Ok, so I have a lot of books (who would’ve guessed?!). Some are impulse or curiosity buys, most are casual purchases I’ll read whenever, and others are ones I really want to read. Let’s talk about those ones, the ones I refuse to go much longer without reading.
The first book I’ll list here is The Hate U Give by Angie Thomas. I know what you’re all thinking – “Georgia, how on earth have you not read THUG yet?!” I know, I know. I purchased it for my kindle in early July 2017 and I would’ve read it by now if I didn’t re-discover the joys of a library and constantly have my immediate TBR full of books that need to be returned after 3 weeks, or be in a book slump so bad I thought it was never going to end. I know it’ll be a really powerful read, and I will read it soon.
Next up, Simon vs. the Homo Sapiens Agenda by Becky Albertalli. Look, I think I’m just bad at reading books while there’s a huge hype around them. Honestly I never paid much attention to Simon vs. (I have no excuse for this), but with the movie being released and everyone talking about it it’s got me so desperate to read it! Preferably before I see the film, which isn’t really a good indicator of when I’ll read it since I rarely go to the cinema. I am borrowing a copy from someone in my book club, and I don’t want to keep it for ages so I will get round to it at first opportunity.
Why I’m No Longer Talking to White People about Race by Reni Eddo-Lodge is going to be one hell of an important read. I honestly think that everyone needs to have this on their book shelf. I’ve been hearing so much about this book and I finally purchased it from Housmans bookshop in Kings Cross, London a few weeks ago, and it’s safe to say this won’t stay unread for long.
Turns out this list is much shorter than I expected, I’m a little surprised by that! I could list more books, but these are the books I’m getting rather desperate to read. I usually pick up whatever book I’m in the mood to read, so I don’t want to give myself a long list when I might not read them for months still.
I hope you enjoyed reading this and that you have a good day! Georgia 🙂
