In my bookshelf: Reading list

There is nothing better, especially in the cold months, than curling up with a brew and a decent book. One of my main goals this year is to do more reading and less scrolling (which I do way too often; sometimes I can literally feel my brain cells deteriating) so before they collect too much dust (the books not my brain cells) i’ve gone through my bookshelf to dig out the books I haven’t read yet and it turns out there are quite a few.

In December, I was having one of those ‘go on treat yourself’ kinda months which isn’t ideal when there is a Waterstones a stone throw away from your office but hey ho I blame Christmas. I’d go in there every lunchtime, ask the store staff what they’d recommend and spend what I’ve now realised when looking back over bank statements to be a large chunk of my wage.

My all time favourite genre is physiological thrillers (as you can probably tell from the images) and I’m not very good at straying from them unless it’s for a classic which could be seen as me being narrow minded or just a girl who knows what she likes, I like to think its the latter. So here it is, my reading list which I hope to get through by the beginning of summer. If you’ve read any of them, I’d love to hear what you thought!

The Betrayals by Fiona Neill

The Girl With All The Gifts by M.R Carey

The Girls by Emma Cline

The Husband’s Secret by Liane Moriarty(one of my favourite authors!)

I See You by Clare Mackintosh

The Couple Next Door by Shari Lapena

Dear Amy by Helen Callaghan

    I love a psychological thriller too and have read 3 of these, I find them so easy to read because you cant wait to find out what happens! As much as I love looking around book shops I would probably become bankrupt if I bought my books in there, I tend to order from Amazon when they have offers and they currently have loads of books for £2 😉
