These are the books that I have found recently and wanted to share, because not only do I want them, but you might be inspired too!
1.) Roses From The Earth - The Biography of Anne Frank by Carol Ann Lee 'Anne Frank's diary is the most widely-read book after the Bible, yet never before has a biography of her been published. Carol Anne Lee has been allowed access to previously unpublished documents and gives a definitive account of Anne Frank's short life before, during and after the diary.' I'm very interested in all things Anne Frank, as I think she is such a phenomenal figure from history, so I really want to pick this one up soon!
2.) Having heard so many great things about Patrick Ness, I have decided that next I want to read anything by him! His latest novel 'Release' sounds particularly good.
3.) Men Without Women by Haruki Murakami. Not only is this book beautiful to look at, but it sounds like something I would really enjoy. A short collection of stories about different mens' lives without women in them. It just sounds intriguing, and I haven't read any of Haruki's work, so I would like to.
4.) Donna Tartt - The Secret History. 'Under the influence of their charismatic classics professor, a group of clever, eccentric misfits at an elite New England college discover a way of thinking and living that is a world away from the humdrum existence of their contemporaries. But when they go beyond the boundaries of normal morality their lives are changed profoundly and for ever.' I enjoy books set in universities and about out of the ordinary circumstances. Donna Tartt's other work 'The Goldfinch', I thought was fantastic.
So there you have it! My next bookish wishlist, maybe there is a book here that you'll enjoy too.
