5 On My Reading List

This year I've set myself the goal of reading 60 books. Maybe slightly optimistic, but I really want to continue prioritising reading over endless scrolling and Netflix binging.
These are just a handful of books that I've got on my reading list for the year; a mixture of fiction, non-fiction and poetry.

Inside the Wave by Helen Dunmore

Last year I really rekindled my love for poetry, and this year I want to branch out and try some different poetic styles.

The Guernsey Literary and Potato Peel Pie Society by Mary Anne Shaffer and Annie Barrows

I'm usually one to read the book first and then the film, but I was given the DVD of this for Christmas having never heard anything about it before. I loved the story, it was such a heartwarming film, and the book is epistolary which isn't something I've read a lot of.

One Of Us Is Lying by Karen McManus 

A thriller/mystery book isn't something I'd usually think of being to my taste, but I've read a couple of mystery novels recently and really enjoyed the suspense of them.

Eleanor Oliphant Is Completely Fine by Gail Honeyman 

It feels like everyone and their mum has been talking about this book, and I can't resist the hype for long.

A History of Britain in 21 Women by Jenni Murray

I've seen several great reviews of this, and as a feminist and a fan of historical and political non-fiction books, this sounds just up my street.

What books are you on your lists?
