This year I set a goal for myself to read more books. Hence why I thought you lot here might like it if I also talk some more about books on here. So I thougt it could be fun to tell you guys which books I am planning on reading!
Doctor Who; The Drosten’s Curse – A.L. Kennedy
People who know me might know how much of a Doctor Who fan I am. Now that I have watched all episodes I thought it might be nice to read some of the books. I have already read ‘Stone Rose’ (which I would highly reccommend for all you tenrose shippers out there.) and now I decided to read this one, mainly because this was one of the only Doctor Who books they had in the bookshop in town.
This book, as all Doctor Who episodes, is about aliens, good and bad and a man called The Doctor who is there to fix it.
Will Grayson, Will Grayson – John Green & David Leuithan
One of the last John Green books I have not yet read. I set it as my goal quite a while ago to read all of his books as I always love them so much. This book has been laying around on my shelve for so long so I figured it was about time for me to read it.
The story of this book is about two teenagers, both named Will Grayson, who meet and as their worlds collide both teens find their lives going in unexpected directions.
Pride & Prejudice – Jane Austen
A classic. As someone who is thinking of studying English Literature at uni I figured I could not go there without having read this book. My mum read it as well when she was younger and told me she loved it and eventhough my mum and I have completely different taste in books, I still want to give it a go because this is just one of those books you have to read as a fanatic book lover.
For the ones who don’t know what this book is about; It tells the story of eighteenth-century Mr. Darcy and Elizabeth Bennet. Will they fall in love? Probably. Will it last? I don’t know, I have not read the book yet.
The Sunlit Night – Rebecca Dinerstein
I bought this books when I was in New York last Christmas. (I am getting a christmassy feeling rigt now. I shouldn’t, it’s summer..) It has become some sort of tradition for me to buy a book at every travel destination I go.
This book tells the story of two runaways, both alone, who meet each other. The book wants to tell you that no matter how far we travel to claim our own territory, it is love that gives us our place in the world.
Sherlock Holmes – Sir Arthur Conan Doyle
Once again, a classic. I blame Benedict Cumberbatch for my new Sherlock obsession.. Considering I loved the BBC version of Sherlock Holmes, I thought I should at least try and read the original Sherlock books. I got this massive book which contains all Sherlock stories so that will last me quite a while!
Again, if you don’t know the Sherlock Holmes stories; it is about Sherlock Holmes and John Watson solving crimes and mysteries.
Have you read any of these books? Did you like them? Which books are you planning on reading? Let me know in the comments!
