Hi everyone,

 

I thought a blog would be a great way to exchange book recommendations as I love reading and writing reviews. I've also started putting pen to paper, and have recently completed a creative writing course. Maybe you'll be reading one of my books down the line!?

 

If you want to share about what you're reading, or anything at all for that matter, let loose and go for it!

Circe - Madeline Miller

My reading of this has been so staggered. I started it way back in mid-December and I'm not sure why I haven't completed it already, I mean I like it immensely. Puzzling.

I Still Dream - James Smythe

This has been a great book, but I think I know where the remainder of the story is going and I'm getting bored.

Miracle Creek - Angie Kim

I thought this might be hard to follow considering there are quite a few characters, but it's not at all. I'm getting so absorbed by it. I think I'll spend the rest of the day reading it! The only thing is, I'm not finding a huge variation in character voices. The plots fantastic, though.

Circe - Madeline Miller

I'm enjoying this so much.

The Things You Can See Only When You Slow Down: How to Be Calm and Mindful in a Fast-Paced World - Youngcheol Lee, Haemin Sunim, Haemin Sunim, Mark Geoffrey Young

Book: Read a book about philosophy or a philosopher, or a how-to book about changing your life in a significant way or suggesting a particular lifestyle (Hygge, Marie Kobo, etc.).

 

I'm reading a mindfulness book and the concept of mindfulness has really changed my life and helped my anxiety so much, so I assume that counts. I'm also studying philosophy at the minute, so I'm reading 2 text books which are concerned with philosophy, plus I've started reading Immanuel Kant's Critique of Pure reason. Do I get extra points!?
