Hey everyone


One thing that I'm loving about having a full-time job now is the fact that I get time to read every single day - after spending years trying to fit in my book addiction in between studying it's lovely to be able to dedicate one hour a day (my lunch break) to being internet-free and allowing myself to get lost in a book.

With my love of books being indulged on a daily basis now I've managed to create a reasonable reading pattern and can usually manage to get through two to three books a week (I'm a total bookworm as you can tell!) so I thought I'd share some of my most favourite recent reads with y'all...

The Silkworm by Robert Gailbraith - Oh wow - this book was incredible! I loved the first book in this series so much when I read it last summer (read my review {here}) and I certainly wasn't disappointed by the sequel. This book follows a private detective who is investigating an author being murdered following the script of his latest novel. The way that this crime was explored throughout the novel was so clever - I never suspected who committed the murder at all! Mind you, amazingly intricate plot lines are to be expected from JK Rowling, right?!

The One and Only by Emily Griffin - I read this book as part of the {Blogger Book Club} and was pleasantly surprised by how much I enjoyed it. I'm not usually one to go for sports related books but this one was palatable thanks to it being about a Southern college town's obsession with American football (we all know I'm a sucker for anything Southern :P). What really had me gripped in this book was the development of the relationship between Shea and Coach - I found myself rooting for it right from the very beginning!

Just One Day/Just One Year by Gayle Forman - Awww these books! The first novel in this duology follows the main character's whirlwind day in Paris with a complete stranger and eventually how she copes when he leaves her to fend for herself, the subsequent months of her pining after him following 'that day' and then her journey to try and find him again. I'm a sucker for a good defying the odds love story and this is certainly it. The sequel is basically the same story (following on from when he left her in Paris) but told from the guy's point of view. I loved this extra dimension this gave to the story, I found being able to see the events from both points of view really made me root for the couple to end up together even more!

I'm always looking for book recommendations so I hope these have piqued your interest if you are too! 

I'd  also love it if you could leave me your recent reads in the comments!
