The books I’m using to get back into reading

Something you might not know about me is that I’m a bookworm. Well I used to be. In fact I could get through a book a day!

But since going to university and getting a full-time job reading has been the last thing on my mind.

I’ve always loved diving into a good book but between work, blogging and Netflix binging I’ve just not had the time or the motivation.

But I’m trying to change that.

So I took a trip to Waterstones and looking over the unread books on myself and picked out a few for my nightstand in the hope it will help me get back into the swing of things.

Hopefully these recommendation will help you too if you’re struggling.

I HEART LONDON BY LINDSEY KELK

I always find that when you’re struggling to pick up a book you should try to reach for an author or a series you know you love. When you already know what to expect and you know that you’ll enjoy it then it makes reading so much easier.

Lindsey Kelk is one of my favourite authors and this is part of a series I’m yet to finish but know that I love from the previous books.

It’s also a bit of a rom-com novel and the characters are loveable hilarious! The whole series follows a 20-something girl as she decide to up and leave for New York after a break-up and her whirlwind life following the move.

These type of books are a lot easier to read in my opinion and you can fly through them as you don’t have to think as much.

THE COUPLE NEXT DOOR BY SHARI LAPENA

I’m yet to dive into this one but I’ve heard nothing but good things about it from other people.

Thriller’s a great ones to pick up if you’re in a reading slump as they tend to keep you on the edge of your seat meaning you’re more likely to want to keep reading.

Many people seem to have read this novel in a day so it sounds like the perfect one to pick up to get over this reading break I’ve been having.

The story follows a couple who go to a dinner party next door only to return to find that their daughter is missing from her cot….

ONE OF US IS LYING BY KAREN M. MCMANUS

Sometimes you want a mix of interesting yet an easy read which can be hard to find.

My advice is to hit the young adult section.

Novels that fall into this section tend to be for younger readers 16-21 so they have some adult themes within them but you don’t always need to think too much when reading them.

I’ve actually started ‘One of us is lying’ and so far so good. It’s been called a mix of the breakfast club meets Pretty Little Liars – what’s not to love!

The synopsis states that 5 strangers walk into detention and 4 walk out alive!

If you’re looking for a thriller style book but don’t want something to heavy then this could be a good way to ease yourself in.
