Books come in all shapes and sizes, but it's how they touch your soul that matters.

Currently Reading.

My TBR pile is as long as the parents from Cheaper By The Dozen's shopping list, I buy books incessantly but I never have time to read them. The joys of a job, college and a social life; it doesn't leave time for much reading time. Which is a giant shame, but alas what can be done! haha


But I wanted to share the top 10 books on my to read list (Not College Related) I'm going to do 5 physical books and 5 Kindle books! :D


 Physical books: 1. The Red Queen - Victoria Aveyard

                           2. Fairest - Marissa Meyer

                           3. How To Build A Girl - Caitlin Moran

                           4. All I Know Now - Carrie Hope Fletcher

                           5. Girl Online - Zoe Sugg

All of which I've had for a longgggg time (except Carrie's book!) and I can't wait to dive into them. Girl Online and All I Know Now are both Hardback and the other three are paperbacks but I really want to read them ASAP!


 Kindle books. 1. Confess - Colleen Hoover (the only Hoover book I haven't read!)

                        2. Asa - Jay Crownover (Last Marked Men novel (I think!))

                        3. The Bronze Horseman - Paulina Simmons

                        4. Me Earl and The Dying Girl - Jesse Andrews.

                        5. The Miniaturist - Jessie Burton. 

Again, not all of these books are out very long but I've been waiting for them for a long while so, I'm looking forward to getting around to reading them!



Last year I read 163 books, this time last year I was about my 50th book - maybe a little more. This time around I have read 12 books and 3 of them were college related ( I am doing an English degree but I'm only counting novels towards my goal; not poetry or Tales or collection of essays or anything below 200 pages!). So yes 9 books in almost 5 months is pretty pitiful compared to last year but I hope to rectify this! 

So this year my goodreads goal was 75 but recently I changed it to 50, as 75 seems not plausible at the moment, but who knows!
