I must admit, one of my favourite times is towards the end of the month when I get to choose which books I plan on reading. I know that I probably won't read all of them, but it's so satisfying to form a book list. I can't function if I don't have a list!
Last month was another crazy one for me, so I only managed to read two books; Tampa by Alissa Nutting and The Hunger Games: Mockingjay by Suzanne Collins. Now things have settled down again, I'm looking forward to devouring more books.
What I'm reading:My Mad Fat Teenage Diary by Rae Earl
Rae is a boy-crazed 17 year old trying to find her place in the world. After a short stint in a psychiatric ward, she is ready to start college, lose her virginity and tackle her body issues. I fell in love with the TV series when it first aired in 2013, and was delighted when I found out that the show was based on the published diary of the real-life Rae. I can't wait to start reading this!
A Short History of Tractors in Ukrainian by Marina Lawycka
Snow in Hell by Sophie Sparham
This is one I planned to read last month, but didn't get the chance to. Snow in Hell is Sophie's debut novel filled with necromancers, vampires and angels. I actually went to university with Sophie and can vouch for her stunning imagination. This will be the first book I've read that has been written by someone that I actually know!
World War Z by Max Brooks
I've wanted to read this book since the film version was release. A dear friend of mine read it a while ago and has been pestering me to do the same ever since. It reads as if a journalist has interviewed many different people to provide documentation for future generations, which I think is a great concept. I've not read many zombie books, so this will be a first for me.
What will you be reading this month?
