On my reading list atm

Reading list picks… 

I gathered a few books from my shelf to read over the net few weeks. All these have been sitting around in my living room for a while now and I promised myself to read them before I buy any more books. Which seems like a rather simple thing to do, reading five books before buying new ones. But you have to know, I really love buying and owning books. So this will be part of my May goals, finishing this book pile from my reading list. And I hope, with postin my list online, I’ll find some extra motivation to stick to my plan! *fingers crossed* 

Some more things that motivate me to read more / finish this pile are: 

1: All the other books from my Amazon Booklist that I can order as soon as I finished the last one! 

2: Getting into a friendly reading competition with a friend. For example, read 1 chapter each day and motivate each other to do it.

3: The good feeling reading gives me! 


The books on my reading pile:


  1. The Rosie Project
  2. How to ruin everything
  3. The beautiful & damned
  4. The Essex Serpent
  5. My cat  Yugoslavia 

For more information on each book and how I like them, make sure you check out my Goodreads account. Also, I would love to connect with you and chat about favourite books. What are you reading at the moment?
