3 Books I Want To Read

forever september, beauty blogger, fashion blogger, books, three books i want to read, jandy nelson, teenage fiction, teenage novels,

Reading is something I don't do enough, but I'm hoping once college is over, I'll have some time to get stuck into a good book again!

A Universe From Nothing 
Not my usual read at all. I'm not the sciencey type, nor do I enjoy science haha. But, the universe, space and time do interest me a lot. I spotted this book ages ago, and it really intregued me. The book explores why there is something, instead of nothing. Why does anything exist, and how will it all end? To me, this seems super interesting and I can't wait to read it.

The Art of Being Normal 
I've already read a few pages of this book, and so far so good. This book is about two boys, who both have a secret. One of the characters, David, is teased by the school bully, and his parents think he's gay. Although, only his two best friends know that actually, he wants to be a girl. The other boy, Leo, who moved to the school David's at, stands up for David in a fight, where they form an unlikely friendship and I guess it goes from there. I'm happy to see a book exploring and bringing light to the LGBT+ community, and I'm excited to see what else this book entails.

I'll Give You The Sun
I have a feeling I'm going to love this book, as its by Jandy Nelson, who wrote 'The Sky is Everywhere'. Which I loved. This is a story about twins, Noah and Jude. They were incredibly close until a tragedy drove them apart, and now they're barely speaking. What the twins don't realize is that each of them has only half the story and if they can just find their way back to one another, they have a chance to remake their world. This sounds like such an interesting book, that is different from a lot of other 'teenage novels'. 

What books have you read recently?

  1. I've wanted to read the last two for ages, thank you for reminding me! I'm really into YA's too at the moment, I think because they're more of an easy read whilst being at uni like you say. I've just finished Everything Everything and I'm reading Wonder now and they are both beautiful , especially Everything Everything, I couldn't recommend it enough. Defnitely going to give IGYTS next though!


    1. YA books definitely are much easier to read - I'll have to check out those two books though!

  2. 'I'll Give You The Sun' sounds really interesting! I'll add that to my reading list xx
