My Winter To Be Read List | Books

Hi! :)

At the end of last year, I decided to order some new books off of Amazon, since I finished reading all the books I brought to Denmark. I managed to buy them for a very reasonable price. Four of them are completely new books, and the remaining three are used books, but in nice condition.

I already finished Let It Snow and The Christmasaurus in December, since both of them are holiday themed novels.

The next one I read will probably be Will Grayson, Will Grayson by John Green and David Levithan. One thing I have always wanted to do was reading all of John Green’s books, and by reading Will Grayson, Will Grayson, I will complete that “dream” of mine. I’m very excited! When I finish it, I might even do a post only focusing on JG books.

After completing the book mentioned above, I would like to read The Namesake by Jhumpa Lahiri. The fist aspect I noticed was its cover, but acquiring some information about its story and seeing reviews of it, I thought I’d buy it. I’m really interested in it, since I haven’t read anything compared to it yet.

Then, the ones left are Holding Up the Universe by Jennifer Niven, The One We Fall in Love With by Paige Toon and finally Girl Online Going Solo by Zoe Sugg.

I read All the Bright Places by Jennifer Niven before, which to be honest wasn’t my favourite. Although, upon hearing a lot of great things about her new book, Holding Up the Universe and all the hype around it, I thought I might as well give it another shot.We’ll see how it goes.

As most of you know, Zoe Sugg is a British Youtuber under the name Zoella, and she has created a book series called Girl Online. This one in the picture is the third one in line and I can’t wait to read it. I had no problem with her previous ones – unlike many other people – so I was excited for it to finally come out. It came out November, 2016.

I don’t think I have ever heard of any of Paige Toon’s books, but I might be wrong. I think this book either turned up in my Goodreads or Amazon recommended and the story caught my attention. I’m looking forward to reading it!

 

That’s it for now. See you soon! :)

Falling In Love With Books Again

Hi! :)

Since I haven’t written an update post for ages (the last one I wrote was in December), I thought that today’s the day to do one. I will talk about various things really, because there’s been such a lot going on in the last few weeks.

I have been so excited to read books again after my 10 Books From My Wishlist post, that I ordered some in English. I’m not a native English-speaker, so it’s not that easy to find good books in their original language here. However, for the last year or so I’ve tried to read more and more books in English so that I can improve my language skills a bit. Since I wrote that list, my to-read list became even bigger and I regained my love for books (finally!). I was the biggest bookworm in primary school, but in the last couple of years I couldn’t read as much as I wanted to. One day I stumbled across a video in which a girl discussed what her favourite books of 2015 were and I became incredibly excited about reading books. I looked up the story behind some of the books she had mentioned and created a Goodreads account. I started watching a ton of Booktube and I have to admit, I really like those videos. In fact, I subscribed to two Youtubers who only talk about books. I know, I might have become a little bit obsessed, but I’m totally okay with it. It’s just books, so no need to worry, haha. I stated reading a book yesterday and I’m already almost finished with it, so I’m very keen on seeing what’s next. The moral of the story is that you should make enough time to practice your hobby, because I certainly did not do that.

Munching on this month’s SourcedBox while reading

Slightly off topic, but my prom will be tomorrow. I think I am the only person in the universe who is not that eager about it. In my opinion it’s not that big of a deal here as in the USA, and even if it was I still wouldn’t look forward to it to be completely honest. It’s just not my type of event and I can’t wait for it to be over. Prom also reminds me of how close my final exams are getting and I’m terrified. The ‘applying for a university’ season also started, so it seems like someone’s screaming at me that “Finals are comiiiiing!”. But I decided to be the best I can be and smash those exams in a few months!

I have so many goals to achive this year that it’s insane. I really hope to be the strongest version of myself to be able to succeed in achiving them. Wish me luck for tomorrow, because we have to perform a class dance and I’m horrible at it! I’m so afraid that I’ll mess something up. Anyway, that’s what I wanted to chat about today, I hope you enjoyed reading it! Let me know in the comments what you’re up to these days or you can tweet me as well (@justkingablog)! See you soon! :)

 

P.S.: What do you think about Coldplay’s halftime show at the Super Bowl 50? I absolutely loved it!
