Reading was one of my all time favourite hobbies in the world. There’s nothing better than getting lost in a book and sailing out of this world. Some of my favourite books which I’ve wrote about before still leave me gobsmacked to this day. So I wanted to share with you some books to read in October. Recently I won a competition on Instagram with a PR company and I won 4 new books.
My challenge for this month is not only to finish my current book but to start a new one too. At the moment I’m currently reading ‘Eleanor Oliphant Is Completley Fine’ by Gail Honeyman. I’ll admit it took me some time to get into this book and a few restarts of the first couple of chapters but as I’m nearing halfway I’m excited to see the character development.
Onwards and upwards..
From the books I received from the competition they are quite far apart from each other and I’m not entirely sure which one I’m going to pick up next. So out of all of the books to read I’ve heard amazing things about Lullaby by the writer Leila Slimani. On the cover it says ‘The baby is dead. It only took a few seconds’. So this to me seems like a gripping thriller and something I’m most likely to get my hands into. The Party by Elizabeth Day is a book about a long friendship between two completely different people and secrets in between. After reading the synopsis it seems like it might be a bit obvious when it comes to the story but I’ll be giving this a try none the less.
I have heard so much about The Handmaid’s Tale by Margaret Atwood. It’s a book that I’ve been told by friends will stay with me. A book that’s been made into a film and television series that people talked about constantly. I kept my ears shut and I’m excited to read this. And lastly Everything I Know About Love by Dolly Alderton. I have seen so many bloggers posting and featuring this book that I can’t wait to give it a go.
Every time I finish a book I’m going to update this post with a mini review and a link to a in depth review. I’m excited to try and get back on track with reading and although it won’t be anywhere near the pace I used to have, it’s getting that little bit of self love and care time to myself back. It’s going to be a challenge with so many books to read. Although I’m sure if I even finish one, I’ll be happy!
