For the past 5 years I have read one hundred books a year. I know, it sounds crazy. How do I have so much time? I read every single day, and can quite often finish a book in one sitting but mainly I’m a fast reader.
This may be the first year(2018) that I fail this. This isn’t because I’ve been super busy nor lost my interest. It’s simple that I can’t find the books. Again this sounds crazy, but I’ve read all the YA books in my local library, and this is currently what I like reading best. This has left me a little lost. I’ve delved into the ordinary fiction section of my library, and read those that stand out to me, but I’m not quite ready to leave my favourite genre just yet. Contemporary is what I read most, fantasy and dystopian just aren’t my cup of tea.
I heavily rely on libraries as my access to books as I no longer want to collect books, I am trying to be more minimal with my possessions. I still crave a physical book, so kindles are my last resort, I sometimes use my boyfriends if the library can’t get hold of a book I want to read. I have a TBR list (‘To be read’ list for those who aren’t quite a book worm haha) and shall continue adding to this. I have exhausted the google top lists, so would appreciate if anyone reading this blog post would comment their favourite/ must read books I should add to my list.
My all time favourite books are;
– flowers in the attic -V. C. Andrews (could you have guessed? my blog name was taken from this)
– Catcher in the Rye – J. D. Salinger
– It’s kind of a funny story -Ned Vizzini
-The book thief – Markus Zusak
-My heart and other black holes- Jasmine Warga
-All Cathy Glass books
I may start adding book reviews onto my blog.
