recently read

I've been reading a lot more recently. I sort of fell away from reading for a few months, pretty much since the new year started. I've only read four books this month, which is just under average for me. I tend to read around six or seven books in a month, so it's been relatively slow in comparison.

Juliet by Anne Fortier
I've read this book many, many times, as you can probably tell from the spine. The pages are really thin so the spine cracks easy, but it doesn't bother me as it's one of my absolute favourites. I re-read it at least once a year. A twist on Shakespeare's classic Romeo and Juliet, which questions the origins of the most famous couple destined for disaster and puts into perspective what you'd do for the ones you love. Any romance lovers out there will adore this one, in my opinion. I'm not usually a fan of romance novels, but I do love Romeo and Juliet, so this was an easy one for me to like.

A Cat Lovers Miscellany by Mike Darton -
This is one of those books that you pick up because it's quirky but won't really offer much. Basically a collection of cat facts, trivia, fun little tidbits and remarks around cats. Pretty simple and very easy read.

Nineteen Eighty-Four by George Orwell -
I've read this a few times and each time get sucked into it a little more. I got a new copy fairly recently as I gave my old one to charity, along with a few other books. I think most people have read this at one point, whether through choice or through education. It's a great must read, a story based on a totalitarian world, which challenges the reader to think about the objectiveness of reality and the concept between right and wrong.

Gone Girl by Gillian Flynn
I read this after seeing the film was coming out. I still haven't seen the film after seeing a lot people saying that it doesn't do the book any justice whatsoever. This book has had a lot of popularity, so most people already know the core concept. Missing wife and husband is now the prime suspect, but did he really have anything to do with her disappearance? I really enjoyed this book, but probably won't read it again, due to knowing what happens in the story. I might read it again in a few years, hopefully having forgotten a good deal of the story and making it surprising again.

I've bought a few more books for next month, which I am so excited to start reading. Genuinely so excited. I'll be posting about those in a few days!

Thanks for reading!
