Celebrating world book day – 5 books to read in 2015

Celebrating World Book Day

Happy world book day! A day designed to celebrate authors, illustrators, books and of course, reading. My teacher friends tell me that there will be a lot of dressing up as fictional characters going on; for me I’ll be at work but hoping to have a read when I get into bed tonight. Go on – who would you dress up as today? I might have opted for Matilda, she’s so cool.

To celebrate the day I wanted to share with you 5 books I plan to read this year. My lovely family gifted me with these over Christmas, Valentine’s and my birthday. I’ve already started reading The Shock of the Fall.

5 books to read in 2015
  1. We Are All Completely Beside Ourselves by Karen Joy Fowler – one of the biggest books of last year, I’m looking forward to seeing if it lives up to the hype.
  2. The Shock of the Fall by Nathan Filer – the 2013 Costa book of the year, I like that I don’t know anything about this book.
  3. #GIRLBOSS by Sophia Amoruso – I’m all for a bit of female empowerment and I’ve seen a few creatives talking about this one recently.
  4. Yes Please by Amy Poehler – I love Amy and I love Leslie Knope.
  5. The Complete Mary Poppins by P. L. Travers – A couple of years back I saw a documentary about P. L. Travers and, as well as seeing Saving Mr. Banks, I’m curious about the original stories.

Oh, and my favourite book of all time? Captain Corelli’s Mandolin.

If you’re interested in expanding your reading horizons in 2015 I’ve sourced a few articles I think you might like:

Next week I’ll be sharing my next book review – but catch up on my previous book reviews over here.

    Always great to find some new books to add to the ‘to read’ list. Thanks so much for including my post in your round up.
