TOP TEN TUESDAY

I try to do these weekly but I have failed for a long time now haha. Forgive me? This is a weekly challenge hosted by the broke and the bookish. I saw this weeks on Coffeeloving Bookoholic  and the books she picked and some of my all time favourites- so I feel like I HAVE to do it.

TOP TEN BOOK RECOMMENDATIONS IF YOU WANT TO GET INTO CLASSICS. 

I absolutely love classics I do…good thing I studies an English Literature undergraduate course.

  1. My all time favourite book is – On the Road by Jack Kerouac.  It both breaks my heart and baffles me when I see people giving it like one star. WHYYYY? I initially read this book in anticipation for the 2012 movie starring Kristen Stewart (one of my all time favourite actresses) but I am so glad I read it then because it still stays with me now. qqq.gif
  2. The Great Gatsby by F.Scott Fitzgerald. I first read this years ago and then I had to study it for first year at University and I fell in love with it deeper. 7.gif
  3. Oliver Twist by Charles Dickens. I love love love Dickens. 0.gif
  4. Great Expectations by Charles Dickens. http---mashable.com-wp-content-gallery-classics-you-should-read-tumblr_lx025fwjgg1r6gxmgo1_r1_500.gif

The Shining Girls by Lauren Beukes 

The girl who wouldn’t die – hunting a killer who shouldn’t exist.

In Depression-era Chicago, Harper Curtis finds a key to a house that opens on to other times. But it comes at a cost. He has to kill the shining girls: bright young women, burning with potential. He stalks them through their lives across different eras, leaving anachronistic clues on their bodies, until, in 1989, one of his victims, Kirby Mazrachi, survives and turns the hunt around. 

                           Amazon – £2.29 


 

The Little Friend by Donna Tartt 

Twelve-year-old Harriet is doing her best to grow up, which is not easy as her mother is permanently on medication, her father has silently moved to another city, and her serene sister rarely notices anything. All of them are still suffering from the shocking and mysterious death of her brother Robin twelve years earlier, and it seems to Harriet that the family may never recover. So, inspired by Captain Scott, Houdini, and Robert Louis Stevenson, she sets out with her only friend Hely to find Robin’s murderer and punish him. But what starts out as a child’s game soon becomes a dark and dangerous journey into the menacing underworld of a small Mississippi town.

3000 + followers…

Over the last academic year, I have dedicated a lot of my time to my final year at university because I knew that if I didn’t give it my all and failed I would be extremely disappointed at myself.  That being said, I have missed blogging frequently and interacting with you guys.  

Sorry for abandoning my blog and thank you for sticking around to read this.

This blog means soo much to me, its my little place on the internet that allows me to truly be myself and speak freely about topics that I adore. This is also an excellent place for an introvert like me to passionately display my fandoms and interests…while meeting others who feel the same.

I have some how accumulated 3000+ followers while sporadically posting so thank you!!!

Can I do it?

*Drumroll please*

At the beginning of the year I decided to set myself a reading challenge and if you have been reading my blog for a long time now, you know the ultimate number changed a few times...50/75/115/100… you get the idea.   

A few posts of mine about the reading challenge-

Nearly half way…

62 out of 100 reading challenge.

As you know, we don’t have very long left of 2016 and I am starting to panic a little bit because I  have only read 88 books this year. That means that I still have to read 12 more books to reach my goal of 100 books read in 2016. 

I need your help…please motivate me in the comments below with book suggestions/ books you have loved this year etc. JUST PLEASE MOTIVATE ME!! I REALLY WANT TO ACHIEVE MY GOAL.
