Reading always used to be something I loved when I was younger, but as I got older the passion just seemed to disappear. I've been making an effort to read more in the last few months and it is a New Years Resolution of mine. So I thought I would put together a blog post with my favourite reads, whether they be books, blogs or glossy magazines. 

Obviously as a blogger I love reading other blogs, I am really into fashion blogs at the moment, particularly Ropes of Holland and The Lovecats Inc (both linked below their photos). These girls have amazing style but it still seems achievable. I don't want to read blogs where everything they own is £££. That's what the glossy mags are for!

Onto magazines, my favourites are monthly magazines. I don't really see the point in weekly magazines, I find out all the goss in the side bar of shame (Daily Mail, I know. It's awful. I'm sorry.) and I think they all regurgitate the same stories anyway. Whereas within monthly magazines there are really interesting articles, well interesting to me anyway. My faves are Elle, Vogue (obvs), and Instyle.

With books, I have split them into two categories. 'Coffee table' books and regular books. I love coffee table books and I'm waiting for the day I can own a gorgeous glass coffee table and have books, flowers and candles all over it! I really love the photography in Stylelikeu and Style Diaries (linked below the photo) and I could flick through them all day with a nice cup of tea. 

Finally onto what I call 'regular' books! I am currently reading All My Puny Sorrows by Miriam Toews. It's about two sisters and one of them wants to commit suicide. It explores their relationship between the sisters and really makes you think about how suicide effects each person involved. 
Some other favourites include;
I Capture the Castle by Dodie Smith
1984 by George Orwell
The Lovely Bones by Alice Sebold
Norwegian Wood by Haruki Murakami

I am so glad I've made the effort to start reading properly again. Do you manage to find the time? 
Please leave any book recommendations in the comments :)
