Sadly these past few months I have had to stop participating in 'The Year in Books' organised by Laura at Circle of Pine Trees, due to time restrictions. Yet I feel now would be a good time to join again, especially as cosy winter evenings are perfect for snuggling up with a good book. My reading list recently has been quite varied as always. A favourite in the past few months has been 'Where She Went' by Gayle Forman, the follow up to the amazing young adult novel 'If I Stay'. This was one of those books I did not want to end but hungrily read on as I needed to know what happened. Forman is definitely an author I will be reading again very soon and encourage anybody to try, even if like me you are not a young adult.
So what will I be reading in November? After a recent trip to the library I returned armed with books I have been wanting to read for a while. First up is the tale of an adventure up the west coast of America. 'Wild - A Journey from Lost to Found' by Cheryl Strayed has been dramatised as a movie recently but as always I have chosen to read the book first. Having loved books like 'Eat, Pray, Love' I am sure 'Wild' will be spiritually uplifting for me as the reader as I join her on her incredible journey. Next up this month is an autobiographical journey with a lady I have admired for many years, Jo Whiley. Over the years Jo has had a big influence over my musical choices and I just love her style and friendly yet incredibly cool way of dj-ing, so am looking forward to reading 'My World in Motion'.
Maybe two books are ambitious but I think it's about time I got back to reading reguarly again and know both of these books will keep me enthralled. What will you be reading this month? Perhaps join in with The Year in Books? Find out more on Laura's blog here.
Until next time, take care.
