Books of 2015

With some inspiration from Instagram and other bloggers I have decided to write a list of all the great books I want to reread and introduce myself to throughout 2015. Life can be hectic and some people say they can’t make time to read. I however see it as they usually won’t make time for it, choosing to prioritise other things ahead of a book. For me reading is a must and is time well spent!

Reading takes you away from your worries just for a moment and releases your imagination. It helps you form opinions on certain topics, teaches you new styles of writing and new vocabulary is inevitably picked up. Reading for pleasure is an inexpensive hobby yet it really enriches your life. In a part of the world where there is free access to endless amounts of books it seems a shame to not be grateful for the opportunity to read and make the most of what we are fortunate to have!

So for 2015 the following books are what I plan to read. Of course books are not always our taste and sometimes get forgotten. Other books can also pop up in our lives so this is a flexible list which I will keep returning to and adding titles to. I am not very good at writing reviews and I hate to be a critic of people’s art so I will probably write a short post on each of my reads and say whether or not I liked it! Oh and the books are not in any specific order, I read a book when I feel ready to.

  1. I’ve been thinking about getting in to reading lately. I’m not a big reader and like you said, I always find something more interesting to do. I have a little list of books I want to read though so maybe I should make it a priority!
