As I’ve been gone from this blog for the past couple of months I thought I should give you a quick update on what I’m reading. I’ve been in-and-out of reading slumps since February but slowly and surely I’m emerging back into the book community and I’m loving it!
If I’m not posting here, I can guarantee that I am updating my Goodreads page so you can always go here to check it out!
Title: The Adventures of Sherlock Holmes
and The Memoirs of Sherlock Holmes
Author: Arthur Conan Doyle
Release Date: July 5th 2001 (this edition)
Around the beginning of June I got an urge to read some classics. There was a girl in hospital with me who was an English Literature major and we bonded a lot over the books we were reading – and seeing her reading Penguin Classics every day really inspired me to pick this one up. I’m enjoying it a LOT so far, definitely more than I was expecting!
Title: Tender is the Night
Author: F. Scott Fitzgerald
Release Date: January 1934
Along the same lines as the other one, I was inspired to pick this one up in hospital as well. I’ve kind of been on a F. Scott Fitzgerald kick lately. This is the only one I’ve actually started reading, but I have picked up quite a few of his works recently and I want to make my way through them soon!
Title: Furiously Happy: A Funny Book About Horrible Things
Author: Jenny Lawson
Release Date: September 22nd 2015
This book has been floating around the online book community for a few months now and I finally found a copy in my local bookstore. As I was in hospital (how many times can I mention this in one post) I found that it was the perfect time to pick this up. I have only read the first couple of chapters so far, but I am really enjoying it. Definitely worth picking up – especially if you’re suffering with any kind of mental illness!
So these are the books I’ve been reading at the moment! If you have read any of them, let me know, I’d love to know! ▲
