My autumn reading list

In the autumn and winter I am all for books your can read cozied up in a fluffy blanket with a cup of tea and if you've been following me since the new year you will know that my resolution/goal for this year was to read 15 books. And well I am failing that goal at the moment so I want to get back on board the reading train so I hit that goal.
I completely forgot until I was writing this post that I had actually downloaded and bought a few books back in January and those are the ones I want to read this season.

I am actually more than half way through this book and I love it. If you've been living under a rock and you havent heard of this book its written by Sophia Amoruso, founder and CEO of Nasty Gal. She shares stories of her rebellious, shoplifting and hitchhiking teenage years and her journey creating Nasty Gal. There are so many laugh out loud moments in this book and its a great pick-me-up and feel good read. 

Just Friends by Billy Taylor
I am 100% a sucker for any sort of teen/young adult love story. Probably because the only sort of love story I had when I was a teen was through me and Edward Cullen...awkward.
"August and Ethan have been best-friends since the day they met at Ethan's seventh birthday party. And now, twelve years on, their friendship continues to grow. But after magic, fame, money and an unexplainable miracle in a car accident, August realises maybe she wants to be more than just friends."

The Life Changing Magic Of Not Giving A F**k by Sarah Knight 
If you're not sold on the title of this book alone, then the summary will definitely sell you. I cannot wait to read this book!
"Are you stressed out, overbooked, and underwhelmed by life? Fed up with pleasing everyone else before you please yourself? It's time to stop giving a f*ck. 
This brilliant, hilarious, and practical parody of Marie Kondo's bestseller "The Life-Changing Magic of Tidying Up" explains how to rid yourself of unwanted obligations, shame, and guilt--and give your f*cks instead to people and things that make you happy. 
The easy-to-use, two-step NotSorry Method for mental decluttering will help you unleash the power of not giving a f*ck about: 
Family drama, having a "bikini body", co-workers' opinions, pets, and children and other bullsh*t! And it will free you to spend your time, energy, and money on the things that really matter. So what are you waiting for? Stop giving a f*ck and start living your best life today!"

Fangirl by Rainbow Rowell 
I read Eleanor & Park by Rainbow Rowell a few months ago and I completely fell in love with the story and Rainbows writing that I immediately wanted to read some more so I bought this one.
"Cath is a Simon Snow fan. Okay, the whole world is a Simon Snow fan, but for Cath, being a fan is her life - and she's really good at it. She and her twin sister, Wren, ensconced themselves in the Simon Snow series when they were just kids; it's what got them through their mother leaving."

Paper Towns by John Green 
I actually started to read this months ago but it didnt grab my attention so I stopped reading it and forgot about it until now. So, Im going to try and read it all the way through this time because it sounds like something I would enjoy and John Green is a great author.
 "Quentin Jacobsen has spent a lifetime loving the magnificently adventurous Margo Roth Spiegelman from afar. So when she cracks open a window and climbs back into his life–dressed like a ninja and summoning him for an ingenious campaign of revenge–he follows."

  2. That's such a coincidence because my new year's resolution was also to read 15 books!! I've read Fangirl, and Paper Towns and absolutely loved them both. I also fell in love with Rainbow's style of writing and for that reason I want to read Eleanor and Park! I guess we've just read them the opposite way round haha! Hope you're having a lovely day!

  7. Oh I love seeing what's on people's reading list. I've read and loved Paper Towns, Fangirls (and I loved Carry On as well) and #GirlBoss is on my to-read list at the moment. I'm currently reading Cress by Marissa Meyer and re-reading Rising Strong by Brene Brown.


    1. Carry On is actually another book I want to read at some point.

      Ive heard some good things about those two books. x

  8. #GIRLBOSS sounds so good I'll definitely have to read it! I read All The Bright places recently and fell in love I'd really recommend it!

  9. I really want to read #girlboss!


  10. I absolutely loved Girlboss but sometimes found Amoruso's writing very snobby. Her reputation and work is amazing bt I feel arrogance in the writing idk if you found that too?
