Good evening guys,
I absolutely love reading but recently I’ve been so caught up in binge watching Netflix shows that I haven’t picked a book up in ages. Abandoning my books has left me feeling guilty; it’s high time I finally get reading again. My fingers have been itching to pick up a book and so I thought I’d share my winter reading list with you. I have at least 40 books on my ‘to read’ bookshelf but here are the books I am currently in the mood to work my way through.
TINTENHERZ – CORNELIA FUNKE
The Inkheart trilogy, written (originally in German) by Cornelia Funke, is a series I have actually already read when I was about 12 years old. One of the reasons I am picking this trilogy up again now is that I haven’t read a German book in ages and I really need to keep my German reading up. I am noticing that it is getting more and more difficult for me to read with ease in German; it’s not that I don’t understand it anymore, but it definitely takes a lot more concentration for me to take everything in and not drift, so I figured a young adult’s trilogy would be a good start to get me back into German books. Moreover, I remember wolfing these books down the first time round and I have been eager for quite a while now to delve back into the beautiful world of this trilogy.
WOLFSANGEL – M.D. LACHLAN
I picked this book up the last time I was in Barter Books in Alnwick. It intrigued me with its blurb about wolves and Vikings. As of yet, I haven’t read a book set in the Viking era, but I love series like Vikings set in this ancient era and so I’m excited to give this a go.
THE LITTLE BOOK OF HYGGE – MEIK WIKING
MAKING FRIENDS WITH ANXIETY – SARAH RAYNER
Of course there had to be a book or two of non-fiction. I am trying to incorporate more non-fiction into my everyday reading and for my winter reading list I of course had to choose The Little Book Of Hygge to give me all those warm cosy zen feels and then I also decided on Making Friends With Anxiety a book I picked up quite a while ago in the hope that it would give me some insight and maybe suggest some new coping mechanisms for anxiety, which I suffer from on a daily basis.
THE REVENANT – MICHAEL PUNKE
I believe this book was a Christmas present about two years ago and I still haven’t got around to reading it! I picked this myself with a book voucher as I wanted to see what all the hype from the movie was about. I always want to read the books before I watch the movie or series adaptations, so I still haven’t seen the movie wither yet; before I get more books for Christmas that get put aside for two years aha, I thought it was high time I ticked this one of my list.
THE HANDMAID’S TALE – MARGARET ATWOOD
This has been on my ‘to read’ list for quite a while and with the quite recent hype of the televised show based on this book I decided I couldn’t put this one off much longer as I really want to watch the show, but as I just mentioned I refuse to watch it until I have read the book, so it’s time to get reading.
Have any of you already read any of these books? If so what did you think of them? I’d love to hear your thoughts and tell me what’s on your reading list too!
Love Carina xo
