Harry Potter - JK Rowling
Harry Potter - JK Rowling

A timeless classic. I began reading these book in the Irish language when I was at primary school which was way too difficult and really put me off. I decided to try again just under a year ago and finished the series in 6 or 7 months. I fell in love. I am now a Potterhead. I love Dobby with my whole heart and I know I will read the whole series again very soon. I will also 100 per cent read these books to my children one day.

We all know I am Disney obsessed, and this book was so exciting to read. I loved having an insight into the mind of the man who is currently in charge of my favourite company. I devoured this book in two week! (which for me is very quickly)

Over The Top - Jonathan Van Ness
Over The Top - Jonathan Van Ness

The Queen of everything, JVN, inspiring people everywhere. This book actually hit me in a way I was not expecting. JVN has had a lot happen in his life before Queer Eye and he goes into beautiful detail in this memoir. Both uplifting and upsetting and written in a gorgeous very 'Jonathan' way. I loved it.

Eleanor Oliphant is completely fine - Gail Honeyman

The Giver Of Stars - Jojo Moyes
The Giver Of Stars - Jojo Moyes

I am a big fan of Jojo Moyes, I think I have read almost all of her books and this was her most recent release so I had to read it. I listened to it as an audio book and really enjoyed it. I love the way Moyes creates really indepth characters that I become really invested in. This was a little different that what I would usually read as it was set in the cowboy era, which took me a little getting used to, but once I did I was entralled.

Uncommon Type - Tom Hanks
Uncommon Type - Tom Hanks

As soon as I found out Tom Hanks was releasing a series of short stories I pre-ordered the collection. I obviously think Tom Hanks is a wonderful actor but i thought, you know what, a man with that much life experience is such to have something interesting to say. And I was right. I love that fact that the book is a collection of short stories because sometimes you want to feel like you've accomplished something. But also, they were so interesting and different but also well written and relatable. Definitely worth the read.

Interior of Book Store

Books

One of my favourite things in life is a good book. From a young age I have always loved wandering around book stores and could spend hours on the floor of a bookshop with a few prospective book choices and a Starbucks in hand.  I always want to read more, have more time to read and accumulate a beautiful library of knowledge and wonder.
I have comprised a brief list of all the books I've read (some of which I have reviewed on the blog here already)
