If you'd make a chart of the books I read, I think it'd be a very uneven chart: I sometimes have times when I read a few books per week, while other times I don't touch a book for a month. It's a shame, however, summer is coming! Summer for me means sitting in the sun, sipping a smoothie, and reading a good book. I've made a little list of books I want to read in 2015.
01. The Bees - Laline Paull02. The Circle - Dave Eggers03. The Rosie Project - Don Tillman04. The Notebook - Nicholas Sparks05. The Great Gatsby - F. Scott Fitzgerald06. 1984 - George Orwell07. Flowers In The Attic - V.C. Andrews08. Triptych - Karin Slaughter09. Stalker - Lars Kepler10. The Book Of Unknown Americans - Cristina Henríquez
To explain my choices: I recently bought The Bees and The Circle but didn't have the chance to read them yet - I did buy some new books which I did actually read, so The Bees and The Cirlcle are just sitting on my book shelf, waiting to be read, and I must keep myself from buying more books until I've read those. The Rosie Project is a book I've heard so much about (I see posters about the book everywhere) and I know a little bit about the theme and style of the book and it seems like a book I'd enjoy. I've recently seen The Notebook (yup, only recently, aren't I the worst girl on this planet?) and I want to read the book as well. The Great Gatsby is another book I don't know too much about - I've only read a short plot summary. 1984 is a book that keeps on popping up in my history class and I think it'll be interesting to read about a man, speculating how the future will look (would've looked). Flowers In The Attic is a book I've already read, when I was 9/10 years old. It's part of the Dollanganger-series, a crazy story about 4 children locked up in an attic to save the family money. I enjoyed reading all the books when I was younger and I want to see if I still like them. I've already read Triptych by Karin Slaughter as well, but I really enjoyed reading the whole Will Trent series written by her and it's been so long ago I'm sure I've forgotten all the details. The only book I've ever read that was written by Lars Kepler is 'The Hypnotist', I loved that - I watched the movie as well but I didn't really like that. I would love to give Stalker a go because of the interesting description and my previous encounter with Kepler's writing. The Book Of Unknown Americans is a book I only recently read about: from what I've read it's a book about a Mexican family moving to America to save a sick daughter.
I don't think I have a certain type of books I really like - not at all. If you know a book you think I'd enjoy, please let me know in the comments. Do you have a book/books you want to read in the near future?
