Hello my loves and welcome back to my… bookshelf! Oh surprise, I didn’t say blog. 😉
Well today we have the second instalment in my ‘welcome to my bookshelf’ series and in this post I’m going to be giving you a little insight into what I’m currently reading and the books that are next up on my to be read pile. With one of those books needing to be started ASAP.
Right now I’m currently reading the fantastic book ‘Eat, Pray, Love’ by Elizabeth Gilbert. This is a non fiction book written by Elizabeth about her own travel adventures from Italy to India to Indonesia, and ultimately about her own journey of self discovery. From the moment I started reading ‘Eat Pray Love’ I felt a connection and the story resonated with me immediately. Be careful though, this book will make you want to pack your bags and set off on your own self discovery journey asap, so you better be prepared for the travel bug to hit once you start reading this book.
I’m currently on the second part of Elizabeth’s journey, which sees her in India, although here I’ve come to a bit of a stand still. At the moment I’m in a chick lit genre type of mood which this book just isn’t. This book is deep, meaningful, amazing, insightful and an incredible journey, but one I need to be in the right mood to follow along with. Currently, I’m in the mood for lighthearted Summer reads and whilst Eat Pray Love is a fascinating story with so much to offer, at the moment it’s on the back burner for a little bit. It’s still obviously on my ‘currently reading’ list at the moment though because I am making my way through it, just at a very slow pace. I’m so looking forward to picking up where I left off with this book again soon, as writing about it has got me feeling in the mood to read! I’ve seen the film version of Eat Pray Love too which was great but I’ve definitely connected more with the book. Hey, if you’ve seen the film adaption but not read the book yet, why don’t you pick a copy up and have a read? You might even catch up with me and we can read along together. Then go straight to lastminute.com and book our flights to Rome. Who’s with me? Hehe!
The second book I’m ‘currently reading’ is One Summer In Paris by Sarah Morgan. This book is taking a backseat for the moment because I have another novel I’m making my priority however so far so good and I look forward to reviewing this book for you very soon. And to reading the book of course, I can’t wait to explore Paris through the pages of Sarah Morgan’s writing.
Finally, on my current to be read pile and the book that’s taking number one priority in my life right now is I Heart Vegas by Lindsey Kelk. This is the fourth book in Lindsey’s ‘I Heart’ series and I am so excited to read it. I’ve just finished reading I Heart Paris which was excellent, and I am totally hooked on these books and need to know what happens next asap. The I Heart books are a lighthearted, humorous, adventurous, chick lit series which I can’t get enough of. I finished I Heart Paris in a matter of days and I’ve no doubt I’ll speed through Vegas too. Especially considering I’m hoping to go there next year, this’ll be the perfect book to put me in the mood! Vegas Baby! I’m 100% going to be reviewing the whole I Heart series here on the blog for you once I’ve finished them myself (which will probably be pretty soon, although I’m not too looking forward to when that day comes because I don’t want these books to end *sad face*, I don’t know what I’ll do with myself). I love how the I Heart books are always set in different locations, so you get to explore the world as you read and they include the perfect mix of romance, friendship, travel, adventure and humour. I think the I Heart series is the best chick lit series I’ve come across so far, so props to Lindsey Kelk. I’m excited to read more of her books both within the I Heart series and others, starting with I Heart Vegas. Stay tuned for the reviews…
