I am in awe at how we are rapidly entering the season of Spring. Time truly is passing by how grains of sand seep through our fingers. Although I eventually began to enjoy the short winter days because they meant hot water bottles under cosy blankets with mugs of hot tea, I am excited for the weather to be warmer and brighter, for the days to be longer, and for the sunsets to be more colourful.
Recently, I really felt the effects of the lockdown in my country due to COVD-19 (an entire year later) and have been trying to ensure I am doing all that I can to remain sane. For me, that has meant a lot of reading. I have curated a reading list I wish to complete this year which consists of 12 books, 1 for each month. I have sectioned the list into four parts:
– currently reading
– began reading once upon a time but didn’t complete so will begin again
– yet to read.
Although reading has been a lifelong hobby of mine, this is actually the first time I have created a reading list. Over the past few years, I have been rather sporadic with my reading and have left many texts unfinished, therefore I am now determined to complete each book in its designated time frame (which I am already failing at el oh el).
My chosen books are:
Embroideries by Marjane Satrapi
Love, Freedom, Aloneness – The Koan of Relationships by OSHO
To Begin Again:
The Five People You Meet in Heaven by Mitch Albom
The Monk Who Sold His Ferrari by Robin S. Sharma
The Alchemist by Paulo Coelho
What Are You Hungry For? by Deepak Chopra
The Lonely City by Olivia Laing
A Thousand Splendid Suns by Khaled Hosseini
The Untethered Soul: The Journey Beyond Yourself by Michael Alan Singer
On Earth We’re Briefly Gorgeous by Ocean Vuong
And The Mountains Echoed by Khaled Hosseini
The Bell Jar by Sylvia Plath
I am thoroughly enjoying my reading journey thus far and am glad to have gotten back in touch with such a grounding hobby. I hope by sharing this reading list, you may be introduced to some new titles which you could add to your own reading list.
Connect with me on Goodreads to be a part of my reading journey! (:
Happy reading, and like always, I truly appreciate the time you have spent here.
