Hello everybody! So it's that time again that I randomly get the urge to order a bunch of books and get lost reading them all! Ever since I've read "A Work in Progress" by Connor Franta, that you've read about in Wednesday's blog, I've been searching the web to find the next book to binge on. I have a whole list of books that I want to read on my Amazon account and I have also posted it on my Pinterest board called "Reads". So in today's blog, I'll go through a couple of the books I'm absolutley dying to read and post a link that will tell you what it's about if interested. (I will not go through all of them because there's a lot of books out there that I want to read, and this blog post would take days to finish while being a mile long. So just a few for now, and maybe a part two later.)
I actually found out about this book a while back by looking at Emma Robert's Instagram. She posted it and just like every book she post's, I screenshot it, then I later look it up to see what it's about and possibly put it into my "To Read" list if it sounds interesting to me. Emma has such good taste in books so usually everything she reads is honestly worth reading. Besides the fact that Emma has read this book and said amazing things about it, it honestly sounds interesting to me. Above the description, PopSugar says "A must read for anyone hoping to live a creative life... I dare you not to be inspired to be brave, to be free, and to be curious."
This is another one of the many books featured on Emma's Instagram that I want to read so bad! I unfortunately suffer with some insecurities that I've been trying to get over for years now, so reading this book I'm hoping I find a way! In the description it says "Alan Watts shows that it is only by acknowledging what we do not—and cannot—know that we can learn anything truly worth knowing. In The Wisdom of Insecurity, he shows us how, in order to lead a fulfilling life, we must embrace the present—and live fully in the now."
I found this book by searching on the web "Book's to read in 2015" because if I searched "in 2016" instead, I was afraid it would come up with books that weren't even out yet. So I found a few interesting books on this site, I don't remember what the name of the site was called though, but it was very helpful and I'm so excited to read this! Especially after reading this: "Brace yourself for the most astonishing, challenging, upsetting, and profoundly moving book in many a season. An epic about love and friendship in the twenty-first century that goes into some of the darkest places fiction has ever traveled and yet somehow improbably breaks through into the light. Truly an amazement—and a great gift for its readers."
This is another book I found on that random website. At first, the cover was what stood out the most to me because it's full of colorful confetti so I looked up what the book was about and felt even more interested in it. "Lori Ostlund’s debut novel is an openhearted contemplation of how we grow up and move on, how we can turn our deepest wounds into our greatest strengths. Written with homespun charm and unceasing vitality, After the Parade is a glorious new anthem for the outsider."
Last but not least, this humorous book. I found out about this one by actually looking on Chris Colfer's (Kurt from Glee) Instagram.- I swear, looking on peoples Instagram's to find great books is where it's at! I believe his friend is the author of this book, and it looked interesting so like always, I looked it up then after reading the description I knew for sure I wanted to read this book. Look's and sound's absolutley hilarious! "This big-hearted, laugh-until-you-can’t-breathe collection of personal essays, stories, and riffs on finding love and intimacy in New York City announces the arrival of a “a monstrous new talent”."
Alright so those are the books that I'm dying to read the most! Honestly there's tons more and I could go on and on, but I'm just going to stop here and not put you guys through all of that non-stop reading! Haha, I hope you all enjoyed today's blog and if there's any other books you'd think I'd be interested in please let me know in the comments below! I'm always up for recommendations! Thank you all for reading like always, and have a great weekend!
