Reading Bucket List

There are so many books which are on my reading list but this summer there are a few I particularly want to make sure I finish (and start!)

After taking some inspiration from the Lulu Lovess blog  I have just started reading The Beautiful and Damned by F. Scott Fitzgerald. I have recently finished the Great Gatsby and I loved the way it transports you totally and utterly to a different era and country and for a moment everything is dripping with glamour but also tragic at the same time.

The Beautiful and Damned

I bought this copy from a lovely bookshop/cafe on All Saints Road in just by Westbourne Park called Book and Kitchen. You can browse their selection of new and second hand books before having a freshly squeezed orange juice and relaxing in a cozy armchair in their downstairs cafe.  I do have a kindle and they are so useful for travelling but nothing beats reading and old fashioned, physical book.  I found out only recently that Oxfam sell second hand books online. They are cheap, beautiful and for charity so a winner all round!

Also on my reading list for this year…

Reading List

As you can see, they are mostly “classics” and I sometimes find it difficult to read current things when there are so many other great classics out there. I recently joined a modern book club, hosted by Nomad Books in Fulham which is a great way to read things that I wouldn’t necessarily to read myself but are still great books. It is also lovely to meet up once a month and chat to others about a book you have read and get their opinion on it.

What books are on your reading list this summer?
