Currently Reading #1

When I'm struggling to read, I start so many books within a short space of time but don't finish any! Because of this, I have no reviews to write and now I have no posts to publish. 

Instead of a TBR or wish list (which might be a future post), I thought I would write a post on books I'm currently hoarding on my bedside table.

Currently Reading: Fiction:

Life of Pi by Yann Martel (link)
Annoyingly this was the book that started my struggle with reading. I finished a book before it, went to start reading this after and found a note in the front that made me feel guilty for owning a book that was meant to be a loving gift. I haven't *really* started reading this book yet either, I'm just carrying it around. 

The Perks of Being a Wallflower by Stephen Chbosky (link) 
I hate this book. It is over-hyped. I don't enjoy the format and find the overall book very boring. I am only halfway - although if it gets better PLEASE TELL ME, I'm begging!

Wilde Like Me by Louise Pentland (link)
I could have easily finished this book in the first day! I bought it for a mere £5 in Tesco (link). It appears to be enjoyable, perhaps a little jumpy in places. If you enjoy chick-lit/Sophie Kinsella/Giovanna Fletcher/any other authors along this category then you'll enjoy this book. It's easy to read and isn't anything too difficult to emotionally handle. 

Currently Reading: Non-Fiction:

The Little Book of Hygge by Meik Wiking (link)
I had heard a LOT about this book and took it to be the next Life Changing Magic of Tidying Up (link). It's more and better. Also, you are not required to tidy up. Such an easy flick through book, exploring the idea of Hygge [pronounced: hooga] and what makes people happy. If you already enjoy lighting candles and being content, you'll enjoy reading this book. Bonus, it's got a beautiful cover.

Doing It! by Hannah Witton (link)
I remember when I first hit puberty my Mum bought me some 'child-friendly' books to explain what was happening to my body, and another one specifically on periods. They were good. Cannot remember what they were called though. This is the next level up. Discussing everything someone growing up in the 21st century needs to know about sex. It doesn't tell you how to have sex. But it discusses Healthy Relationships, Bad Relationships, Virginity - how this is a made up concept used to make females feel guilty for sex, Sex Education, LGBTQ+ community, Consent (!!!), Masturbation, Porn (the good, the bad and the ugly side of porn), Bodies & Body Image, Sexual Pleasure, STIs (and other sexually transmitted 'problems'), Sexting, Sex Shaming and much more. 

Let me know if there are any book related posts that you're interested in reading this summer! Your wishes shall be my commands.
