I’m headed to Bali tomorrow for a week and these are the books I’ve packed:
Not that kind of Girl, Lena Dunham (aka the most Instagrammed book in the world)
The Rosie Effect, Graeme Simsion (follow up to hugely popular book, The Rosie Project)
I think I need one more though because I have a 6 hour train ride to Perth, a 3ish hour flight to Denpasar and then countless hours by pools, swilling cocktails. So comment with your recommendations please! I’m not into fantasy though, so no Hunger Games or GoT or Twilight etc.
I went through a very long period at the end of last year and the start of this year where I just couldn’t read. I couldn’t concentrate for long enough to get through a few pages and then I would pick the book up again and have to re-read parts and it was just a disaster. I’m no expert but I think it had something to do with constantly being plugged into my iPhone, work computers, Macbook etc. I was constantly stimulated by multiple screens and a book just couldn’t cut it. I’m so glad I’ve moved past that!
Last Bali trip I read an incredible, laugh out laugh, tear inducing book called How to talk to a Widower by Jonathan Tropper. So that is my recommendation to you. It was completely unlike any book I would usually read, but so great.
Has anyone read Gone Girl? I saw the movie and now I’m curious about the book, is it worth picking up?
