My Current Reading List

10th January 2021

I have always been an avid reader, but it is something I let slip as I headed into my twenties. Night time reads turned into social media doomscrolling, a habit I am trying my best to break.

At the start of the year, I set up my 2021 Goodreads challenge, aiming to read 24 books throughout the year. To reach my goal, I will be breaking this up and reading two books each month.

Self-help reading has been a staple part of my morning routine for quite a while, so my list will include one fiction and one non-fiction read every month.

January

Watching You – Lisa Jewell

I am a huge fan of Lisa Jewell’s twisty novels, and ‘Watching You’ was no exception. Watching you is a gripping tale of love, lust and obsession that will have you hooked from the first page. I demolished this book over two days and is the perfect read for any fan of jaw-dropping thrillers.

Good Vibes, Good Life: How Self-Love Is the Key to Unlocking Your Greatness – Vex King

I’m currently around a third into social media guru’s self-help book ‘Good Vibes, Good Life’. Drawing from his own challenges and experience, this book is an inspirational read that will help change your mindset, allowing you to become the best version of yourself through mindfulness and manifestation.

February

The Baby Group – Caroline Corcoran

From The Sunday Time’s Top 20 Bestsellers’ list, ‘The Baby Group’ has been coined an “addictive new thriller with a twist you won’t see coming”. Scarlett’s golden life suddenly unravels when someone sends a shocking video of her to everyone she knows. The only people who claim they haven’t seen it are the friends in her new mothers’ group: Cora, Emma and Asha. Scarlett is forced to delve into her past to discover who is out to get her. But as her circle of trust gathers around her, she has to ask – are her friends as innocent as they seem?

Greenlights – Matthew McConaughey

Oscar-winning actor Matthew McConaughey shares 50 years of wisdom in his unconventional memoir ‘Greenlights’, filled with raucous stories, outlaw wisdom, and lessons learned the hard way about living with greater satisfaction. McConaughey’s “love letter to life” is a guide to catching more greenlights-and to realising that the yellows and reds eventually turn green too.

March

The Beekeeper of Aleppo – Christy Lefteri

‘The Beekeeper of Aleppo’ is sure to be an incredibly moving read. Nuri is a beekeeper; his wife, Afra, an artist. They live a simple life, rich in family and friends, in the beautiful Syrian city of Aleppo – until the unthinkable happens. When all they care for is destroyed by war, they are forced to escape. As Nuri and Afra travel through a broken world, they must confront not only the pain of their own unspeakable loss, but dangers that would overwhelm the bravest of souls. Above all – and perhaps this is the hardest thing they face – they must journey to find each other again.

Big Magic: Creative Living Beyond Fear – Elizabeth Gilbert

Elizabeth Gilbert’s ‘Big Magic’ has been on my bookshelf for as long as I can remember. I did briefly give it a go a few years back but stopped after ten pages or so, as I definitely wasn’t in the right headspace to read it. It does have very mixed reviews, but I am keen to give it a second chance.
