Since I've moved to Leeds I've spent a lot more time in and around town, but a lot less time reading. I actually enjoyed the daily commute and it gave me time to devour books, which I find hard to do now. However, with the SO going away tomorrow I'm looking forward to having more time to get into some books that have been on my to-do list for a while now.
The Silkwork - Robert Galbraith
I am the Harry Potter generation and felt that a chapter of my life had closed when the final book came out (I'm not even joking), so was so excited when she released Casual Vacancy. However, I just couldn't get into it at all. I was a journalism student and the module on local government was the one I dreaded each week, so Casual Vacancy just wasn't for me. It was brilliantly written but the topic just didn't interest me at all. I was sad. I wanted more JK. Then the Cuckoo's Calling was released. A detective novel by one of my favourite people in the world. I LOVED it. Now, she has released another one with Cormoran Strike as the detective and I can't wait to get it - though I may wait for it to come out in paperback.
Human Universe - Prof Brian Cox & Andrew Cohen
I love space and nebulas and science and brilliant, beautiful things. I also love Brian Cox and his passion for everything he does. I love books like this, even if everything is really complicated and I don't understand half of it (if that much) the photos are incredible and helps keep the ol' cogs working I think. Since leaving education, I miss learning new things and feeling like you're improving yourself (which is my excuse for bingewatching quiz shows haha) and having books like this in my life makes me happy.
Before I go to Sleep - SJ Watson
This book has been hanging around on my Amazon Wishlist for an age, and it slowly got bumped further down as I got excited about newer things. I forgot all about it to be honest, until the trailer for the film came out and I remembered how much I really wanted to read it. I may not see the film until I've read the book. I love thriller and mystery book so this looks right up my street.
What are you looking forward to reading? Have you read any of these?
