The one thing in life that I wish I had more time for is reading. Or, should I say, the one thing I wish I could do is manage my time more effectively so that I could spend more time reading. Here are some books I want to get soon!
Blog Inc: By Joy Deangdeelert Cho: Here
Although I don’t really care about the level of followers I have, and don’t want to generate finance from my blog or create a career from it, there is a chapter on how to take better photographs and I’m pretty sure that wouldn’t do me any harm.
Style Me Vintage, Clothes, Hair and Make Up: Step by Step Retro Look Book: By Naomi Thompson, Belinda Hay, Katie Reynolds: Here
I don’t have much interest in vintage make up or clothes; it’s not really my style. However, I am totally interested in the hair. I see lots of people on Tumblr and Blogger with great vintage hair styles and I’m always really jealous!
The Prime Ministers Who Never Were: by Francis Beckett: Here
I see this book in the Politics section of Waterstones every time I go in for a browse and yet I still haven’t managed to actually pick it up off the shelf and buy it. This is exactly the kind of politics I’m really into.
The Hangover Cookbook: Milton Crawford: Here
I’m really hoping there’s some great easy recipes in this book, because everytime I’m hanging I go straight for a bacon butty and a can of coke. However, ever since I’ve been in the
(with its complete lack of bacon
unless it’s shaped into really odd thin circles, where are my bloody rashers?!)
I haven’t been able to do that, more inspiration is needed! Netherlands
Europe: What If Left the EU?: Alexander Charles,
Benjamin Singleton and David Charter: Here Britain
I have seriously mixed opinions on the EU. On the one hand, it’s made me being able to study abroad one of the easiest things in the world in terms of technicalities. On the other hand, I had to study EU law for a year and that’s enough to make anyone hate the whole concept. I’d love to learn more about it, especially with all this chat of a referendum!
The Undutchables: An Observation of the
, its Culture and its Inhabitants:
by Colin White, Laurie Boucke and Rusty Haller: Here. Netherlands
A Dutch friends of mine recommended this to me to learn more about Dutch culture, and it has seriously mixed reviews. I love reading about other cultures, so I’m intrigued by this book and would love to know if there are any bits in there that I can now relate to.
Shit Girls Say: Kyle Humphrey: Here
Purely as a coffee table humour kind of book, which seems a little off really when I introduce the next book...
The Equality Illusion: by Kat Banyard: Here
Rebekah posted a review of this book on her blog which has made me want to go and read it. You can read it here.
Downing Street: Nick Robinson: Here
This is the kind of career I’d love to go into really, but doubt I’ll ever be able to. It’d be nice to know more about it all.
My Future Listography: by Lisa Nola: Here
I love making lists and I think this is quite a thought provoking and fun activity, all within a little journal.
Do you have any of these books or have any books you've read recently and you'd recommend?
