ok, so i have a couple trips coming up and i want your book suggestions!
the last few books i've read have been decent, but nothing too special.
have you read an amazing book lately? - i'd love to hear your recommendations :)

you're the best, guys!

  1. Lately I'm recommending Imagine: How Creativity Works by Jonah Lehrer to everybody. It's non-fiction and it's heavy on the neuroscience, but Jonah Lehrer is young & writes in a lighthearted tone that keeps things interesting. Also interesting is his pic on the dust jacket (rawr!) but maybe that's just me, ha ha!

  2. Oh my gosh. I have so many books to recommend for you, Jules! Anything by John Green will give you hope and just get you thinking about life in general. I'd recommend "The Fault in Our Stars."

    If you want something more action and urban-fantasy related, Cassandra Clare's Mortal Instrument's books are fun. You get warlocks, demons, fighters, humor, and lots of plot twists. They are very engaging books.

    If you just want straight up fluff and cuteness, Stephanie Perkins probably is your lady. I have only read previews of her works, but "Anna and the French Kiss," and "Lola and the Boy Next Door," are books adored and recommended by many in the book-reviewing community.
    Happy reading!

  3. I just recently read The Forgotten Garden by Kate Morton and loved it perfect if you like romantic stories about fairy tales and abandoned gardens. Also read Paris in Love by Eloisa James. Really liked it. It's a memoir and written in little snapshots so it would be easy to start and stop when travelling.

  4. I got a kindle for my birthday last year and it's still in its box. I just love books! My most recent read was Memoirs of an Imaginary Friend by Matthew Green. I did a review of it on my blog but basically it's a story told from the perspective of a little boys imaginary friend. Really interesting and unique read, would definitely recommend it for a trip :) xx

  5. If you want something really easy and girly and romantic and hard to put down, The Lucky One by Nicholas Sparks was surprisingly good! I mostly read literary books (I feel like I have to after doing an English degree!) so it was a nice departure from all that!

  6. Oh, and I just read The Great Gatsby and it was so good!

  7. Eeee I have a whole list of books I want to read! I was reading 'Flowers for Algernon' recently and I loved it but haven't had time to get really into it considering I work all the time. Also don't know if it'd be HAPPY reading for a vacation?

    I DO however suggest Perks of Being a Wallflower, and not just because the movie's coming out! It's been a favourite of mine for a long time :)

  8. Not sure what your tastes are in books, but 'The Flying Troutmans' by Miriam Toews; ditto 'The Sweetness at the Bottom of the Pie' by Alan Bradley, and 'Moral Disorder' by Margaret Atwood.

    Let us know what you choose (and your opinions of them!)

  9. Okay, just found your blog today and I love it, jsyk.

    Having said that, and not knowing your taste in books, my favorite is Stargirl. Yeah, its like a middle school level book, but honestly is my favorite book (and i read a lot). It really shaped who I am and encouraged me to be my own, unique person. I love it.

    Stop by and say hi sometime!

  10. Found you through The Marvelous Flight of Cara - your blog is so adorable!

    This post makes me wish so, so much that I had time to read these days. There really is nothing quite like a good book.

  11. The best book I've read this past year was One Day by David Nicholls. It was made into a movie but we all know that books are fantastical! I devoured this book & the deeper meaning behind the title. It is effortlessly written.

    Have a wonderful time soaking up sunshine & sea air!
