2016 is nearly half-way over and like any other bibliophile on a budget I’m sat here deciding what to read next.
With a heavy heart I’ve been able to short-list a few of the titles (from the hundreds) that I want to read A.S.A.P. and have mentioned why I want to read them.
Now without further ado let’s begin!
1) Outlander (series) – Diana Gabaldon
Outlander was published way before I was born so for the longest time I wasn’t aware of the hype surrounding it. So last year I accidentally began watching the TV-show and immediately fell in love with it. It has all of my favorite elements : romance, sci-fi, mystery, historical fiction, hot men in kilts (to be read Sam Heughan) etc. Now season 2 is nearly over (haven’t watched it yet) and I’ve decided that I’m going to give the books a try – because it is an unwritten fact that the books are always better than the TV-show/movie (eg: twilight)
2)Illuminae – Amie Kaufman , Jay Kristoff
I admit to being slightly jealous of anyone who already owns this book. Have you looked at it? It’s aweosme! Not only is it designed in a cool way but I’ve heard that the story-line is epic as well. It definitely is the best of both worlds and I can’t wait to get it.
3) The Secret Keeper – Kate Morton
I’ve read “The House At Riverton” and absolutely loved it. This is Kate Morton’s highest rated book and has been on my TBR ever since it came out and it’s high time I finally read it.
4)The Vegetarian – Han Kang
This book was recently translated into English and has won the “2016 Man Booker International Prize” (amongst other awards). The cover is beautiful and the plot seems intriguing. What more could I want?
