On the Bookshelf: August

5th August 2016 by naffy

On the bookshelf The Luxe Life Welcome to a new series on the blog On the Bookshelf: August. Something many of you may not know about me is that I enjoy reading. I always have a book on me and more often than not, you will find me in the section of any shop. It has been a while since I talked about books on the blog so I thought I would share with you some of the books I have recently picked up.

The Checklist Manifesto by Atul Gwande 

I have a problem. I want to do all the things even when I do not have the time to do it all. The Checklist Manifesto is a book dedicated to sharing tips on how to tackle a never ending to do list is small manageable chunks. This book was recommended to me by my friend Holly who is constantly on the go so I am excited o give this a go.

All The Bright Places by Jennifer Niven

I picked this up after seeing it in the #ZoellaBookClub. I had been eyeing up for a while but decided to finally purchase it once I saw it on offer. All the Bright Places  focuses on Theodore and Violet. Theodore is fascinated by death and what it entails where as Violet is someone who focuses on the future. They are both on the brink of committed suicide when they cross paths. The book shares their story and how their lives entwine.

Fangirl By Rainbow Rowell 

Fangirl has been on my bookshelf for the longest time, however I only just recently opened this and got stuck in to it. It is about two sisters who are use to do everything together but attending university have forced them to live operate lives and figure things out on their own. It is a book surrounding self discovery. I really enjoy Rowells writing style so while this is not my usual book of choice I am enjoying it.

The Luxe Life by Fleur De Force 

There is something about a beautiful book cover which makes all the difference when you are a collector of books. The reason I am saying this is the cover of  The Luxe Life by Fleur De Force is one of the most stunning covers I have seen in a very long time. The copper is a inspired touch against the white and the photography is beautiful.

Covers aside, the book is filled with tips and tricks to living your best life whether it is learning about food or how to create a day to night look. I and half way through it so far and it is a great read.

I am planning to read atlas two of these books during the month of August so we shall see how that goes.

What books are on the bookshelf for you this month? Do you have any book recommendations?  send me a tweet and let me know.

    Since the release of Cursed Child I’ve been loving books so much too! Fangirl is definitely one that I’m looking forward to buying. If you ever want to read a classic, I recommend The Picture of Dorian Gray. I finished it 2 weeks ago and still can’t stop thinking about it! xx
