Ok, so I have a confession...I've not picked up a book in months. I feel terrible for letting one of my biggest resolutions fail spectacularly. Life has been crazy the past couple of months and I've not had the chance to take time out to read. Even when I've been on the go I've had to take my laptop and work instead of taking getting lost in a good book which is my favourite thing to do. As things seem to have calmed down a little more now I'm trying to get back into the habit of reading and what better way than delving into the books that I love to read over & over again?
Harry Potter series by J.K Rowling: Since I was fifteen I've read the Harry Potter series every single summer and I've continued this tradition into adulthood. It's my favourite book series, ever and no matter how many times I read it the story never gets old. Reading them as an adult is so different to reading them as a child, you pick up more on the life lessons that Rowling includes. I'm excited to stuck into the series again and can't wait to fall even more in love with the magical world if that is even possible.
Whatever You Think, Think The Opposite by Paul Arden: I love anything by Paul Arden and keep both his books by my desk. I don't read this book on repeat for the captivating story line because that isn't what it's about. I re-read this on any occasion that my inspiration and drive aren't in full force. You can't help but feel motivated with whatever you're working on when you read this and it makes you feel like you can do absolutely anything if you put your mind to it.
This Is For You by Rob Ryan: I'm not even sure how to describe this, it's a collection of words alongside beautiful illustrations. It's said to be for people who believe in love but don't know how to explain it and it sums up my feelings on the subject perfectly. I won't get too personal here but if you find love a tough subject to figure out then try and find this and give it a read and things will just click into place.
Little Women by Louisa May Alcott: Technically this is cheating because I've not read this more than once when writing this, but I will. I fell completely in love with the story at the beginning of the year and I can't wait to revisit the world of the March sisters. It's not an easy read by any means, it's not something you can dip in and out of at your leisure but it's just too incredible not to read again as I think we can all learn something from this compelling story.
Pretty Honest by Sali Hughes: Since receiving this for Christmas, I've read it so much that I'm beginning to think that I know it word for word. It's a book that I go to constantly when I'm in need of some solid beauty knowledge for whatever concern I've got going on. I'm struggling with my skin at the moment so have been re-reading Sali's skincare chapters like crazy. If you're a beauty and literature lover then you need this in your bookshelf ASAP.
The Perks Of Being A Wallflower by Stephan Chbosky: The older I get the more I realise just how much of an introvert I am. Maybe this is why I always re-read TPOBAW at some point in the year, I can relate to the letters that Charlie wrote so much. If you've not read this book then you need to, it's hard to narrow down the reasons why you do, but you just do.
What are the books that you read on repeat?
