I always find it amusing that I do this “on my TBR” posts and I just know that it’ll backfire and I’ll read completely different books. Is there a thing called book-tracked? Like side-tracked but with books because that’s definitely what I suffer with but nonetheless I have SO many great books that I want to read this spring, and with the end of my first year of university in sight I’m so eager to get reading more again. So here are my picks that I hope to read this spring…
Okay so I’m not someone that often goes out of their comfort zone, not just with books but life in general so I’ve gone for my top 5 rather than top 10 this week. All of which are really great and unique reads that have changed my opinion on trying new books, I’ve become a lot more open to trying new genre’s thanks to these books so you should give them a try too!
I’ve linked up my reviews to these books so you can get a feel of what they’re about- enjoy!
The Loney by Andrew Michael Hurley
A Man Called Ove by Fredrik Backman
The Green Road by Anne Enright
Church of Marvels by Leslie Parry
This may seem strange to some of you but I love a good album to listen to whilst reading a book, whether it’s the soundtrack film adaption of the book or a completely random album as long as for me it seems to go well with the mood of the book then I love it. Sometimes I find myself finishing a book quicker too. When I read Far From The Madding Crowd I listened to the film soundtrack to immerse myself into the Hardy universe- and you know what it was rather lovely. I have a load of examples but today I’m sharing my top ten with you…
Do any of you listen to music while you read? Sometimes I can put on a song and thank “actually this sounds good whilst I’m reading this,” it can be the most bizarre album and not related to the book in any way but hey for some reason music helps me read quicker and sometimes helps immerse myself into that particular world.
What are your reading habits? Does music put you off reading?
I hope you’re having a great week.
Hugs and love,
