about a woman going on a hike trying to find herself but that’s it. I definitley think I will love it as I found Eat, Pray, Love a book I couldn’t put down. I borrowed it from Michelle, when I first moved down, it came at a perfect time. I’m hoping reading thiss in the year of me, will be good decision like Eat, Pray, Love.
