When I don't have my head stuck in my college books these days, I love to spend some time reading. I recently went to Easons and picked up a few books I had my eye on. I know I have a Kindle but I seriously prefer to read real solid books. When I'm travelling I don't mind bring my Kindle along with me but when I'm at home I just grab a book off my shelve. Over the past few weeks, I've bought s few new titles so I thought I'd share them with you guys. It's quite a mixed bag, I don't tend not to be drawn to a particular author as long as the cover description is good I'm sold.
Like alot of people I was pretty excited to see that J.K. Rowling was releasing a new book. I was a huge Harry Potter fan so I'm looking forward to seeing what The Casual Vacancy is like. I've heard quite a few mixed reviews so far but they never put me off reading the book in question so I'll let you know my thoughts on it. The only book I actually finished on my Kindle so far is John Green's The Fault in our Stars which is such a great read and well written, I'd definitely recommend it. I wanted to pick up another one of his books for a while, the blurb on the back of this book looked the best out of the three in stock. I'm expecting really good things from it. You & I is written by an author that I'm not familiar with. I read about it in a magazine and decided to pick it up as it sounded like something I'd like. After researching the book I found out that Emma Gillmor Murphy is a student here in Dublin so it's nice to support an Irish author.
When I was down the country visiting family friends recently, I came back with all these. My Aunt's friend runs a Book Club in her town which is such a good idea I think. I wish we had one in my local area. When I was leaving to head home to Dublin she gave me all these books which I can't wait to read when I have time soon. I've heard such amazing reviews on A Game of Thrones so I'll probably start off with this, I can't believe I haven't read it already to be honest. I only pictured the first book in the series here but she actually gave me the whole collection, there just wasn't enough room to get them all in. I know it will take me a while to get through the whole series as each book is ginormous but if I do manage to finish them I will let you know what I think.
What books do you have your nose in at the moment?
