I am beyond delighted that last night I finished my Autumn reading list. It really got me back into the rhythm of reading. I basically just selected 10 books that I had on my bookshelf and read them! I work best when given a challenge so this was fantastic! Some were on the 1000 book challenge. Some were not. Most were non-fiction…something that I really am starting to find myself read more and more lately.
These were the books:
What I am trying to read by the 31.12.13
Wild – Cheryl Strayed(19.12.13) The Happiness Project- Gretchen Rubin(24.11.13) The Receptionist- Janet Groth(03.01.14) Lean In- Sheryl Sandberg(09.01.14) Man’s Search For Meaning: The classic tribute to hope from the Holocaust – Viktor E Frankel Grace: a memoir- Grace Coddington(15.01.14) Shantaram- Gregory David Roberts(31.10.13) Murder on the Orient Express- Agatha Christie(20.12.13) If You Have to Cry, Go Outside: And Other Things Your Mother Never Told You- Kelly Cutrone(21.12.13) Gone girl – Gillian Flyn(10.11.12)
It took me a bit longer than I would have liked to get through them all…but hell I can’t beat myself up about that.
My top 3 that I would recommend to you all:
1. Shantaram- Gregory David Roberts. A brutal, heart breaking beats of a book. One of the best things that I have ever read.
2. Grace a memoir Grace Coddington. Fabulous fashion, fabulous hair, a fabulous life.
3. Wild- Cheryl Strayed. I got lost in her adventure and inspired to start some of my own.
Up next…the winter edition!
