In My Bookshelf #1 | Books I’ve Read recently

Young adult books

Reading is one of my favourite ways to spend my free time. This year I’m hoping to read 30 books and I thought it would be nice to start sharing my thoughts about the books I’ve read with you. You can also follow my reading journey on GoodReads!

My not so Perfect Life by Sophie Kinsella – 4.5/5

This has to be one of my favourite books I’ve read this year! For some reason, I expected there to be more romance but the main male character isn’t that involved in the book actually. The story mainly concentrates on the main character Katie Brenner and her boss Demeter who Katie thinks has the perfect life Katie herself desires. Overall this has everything I look for in a contemporary chick-lit and I love the witty writing. The reason why I didn’t give this five stars is because, although it is fiction, I felt as though some details weren’t realistic and at some point, it seemed as though the writer had changed her mind and things ended up not adding up. Still, I would 100% recommend you read this!

Milk and Honey by Rupi Kaur – 4.5/5

I’m not that into poetry as sometimes I feel like you have to really understand poetry in order to get the point of the text. This book, on the other hand, is really relatable and beautifully written. It’s much more raw than I originally thought it would be and some parts made me cry but I definitely enjoyed it!

Everything, Everything by Nicola Yoon – 3.5/5

The Fault in Our Stars is one of my absolute favourite books which sort of inspired me to pick this up in the first place. The main character Maddy has a rare decease and needs to live her life inside four walls. Her life gets more interesting when a boy, Olly, moves next door with his family and they try to find ways to communicate without seeing each other in person. I really liked the relationship between Maddy and Olly and the overall story up until the big plot twist which ruined the book for me. I did still really enjoy the book and I’m so excited for the movie!

It by Alexa Chung – 5/5

I was so surprised that this had quite a few bad reviews on GoodReads but considering the comments people were expecting this to be an autobiography which it is not and wasn’t my personal expectation at all! Basically, it is a book filled with life and style tips from Alexa and just random stories she wanted to share. There’s also photos she has taken and quite a few of her as well. A must have coffee table read!

What are you reading at the moment? Any recommendations?
